KANDEIN KADHALAI MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram

Music Director : Vidyasagar
Vocals : Udit Narayan, Karthik, Hariharan, Suresh Wadhkar, Rahul Nambiar, Lavanya, Rashmi Vijayan, Tipu, Benny Dayal.
Lyrics : Yugabarathy, Na. Muthukumar, Madhan Karkki

Produced by K.Dhananjayan of Moserbaer, directed by R.Kannan, and starring Barath, Tamannah, Munna, Santhanam along with others, this film is a remake of the very successful Kareena-Shahid starrer ‘Jab we Met’. The music for the film was a high point in Hindi. Vidyasagar has taken over the reins in this department here. Let us see what our melody maker has in store for us this time. There are six songs in the movie.

Ven Panju---
Vocals: Udit Narayan, Karthik.
Lyrics: Yugabarathy

A soft number with a slight R&B touch to it that moves elegantly in a wave like pattern. Appears to be the title song. Can Udit and his lisp be parted? He is in full flow here. The delicate keyboard sounds bring you joy, for sure.

Sutthudhu Sutthudhu---
Vocals: Hariharan.
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

Oh, this is such a lovely number where the gentle lyrics, native rhythms and the flute come together so well! Hariharan’s wonderful singing points to a solid hit after his ‘Palapalakkira’ from Ayan. The song appears to take the Natabairavi scale but touches upon Kiravani when we hear the speedy vocal humming’sa ni sa ri ga ri sa ni---‘ which leaves you going ‘wow’! The song seems to end abruptly.

 

Naan Mozhi Arindhaen---

Vocals: Suresh Wadhkar.
Lyrics: Yugabarathy

A song of sweet yearning that moves on Yamuna Kalyani raga. Suresh Wadhkar (a respected playback singer in both Hindi and Marathi films- listeners may remember him in ‘Hum Paanch, Prem Rog, Krodhi etc; to name a few) needs to be applauded for his clear articulation! Again the flute has a field day here combining well with strings. A touch of Hindustani in the second interlude with harmonium sounds, a rapid violin bit and the measured ghatam-like sounds now and then add variety to this number. Could make it to the charts too.




Kaatru Puthithai---
Vocals:
Rahul Nambiar.

Lyrics: Yugabarathy

The rhythm pattern that goes’ sa ri ga ri ga ri ga sa ri’ right through the song points to a song of travel and the lyrics too reflect the liberating feeling that comes with journeying. This number is a bit of a surprise from Vidyasagar, but somehow doesn’t hold your attention.




Ododi Poraen---
Vocals:
Lavanya, Rashmi Vijayan.

Lyrics: Madhan Karkki

Mmmm, this is an interesting number that hops along jumpy rhythms to suit the inner happiness of the lady. Very pleasing violins and keyboard stuff make it a foot-tapping piece. And well sung too!




Oru Naal Iravil---
Vocals:
Tipu, Benny Dayal.
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

Vidyasagar and this? Well, well, the song has a strong element of impishness about it-be it the cute lyrics, the fun music interludes or the singing (both Tipu and Benny rock!). This number seems to be deeply etched into the storyline. Could be loved by the youth.




Verdict:

This album has been composed with a careful eye (or should we say ear?) on the decibel levels which is heartening! Vidyasagar has modified his music to flow suitably with the storyline. The album may not be appreciated right away but a few years down the line, it will be a nice one to come back to!
