Arai En 305il Kadavul: Music review By Malathy Sunderam
An eagerly awaited summer special from the house of Shankar (producer) with Simbudevan as director and Vidyasagar scoring the music. As per the director's own words, this movie features two well known comedians Ganja Karuppu and Santhanam as heroes based out of the middle-class belt of Triplicane. They appear as Raasu and Mokkai. They undergo an odd fantasy experience halfway through the movie with amusing results. Madhumitha and
Arai En 305il Kadavul
Jyothirmayee are the two heroines. Five songs are featured in the movie.

Lyrics: P.Vijay, Vocals: Vineeth, Jayamurthi

The fun conversation at the beginning indicates clearly that the heroes are in the middle of a fantasy. They appear to be on the moon! Cheeky references to the 'moon' culled from old movies makes one smile. They feel God-like, and plan to expand over Jupiter, Mars, practically everywhere! Funky synthesizer-music reinforces the fantasy feeling. Impish, Latin music-like effort from a melody master!

Kadhal Sei:

Lyrics: N.Muthukumar, Vocals: Vidyasagar

A nice surprise from Vidyasagar! The song advocates an expansive flow of love that reminds you of J.Krishnamurthy! Nature, life, people, animals, nothing is spared. We are asked to embrace everything. Sunny beats too! Vaguely reminds you of 'Unnai Arindaal' from an old MGR movie. Even the tone of the song has a distinct MGR feel to it. Pleasant lyrics from Muthukumar. The whistling at the end is quite jaunty. Vidyasagar sounds somewhat tentative here.

Arai En 305il Kadavul
Aavaaram Poovukkum:
Lyrics: Kabilan, Vocals: Shreya Ghosal

The song opens with energetic drumbeats that beautifully slide into a folksy 'Themmangu' beat immediately. Portrays the heady romantic feelings of a young girl in love. The mellifluous voice of Shreya effortlessly pours forth many shades of emotions. Lovely use of the shehnai. The refrain ‘Iyaare Iyaare manam thayyare thayyare' is very hummable. The song has a nice 'Kerala' rhythm to it. With evocative photography, could become a hit.

Thenralukku Nee:

Lyrics: Yugabharathi, Vocals: Karthik and Swetha Mohan

Images from everyday life that portray sweet togetherness have been lyrically strung together in this duet. Phrases like 'Muttratthukku nee Veppamaram' are lovely. What is interesting about this song is that the interludes seem to do some 'billing and cooing' of their own. Makes you wonder how it has been filmed. Quite cute, really.

Kuraionrum illai:
Lyrics: Muthulingam, Vocals: Harini

A surprising twist to the well-known M.S.Subbulakshmi hit originally composed by Rajaji. Of course only the pallavi is used

here. Simple but inspiring lyrics. Sung plaintively in a sweet voice by Harini.The interludes faithfully follow the raga Sivaranjani right through. Haunting use of flute. leisurely beats befitting the mood of the song.


A nice variation of song three…probably with the second heroine?


Usually melody-conscious Vidyasagar has attempted a slightly different modern kind of music here, probably in keeping with the unusual theme of the story. He has to be appreciated for not resorting to aggressive beats that sometimes leaves you all knotted up inside with tension! The songs take time to grow on you. A nice try!
