Oyee (Music review), Tamil – Ilayaraja

Posted by Karthik

It’s difficult to decide what is more cringe-worthy in Eden Garden – Raja’s music or the bizarre lyrics that perhaps wanted to refer to Garden of Eden, but ends up talking about Kolkata’s cricket stadium. Mannin magane is far worse – massively outdated synth cringe fest. Mudinja oru kai paru is equally weird, invoking lyrical and musical style of films of a different era. Entha ooru, thankfully, has Raja in his home turf, with Ekadhasi’s lyrics and earthy music coming together well. Thendral varum is vintage Raja – dulcet melody, albeit with a Karthikraja’ish, now-too-familiar sound. Awkward soundtrack from Raja.

Keywords: Oyee, Ilayaraja

      Mannin Magane reminds me of ARR tune in 90s

    I would genuinely like to know what IR fans think of the Eden Garden song?
    Thendral Varum makes me hold my head high and this is the kinda IR composition that I like and always wait for!

      If an IR fan loves the music liked by today’s common man, this should not be released. Pure ART also changes with times.
