Thoranai, produced under the GK banner (Vishal’s Home Production), which is directed by debutant Sabha Iyappan, stars Vishal, Shriya Saran, Prakash Raj, Santhanam, Meenakshi and others. This movie is being simultaneously released in Telugu too. Mani Sharma has tuned six songs for the album, with one song being repeated. How much of Telugu flavor does this album exude? Let us check out.


Vedi Vedi Saravedi---
Vocals: Ranjith, Navin
Lyrics: Vivekaa

Though you are tempted to say that this song is nothing different from the usual fast-paced title songs, there is something peppy about this rendition that could be catchy, as there is a frequent variation of rhythm patterns. Ranjith and Navin combine well. This song is on the Natabairavi scale.

Vaa Chellam---

Vocals: Udit Narayan
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

A breezy, comical number, this! And no claims to originality, either, being a mix of musical forms! But it amuses you because of the lyrics where the chorus goes warning the heroine all the time and ends up surveying the damage done! Lively guitar bits, sax and violins add value to this song in the ‘thisra’ (3) beat rhythm. Udit Narayan is as lively as ever! Could hop on to the charts.


Vocals: Vijay Yesudas, Janani
Lyrics: Kabilan

Quite a cute melody! Never mind the distinct ‘Andhra’ stamp to it. And with Shriya’s dancing skills, it could be a hot one too. Conceived on the Karaharapriya scale, this song has a refreshing blend of native percussion instruments (like ghatam), and the drums. Of course, you hear some guitar, veena and keyboard sounds too. There is an attractive shyness about Vijay’s rendering.

Vocals: Ranjith, Rahul, Ritha, Jai.
Lyrics: Vaali

Gosh! Vaali remains so young at heart!! Just listen to the fun lyrics! The song itself is a trendy mix of western and Indian rhythms and quite hummable. One wishes the lady singer’s pronunciation was better. This number too could make it to the charts.

Vocals: Ranjith

Ranjith adds his own pleasant touch to this repeat number.

Manjasela Mandakini---
Tipu, Saindhavi
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

A typical Andhra-style kutthupaattu, which probably could serve as a platform to showcase Shriya’s dancing skills nothing more!


Mani Sharma has moved slightly away from his typical stuff to project a youthful raciness here, which could have been the director’s aim, anyway. Attractive rhythms and stylish music is what this album is about. Don’t look for any lingering melody.
