 Jannal Oram

Ennadi Ennadi ★★★½☆

Singers: Tipu, Vishal

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Sounds synonymous to the film’s name starts out with the trigger of a bus engine at first,followed by converations,highlighting the bus’s encounters on the road affirming it for romanticizing the countryside. It makes you recall the magic Vidyasagar weaves with his songs. Tippu and Vishal’s voices are a perfect fit.

Aasa Vecha★★★★☆

Singers: Abirami, Haricharan, Priya Hemesh, Priyadarshini, Tipu, Velmurugan

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A track with a seducing feel inherent in it ,expressed through the vocals by Tippu,Abirami,Priya Himesh and haricharan in a fine manner. The instruments like timpani,Xylophone and flute used are pretty much relevant to the film’s surrounding. This melody ,too has Vidyasagar stamp on it.

Yela Mala★★★☆☆

Singers: Anuradha Sriram, Velmurugan

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A pathos number,based on ragas Vasantha and Revathi,features Anuradha Sriram, who gets to sing a good fine track to prove her prowess after a long time and supporting her is Velmurugan. He has added another character to his basket ,singing a slow song. Emotions seem to gel with the lyrics.

Unna Paakama★★★★☆

Singers: Abirami, Haricharan, Sicily

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

An orchestral wind hits the listener with its neatly defined song structure. Though the melody is simple and direct ,the composer manages to make it even more engaging just like “Potta Kuruviyo” song from Munniyaandi Vilangiyal moondaraamaandu and makes it a exchange of words between the male and female singers. Total fulfillment!!

Athili Puthili★★★½☆

Singers: Aishwarya, Aravindh, Aslitha, Harish, K.Lakshman, Rishi

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A jumpy mood sets in ,with performances of children choir, synth sounds and untuned horns when you hear it. It sounds similar like the song in ‘Dum Dum Dum’ in the same name. But the children need to be credited for singing like professionals. The rhythm is smooth and edgy.

Aatho Apattho★★★☆☆

Singers: Boopalam Prakash, Senthil

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A self explanatory song about the film and the characters involved ,done in a traditional villu  paatu style, rockets off with humorous narrations. One interesting thing about the number is the song flow, modulation, naiyaandi and connect between the lines it has, for a song of this type needs these ingredients.

Picks of the album: Unna  Paakama , Aasa Vecha Manasula, Ennadi Ennadi , Yela Mala

BottomlineVidyasagar has belted out brilliant melodies in the past and has continued to do the same for this film too. The tunes are relishing and will linger in your lips for the voices.Listeners will get to hear Tippu in almost half the tracks after a long time and he walks away with the cake. Overall , a good album with some variety to look for.

Album Rating: ★★★★★★½☆☆☆
