The album’s most melodramatically rich soundtrack ‘Kangal Neeyae’ is G.V.Prakash Kumar’s surprise offering of the lot. Sitara’s classically refined voice proves to be a perfect choice for the soundtrack as it mellows well in high notes with classically sounding musical arrangements. This somber number works well with the highly expressive lyrics of Thamarai.
Singers: Aalap Raju, Megha and G.V.Prakash Kumar
Urbane sounding, high on zealous with spunky electronic beats make the next track ‘Mazhai Pozhiyum’ a laudable addition to the album. Aalap Raju, Megha and G.V.Prakash Kumar offer an exhilarating listening affair that breathes the aura of hippy modern feel. G.V Prakash compiles this racy track with delectable contemporary style that delivers an upbeat pep factor.
Singers: Raman Mahadevan, Caroline and Megha
G.V.Prakash Kumar brings out his impressive flair of instrumentals in ‘Oh Sunandha’ like the delectable electric guitar riffs in the prelude that connects well with the enticing feel of the track. Raman Mahadevan’s lighthearted singing is very impressive and so does the chorus of Caroline & Megha. The change in tempos and moods are handled well by the beautiful orchestration.
Singers: G.V.Prakash Kumar, Blaaze and Andrea
The next track ‘Oru Murai’ has an International musical feel to it where both English and Tamil lyrics work well in tandem to epitomize out a cherishable entertainer. Though this sound track kindles the memories of Akon’s ft.T-Pain hola hola, it is a well crafted number in its own league. It sounds as a heavily auto-tuned R&B track, but packs enough spice in the form of rap by Benny Dayal and a cool boisterous show by G.V.Prakashkumar that will turn out to be a chartbusting number.
Singers: Baba Segal, Shruti Hassan
The need of loud feasting dancing track in the album is fulfilled in the song ‘Sokku Podi’. Baba Segal’s throaty vocals join hands with Shruthi Hassan’s booming voice in creating an enthusiastically high track that will deliver sufficient amusement on the dancing floor. G.V. gives a beat that turns on the celebratory mood and maintains the high spirit of the song.
Yaar Aval Yaro…
Singers: Mohammed Irfan
The final offering ‘Yaar Aval Yaro’ adds more glam quotient to the show. Mohammed Irfan’s fresh soothing vocals give it an edgy romantic feel and amplify with varying emotional moods of the track. It is a highly trendy and infectious track with the right mix of electronic arrangements and cute addition of Hindustani elements.
GV Prakash Kumar delivers an outstanding album that will be drawing much appreciation and acceptance from the listeners. Chartbusters like ‘Oru Murai’, ‘Yaar Aval Yaro’ are cherry picks and the album lives up to its hyped expectations.
Verdict: Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal – Always cherishable.
