Manathil Mayam Seithai is a bilingual romantic film directed by debutant Suresh Kumar. The film stars Sethu, who makes a re-entry after Mynaa, Prince, Richa Panai and Disha Pandey. The film’s music is by Manikant Kadri, son of the legendary musician Kadri Gopinath, for whom this is his second Tamil film after Udayan.

Singers: Karthik
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

A good melody based on the Natabhairavi scale opens this album and features some impressive interludes and a friendly rhythm and pace. Karthik’s singing is spirited, especially towards the fag end of the tune.

Aha Mazhayium Ilai
Singers: Hamsika Iyer, Haricharan
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

Nice upbeat folk tune with a charming vocal melody which has traces of Hindustani Raag Maand. The orchestration leaves room for instrumental solos to shine, like the Nadhaswaram and Flute bits early on. The performances of Haricharan and Hamsika Iyer are admirably lively and the interludes are well designed with smooth transitions.

Pesamal Pesum
Singers: Swetha Mohan, Vijay Yesudas
Lyrics: Yuga Bharathi

Another tune that can boast of a nice melody. The tune dabbles between western and Indian styles and the attempt comes off as a bit of a hit and miss. The tune could have done well without the gibberish utterances. Vijay Yesudas and Swetha Mohan are rock steady as usual.

Needhi Oru Naalum
Singers: Palakkad Sriram
Lyrics: Yuga Bharathi

Highly charged tune based on carnatic raga Mayamalavagowla- generally used for aggression and high voltage emotions, and the fiery performance of Palakkad Sriram ensures that emotions are high. The army of percussions keeps the adrenaline pumping and the feet tapping.

Aha Mazhaiyum Ilai (reprise)
Singers: Nikhil Mathew, Saptaparan Chakraborthy
Lyrics: Yuga Bharathi

A splendid alternate version of an earlier tune which drapes itself in glorious classical colors. The saxophone solos and the dexterous tabla playing definitely deserve praise. The musicians raise the bar very high and the singers Nikhil Mathew and Saptaparan Chakraborthy too lift their game and match them at every turn.

Verdict: Classical melodies light up this album.
