Nambiar (Music review), Tamil – Vijay Antony
Santhanam carries Aara amara impressively – more than being in tune, he brings his dialog swagger to completely own the song! Idhuvarai yarum falls into the intriguingly catchy Malaysian Tamil rap style – the rap portions are layered well on the tune, sung well by Rahul Nambiar and Chinmayi. Kaima kaisa sees Vijay Antony reusing his Mayamalava Gowlai-kuthu template from Yuvan Yuvathy’s Kola kuthu, but with less impact! Saroja Devi (and its other version, Thoongum pennae) is both poorly sung and awkwardly tuned. The theme is a lovely Latino mix, however. Barring the first two songs, this Nambiar is middling.
