Ajantha (Tamil – Ilayaraja)

Posted by Karthik

Does Ilayaraja use a calendar to track existential things like dates/ year? With an overwhelming dose of déjà vu across this soundtrack, it seems to me that he hasn’t crossed the two decades that the rest of world has. Strangely, that’s what holds this soundtrack! Barring Yaarum and Yaarkku yaar the rest of the tunes are quite bland. Minor flourishes like that awesome prelude in Thoorigai, a resonant Aaye giridhar and the horribly begun Idho changing tracks does help. That however doesn’t absolve three versions of a sleep-inducing Yenge irundhaai. If only this was a native Malayalam/ Telugu film soundtrack….!

Keywords: Ilayaraja, Ramana
