Jannal Oram (Music review), Tamil – Vidyasagar
Ennadi ennadi, despite that divergent goat-herd interlude that unnecessarily mars the flow, gets its tune beautifully right, with shades of Jog raag and a simple, harmonious orchestration! Aasa vecha manasula is very Raja-during-his-peak – that absorbing and interesting a tune, while the searing pathos in Yela mala thopa comes out impressively in Anuradha Sriram and Velmurugan’s accomplished vocals. Unna paakama is fairly listenable, but mighty average for Vidyasagar’s lofty standards. Athili puthili and Aatho appatho end up as mere background’ish materials. Karu Palaniappan’s record with Vidayasagar is fantastic and Jannal Oram extends that, but – disappointingly – only half-way through the soundtrack.
