Production: Kalanidhi Maaran, B Bharathi Reddy
Star-casts: Dhanush, Tamanna, Raj Kiran, Prakash Raj, Ganja Karuppu and others
Music: Devi Sri Prasad
Lyrics: Viveka, Hari
This is the next in the series of Singam, Siruthai, Singam Puli to quote the earlier monster animal-oriented titles for the Tamil movies. The film is the offshoot from the flamboyant director Hari whose fame found the peak last year with Surya starred Singam. With Hari a guaranteed result of the complete movie is there and the producers are at comfort for their investment. This time Hari has paired the national award winner Dhanush with Tamanna.
As is the case with his earlier or any project, Hari has got the cast in Prakash Raj, Raj Kiran and above all this film has the appearance of Goundamani after a long spell of break in Tamil movies. After Singam’s scintillating songs, Hari has been very much impressed with Devi Sri Prasad and in this Vengai too DSP has scored some good numbers. With the movie rights to be hold by the Sun Pictures , the audio rights is to be taken by Sony Music.
1. Dhinam Dhinam:
Vocals: Benny Dayal, Baba Segal
The title song in Hari’s films usually happens to be mass numbers and this one isn’t exception. Much alike the previous albums with Hari, Viveka has penned same-patterned lyrics. Baba Segal adds more intensity to the appeal and DSP sets up the celebration with his fast-paced composition.
A swinging melodic solo by Karthik and he is far-famed for such musical genres. Devi Sri Prasad gives a mild effect to the instrumentals. The lyrics are quite simple and it may take some more time for the song to acquire everyone’s interests.
3. Yenna Solla Pore
Vocals: DSP, ML Karthikeyan
Devi Sri Prasad gets down to set the mood right with his appealing vocalism. The beat from rhythm box is very much familiar, but DSP has tried adding a different flavor. The interludes and preludes are same as in his previous melodic tracks. Hari has picked some catchy words and has done it effortlessly.
4. Orey Oru
Vocals: Tippu, Harini
Tippu and DSP together have streaked with big success over many songs. This time, the ace singer is on the tracks with his wife-playback singer Harini. Much alike the previous numbers, Devi Sri Prasad avoids jarring sound over the vocals. The trio delivers a commendable piece of work. The instrumental works are balmy and suits well for the nature of song.
5. Pudikale Pidikidhu
Vocals: Mukesh, Suchitra
Typical Kuthu number with the trademark of DSP…. It sounds like the song will appear during the final reel of the film as it happens with Hari’s films. Mukesh has crooned the song giving it the right feel and so is Suchitra. On the whole, ‘Vengai’ has more mass numbers and it’s refreshing in few portions. With Sun Pictures giving a right punch of promotions, the songs would surely top the charts shortly.
