VidiyumMunn

Theeradha Mounam (Female Version) ★★★½☆

Singers: Tanvi

Lyrics: Girish Gopalakrishnan

A relaxed soft number ,based on Dharmavathi raag has a flat mood driven by compressed beats and vetted play of strings. Tanvi is not in her best this time in the midst of  unusual arrangements and sleeps a lot in almost the entire song . The horn section wakes you up for a little time and goes off ,when the song has just settled. Sad that a good song structure is wasted.

Vidiyadha Iravu ★★★★☆

Singers: Girish Gopalakrishnan, Yasin Nazar, Ramshankar S, Sai Krishna Kumar

Lyrics: Girish Gopalakrishnan

A complete progressive rock song ,that’s wander into unfamiliar territories ,whether its the time signature or the unconventional flow of the lyrics.The Indian element doesn’t cease from the track at all and so the track stays easy to listen . It is evident that the music director wanted something brain cracking and he has evolved his style. There are enough punches , that comes with the seconds  and suddenly the loud drums and distorted guitars kick in. A tight music production show on for all ,who have been expecting good music.

Penne ★★★★☆

Singers: Susheela Raman,Ramshankar S, Shilpa Natarajan

Lyrics: Girish Gopalakrishnan

Susheela Raman, known for her enthralling live performances makes an entry into Tamil cinema through this beautifully constructed song, beginning with the melodica and immediately enters  the  region of haunting melody ,which is sure to please the listeners with its majestic look. The interludes travels in its own way and doesn’t disturb the main subject .

Theeradha Mounam (Reprise Version) ★★★★½

Singers: Girish Gopalakrishnan

Lyrics: Girish Gopalakrishnan

This is a better version than the original, the reason that it is sung by the composer, Girish. The listener will get used his voice after decent number of hearings. Some part of the interludes from the original, have been renovated by a beautiful flute and classical guitar piece with french  horns and soft drum reigning .

Rage ★★★½☆

A certain kind of feel sets in with the introduction of singular sounds of muted,electric guitars in the middle of slow rhythm, yet they are monolithic in their music expression.

Redemption ★★★☆☆

The album closes with yet another instrumental, which starts off with a mild piano act and chimes at the same strokes ,along a kind of vedic chant performed by children choir.

Picks of the Album: Theeradha Mounam (Reprise), Penne, Vidiyaadha Iravu

Bottomline: This album has in it the success note  append,right from the first till the end. Just that, it takes time to get through with the experimental tracks. Girish has bent himself well to give away something worthy and he has also written the lyrics in a dependable way. Despite ,certain parts falling out due to weak vocalization and pronunciation in the tracks covered , these will shine atleast for the tremendous effort.

Album Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
