With ‘Chennai 600028’ and ‘Saroja’ spelling out sensational music, ‘Goa’ has been keeping up our expectation values to a greater magnitude and now they’re out with the same best results from the duo. Songs delivered by lots and lots of singers from yesteryear and present generations itself engrosses us vividly. Right from Ilaiyaraja, SPB, and Chitra to the contemporaneous actresses Andrea and Mamta Mohandas, there happens to be an attention-grabbing attribute. The album goes inclusive of two genres: South based folk music and peppy western works.
A self-aggrandizing song about the ‘Raja’ family!!! The song is crooned by siblings that centers about their family’s adherence towards musical knowledge. Yuvan has tuned the melody completely with slow-paced village folk song. It sounds almost like Ilayaraja’s 80s pattern and will surely evoke the interests of universal listeners.
2.Ooru Nalla Ooru…
And again, there’s yet another ‘Ilayaraja’ factor. The maestro himself renders this song and beats are orchestrated perfectly with melody parts. The lyrics are pathos-centric and the song is expected to be placed at pre penultimate portion.
Singers: S P Charan & Yugendran Vasudeva Nair
Here’s a typical village festival number with the resemblance of yesteryear style (inherited from his father’s touch). Well, SP Charan and Yugendran prettify the song with more sprightliness. If rich visuals of hamlets are canned, then this number is sure to strike everyone’s attention.
Singers: Krish, Ranjith, Tanvi, Suchitra, Chynk Showtyme & Pav Bundy
If at all, you had presumed this album completely to be overwhelming with countryside folk song, here comes a sudden surprise with a unique vogue of change. ‘Goa’ sways you into zippy, bouncy spirits with its sparkling trait. Just take a look over the singers’ list and you’ll judge the song sans heeding to it.
Singers: Ajeesh & Andrea
Prevalently fashioned tune of Yuvan Shankar Raja: more vitality exists on both vocalism and instrumentals. Followed by his previous composition Telugu song ‘Oye’ (sang by actor Siddarth himself), Yuvan has used live drums. Interludes with stringed instruments enhance the song, which seems to be a live performance over the visuals. Andrea has to modulate her voice as she keeps rendering all numbers with same phonation while Ajeesh scores brownie points.
6.Vaaliba Vaa Vaa….
Singers: Ilayaraja, S. P. Balasubramaniam & Chitra
A jollifying melody delivered by Ilayaraja, S.P Balasubramaniam and Chitra that sounds to be one-one style. Kudos to Yuvan Shankar Raja: he makes sure that the lyrics are utterly clear with accordance to instrumental realms.
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja
The song carries exact trademark of Yuvan Shankar Raja with a mind-boggling orchestration of instruments. Just heed to the running-stringed instruments on the accompaniment. Though the song doesn’t prolong for more than 90secs, you’ll find lots of detailed works projected by the musician.
Singers: Benny Dayal & Mamtha Mohandas
Much alike dissimilar poles, ‘Idaivazhi Oru’ is an eroticizing number that may capture the interests of youth cohorts. Yuvan could’ve avoided Benny Dayal. The voice sounds to be more unapt as he seems to have overemotionally hyperactive. Mamtha surpasses with her sensuous appeal over her part.
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja
For the party animals, who yearned to shake their legs for a peppy Tamil song, Yuvan has it for you all. Lots of techno beats and fill-ins would just create mania across dance floors….
As on whole, ‘Goa’ has more probabilities of making it big for the season as the songs are quite enjoyable. Yuvan’s biggest strength is about opting for unusual combinations of singers and musical stroke.
Verdict: Could be a hat-trick for Yuvan-Venkat
