Nanbenda Music Review

Movie: Nanbenda

Cast: Udhayanidhi Stalin,Nayanthara

Director: Jagadish

Music director: Harris Jayaraj

 


1.Enai Marubadi Marubadi-Vijay Prakash,Megha

Beginning with lilting piano tones, this opening track of the album is a melodious one. Vijay Prakash's flawless singing rules the entire song. Though the beats give us a deja vu feeling, the number is pleasant on the ears. The interludes are peppy and Megha's humming serves as an icing on the cake. Good start!

2.Oorellam Unnai Kandu-Unnikrishnan,Bombay Jayashree

A surprising Carnatic melody that is sure to instantly hook you on at the first listen. Beautifully rendered in the voices of classical singers Unnikrishnan and Bombay Jayashree. The fusion of western beats and classical chorus make this number even more interesting. The classical interludes also blend perfectly with this song. The word 'Nayandhara' in the second line sounds similar to 'Nayanthara' which is quiet innovative. Pick of the album!

3.Nee Sunno New Moonu-Richard,Andrea Jeremiah,Mili Nair

After some melodious numbers, here comes Harris Jayaraj's signature western track. Though it seems cliched, Andrea's voice provides refreshment. Richard sounds energetic and the interludes equally complement his voice. Thanglish lyrics and fast paced guitar strums make this number even more urban.

4.Neeraambal Poove-Arjun Menon,MC Vickey

This short western melody is sweet to listen. Arjun Menon gets yet another hit number after Latcham Calorie. MC Vickey's rap portion is commendable and the rhythm is easy to relate to. Lyrics by Thamarai are poetic.

5.Dappankuthu Mettula-Gaana Bala,Ujjayinee Roy

A fusion number which stays true to its starting line. It has both dappankuthu and western beats. But it sounds too similar to Aathangara Orathil from Yaan. Gaana Bala's vocals are effectively used while its refreshing to listen to Ujjayinee's voice after a long time. Stereotyped track!

6.Thaene Thaene Sendhanae-Haricharan,Pravin Saivi

Finally, the album comes to an ending with yet another soulful melodious number. Only Harris Jayaraj can mask a pathos number with his innovative tune construction. We wouldn't know that it is a sad song until we listen deeply to the lyrics (remember Ava Enna,Yaaro Yaaro and Thodu Vaanam). Exhilirating!

Verdict:

Harris Jayaraj delivers yet another pleasant album for Udhayanidhi after Oru Kal Oru Kannadi and Idhu Kathirvelan Kaadhal. Though the numbers have repeated tunes, they will become chartbusters just for their simplicity.

Rating: ***

Picks:

Oorellam Unnai Kandu,Thaene Thaene Sendhaene
