Abhiyum Naanum Soundtrack

Radha Mohan, Vairamuthu and Vidhyasagar have gone the ‘Mozhi’ way in composing the soundtrack of ‘Abhiyum Naanum’. With the incidents in the script as inspiration, Vairamuthu has written poetry and Vidhyasagar have composed notes to elevate the beauty of words. In this approach the music is totally dependent on the musicality of words in the poetry. In Mozhi everything fell in place perfectly. Somehow, the same magic doesn’t happen in ‘Abhiyum Naanum’. The choice of Kailash Kher and the Punjabi intrusions are also puzzling.

But after one or two repeated listening, and after understanding that this is a soundtrack that has songs that takes the story forward, I am convinced and I love this soundtrack. The melodies are very pleasant. A movie soundtrack has to be like this. These songs cannot find place in any other movie. Prakash Raj’s philosophical introductory speech (written by Viji I guess) before each song is interesting. This is a kind of soundtrack which one would want to listen to immediately after watching the movie for reliving the experience.

And a special mention to Prakash Raj and to Duet Music for making the CD package so interesting to convince a buyer feel that it is worth every single penny and sure it is.

I thought you would not write review for this album. But surprisingly you have come up with a review but shockingly a positive review..

Well, as you said, the songs may suit the movie theme well, but as a music wise, this is not pleasant to my ears. I was expecting another Mozhi from this trio.

I liked all the bit songs except that punjabi track. Chinnamma kalyanam has wonderful lyrics. Khailash - the big minus!

Among the main tracks, I love Vaa devathaiye...

I just couldn't stand the other songs...

Your favorite track in this album??

I guess, this is the first Vidyasagar's work to find a place in your blog:)

Krishna - No. I posted the review of Mozhi as an audio clip. but i posted it in my other wordpress blog. And ofcourse, there were lot of pretty good albums that i missed to review... like 'Pirivom Santhipom' and 'Raaman Thediya Seethai'.
