Music Review : PUDUPETTAI

    ‘Pudupettai,’ the most awaited release of Dhanush is directed by his brother Selvaraghavan. Lending glamour to the film are Sneha and Sonia who have been paired with Dhanush. As the title suggests, the movie is set in the backdrop of the slums of Pudupettai in Chennai.
Yuvan and Selva share a rapport as in their previous movies and this is reflected in the songs of this film’s album. Yuvan has churned out good music along with Chapraya Symphony Orchestra of Bangkok. And what is special about the album is the fact that Kamal Hasan has sung a song.


1) Puthupettai Main Theme: Survival of the fittest:
The theme music of the movie evolves slowly and the notes on the violin are pleasing to the ear. Yuvan has sought the help of Chapraya Symphony Orchestra to lift the tempo of the theme music.

2) Peak Into Assassin’s life - Nerupu Vayinil: (Kamal Hassan)
A light number sung by actor Kamal Hassan. The lyrics of the song talk about the life of an assassin. The percussion effects add to the song. While Kamal has given his best; the rest is taken care by Yuvan.

3) Our Story - Enga Area: (Dhanush, Premji, Yuvan)
A westernized gana! The song’s lyrics are a highlight and the lines penned by Na. Muthukumar describe the locality where the local goons live. Yuvan has brought out fantastic music with the use of ‘tharai’ and ‘thampattai’ in the beginning.
It is good to hear Premji, the rap singer after ‘Theepidika.’ Dhanush has lent his voice too for this number. But the entire credit for the song goes to Na. Muthukumar for portraying the locality with his lyrics.

4) Selling Dope: The Beginning
An instrumental! The album has an equal number of instrumentals and songs. Music maestro, Ilayaraja is well known for his instrumental and symphonic compositions. Yuvan, his younger son is following in his father’s steps in continuing with the same style. The music on the violin makes an impact and towards the end the song picks up its pace surprising the listeners.

5) It all comes down to this: Oru Naalil – (Yuvan)
A soothing song! Yuvan, who sings song in high pitches, has tried something unusual in this song. His voice is nice even for a song of this genre. The song moves uniformly without much of high and low pitch, with Yuvan’s voice maintaining the right pace. For those who like soft melodies, this song will be well liked.

6) Going thru emotions – Prelude
This is an instrumental which is a blend of Chaprya’s symphony work and Yuvan’s brisk composition. While the tune is pleasing, the use of Carnatic music in the middle of the song is an innovative try.

7) Pul Pesum: (Vijay Yesudoss, Tanvi)
A peppy number reminding one of the song, ‘January Matham,’ of 7G, Rainbow Colony. The voices of the singers are a major plus in the song. Especially, the voice of Tanvi which is unique. Vijay Yesudoss has experimented with his voice.

8) Night Life: Vaariya (Narayan, Ranjith, Vasu, Naveen)
A hard-hitting song! The title rightly describes the song’s mood resembling the night life of a thug in a city. The use of drums at appropriate places makes the song special. The singers who form the chorus of Yuvan’s composition, have done a good job.

9) Clash of the Titans: The war cry
With this kind of instrumental, Yuvan has raised the standards of Indian music to that of Hollywood. The orchestra group has given the right kind of chirping to the tune. Initially, the tune is very fast but ends off slowly giving the feel of a battle-field.

10) Oru Naalil: Composer’s Dream Mix – DJ Rafiq
A party song! This is a fast paced and a foot-tapping number in the album. The song remembers old Ilayaraja’s compositions in the mid 70’s. With a mix of westernized music and Indian sounds, the song sets the mood for a party.

Yuvan is brilliant in terms of his composition and the album can be a mile stone for the young composer.
