Thaamirabharani (Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja)
Is Kattabomman supposed to sound like a powerful entry song? It is muted and lacks any kind of impact. Vaartha onnu takes from parts of Pattiyal’s Dei namma and seems largely situational. Thiruchendooru muruga is a throw back on the 90s Rahman with minimal rhythms and a simple flow of tune. Thaaliye is soft and monotonous, drifting aimlessly while the blatant rip-off of the popular religious number Karpoora naayagiye, Karuppaana kaiyaale is just that – a rip-off, unwanted in a composer of Yuvan’s caliber. Hari’s move off his regular composers – Harris Jeyaraj and Bharadwaj – has yielded him pretty sub-standard results.
