I can honestly say, this is one of your best reviews so far :)

Suresh Kumar said...

Kanna - I don't know what to say. Anyways, Thanks.

Vinith said...

What hapnd suresh? Dint like the songs?
World's shortest review :-)

Suresh Kumar said...

Good or bad, I am not feeling the urge to listen to it once again.

Anonymous said...

suresh, you r not the same after ur review on UO!

kanna said...

I meant you captured exactly what I thought when I heard the album. I can't remember any of the songs now, and I don't feel any impetus to scroll over to that album again.

Suresh Kumar said...

Anon - Maybe I am not. I don't know.

Suresh Kumar said...

Kanna - I got it.

Krishna said...

At least, Saroja's review was up to the mark:)

EnvyRam said...

Suresh,

LOL ... Couldnt have expressed it better ... even a 3000 word review might not have conveyed that. I did the same actually, listened to it once, didnt feel like listening again. In fact, forgot all about it.

Amazing REVIEW!!

Smiles,
Vinayak

Vignesh said...

Am sure u'll take back ur words.

Having reviewed so many dud albums previously in ur blog, Saroja doesn't deserve such an insulting note IMHO.

Well, opinion differs...

Suresh Kumar said...

Krishna, Vinayak - Thanks.

Dhanasekhar - Yes it is. UO rocks. Haven't heard 'Dhanam' songs yet...

Vignesh - I agree with you that I have reviewed many dud albums. I never thought my short review would be considered as an insult to the soundtrack, it is just that I didn't like it and I was lazy to explain why.

Vinith said...

Suresh,

Dhanam songs are ok. Check out my review.

You may not review it :-)

Suresh Kumar said...

Vinith - Let me check out Dhanam, it is getting mixed opinions

Saraks said...

All for the first Tamil film with an English soundtrack. lol dude.

better than shittykatai

jaazay said...

sathyam songs are a bigger kodumai.

kanna said...

I wouldn't agree with jazaay; personally I think I prefer satyam to saroja. Maybe it's because I had some expectations for saroja, and didnt even know there's a movie called sathyam. But I find myself regularly listening to two songs from sathyam (while hating two others), but not wanting to listen to a single song from saroja. Dunno, maybe I'll start liking them when the movie comes out and SunTV starts playing the video songs.

Don't you guys like 'Dosth Bada Dosth'? It's a cool hip track, rite?

jaazay said...

To be exact, the review of suresh for saroja, fits what I was thinking when I heard Sathyam.

Unlike kannan, I was having some expectations from HJ on Sathyam. The audio has been sold for 65 lacs it seems.

And to be frank, Sathyam, to me, is the worst album of his.

As for Saroja, I agree with kanna that I may begin to like them once they have been picturised (hopefully).

Suresh Kumar said...

Kanna, Jazzay - Satyam and Saroja songs will definitely be a hit after the release of the movie, because of the repeated playing in Music channels and FMs... And I too may hum some of these songs later when I listen it in FM or watch it in music channels... but for now, there is so much great music yet to be heard in this world...

kanna said...

jaazay :

When I first read your comment, I thought "That can't be right, there are definitely albums that are worse!".
But as I tried to think of one, I realized I couldnt pick one that clearly loses to this album. I'd never given thought to it, but now that I do I think Sathyam probably is one of his worst. I've gotten tired of the songs he does with Bombay Jayashree, both of his recent albums have the same style of song for her. I personally think, and I'm sure many might disagree, that bheema and totti jaya rank near sathyam as his worst.

All the same, I'm still more impressed with Sathyam than Saroja. I think Yuvan's worst is much worse than Harris', and Yuvan's best is much better than Harris'.

p.s. Isn't it interesting, Suresh, that what is probably your shortest post ever has generated the most comments in the recent past? ( I think pretty close to your post on Nyman-Yuvan connection on the other blog. Oru velai Yuvan-ai pathi pesinaale ithanai comment varumo? Hmmm..)
:D

jaazay said...

Some of Harris' worst that rank near Sathyam:

Thotti Jaya
Kumaran (telugu dub, together with the awful lyrics in the Chaiyya Chaiyya clone song)
Arul


Bheema is passable and I would not rank it near Sathyam, eventhough none of the songs are my favourites, they are hummable.

Avi said...

One musical genius... Six songs... One rocking album... And here is One rocking review :)

Ramki said...

Suresh ,
After two listenings of bits and pieces , i have the same opinions about Saroja . Ditto with Sakkara katti , but it has listenable , cool ones .

Suresh Kumar said...

Kanaa - That is really funny. It is generating lot of comment when I write something against Yuvan. And this best, worst thing is little bit confusing, I feel that the songs in those albums you mentioned don't generate any interest in the listener's to listen to the song again and again....

Avi - Quite contradicting statement, Music of Saroja and my review on it, cannot be 'rocking' togather....

Ramki - I do like Sakkarakatti.

Avi said...

Suresh,
for me, only ur review rocks.

Suresh Kumar said...

Avi - I got it.

Sanjeevi said...

Sanjeevi said...

Yuvan always tries to give new kind of songs from his previous album (combo). Definitely he is growing and wait for SMS

Suresh Kumar said...

Sanjeevi - What is SMS?

Sanjeevi said...

Sivanin Manathil Sakthi - vikatan group production (first time in silver screen?)

Suresh Kumar said...

Sanjeevi - Oh..Who is the director?

Vinith said...

Debutant Rajesh is the director. A soft love story, so am expecting good melodies in this. Lets wait.

V said...

Sanjeevi,

"Sivanin Manathil Sakthi - vikatan group production (first time in silver screen?)"

Isn't it a continuation of the old Gemini films ??? (:-)

Ramesh said...

hmm.. interesting. I liked saroja more than sakkarakatti.
