Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
‘Theeradha Vilayattu Pillai’, magnum opus ‘Paiyya’ and now ‘Kadhal Solla Vandhen’ – Yuvan Shankar fetches one more feathers to his cap with his magniloquently blissful musical touch. In depth, for the past three months, there hasn’t been any chartbusters except A.R. Rahman’s ‘Raavanan’. Thanks to Yuvan Shankar, the young virtuoso strikes back with peppy romantic numbers. Remember this! KSV is gonna be a special treat for young guys as most of them are male solos.
So simple in lyrical arenas, the beats are simple and Yuvan has expeditiously well-orchestrated with sound mixing as the intonations are more processed with echoes and sustains.
But this is not the best of Yuvan Shankar as he tries replicating the same acts in all the songs on both vocalizing compositions and instruments.
Vocal: Yuvan Shankar Raja
You’ll find the cherry-pick right on the first number. To a surprising extent, Yuvan’s vocalism has a difference and it’s gonna take few time to grasp his identity. As mentioned, the sound engineering of rhythmic touch and vocalizing prospects are at its best. The lyrics by Saarathy is very much pleasing and this will be a favorite number as on the first time of hearing.
Oru Vanavilin Pakkathile
Vocal: Udit Narayanan
A dissimilar instrumentation from Yuvan’s previous compositions and that stands out as a highlighting attribute. Udit Narayanan’s yesteryear chartbusters with Yuvan gets one more additional number. The rhythmic pattern remains the same as processed differently as in previous number. Udit Narayanan’s funny pronunciation of certain words is attention-grabbing.
Vocal: Vijay Yesudas
Variations completely miss as the album approaches the next half. Similar type of treatment over the numbers and simplistic notes may scatter the attention of music buffs. Of course, if you’re gonna listen to the sake of time-pass; this is fine to kill your minutes. Vijay Yesudas could have been utilized yet finely as his rendition lacks perfervidness, ‘Oh dear, let me die on your laps’ – Alas! It’s obscure with its clichés. Na. Muthukumar badly disappoints with the lyrics as they lack solidity.
Vocals: Chidambaram Sivakumar Poosari
Nothing so much impressive with as the songs sounds so hard, but the picturing seems to be slightly different from what you perceive it to be.
Karthi isn’t actually necessary for this song and if Yuvan had meant to utilize him, the track should have been fantastically done. This isn’t the best of Karthik and the beats are so prototyped.
As a whole album, Yuvan Shankar Raja is up to certain level of expectation, but doesn’t exceed the anticipation levels.
