25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007

21. Maayaavi Neeyae

Movie: Sivi
Composer: Dharan
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar
Singers: Shruthi, Haricharan

Want to know the meaning of a catchy song? Listen to this one. With a different structure, changing tempos, pleasing melody and adequate orchestration, Dharan finds a right balance between class and mass in this song. Usually, a song would have just one single motif other than the main melody or sometimes no motifs at all, but this song has got two beautiful motifs other than main melody and all is well packaged into the song. Dharan’s maturity is evident in the way he has used the bass guitar, the piano and the strings in right amount and at right places in the song.

Nice song, though I personally would pick Oh Nenje. Maayavi Neeya is nice, but the charanam never really stuck for me. And besides that, the voice seems a bit drowned out, esp in the pallavi. I'm not sure if it was intentional or because of low budget equipment. The two motifs are really beautiful, and I really admire Dharan's use of percussion especially in this song.

By the way, any idea what Dharan's next project might be? I haven't read anything anywhere...
