Pandia-naadu is sort of a come-back film for Vishal , directed by Sussenthiran ,  who gave the recent Aadhalaal kadhal seiveer and the trailer seems to be pretty promising. The Music is by D.Imman and the album consists of 5 tracks and 3 karaokes.

Pandianadu

Yaeley Yaeley  Marudu★★★½☆
Singer :   Suraj Santhosh
Lyrics :   Vairamuthu

A soothing melody with a guitar strumming at the start followed by bass slaps, trance, electronic sounds makes the groove rhythmic. The vocals by Sooraj Santhosh is perfect for this tic-tac song. This reminds of Imman’s “Rendu” album songs in terms of the Spanish-pop style it adopts.

Othakada Othakada★★★★☆
Singer : Hariharasudhan, Sooraj Santhosh
Lyrics : Vairamuthu

A simple fun song  in pure Deva style, sung by Hariharasudhan strikes the right chord again just like his “Oodha colour ribbon”  with Sooraj joining for a small time company. Imman follows the same folk style as his previous films for this introduction song too. It is filled with lyrics in a easy-to-relate way and the sounds of blowing trumpets, thapatam, cremona mandolin used, serve the purpose. Nevertheless, a neat song to capture the listeners’s attention.

FY FY FY kalachify★★★★☆
Singer : Ramya Nambeesan
Lyrics : Madhan Karky

The best song in the album, no second thoughts. This one, sung in an unslacking manner by Ramya Nambeesan and rides the Pandianaadu road with rocking guitars, lunch dabbas and carnatic violins on its way.

Veri konda Puli Ondru (Revenge Mode)★★½☆☆
Singer :  Anand Aravindakshan
Lyrics: Vairamuthu 

A track with racy setup of strings carrying quite an intense feel, gains momentum at the end with the flutes giving occasional company. The vocal portions clearly shows the aping of Suraj Jagan’s “Yaarendru therigiradha” from Vishwaroopam by Anand, if sung in low octane power .

Dayare Dayare ★★★☆☆
Singer : Pawan, Natraj, Anthonydasan, Pazhaniyammal
Lyrics : Vairamuthu 

A native-folk song, which explains the rightful deeds of a dead old man, begins with the invoking “Titanic” bit and is expatiate in the form of voices of Pawan, Natraj, Anthonydaasan and Pazhaniammal delivered in a slight off-pitch path at the initial, but takes you on a high with the pumping energy that it delivers. Also the title of the song is a pun on the word “Die”.

Picks of the album

Othakada Othakada, FY FY FY kalachifying,  Yaeley Yaeley  Marudu, Dayare Dayare

Bottomline: Imman brings out yet another hit for the “Land of Pandiyas” and tries out a few songs, that are different from  run-of-mill  for his first association with Suseendran. He has used a bunch of new singers and has succeeded in it too.

Album Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
