Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Laadam: Produced by J.P.Kumar, D.Y.Chowdury for Cosmos Entertainments. Directed by Prabusolomon (of Lee fame) and starring debutant Aravindan, Charmi( after a hiatus in Tamil) Kota Srinivasa Rao ( in an important character), Dheeraj Kher and Babu Antony. The film seems to be a gangster-themed one and is supposed to be an entertainer. Dharan, the music director for this film has received a real fillip with this movie being lapped up by Sony
Laadam

BMG Entertainment. He has tuned in 4 numbers for the movie. Yugabarathi has penned the lyrics.

Gangster

Vocals: Dr. Burn, Jazz (well, well) Benny, Rahul Nambiar

A curious mix of hip-hop and rap here. The words are literally spat out by the singers and you don’t get to understand them easily. Seems to be an ‘arm-flexing’ kind of song. For the young.

Laadam
Siru Thoduthalile
Vocals: Bombay Jayashree, Haricharan

A fairly simple melody with Jayashree using a slightly different, trembly kind of voice to render the number. Talks of the tender thrills of love. Good use of flute and guitars.


Atlantic Oceanukku

Vocals: Suchitra

A song with an almost hedonistic appeal to enjoy life here and today, sung appropriately by Suchitra. The song itself has a techno feel to it. The done-to-death rhythm for this song is enlivened by guitars and some trumpet sounds.



Makkah
Vocals: Jazz, Benny, Haricharan, Rahul Nambiar, Suvi

The word Makkah is a distinct Tirunelveli word used among men. The song is a funny blend of hip-hop rendering tuned to bhangra beats. Another ‘muscle-flexing’ kind of song. Again, could appeal to the youth.




Siru Thoduthalile

Flute Instrumental: Navin Iyer

A pleasant interpretation of song-2, right through the flute with minimal inputs from the strings and keys. A soft rendering from Navin with delicate sangatis.



Verdict:

Well, Dharan is new to the field and it shows in the musical interludes. There is heavy influence of his earlier album Sivi, which got him lots of accolades. He needs to expand on his musical idiom, which, one is certain he will, with time. But, overall, Laadam is worthy a listen.
