Kanden is an upcoming movie which has Santhnoo Bhagyaraj and Rashmi Gautham in the lead with Santhanam, Vijayakumar and Ashish Vidyarthi in supporting roles. Directed by AC Mugil, Kanden's music has been scored by Vijay Ebenezer, who worked with Harris Jayaraj as an associate. The album was launched recently and the first copy was released by Gautham Menon.

Enge En Idhayam...

Vocals: Dr. Burn, Krish, Prashanthini
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

Kandaene... sets the tempo for the rest of the album. It is a melody with a medium-paced rhythm which is soft and good to listen to. The song may evoke interest if we listen to it more. Though it is a neat composition, we feel that we cannot categorize it as very special. At the same time, we cannot dismiss this as just another melody number. A good start to the album!

Oru Paaravai...

Vocals: Gurupriya, Krish
Lyrics: Krish

Another melody follows. With Krish's lyrics, Gurupriya and Krish himself generate the right pathos. With very simple and neat arrangements, the song could be the 'loving couples' favourite. The electronic flute in the second interlude is brilliant.


Vocals: Haricharan. Suchitra
Lyrics: Krish

Haricharan and Suchitra render this 'happy-feel' song with ease. A slightly fast-paced song, Narmada has lovely strums of guitar sprinkled all over. Suchitra's voice is slightly low key when compared to Haricharan but another youth-filled breezy song.

Devan Ekambaram
Lyrics: Ravindran

A short song, compared to the others. Reminds us of his mentor Harris' such attempts in his earlier movies. Devan Ekambaram's voice is captivating. Another soft one that emphasizes the mood of the album!

Sort and sweet number. Cannot go unnoticed that easily as the simple yet profound lyrics rendered with clarity with not much of interventions touch you just like that.

Ah Haa...
Vocals: Krish, Ujjayinee
Lyrics: Thamarai

A peppy number, Ah Haa has Thamarai's poesy lyrics sung wonderfully by Krish. The same kind of arrangements as seen in earlier songs: A basic rhythm, drums and guitar strums. The song does not deviate anywhere and hence sounds good.

Yavarukum Thalaivan...
Vocals: Chinmayi, Senthil Dass
Lyrics: Vaali

Chinmayi's voice is immediately captivating at the start of the song. Vaali's lyrics are delightful. The slightly different, folksy and classical interludes come as a surprise in this song. Senthil Dass joins Chinmayi in the end and makes it enjoyable. A Good listen!

Vocals: Rahul Nambiar, Samcy, Sheeba
Lyrics: Ravindran

Casanova has a slightly western influence but Rahul Nambiar's voice is pronouncing enough to make the music sit on the backseat. Another short song, this one has a dose of English lyrics too.


Overall, Kanden, as an album, has a stamp of authority from Harris Jayaraj. Predominant use of guitars and drum beats are quite evident in most of the songs. It is also evident that Vijay Ebenezer has decided to play it safe in his first music album sans experiments. The music is fresh, the voices are youthful and the lyrics peppy which is why Kanden appeals to us as an album. One deterrent in this album is that the songs project sameness in feel, but otherwise it is quite a decent effort for a newcomer.
