Naan (Music review), Tamil – Vijay Antony
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.
