Vettaiyadu Vilayadu Music Review

“Karka Karka” is a very catchy rap number. The form of music chosen is quite different to sing praise about the honesty and courage of Raghavan (the character of a police) in this song. Initially I didn’t liked the rap bit that comes in the trailer which is a part of this song but know I like it. Thamarai’s lines are impressive. “Partha Muthal” has a serious “Suttum Vizhi” hang over in all section of the song, be it the melody, the rhythm, tune or the vocals (Bombay Jayshree), it is a sequel to the hit number. The only difference is the impressive mouth organ piece in the prelude. It is nice to hear Unnimenon after a long time in this song. “Manjal Veyil” has the stamp of Harris Jeyaraj. It is good peppy track. The rhythm and bass sound similar to “Endrendrum Punnagai” and “Ennai konjam” song. I like the Sax piece in the interlude as much as I like that of in “Suttum Vizhi” song. On the whole, the song sound average now but I could sense the scope for growing on repeated listening.

“Uyirilae” is a beautiful melody with a simple heartbeat like rhythm in the background all through the song. This heartbeat rhythm is like an underscore for the conversation between two hearts for which Mahalaxmi and Srinivas give soothing and expressive vocals in the fore. Interludes are done with great care. Orchestration is beautiful and takes the feel in the song to higher level. “Neruppae” has an infectious rhythm and that makes this song an instantly likeable one. I am sure this song will be a chartbuster. Arabian chants and strings add a new flavour to the song but I am not sure about its originality. On the whole, I think it is almost a hatrick for Gautam – Harris Jeyaraj combination.


Also if you care and carve for good and genuine music do listen to "Thee" and "Mudhal Mazhayae" albums.

what happened to arrahman these days?? his over hyped godfather was a CHEAP album.. about VV, i liked karka and majal song havent heard the rest.. but going by your review i am interested in other tracks. but the 2 songs i listened, it seems to be a rehash of HJ;s earlier work.

By the way, good review

'Manjal Veiyil' reminds me ot YSR's 'Mercury Poove...' from Puthiya Geethai. Kaettu irukeengalaa?

Maverick said...

'Neruppe..' song's stanza starts off exactly like his 'Kanavugal Periya Kanavugal...' from Ullam Kaekkume.

Suresh Kumar said...

maverick: yeah, i too felt the same, infact there are more soundslike feel in all the songs in the album. anyway, there is no point in complaining Harris for this again and again. The songs are catchy and good and let us enjoy

Can't but appreciate HJ for such a variety. Pardon me ARR fans. I think HJ is ruling now..!!

Liked all the songs ( The Neruppu song being an exception).

Suresh Kumar said...

hi,

HJ is good but i won't say as great. He should avoid this sounds-like feel in all his songs and try something totally new. Regd, ARR wait for Jillunu Oru Kadhal, Sivaji etc., btw Rahman is rocking the whole India with his Rang De Basanti songs, he is in no competition with HJ.

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Suresh,

Tell me honestly. Is Rang de Basanthi that great?? I am not sure about it.!

Rang De Basanti was a CHEAP album

Suresh Kumar said...

Narayanan: Yes, ofcourse.

Anon: Yes, it is rather cheap if you consider the quality of music. It is cheap and BEST.
