Velayudham (Music review), Tamil – Vijay Antony
For a pure propaganda song, Rathathim rathame has a mighty engaging tune and orchestration combo; beautifully sung by Haricharan too! Molachu moonu‘s lyrics seem completely inappropriate to this ‘fasting season’, but the song’s melody is absolutely captivating! But, despite its catchy rhythm, Chillax just drones on, with Charulatha Mani’s cringe-worthy ‘carnatic’ Chillax rendition too, in between! Maayam seithaayo is no different – more non-descript droning. The soundtrack peters out miserably with Sonnaa puriyaathu and Velaa Velaa – both are embarrassingly monotonous and boring. Composer Vijay Antony did start the soundtrack well, but sadly loses track after those two lovely songs!
