Edhai Ninaithom
Singers: G.V.Prakash Kumar
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

A soothing solo with peculiar baritone lead vocals marks an ideal beginning for this versatile album. Mesmerizing guitar strums and neat bass work take the front seat thereby bringing a hopeful musical atmosphere. The interludes leave a classy touch with sultry trumpet solo.

Karuppu Karuppu
Singers: G.V.Prakash Kumar
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

The local slums of Chennai meet New York Hip-hop genre with remarkable style in this track. The track gathers steady pace with amazing perfection and ease.  The digital mixing is done exceptionally well to create a meaningful and entertaining fusion number.

Manjavaave Kaanjachu
Singers: Gaana Bala, Srihari
Lyrics: Rajkumar

Raw folk vocals and old school Jazz are fused impressively with modern digital sequencing in this number. The funny sounding clarinet makes its presence felt throughout the track’s progress thereby retaining the entertainment factor. Gaana Bala’s unpretentious vocals are an asset to this experimental track. The interlude is laced with a violin solo having the essence of western classical music.

Sel Sel
Singers: Satya Prakash
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

A composition which speaks of innocence and optimism! Trance beats and fresh vocals of Satya Prakash add some flavor to the song.  The syncopated rhythm section aids the hopeful ambience and the track also has a mesmerizing Hindustani classical flavor as well.  The delicate Sitar and Shehnai bits which lace around the composition is another biggest asset.

Verdict: Kaakka Muttai is an impressive album from G.V.Prakash which speaks of innocence, hope and good days ahead in musical terms.
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
