Following the success of his debut Sundarapandian, director S.R.Prabhakaran teams up with Udhayanidhi Stalin and Nayantara for his next outing, Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal, featuring the music of Harris Jayaraj.
Seasoning with some “Keechan” powder and crafting a song in a country-reggae feel , the composer caters to the listeners just a simple replication , that is easy to understand. Karthik takes the responsibility to polish it and provide some engrossing performance to make up for the not-so pursuing tune. Enjoy just an half portion !
Singers: Harini, Harish Raghavendra
A trademark Harris tune, that is similar to several other ones coming from him, is based on a Ananda bhairavi raagam. It moves slow-tad with colourless music having the guitars, cowbells on the stage .Harish and Harini’s vocals deliver the goodness with their singing and that saves the number.
Sara Sara Saravedi
Singers: KK, M.K.Balaji, Srilekha Parthasarathy
A cool-uber song comes out of no-where and resembles the folk-style that the composer had tried out in his early career. The guitar slicks with the ghatam and few programmed sounds to bring a nice melody. The lyrics too , sit exactly the way the music is. KK and Srilekha is back with Harris for a fine comeback in Tamil after a long time.
Singers: Aalaap Raju
The driving bassline is the one that is observed , if you are looking for something in the song. It has a pathos texture carrying a light mood .Though Aalaap Raju’s emotive singing tries best , the gospel strains make it so flat and simple.
Singers: Jassie Gift, Jayamoorthy, Velmurugan
What kind of kuthu song , would one except just after massive popular “Venaam machan”- it is just the scintillating groove and teaming of rustic voices. The tune doesn’t run out of action and the singers try the song , what was said in the media as a type of villupaatu song tried out , but it doesn’t seem
to be like that. Just look out for the energy , fun and good music .
Picks of the album – Sara Sara vedi , Melae Melae , Pallaakku Devadhaiya, Anbe Anbe
Bottomline – Post Oru kal kannadi , Harris and Udhayanidhi gang up once again , to give what the audience likes , but falls short , if measured on consistency in variety. It is great to see singers like KK , Srilekha , Jassie gift ,making a mark for themselves still now in Tamil. A supposedly fine album with clear note “ Idhu Harris-udan album”
