Fresh from the success of Arindhum Ariyamalum, Vishnuvardhan is directing Pattiyal, which stars two young guns Arya and Bharath in the lead roles. Giving them company are Pooja and Padmapriya.
Yuvanshankar whose tunes in Arindhum Ariyalamum were a crucial factor in the movie's success has yet again come up with another rocking show.
The highlight is a racy song sung by Ilayaraja, where Yuvan has taken few samples from the yesteryear hit song Adaludan Padalai set to tunes by M S Viswanathan then.
Yuvanshankar himself has rendered his voice for a couple of songs. On the whole one gets a fresh feel after listening to these numbers. Vishnu and Yuvan's magic seems to have on work again.
Dei Namma (Vijay Yesudas)
A perfect beginning to the album. Yuvan's racy numbers have good orchestration. Dei Namma is no exception. Vijay Yesudas, who usually sings well within himself, reaches for new frontiers here. He adds pep with his voice. Handled the western beats with elegance, Yuvan certainly shows how to attract the youth set.
Yedhedho (Yuvanshankar, Raja, Shwetha)
Deciding to sing the song himself besides composing it seemingly leaves Yuvanshankar in a relaxed zone. His composed voice, given an able support by Shwetha, is the highlight. Yuvan's harmony is amazing. Seems to have learnt the lessons well from his dad. Yuvan has taken caution to ensure that music doesn't dominate the lyrics of Pa Vijay here.
Poga Poga (Haricharan, Vijay, Saindhavi and Harini Sudhakar)
Known for coming up with foot-tapping numbers mixing the contemporary film music with rap, Yuvan yet again shows his class. Begins with an enchanting rap, the song with youthful voices, has a charming ditty to it. The fresh voices carry the tune forward.. The use of the additional keyboards gives the desired effect. Sure to top the audio charts.
Namma Katulae (Ilayaraja, Roshini)
Perhaps the pick of the album, rendered inimitably by Ilayaraja himself. An enthusiastic and a brisk tune with use of instruments like Thavuil in between, the song is sure to go down well with the masses. Yuvan deserves a pat for mixing Adaludan Padal song from Kudi Irunda Kovil well here. Ilayaraja walks away with the show with aplomb.
Kannai Vittu (Yuvan Shankar, Premji)
Director Vishnuvardhan has a liking for brisk numbers but with different sounds. Having worked with him in Arindhum Ariyamalum, Yuvan seems to have developed a good rapport, understanding his likes and dislikes. He has given the same here. The racy song with peppy beats. The combo Yuvan of Premji in vocals show a rare understanding and are absolutely in sync.
Pattityal is another rocking hit from Yuvan.
