Kaalai Nila
Singers: Bindhu Malini, Madhu Balakrishnan
Lyrics: Gerald Dhirav

Beginning with the high-pitched folk singing comprehended by hand drums and the sudden transition by Madhu Balakrishnan's moving voice, is a piece of mastery. The swarasthanam in the interludes, subtlety with the percussion and the light-classical flavor is soothing and appealing.

Sing a Song
Singers: Aishwarya, Chorus
Lyrics: Anonymous

The peppy acoustic guitar and the group singing led by a matured voice with lyrics in English reminds us of the 80's classics. Simplest of the album made like an interactive rhyme, sung in kindergartens. This track is cute and nice.

Chinnanchiru Kiliyae
Singers: Chorus, Rakesh Raghunanthan, Yazhini
Lyrics: MahaKavi Subramaniya Bharathiyar

The Mahakavi Subramaniya Bharathiar written song has had numerous versions. But this arrangement of mellifluous piano in the background with a progressive chord progression substantiated with the bass guitars and a very strong singing makes it unique. The sarangi towards the end, reprising the charanam elevates the entire mood to a whole new level.

Naagangal Rendu
Singers: Bindhu Malini
Lyrics: Bramma G

The quirky treatment of the song is soul-stirring and intimidating. Bindhu Malini's singing with the almost mouth closed is a new-age rendition. A bolder emotion is established thanks to the different bowing on a tribal string instrument.

Theriyaamal Annanai
Singers: Chorus, Purisai Sammantham
Lyrics: Bramma G

Kudos to music director Shankar Rengarajan for live recording the musical portion from a street drama. Purisai Sammanthan's unique singing and the authentic strokes on the percussion is a genuine effort.

Theme Music
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

The pianos, the violin, the flute, the udukkai and a lot other psychedelic elements are deep and hard-hitting. Change in the pace of the track symbolizes the tension in the visuals. A haunting and an ambitious effort.

Singers: Josephine Rani
Lyrics: Jebamaalai Irudhayam

Ten minutes of soliloquy is Kannurangu. The passionate and the mournful voice of Josephine Rani heightened of by the chimes and the grand piano is an ambitious potential tearjerker. Hear this pathos on the head-phones and transcend to a new world.

Chinnanchiru Kiliyae (Male)
Singers: Rakesh Raghunathan
Lyrics: Mahakavi Subramaniya Bharathiar

This the slightly jazzed-up male version of Chinnanjiru kiliyae. Lot more sensual and orchestrated this track is. Singer Rakesh Raghunathan has given it all to this song. Special mention to the chorus singers for making it soulful.

Verdict: Poignant and genuine!
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
