Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

Posted by Karthik

Maelae maelae, barring its Elay keechan’ness, is a pretty good listen, using mandolin, guitars and the clap sound to accentuate Karthik’s fantastic vocals. Anbe anbe too, with Harish Raghavendra and Harini’s vocals gets its gorgeous tune really well, even though the backgrounds reek of multiple other Harris songs. Sara saravedi‘s highlight is the ghatam-guitar sound, but the tune gives up even as soon as it starts, while Vizhiyae is Harris regurgitating his Suttum vizhi sudare in a mildly altered package. Pallakku devadhaiya is a pointless exercise in Harris trying to emulate Imman. Kathirvelan’s kaadhal starts well, but eventually peters out.

    You have got a great ear and heart to distinguish between the minor differences in each song which easily invokes the memory of a previous song from Harris or some other Md!

    Usually harris copies bit portions from rahman’s songs and they are less evident..this time he stretches his luck too much..copies an entire song even the chorus portion with minor alteration..

    Hi Bro,
    Could you review Rahman’s Highway album?

    As much as I hate Harris’s copying, Elay keechan’s guitar riffs itself seems like a lift from this Again I’m not sure as I’m no music geek. You may be able to point out…
