Ilaignan (Music review), Tamil – Vidyasagar

Posted by Karthik

The waltzy Imai thoodhane makes stunning use of the genre in a Tamil context and the music is top-notch – a fantastic showcase for Vidyasagar’s orchestration skills. Chinmayi is brilliant form too! The orchestral flourishes stay on in Mazhayil kulitha and Oru nila, which have trademark Vidyasagar melodies for company. Of the two motivational songs, Neeya neeya pales in comparison to the much more accomplished Thozha vaanam; Thozha, in fact has fabulous vocals by the chorus and Hariharan, besides absolutely mesmerizing orchestral background! Vidyasagar goes many steps ahead with his arrangements in Ilaignan; his music is thematic and beautifully nuanced!

Note: Rejoinder on Ilaignan’s review – this one deserved a 200 – apologies to Vidyasagar.

Keywords: Pa. Vijay, Ramya Nambeesan, Vidyasagar
