Yuvan Shankar Raja is on a roll these days. after a sequence of stunning hits, he keeps his good work going with a stunning variety in Oru Kalorien Kathai featuring Arya and Sonia Agrawal in the lead roles.
For this youthful romantic subject, Yuvan has come out with predominantly melodious numbers.
Interestingly, a soft, free-flowing number Kangal Kalangida features three times in the album sung by different singers.
Harish Raghavendra, Kay Kay, Unni Menon, Sujatha among others have sung in the album. Yuvan has certainly lived up to the expectations and no doubt the album would top audio charts.
1) Kadhal Enbathu (Chinmayi, Harish Raghavendra)
With Chinmayi and Harish Raghavendra coming together, the song opens with a lot of promise. Especially Harish with his immaculate voice adds grace and charm. Chinmayi, who is obviously highly talented, adds her own charm to the number. As it goes on, the song gathers pace with beats. It is soft enough to soothe any frazzled nerve.
2) Kangal Kalangida (Karthik) The song, reminding one of the earlier tunes of Yuvan's father (Illayaraja), begins very briskly and leaves a magical spell on the listeners when it ends. Karthik seems to maturing song after song and this one is an perfect example to it. The pick of the album, surely.
3) Kangal Kandadhu (Kay Kay, Sujatha)
An extension of the previous number. This time Kay Kay has the company of Sujatha. The latter adds the neccessary vigor for the song to make it sound even better.
4) Kangal Kandadhu (Ganga, Ranjith)
After Sujatha and Kay Kay, it's he turn of Ganga and Ranjith to sing the song again. They too have shown the acumen to come up with the goods.
5) Podu (Kay Kay, Ranjith) The rocking number in the album. Supposedly a song being sung by students in their college campus, it is full of beans and the earthy tune is heightened by the effective use of percussion instruments. Kay Kay and Ranjith show that they are good at mass numbers. Yuvan's orchestration is original.
6) Unakku Endru Oruthi (Unni Menon) What else but a soft melodious number can one expect when it features Unni Menon. As usual to expectations, Unni Menon does his part well. A brief number in the album.
7) Dhalappa Kattuda (Sriram) A racy number featuring Sriram. His voice reminds one of Mano in his heydays. Touching the higher pitch with ease, Sriram has done a noteworthy job. This young lad has in him enough to make it big.
8) Geetha Mala (Devan, Ranjith, Sounder Rajan) A fusion of western peppy tunes and local rustic dappanguthu, it is sure to make it big. It begins with a bang with tharai and thappatai. Watchout for debutant Soundararajan who sings the number with such ease. Equally impressive is Yuvan using the guitar to its optimum.
