36 Vayadhinile (Music review), Tamil – Santhosh Narayanan
A decade ago, Happy would have been a gaana song. Santhosh Narayanan turns the same lyrics (hilarious, ponder-worthy, by Vivek) into a funky, rhythmic tune! Pogiren has standard-issue inspirational lyrics and even Kalpana Raghavendar sounds less impressive; it’s only Santhosh’s soaring music that holds the song. Rasathi has Santhosh’s trademark – unusual and alluring orchestration and singer/composer Pradeep Kumar’s mother, Lalitha delivers it with panache! Of the scores, President oddly seems like John Williams’ Jurassic Park score, for a less dangerous reptile. Kannadi, Vidiyal, Kanavugal and Kanneer are, however, highly emotive and Mysshkin’ish too! Santhosh’s short soundtrack is Happy Rasathi.
