Rameswaram – Music Review
From a movie about refugees and their impending future, told from a youngster’s perspective, all you would expect would be songs that are sad and uninspiring. You would be surprised, go ahead and read our review;

Alaigallin Osai - Haricharan, Kalyani
Lyrics: Kabilan

A melodious number that opens with excellent use of wind
Rameswaram

instruments and a nice rhythm that slowly sets in with great rendition by both Haricharan and Kalyani. Song talks about the hero expressing his plight as a refugee and how he would not be the right choice for the heroine who says she can comfort him in spite of all his troubles. Some interesting lyrics by Kabilan.

Rameswaram
Ellorayum Ethipoga - Haricharan, Manicka Vinayagam, Reshmi, Suriya
Lyrics:
Kabilan

This song has already captivated Tamil refugees all over the world, an excellent blend of meaningful lyrics and an ensemble of singers with varied voices. A song probably sung by refugees trying to cheer themselves up reminiscing their happy days back home. Music starts with a violin piece and then drum beats and a harmony that leads to a small child’s voice - a good build up. Kabilan's lyrics have elevated it to a different plane altogether, placing the burden on the visuals to enhance it even further.

Naan Tharai Nila - Swetha Mohan
Lyrics:
Yugabharathy

About the heroine explaining her personality and her desires all in one song. Not new, concept wise, but lyrics are good. Let’s get to the music part, this one doesn’t disappoint any bit but doesn’t surprise you either, perhaps it belongs to the kind that might grow on you.


Netirunthom Engal - Arun OS
Lyrics:
Na. Muthukumar

The song commiserates with the lives of the refugees. Seems like a song that is picturised on refugees staring at a bleak future. Again appropriate lyrics accompanied by very subtle orchestration. Arun is a promising find, one to look for in the future, for his high pitched rendition.

Yaedho Senja - Chinmayee, Ranjith
Lyrics:
Yugabharathy

Reminds you of Aaathangara Maname from Kizhakku Cheemaiyele at first but on repeated listening reveals the layers. Not in the league of the other songs but Chinmayee’s voice clearly is the highlight, post Sahana she seems to be all the more comfortable singing along different scales. Beats are not very different, supposedly an attempt by the director to please the masses and still strike a balance with some interesting instrumental bits interspersed in between foot tapping beats.

Theme Music - Niru

The haunting score explains the certain under current that can be heard in all the songs befitting theme. Interesting orchestration and arrangement of wind and string instruments, lending it a touch of class. It’s been some time since CD’s have come out with theme music in them.

Verdict:

All those searching for some soul stirring melodies, this one is for you. Niru showed a lot of promise in his first movie Kalaba Kaadhalan and in this outing he has shown, he is the one to look out for. Keep up the good work Niru.
