Ennul Aayiram (Music review), Tamil – Gopi Sundar

Posted by Karthik

Uyiril‘s ethereal tune rides on Chinmayi’s indulgent vocals, set to a serene guitar-backed sound. She also rules over the breezy Kaathu kidandha, punctuated by Gopi’s trademark chorus. Kadhal kolluthadi‘s enchanting melody invokes Ilayaraja’s Sumam prati sumam*, and Gopi orchestrates it beautifully. Punjiriyo mixes the Malayalam sound to Tamil cleverly, while Adada, while being perfectly melodious, sounds like a medley of Gopi’s older songs. Thallu Thallu‘s middling techno sound paves way to a more tolerable kuthu, while Mutham venduma is a bad remix of Gopi’s own Choti jindagi**. While still a very listenable package, the reuse-led strain is beginning to show.

*Sumam Prathi Sumam – Maharshi
**From Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju

    Karthik, the raga for the Sumam song is called Rishivani (credit to Ilaiyaragam raga list). Kadhal Kolluthadi indeed seems to sound like that, though only a seasoned musician can vouch for it.

      Yes, I came across that raga while searching for Sumam’s raga. Have never heard of it, so didn’t want to name it and connect it to Kaadhal kolluthadi.
