Naiyaandi is director Sarkunam’s third film after Kalavaani and Vaagai Sooda Vaa. The project features Dhanush and Nazariya Nazim in the lead. The director once again teams up with composer Ghibran for this project.

Teddy Bear
Singers: Dhanush
Lyrics: Viveka

The initial WTF moment slowly eases out on the listener as the playful vocal melody kicks in, but the ridiculousness of the theme continues to baffle the listener all the way to the end. The idea is fun and the execution is outrageous and Ghibran pulls it off with some confidence. Dhanush’s involvement in the tune will certainly fetch the tune a few more listens which should open up the listener to the attempt.

Ae Le Le Etti Paarthale
Singers: Leo Desouza, Sundar Narayana Rao
Lyrics: Arivumathi

A soft progressive melody which seems to expands itself relentlessly. The track warrants a few listens to figure out the arrangement. But despite this challenge Ghibran keeps the track heavily engaging with his interesting orchestration. The piano toppings especially are delightful.

Innika Innika
Singers: Niwas, Padmalatha, Susana
Lyrics: Karthick Metha

Ghibran begins with tense strings as he slowly but surely sets up the vocal melody with Padmalatha’s voice and then tactfully garnishes it with skillful orchestration which fills your headspace with a rainbow of colorful sounds. It’s a very unassuming song which grows into something magnificent defining Ghibran’s potential. Susana performs splendidly as she plays the perfect foil to Ghibran as he works away in the background.

Marriage Marketil
Singers: Sundar Narayana Rao
Lyrics: Ramaswamy

This track should serve as the perfect example of Ghibran’s approach as a composer as he takes up a simple and effective melody and marries it to an unexpected arrangement style featuring a lot of oddball sounds and effects, like the Doordharshan theme. Sundar Narayana Rao travels through this tune in a lively fashion making it an enjoyable song.

Munnadi Pora Pulla
Singers: Divya Kumar, Swetha Menon
Lyrics: Karthick Metha

Again, a simple folk tune that’s given the Ghibran treatment – full of adventurous arrangements and unusual passages. But the composer manages to draw the listener’s attention to the excellent performances of the singers, Divya Kumar and Swetha Menon, both of whom seem to engage in a mini-battle of one-upmanship between them.

Yendi Paathagathi
Singers: Gold Devaraj
Lyrics: Devendran

A short pathos number that gets the mood right and there’s little else to write about.

Verdict: Experimental, bold & fun, the album will grow on you.
