Sila Nerangalil – Music Review
After a long time comes a movie with some really soothing melodies. Srikanth Deva is the one with the wand this time and has churned out numbers that are sure to bring a fan following for this upcoming music director. Guess it is the scope to perform that brings out the best in a creator. Kudos to Malayalam director Jayaraj for bringing the best out of Srikanth Deva.

Cell Phonei - Suchitra
Lyrics:
Vairamuthu
Sila Nerangalil

A typical item number song rendered well at high pitch by Suchitra, though she seems to be fast becoming repetitive with such numbers. Lyrics by Vairamuthu have some naughty lines. Orchestration is not too different but interesting mixing though. Catchy and foot tapping, not the type that grows on you, but more of the instant hit or miss kind. The visuals have a lot to do to elevate the song to the next level.

Sila Nerangalil
Embavai Embavai - Reshmi, Senthil Das
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A classical tune well rendered by Reshmi and Senthil Das, a very different number, reminds you of the tunes of the 80’s. Lyrics are classy, a number that will slowly grow on you. Melodies seem to have a nostalgic feel to it.

Ponguthu Ponguthu - Selvaraj, T M Sounderrajan
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Reminiscent of Chandra Babu’s numbers of the 60’s, interesting instrumentation you would have never expected from Srikanth Deva. This composer has more to offer than just rehashed tunes for remakes.


Pottu Vaitha - P Susheela
Lyrics:
Vairamuthu

Mellifluous number and who else can render it with such grace but the one and only P Susheela. Truly great lyrics, another retro number without any digitization, recreating the music of the 60’s. A song that belongs to a different era altogether.


Sila Nerangalil
Thirudapatta Nilavae - Chitra, K S Haricharan
Lyrics:
Vairamuthu

The only new age number, with pretty good arrangement and, however not the kind that would stand out. A sad number, probably the lead pair lamenting about their separation. Doesn’t have too many layers to it but has overall good harmony.


Verdict:

This album showcases the varied talent of Srikanth Deva, just goes to show that given the chance he is one composer who would grab it with both hands. Songs have a retro feel, in line with the mood of the movie. Visuals will play a deciding factor in taking it to the audience.
