The new bunch of team has set on the huge celebration in K-town now. The banner Thirukumaran Entertainment is on a fabulous spell of churning out back-to-back hit movies that includes ‘Attakathi‘, ‘Pizza‘ and more releases to arrive in 2013.
Following the huge success of ‘Pizza‘, Vijay Sethupathi and music director Santhosh Narayanan team up in ‘Soodhu Kavvum‘ for the same producer. ‘Naalaya Iyakkunar‘ title winner Nalan Kumarasamy makes his maiden debut with this film.
Come Na Come – Ganesh Kumar B, Chinna
Planning up for a fresh start, set this track as your ALARM TONE. It’s a combination of simple-yet-captivating lyrics with a brilliant fusion of music. Santhosh Narayanan has done a great job with the sound mixing. Not to miss the spoof-mimic of Vijayakanth, Thenkachi Ko Swaminathan, et al. Usually, A rap song in Tamil albums would have a pick of singers like Yogi B or Dr. Burn, but Santhosh has managed to make it happen with singers Ganesh Kumar and Chinna.
Mama Douser – Andrea Jeremiah
It looks like Andrea Jeremiah will easily get away with the title of ‘Pop Queen’. Earlier, it was Usha Utap, who made it bigger on high pitch and great bass voice. Andrea picks the right notes and makes it sound appealing and so is the Rock ‘n’ Roll panache of composition. Sounds like the song is placed during an important sequence of the film as the backdrop of a comical moment interwoven with a thrilling situation.
Ellam Kandandhu Pogumada – Koavai Jaleel
The newfangled composition of songs in Pizza seems to have given more confidence to Santhosh Narayanan for new experiments. Time to walk back into the late 60s to experience the magical imprints of TMS-MSV combo. There are certain highlighting traits in the film that includes the vocalism of singer in ancient recording style while the sound mixing is done with a trendy elan.
Sudden Delight – Rob Mass
Listen to the track in your surround system and you’ll realize the efficient work of Santhosh. The strings, Jazz guitars and synthetic bass have been very well blended and it will surely add more intensity to the visuals.
Sa Ga – Divya Ramani
Sipping a favourite beverage sprawling out under Moonlight breeze with 3/4 Waltz: nothing can offer the paradisiacal feel than this. But the ‘Waltz’ hasn’t been a favourite pick of contemporary music directors in Tamil music industry. The musical spell is perfect, but as Divya Ramani reaches high pitch, there is a sense of asynchronous elements in the song, which doesn’t diminish the impact to greater levvell. Overall, it’s a good attempt and the placement in the film might yield better results.
Kaasu Panam – Gaana Bala, Andony Dasan
This is a colloquial style of track crooned by Gaana specialists – Gaana Bala and Andony Dasan. Unlike other tracks in this album, this might take some more time to brew up and it probably sounds like a promo song.
On the whole, the album introduces some new genre of music and Santhosh Narayanan deserves a special pat for this. Much alike his previous album Pizza, the visuals would add more beautifications to his music.
Verdict: Buy it for ‘Come Na Come’ & ‘Sudden Delight’
