After Irumbukottai Murattu Singam, Chimbudevan comes back with yet another comedy. Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavaanigalum features Arulnithi, Bindu Madhavi, Ashrita Shetty and a long list of an ensemble cast. Music is by Natarajan Sankaran, for whom this is a follow up to his debut Moodar Koodam.

July Madham
Singers: Naresh Iyer
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

The elaborate arrangement of strings and the overall orchestration make for the composer’s scoring area. The melody is pretty and Naresh Iyer’s tender singing goes well with the soft backbeat. 

Moonu Kodi
Singers: Chinna Ponnu, Manicka Vinayagam
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

High on adrenaline and relentless in pace, this folk tune is so fast that the vocals literally play catch-up with the percussions. The singers are tested and they rise to the occasion, Chinna Ponnu especially seems like she’s waiting for her turn again every time she finishes her verse. Interestingly Natarajan Sankaran underplays his big chorus and focuses more on the energetic verses.

Bachelor Enakke
Singers: Gana Bala, Premgi Amaren
Lyrics: Gana Bala

The rhythm that follows Premgi’s awkward announcement of the long film title is totally unexpected if you were awaiting some hip-hop. Natarajan Sankaran has plenty of solid hooks to go with the great groove but for some reason finds himself reluctant to make any one of them the signature tune of the track. Ultimately it’s Gana Bala who makes this number sound great, offering something new in this ‘Surangani’ styled gana. 

Theme Thunder (Trance)
Singers: Instrumental

A very early 90s sounding Techno collage with a very unsophisticated and somewhat child-like hook begins the series of instrumentals that fill the second half of the album.

Theme Storm (Indian)
Singers: Instrumental

More intent and purpose shown in this next instrumental which sticks to the same tempo. The silly-sounding ad libs work better with the Indian percussions.

Theme Breeze (African)
Singers: Instrumental

The composer uses a set of generic African percussions and matches it to the main theme and does no more. After Moodar Koodam, instrumentals were seen as Natarajan Sankaran’s interest area and in that regard the set here is pretty underwhelming.

Theme Marriage
Singers: Instrumental

The album closer is the more intricately designed and executed instrumentals of the lot. The brief segue between the South Indian theme and the church choir is impressive.

Verdict: The album has its moments and good performances.
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
