Udhayan (Music review), Tamil – Manikanth Kadri
Evan ivan seems pedestrian as a tune, but the composer’s lovely little nuances make up for that. Laka laka is a decent kuthu, well orchestrated, but Prasanna’s relatively softer lead vocals plays spoilsport. As is norm for any composer in Tamil, Ponga vechom goes native folk with a vengeance, while the title song goes bombastic in praising the just-into-his-second-film hero. The soundtrack’s highlights are Karthik’s Ithanai yugamai – a fabulously conceived melody – and Ring ting featuring Baba Sehgal, Suchitra and Lock Up, that, despite the absurd lyrics, offers an instantly hummable tune! Above average Tamil debut by Manikanth Kadri.
