Thaarai Thappattai (Music review), Tamil – Ilayaraja
The earthy Hero intro theme brings back the heydays of Karakattakaran. In Vathana vathana, Kavitha Gopi and Priyadarshini’s full-throated singing and the captivating tune evoke pleasant memories of Veetukku veetukku. Paaruruvaaya gets a mesmerizing Mayamalavagowlai treatment; Sathya Prakash and Surmukhi deliver it with incredible piety. Sharreth’s vocals and the Shubhapantuvarali raaga layers Idarinum with excruciating melancholy. M.M.Manasi and Prasanna’s playful banter comes alive in Aattakkari‘s beautiful melody, complete with Raja’s trademark violins. Aarambamaavathu, Raja’s recreation of Viswanathan-Ramamurthy’s original from Thanga Padhumai has a stronger native folk touch. The theme is very intense; very Bala. Aptly affecting, Bala-style soundtrack from Raja.
