Movie: Urumeen

Cast: Bobby Simha,Kalaiyarasan,Reshmi Menon,Sandra Amy

Director: Sakthivel Perumalsamy

Music director: Achu Rajamani



1.Baby Baby-Antony Daasan

This is a coming-of-the-age quirky track with gibberish and youth-friendly lyrics. It has all ingredients to turn into a peppy anthem for the youngsters. Anthony Daasan excels with his rustic vocals while the accompaniment of guitar strums all over makes the number a lively one. That said, a more innovative tune arrangement could have made the number even more engaging.

2.Hey Umayaal-Vijay Yesudhas

Here comes a breezy love number that is sure to turn into the next romantic hit of this season. With an amazing melodious tune, a blend of mandolin and guitar strums and simple rhythm, this track will make your heart beats race with passion and love. Vijay Yesudhas croons with elan, making his voice the cherry on top of the cake!

3.Siru Nadai-Karthik

If you had loved Achu's En Uyire from Maalai Pozhuthin Mayakathiley, you'd surely love this number too. It is divine to listen to this classically inclined love solo with an addictive violin interlude along with Karthik's honey-dipping voice. The mild beats place more emphasis on the vocals and other orchestration which is sure to captivate the listeners!

4.Yaadhum Oorae-Guna,Rohan Prakash,Kamalaja

Beginning with a popular phrase in Tamil language, this number is the experimental one of the album. Achu indulges some upbeat percussion sections and electrifying crescendos. The sultry vocals of Guna and Rohan Prakash are top class while Kamalaja's mellowed humming provides an effervescent atmosphere.

5.Siru Nadai (Reprise Version)-Roshini Suresh

Now is the time for the female counterpart to unleash her passion with this reprise version of the melodious Siru Nadai. Veena interludes bring out Achu's musical versatility in composing a same number into two beautiful versions. Roshini Suresh's vocals are so sweet that one can listen to her on repeat mode. Overloaded with love!

6.Hey Umayaal (Unplugged Version)-Achu,Kavya Ajith

Finger taps and Kavya Ajith's suppressed humming open this final track. Though it is a rehash of a previous number, it doesn't sound like one with Achu's brilliance in composing it in a different way. He yields the megaphone with ease while the mild piano notes flow with ease. Beautiful!

Verdict:

From the composer of the exuberant Maalai Pozhuthin Mayakathiley, comes another gem which is a musical shower.

Rating: ***3/4
