Saivam is an upcoming experimental film by Director Vijay starring Nasser, Sara Arjun and Suresh in lead roles. The director continues his association with G.V.Prakash Kumar. Prominent singer Unnikrishnan’s daughter Uthara makes her film debut through this album.

Singers: Uthra Unnikrishnan
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

The album begins with a classical ambience with the fresh voice of Uthara Unnikrishnan in a flawless manner. The composition is predominantly based on Carnatic classical raaga Kaanada but goes with ease to Kaapi Raaga as well. Uthara is definitely a new talent to look out for and nuture with respect to classical singing. The orchestration is essentially carnatic based but has great touches of western classical piano to give the best feel. This track will definitely stands as the calling card of the film.

Kokkara Kozhi
Singers: Asvit, Chinna Ponnu, Gana Bala
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

From the carnatic scape, it is time to venture into rustic sounds with captivating vocal performances.  The composition is packed with rhythm and vigor as the vocalists do a great job but the track could have been much better with some changeover points as the track progresses.

Moments of Life
Singers: Instrumental

A breezy instrumental track which seems to carry the soul of the film, arrives next. The string section, bass work and jaltarang create wonders. The emotional violin is gripping and takes the listener to a world of hope.  The far east styled flute joins the feast making for a great instrumental track.

Ore Oru Ooril
Singers: Haricharan
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

An earthy track with ghatam percussions welcomes the listener with its own individuality. Haricharan delivers the best for a track of this sort and the orchestration is breathtakingly mild yet creating a strong impact. The piano touches in the interludes blend well with the jaltarang.

Azhagu (Instrumental)
Singers: Instrumental

The brilliant carnatic track arrives in instrumental form now with flute on the lead. The minimal treble, great piano touches and the lively flute make it as good as the original. While the vocal version carries an innocence throughout its progress, this version has a matured fragrance about it.

Verdict: An album of pure melodies and emotions.
