Movie: Naanum Rowdy Dhaan
Cast: Vijay Sethupathi,Nayanthara,Parthiban
Director: Vignesh Shivan
Music director: Anirudh Ravichander
A super cool solo number by Anirudh Ravichander opens this urban soundtrack. The young composer fuses a simple tune with excellent guitar orchestration and rock elements. The entire song has an overall sunny feel to it. Additionally the ecstatic violin solos by Anantha Krishnan stand out and provide a touch of naturalness to the optimistic progression. Anirudh rocks with an amazing start!
2.Neeyum Naanum-Anirudh Ravichander,Neeti Mohan
Anirudh churns out a scintillating melody that is sure to blow your mind away on the first listen. The Sarangi instrument plays a major part in this number, while the soft piano notes and the foot-tapping rhythm adds beauty to it. Neeti Mohan is the show-stealer with her honey-dipping voice sounding really sweet at many places while Anirudh's part too strikes a chord. Lovey-dovey all the way!
3.Naanum Rowdy Dhaan-Benny Dayal
The title track is lively, jubilant and enjoyable right from the word go. Vignesh Shivan's lyrics are quirky and modern, while Benny Dayal's peppy rendition elevates the mood of the track. Anirudh has the skill to weave a simple tune and add complexity to it by giving it a Jazzy feel. The vibrant chorus is an added advantage.
4.Yennai Maatrum Kadhale-Sid Sriram,Anirudh Ravichander
Personally I feel that this number reminds of the days when Yuvan Shankar Raja used to rule the music industry with trance-like melodies. Once again Anirudh experiments with his orchestration while Sid Sriram's soprano singing takes it to the next level. The fusion of the title track towards the end is an innovative thought by the composer. A fantastic composition!
5.Kannaane Kanne-Sean Roldan
This final song proves that Anirudh can also compose amazingly like Santhosh Narayanan. The latter's style of composition is evident throughout the number. Furthermore, Anirudh brings in a middle East flavor to the tune and fuses it with innovative folksy notes. Sean Roldan's strained vocals are a major plus to the number. Unconventional one this is!
After many albums which were abundant with repetitive tunes, Anirudh comes up with a groundbreaking album that is sure to top the charts and stay in the playlists for its refreshing feel and creativity!
