Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moondramandu Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moondramandu
Music review By Malathy Sunderam
Directed by’ Mettioli’ Thirumurugan. Produced by Datho Rena. Duraisingam, K.Karunamurthi.

Starring Bharath, Poorna and Vadivelu. Thirumurugan’s Em Magan was well received and this movie too is being looked forward to by filmgoers. Especially with Vidyasagar scoring the music. The story, set in a possible rural milieu, deals again with the father-son relationship. Five songs have been tuned for the movie. What has Vidyasagar come up with this time?
Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moondramandu

Kombu vitta kaalaiyenna

Vocals: Tippu, Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A song for the college-going youth, obviously. Appears to be based in Sriraga, with the note’ri pa ma ri ga ri sa’ adding a lot of charm. Assertive and attractive articulation by Tippu. Celebrates the fact that today’s young men are aware of both technology and the demands of rural life! God Muniyandi is being invoked too.

Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moondramandu
Vocals: Haricharan and Mahati, Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Lyrics are suggestive of youthful passions and have been sung with polish by both the singers. Looks like a western interpretation of Karaharapriya with’pa saa sa saa ni’ swaras lending gaiety to the song. The interludes are soft and flowing and the refrain’Adai mazhai kaattukkulle’ tumbles along like a brook to the lower octaves making an interesting diversion.

Kodangi vandirukken

Vocals: Manikkam Vinayagam and Anuradha Sriram, Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Kodangi means a soothsayer ( or an exorcist too) and one expects Vadivelu to do the honours here. Manikkam Vinayagam’s voice has a soothing charm of its own with its depth. Anuradha Sriram has varied her sruti slightly and is fun to listen to, as usual! However, it is the western interludes before her singing that are very well conceived, possibly in Mayamalavagowla. Since this is a ‘pei ottum’ song, all the right percussion instruments salangai, etc; have been used heavily .Quite nice to listen to, although it is an old ‘mettu’.

Kattippidikkum karadiyai
Vocals: Jayamurthi, Malathy Laxman, Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Vairamuthu is in his element here. The song touches upon the

age –old prejudices involved in the man versus woman arguments but in a light-hearted way. Malathy has a ball here, with her powerhouse of a voice! Jayamurthi does not lag behind too. Reminds one of Pushpavanam Kuppusami. A fast paced song, of course.


Vocals: Tippu, Manikkam Vinayagam, Pravin mani, Jayamurthi

Just a remixed version of a couple of lines from the previous four songs.


Though Vidyasagar has imaginatively used some interesting chords in these songs, somehow the rhythms weigh heavily upon us at the end. One wishes softer orchestra music had been used at least for a couple of songs. Some really energetic dancing could accompany them. Vairamuthu’s output is uneven, too! Sometimes words seem to be too packed! Let us see how listeners react!
