Music Review (Tamil): Vanamagan

Music Review (Tamil): Vanamagan
Music Composer: Harris Jayaraj

Damn Damn is an engrossing composition from Harris Jayaraj and the tune flows freely traversing through different rhythms while Harris manages to keep the listener's hooked with listenable backgrounds. Sherin Shahana's gruff singing sounds apt for the casual lyrics of Madhan Karky. Yemma Yea Alagamma is the tune which Harris tried and tested umpteen number of times while Bombay Jayashree continues to sing the composer's tweaked tunes impeccably. Haricharan ably supports her with his brief portions and the orchestration is passable one with a brief respite in the form of violin solo in the second interlude.

Silu Silu's droning tune is backed by the earnest vocals of Vijay Yesudas and the arrangements by the composer are pedestrian one devoid of any exceptional highlights. The only engaging factor being the flute solos thrown intermittently throughout the track and the orchestration are monotonous which makes this track least interesting one.Morada Morada's tune and the rhythms remind the listeners the innumerable number of composer's earlier compositions especially Aadhavan and at last Harris infuses his penchant for the gibberish verses in the second half of the soundtrack. Krish and Benny Dayal sounds apt for this typical Harris Jayaraj tune.Pachai Uduthiya Kaadu is an absolute winner from the soundtrack and the simple guitar laden track filled with occasional flute sections is a delight to listen. Abhay Jodhpurkar and Harini ably delivers the pleasant tune and Madhan Karky's beautiful lyrics accentuates the enchanting tune. Harini's velvety voice deserves lot more songs compared to the number of songs she is getting these days.Harris Jayaraj weaves his gibberish sounds for the apt movie and delivers it as theme track, however, an undeniable winner in the theme track is Flute Kamalakhar's work in this two and half minute track.

Verdict: Harris Jayaraj's 50th album is indisputably best album from the composer in recent times, however recycling of his earlier compositions being the usual grouse from the composer.

My Rating:7.5/10 

Pick of the Album: Pachai Uduthiya Kaadu, Yemma Yea Alagamma, Damn Damn
