Raja Rani music review

Movie: Raja Rani

Cast: Arya,Nayanthara,Jai,Nazriya

Director: Atlee Kumar

Music director: G.V.Prakash


Atlee Kumar, a former assistant director to Shankar, debuts with this movie 'Raja Rani'. It is a romantic comedy with Arya & Nayanthara as the leads. G.V.Prakash has composed music for this movie.

1.Hey Baby-G.V.Prakash,Gaana Bala,Aishwarya

The track begins with a beautiful saxophone sound and then forays into an acapella. G.V.Prakash takes over with his husky voice and croons with great style. The lyrics are quirky in nature and they speak about life after marriage from the guy's perspective. The track changes into a kuthu number and there enters Gaana Bala with his usual 'gaana' style. Its like listening to two different songs in a single track. An unheard fusion that is sure to rock.

2.Angnyaade-Shakthisree Gopalan

It is an out and out magical track that sticks on to you after you listen to it. Its a soft folksy melody that has Shakthisree collaborating with G.V for the first time. Her voice stands out in the entire track as she sings with the right attitude. The repetitive 'Angnyaade' line is fun to listen to. The mild guitar strums and the background rythm brings out a track that is endearing to hear. This song deserves a special applause.

3.Chillena-Clinton Serejo,Alphonse,Alka

This is a track that completely relies on rock beats and moves in a racy manner. Clinton who is known for his western songs renders this number with elan. The interludes are well constructed with Alka's voice in the first one and Alphonse's Malayalam part in the second one. The nadaswaram is significantly used which is a plus point in the song. Though this track is similar to G.V's Mazhai Pozhiyum from Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal, it makes for a good listen when you go out on a long ride.

4.Unnale-Vandana Srinivasan

Beginning with strings and soft beats, this short piece speaks volumes of melody. Vandana 's soulful singing takes the song to greater levels. Hope G.V could have composed it has a full song. He makes us wanting for more as he did in the case of Adhigaalai Pookal from Thaandavam.

5.Oday Oday-Vijay Prakash,Sasha,Shalmali Kholgade

The track is a combination of hip-hop and rock n' roll in a retro style. Its a peppy number that has some weird singing by Vijay Prakash and Sasha. The mild classical touches by Shalmali in the first interlude adds spice to the song. The repetitive 'Oday Oday' makes the track even more enjoyable. Overall, a foot tapping track.

6.Imaye Imaye-G.V.Prakash,Shakthisree Gopalan

How could a G.V.Prakash album be without a lilting duet melody? Starting with a mesmerising flute prelude and angelic strings, G.V and Shakthisree team up for a scintillating love filled melody that will blow you away. The construction of the entire tune is loveable and melts honey in your ears.

7.A Love For Life-G.V.Prakash,Navin Iyer,Chennai Symphony

This is the instrumental version of 'Imaye' which is once again a beautiful composition. G.V makes use of the piano and keyboard alternatively and creates a fantastic masterpiece. Navin Iyer's flute piece is yet another explicit addition to the already enthralling tune. Finally, the theme ends with the grand performance by Chennai Symphony. 

Verdict:

G.V.Prakash has mixed up all the genres of music into a single soundtrack and has created an album that will be one of the best in 2013!!!!
