Music review: Vettaikkaran (Tamil – Vijay Antony)
Puli urumudhu, that eulogizes Vijay’s animal-like power, is loud and mundane, with a staid rhythm. Oru chinna thamarai, however, works beautifully as a catchy, well-orchestrated track, with its melody intact; like Karigalan, another power duet, which has a lilting folk tune and some hip native embellishments by Vijay Antony. Naan adicha is literally an assault – the lyrics threaten bodily harm, while the Srikanth Deva’esque tune and orchestration is aural assault. En uchimandai – musically and lyrically – is guaranteed to evoke a massive WTF! Vijay Antony’s Vijay debut is a de-risked effort – 3 noisy annoyances and 2 masala melodies.
