Music:Yuvan Shankar Raja
This week purely belongs to Yuvan Shankar Raja. Just days after the songs he composed for Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Panjaa’, Vishnuvardhan’s maiden film in Telugu, was released amidst much fan fare in Hyderabad (the event was aired live by IndiaGlitz) the music composer had an audio launch in Kollywood, and that is ‘Kazhugu’, which has Vishnuvardhan’s brother Krishna in the lead.
Sony Music has released the music of ‘Kazhugu’, which is a cocktail of emotions, we must say. Some unique voices (Pushpavanam Kuppusamy, Karthik Raja, Krishnaraj etc) have crooned the lines penned by the likes of Na Muthukumar, Snehan and Eknath. Let’s take a check on the songs in here…
01. Aambalaikum Pombalaikum…
Singers: Krishnaraj, Velmurugan, Sathyan
Many things are there between a man and a woman. And this song attempts to track a few. Yuvan’s music gives life to the ‘dynamic’ lyrics of Snehan, with the voices of Krishnaraj, Velmurugan and Sathyan adding more value. A racy folk song, ‘Aambalaikum Pombalaikum’ makes us tap our foot from the beginning till the end.
02. Aathadi Manasudhan…
What’s inside a woman’s heart? Well, a billon dollar question which will never see an answer. Listen to this song penned by Muthukumar and crooned by Priya, which takes us to a world which is as different as the woman’s heart. Priya has expressed well the feelings of a ‘girl in love’ in this Ilayaraja kind of song. Yuvan reminds one of his dad.
03. Paathagathi Kannupattu…
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja
The numbers that are sung by Yuvan Shankar Raja always come with a Midas touch. So has ‘Paathagathi Kannupattu…’, penned by Snehan. The song which starts on a very mild note slowly makes its impact felt in a big way. Yuvan’s voice aptly fits well into the shoes of a youth, who has a great admiration for his girl.
04. Vaadi Vaadi…
Singers: Pushpavanam Kuppuswamy, Suvi Suresh, Anitha
Whatte kuthu! Apparently an item number towards the climax, ‘Vaadi Vaadi…’ sung by Pushapavanam Kuppusamy, the big daddy of folk songs, in the company of Suvi Suresh and Anita is here to stay. Yuvan’s electrifying tune and energizing beats do enough magic, with the rest being taken care of by the singers.
05. Aathadi Manasudhan…
Singers: Karthik Raja
Another ‘Aathadi Manasudhan…’ is here, this time by Karthik Raja. This one is the male version of the feelings expressed by the female voice a couple of songs above. The elder brother of Yuvan marks his presence as a good singer too.
The music of ‘Kazhugu’ flies high, perhaps putting the listener on cloud nine.
