Puthiya Thiruppangal (Music review), Tamil – Vidyasagar

Posted by Karthik

Vaada vaada is loud and raucous in an enjoyable way; rhythmic and superbly sung by Rahul Nambiar. Iru idhayam sernthu is that melody that the composer is known really well for – brilliantly orchestrated with a lilting sound and really well sung by Karthik. Oru thuli is yet another example where Vidyasagar proves credentials with a carnatic-tinged Raja style melody. In Yaar indha kulathinil, Andrea seems to be trying a different pitch – the result is middling, but the breezy Western pop sound works in the composer’s favour. It’s utterly baffling why Vidyasagar is not in mainstream circulation these days!

    Iru idhayam serndhu sound like kanden kanden song from pirivom sandhipom.

    • Thiru Vetti


  • Decent composers like Vidyasagar/Bharadwaj have been sidelined now, pretty sad. New talent must come in but there can be a balance. Many directors cling on to the same composers (which I feel) shows they are scared to try something new, especially when there is so much new talent like K, Ghibran, Girrish, Santhosh Narayanan.

    Yaar Intha = Justin Timberlake’s Like I Love you.

  • Thiru Vetti

    Its baffling because people have lost taste in listening to good melody songs.

    Too much techno or electronic sounds have sort of rewritten our ears in such a way that pure melodies or classical fusion songs of Vidyasagar sound ordinary to many!

    Vidyasagar will always remain the Melody heir of Ilayaraja.
