Vandha Mala – Arun Raja Kamaraj, Gana Bala, Karunaas
An enjoyable retro style number which tries to put the pub material with ‘Madras’ Gana with quirky lyrics. G.V. Prakash offers three flavors in the first 40 seconds by throwing three dimensions with string sections, trumpets, and an energetic chorus. The usage of popular dialogues goes well with the tune and evokes some foot tapping moments.
Unnale – Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghosal
The ever dependable Shreya Ghosal and the ultimate Shankar Mahadevan have delivered a poisonous melody. It is good to see G.V has started to think beyond his wife Saindhavi for melodies. The base tune is strongly rooted to some Ilayaraja’s composition in the past, but we leave that to you to decode the same.
Sattena Idi Mazhai – G.V. Prakash, Megha
The composer tries his best to inject some life to this wearisome number and falls short miserably in the first half of the song itself. Apart from Megha’s breezy appearance for a while, nothing else is impressive in this track.
Un Vizhigalil – Harini
G.V. Prakash dishes one more beguiling melody and this time he roped in, Harini, who captured millions of heart in the late 90’s and disappeared off the radar for a long time. This song could well be her second home coming and may she continue singing forever!
Anbe Anbe – G.V. Prakash
The composer makes up big time for his intial effort with ‘Satten Idi Mazhai’ and delivers a gorgeous melody to round off the album on a high! It is good to see a song which extends for more than 6 mins and still sounds good. The sound arrangements, compostion, and G.V’s butter’ish vocals is sure to do multiple laps in our playlist.
Verdict: A middling album with two gorgeous melodies.
Pick(s) of the album – Unnale, Anbe Anbe
Rating: 2.5/5
