Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu
 
Music review By Malathy Sundaram

Produced by K. Anand Chakravarthy. Directed by Susindhran and starring Saranya Mohan, Vishnu, Kishore. V. Selvaganesh has composed music for this film which has five songs.

Kabadi Kabadi---
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan

A song brimming with spirit and inspirational lyrics. Starts with ‘Mannai thodu Maarbil idu ‘ and goes on to say’unnai kodu, onru padu’ (thought provoking)

Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu

etc; the vocals are as spirited as the musical interludes are soft. An interesting contrast. The refrain ‘kabadi kabadi kabadi’ almost makes you feel all the dust and action! Of course faultless rendering by Shankar Mahadevan.

Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu
Laesaa Parakkudhu---
Vocals: Karthik, Chinmayee

Very soft homely lyrics set to an interesting melody here. A song of young love with no shade of vulgarity at all and a joy to listen to. The flute essays notes ever so gently and so do the violins and keys. The ghatam and golusu sounds add richness too. The refrain ‘karicchaan kuruvikku’ has some vigorous thavil which contrasts well with the gentle flow of the song. Karthik delights and so does Chinmayee.



Pada Pada---

Vocals: Karthik

Again another soft number by Karthik which speaks in a cutely innocent way of the transforming power of love in a young man. Be it the rhythms, violin, flute or the tinkling sounds from the keys, all have been carefully kept subdued to give maximum exposure to the lyrics. Doesn’t catch your fancy right away, but you get to like it after listening to it a few times.



Uyiril Yaedho---
Vocals: Haricharan

Portrays the aching loneliness that comes from separation in love. Fine articulation by Haricharan with pleasant little gamakas. Again the guitar, keys ( or is it the piano?) are just about

suggestive, never loud. Probably a montage of memories? Short and sweet number.



Vandanam Vandanam--

Vocals: Pandi, Malathy, Maya and Vijay

A very robust and thankfully original native piece, this. Put together in an interesting way, where Pandi and Malathy ( such lively voices) essay one part to the accompaniment of naiyandi melam and native drums and halfway through, a small bit with a western touch, along with which Maya and Vijay sing a pacy sequence. Again we have the native rhythms taking over and at the end, all blend together. Passion interpreted in both raucous and gentle lyrics! Refreshingly different.



Verdict:

The music director needs to be applauded for bravely shunning pounding rhythms, cacaphonic sounds and synthesized notes for most part. The lyrics are such a relief to hear. Each song seems intended to convey a distinct mood. Let us see how the film itself turns out.
