25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007

5. Naaanthaanaa

Movie: Ninaithaalae
Composer: Vijay Antony
Lyrics: Vairamuthu
Singer: Sadhana Sargam, Rahul Nambiyaar

This song is no equivalent to the classic ‘Nuvvenaa’ song from the original Telugu version of the movie. It is full of familiar rhythms, flute pieces and strings and is a big bouquet of clichés we associate with a romantic duet. You can easily guess where the melody is leading and when a flute will start to flourish. Yet the flow in the simple melody and the feel that the flow gets us into makes even the clichéd orchestration work. Vijay Antony continues to deliver such simple delightful melodies.

What was the telugu version of the movie called? I want to listen to the song to see what you mean.

Kanna - The telugu movie is 'Anand' music by K.M.Radhakrishnan. 'Nuvvenna' is a classic.
