Naan (Music review), Tamil – Vijay Antony

Posted by Karthik

Harris Jeyaraj’ish gibberish opens Makayala, but beyond its interesting guitar usage, it doesn’t stay. Vijay demonstrates almost Yuvan-like awkwardness in his rendition in Ulaginil, but he has an endearing tune to help him. Thappellaam gets everything right – uniquely sung, while Vijay’s orchestration is equally catchy, particularly the use of a Middle Eastern’ish string instrument. Dinam dinam‘s sweeping pathos feel is reminiscent of Raja’s repertoire in places, more so when the violin joins the tune intricately – makes for a lovely listen. No one is perfect theme just does a haphazard mix of other tunes. Naan’s music only occasionally engages.

    I generally go with your reviews to take a listen to albums. So the same with Naan….but recently when everybody was buzzing about makayala..i took a listen to the sing..and i liked it…I am interested to know your views if you would have taken a chance to listen/watch the song….

      Yes, I notice Vijay Antony’s item songs very carefully. He has a good ear for such songs going by his track record. This one, however, was underwhelming, in my opinion. Didn’t really catch on to it.

        coincidentally,i have seen the song yesterday.the song even made me to watch the is much engaging because of good picturisation.
        i never considered him as a good md before ,but after watching the movie ,i changed my opinion.
