Lyrics: Pa. Vijay And Ugabharathi

Subramaniya Siva, who has directed successful films like Thiruda Thirudi, Pori and Yogi has chosen to remake the Malayalam film Nandanam in Tamil as Seedan. The film stars Krishna, Ananya, Dhanush (in an extended cameo), Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Vivekh and lyricist Pa.Vijay. Interestingly, Seedan is music director Dhina’s 50th film. Pa. Vijay has penned the lyrics for five songs and Ugabharathi takes credit for one song. Let us see how Dhina has scored with his 50th film.

Munpani Kaala Poovil...
Vocals: Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay

The song begins with carnatic beats and the moment it starts, you know what to expect. The music is very simple and the song is dominated by soft notes from the flute. Shreya Ghoshal’s mellifluous voice cascades high and low pitches with ease and the song sounds like a Krishna Bhajan. The song is a potential hit for Shreya Ghoshal’s voice and her near-perfect Tamil diction.


Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan and Chinna Ponnu
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

The beginning rendition by Shankar Mahadevan in this song reminds us of Pushpavanam Kuppusami’s peppiness and voice. The song is a mix of proper folk and our local kuthu beats. There is some nice and fresh Nadaswaram music which adds the necessary melody to the song. This is a foot tapping number and Shankar Mahadevan and folk artist Chinna Ponnu’s voice flow together seamlessly. The song is here to stay for long.

Enadhu Uyirai...

Vocals: Prasanna & Janaki Iyer
Lyrics: Ugabharathi

Almost all the film albums are never complete without a romantic number. Enadhu Uyirai is a pleasing romantic number. The music is nothing novel but it has a strong classical base with several ‘swaras’ been sung at the beginning and also in between the song. Prasanna and Janaki Iyer’s soft voice is apt for the music and the lyrics. Owing to the popularity of romantic numbers, Enadhu Uyirai might possibly capture the listener’s attention for long.

Saravana Samayal...  
Vocals: Hariharan & Dhanush
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

Hariharan starts the song with a melodious baritone. The song has an eclectic mix of percussion instruments and Nadaswaram. The lyrics are mouth-watering, literally. Dhanush does not sing but says a few dialogues in between and he sounds exactly like a head cook giving instructions. We can be almost sure that the song has been picturized with Dhanush singing and cooking simultaneously. Hariharan’s voice matches quite well for Dhanush. The song’s arrangement reminds us of Enna Samayalo from Unnal Mudiyum Thambi. On the whole, this is the most delightful number in the album.

Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan, Kavitha Krishnamoorthy Subramanian
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay 

This song is a fast number. The pace picks in just 3 seconds into the song and never drops. It has the highest and the lowest of the pitches and Shankar Mahadevan’s voice does complete justice to it. There are classical beats and swaras in this number too. Kavitha Krishnamoorthy’s voice weaves smoothly in between Shankar Mahadevan’s voice. Dhina has used percussion instruments effectively. The song lyrics and pace sounds like it has an extreme emotional quotient - probably in desperation to get back to the loved one.

Oru Naal Mattum...
Vocals: KS Chithra
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay 

This is a solo number by Chinna Kuyil Chithra. The instruments used are very soft, with flute taking the forefront again. The song is nothing novel and heavily banks on Chithra’s voice as the music is very plain.

Verdict: Though most of the songs have a classical flavour, it has the potential to appeal the mass and the class equally due to the nice mix of all genres. Dhina doesn’t try anything different in the album, but it’s still a welcome change from the songs these days which has excess use of guitars, bass, technology and western instruments. This album that revels in good usage of percussion and wind instruments is a pleasant album on the whole and is here to stay for long. And we are sure hoping for a mout
