Music review: Mundhinam Paartheney (Tamil – Thaman S)

Posted by Karthik

Indre indre has an old-worldly charm to it – Ranjith gets a cracker of a melody that allows him to vary his range, even as Thaman adds charming layers to the track. Pesum poove and Manadhin adiyil sound almost like Harris Jeyaraj’s material – the former holds a similar dose of panache in Krish’s vocals, while the latter’s lovely rock’ish base and Priyadarshini’s synthesized vocals add oomph! Maya is the only mildly-interesting track that, despite a heartfelt effort by Naresh Iyer and a sprightly orchestration towards the end, tends to feel a bit jaded – Naresh strangely sounds exactly like Yuvan in the ‘Paarkumbodhey’ bit! Kanavena has more of Thaman’s Eeram sound – a song that builds its appeal slowly and steadily, and ends with a bang! The composer gets behind the mike and sounds like Rahman in the jazzy title song that manages the impossible – remove traces of the title’s indelible impression left by Harris’ memorable earlier composition. The most striking aspect of the soundtrack is the lack of conventional tune structures – almost every song has a fresh pattern with the unconventional bits hitting off immediately! After last year’s Eeram, Thaman displays tremendous confidence and delivers a sweet whopper!
