Movie: Idhu Namma Aalu
Cast: Silambarasan,Nayanthara,Andrea Jeremiah
Music director: T.R.Kuralarasan
T.R.Kuralarasan presents us a compelling folkish melody. Crooned by his brother Silambarasan, this number has a breezy pallavi and then veers off into fast paced kuthu number in the charanam. The eclectic usage of guitar strums, nadaswaram and Sitar is engaging to listen to. Beautiful start.
2.Kanne Un Kadhal-Yuvan Shankar Raja
This one is a haunting solo in the raw vocals of Yuvan Shankar Raja. Accompanied all along with grand piano notes, this song has a ebullient chord progression. The violin section in the interlude is exquisite while the mellowed beats engulf the listeners in a trance-like atmosphere. Another winner!
3.King Kong-T.R.Kuralarasan,Shruthi Hassan,Blaaze
Kuralarasan himself gets to croon this number along with Shruthi Hassan whose hoarsely lower notes complement his funky voice amicably. This romantic duet also has a trance-like atmosphere and a brilliantly constructed chord progression. And Blaaze just blazes in the rap portion. A peppy track!
What is a Simbu film without a pakka mass number, especially in his father's voice? This song joins the bandwagon of Yammaadi Aathaadi and Kalasala. Filled with all commercial elements, this song is sure to go down well with the front-benchers. Though stereotyped, it is a definite chartbuster.
5.Oru Thalai Ragam-Sriram Parthsarathy,Blaaze
The most scintillating number of the album arrives at the last. This one is peppered with awesome orchestration, grand piano notes and exuberant strings which make this pathos heartrending. Sriram Parthasarathy seems to be a misfit for this number but Silambarasan does justice to the song in his version. Just plug on your earphones and get lost in this Yuvan-like mesmerizing melody!
T.R.Kularasan's debut album aces off with an equal mix of foot-tapping numbers and melodies. He is a promising find!
