Review by : C. Karthik
Music Director : Vidyasagar
Vocals : Karthik, Anvesha, Chinmayi, Tippu, Shreya Goshal, Hariharan
Lyrics : Pa Vijay
Ilaignan is releasing this weekend and has many distinctions to its credit before its release. Being Kalaignar's 75th film as a story and screenplay writer, this movie has been directed by Suresh Krishna who will be directing his 50th movie of his career. Music is by Vidyasagar and the lyrics for the songs have been written by Pa Vijay, who happens to be the hero of the movie as well.

Mazhayil Kulitha Malarvanam...

Vocals: Karthik, Anvesha

The album opens on a refreshing note and settles down to nice rhythm. Vidyasagar makes you forget that he was missed in Kollywood by producing deluxe music for this song. Karthik and Anvesha infuse blood into Pa. Vijay's lyrics and make this song a memorable romantic number. Watch out for the visuals of this song!

Vocals: Chinmayi

This song again emphasises that Ilaignan is a periodical movie. The richness of the music, especially in the interludes, gives us a feeling of being in the middle of an orchestral ocean. And Chinmayee, with her shrill voice, conveys the pathos intended. Worth listening to!

Neeya Neeya...

Vocals: Tippu

A situational song, Neeya Neeya's opening is as huge as the ship constructed for the movie. But surprisingly, Tippu's voice gets submerged in the ocean of Vidyasagar's music. The song appeals for two reasons: music and lyrics.

Oru Nila Oru Kulam...
Karthik, Shreya Ghoshal

A feel-good romantic number, Oru Nila has Karthik and Shreya Goshal singing with ease. It does not come as a surprise especially from a music director of Vidyasagar's calibre. He does stamp his authority in a lot of places and hence this song is soothing to listen to.

Thozha Vaanam Dooramillai...
Vocals: Hariharan

The chorus right at the beginning of the song is aptly supported by Vidyasagar's grand orchestral accompaniment that follows. An inspirational and revolutionary song, the message is conveniently conveyed by Hariharan, Pa. Vijay and Vidyasagar. The music is rich, grand and is fantastic to listen to.

This song is sure to raise goose bumps when seen on screen blended with the visuals. A royal finish to the album!


Ilaignan's music should be of great strength to the movie when it gets released. The grandeur, which the directed had intended to convey, has been easily put through to the public by Vidyasagar. Lyrics are a great plus to the album and Pa. Vijay must be lauded for his efforts too. The songs must have a greater impact when visualised on the screen. A good album overall!
