GV Prakash Kumar had the recent acclaims for his 25th album Paradesi that has swept everyone off their feet. He is back in charts for a commercial entertainer Naan Rajavaga Pogiren that stars Nakul, Chandini and Avani Modi in lead roles. Prithvi Rajkumar makes his debut directorial with this film that is written by his mentor Vetrimaaran.
Vocals: Rahul Nambiar, Megha, Santhosh
The song is completely in hackneyed style with the lyrics we have already heard in Tamil films centring on the backbenchers of college drilled with the studies. It’s a song something about what happens when they get boisterously playful. G.V. Prakash’s musical composition is just mediocre and the bunch of young singers – Rahul Nambiar, Megha and Santhosh pep up the song with their vocalisms. Nakul, who is known for his adeptness in dancing skills, should have some magic to be worked on the screens.
Vocals: GV Prakash, Saindhavi
The real life sweethearts never give away an album to croon together. It has been illustrious from the film Deiva Thirumagal followed by Mayakkam Enna and Thaandavam. While their previous songs were completely melodious giving more space for stringed instruments and pianos, this one turns to be a surprise. Although, it’s melodious duet, the music director has tried blending it with the techno based rhythmic accompaniment. As usual, their chemistry over the track is splendiferous and magnetizing.
Vocals: STR, Maya and Sathish
It’s already a favourite number amongst the youth cohorts giving no time to brew up, but has become an instant hit. Well, young superstar Silambarasan always adds his Midas-touch to the song he renders and this one too goes inclusive of it. Maya and Sathish add up more emblazonment to the track alongside STR. The lyrics are pretty cool and simple that it becomes easy to memorize easily. Yes, you can sing along with the Karaoke version of ‘Kalaaipom’ that is available as the last track of album.
Vocals: Shalmali Kholgade
Shalmali Kholgade imprints the right feel with her style of intonation. The instrumentals in the interludes sound exactly in the same style of ‘Vasantha Mullai’ in Pokkiri. It sounds like a dream song and should have more intensity with the picturing.
Vocals: Sonu Kakkar
One of the best tracks in the album and it’s all due to the tremendous effort of Sonu Kakkar. Her crooning style is perfect as it sounds like a Tamilian on the track. Watch out for Zarine Khan’s sizzling dance performance, which will take away the breath of many young lads.
Naan Rajavaga Pogiren needs little more time to gain the interests of masses. Touted to be a thriller, some of the songs might hit the top list soon after its release. Overall, it’s passable score by GV Prakash Kumar and he could have made it yet more appealing.
Verdict: Decorous work… Needs time to brew up
