Amma Kanakku (Music review), Tamil – Ilayaraja
It may be unfair to compare Maths tough with its Hindi equivalent in the same situation (Rohan-Vinayak’s Maths mein dubba gul), but on its own too, with Srinisha’s constipated vocals and an awkwardly jumpy rhythm, it’s embarrassing, at best. Unakkum enakkum, however, is all Raja – a prayer’ish melody set amidst calming piano and delivered well by Ramya NSK and Vandana Srinivasan. Haricharan’s version of the same tune, Kadavul padaippil, takes off from the earlier song seamlessly. The two short pieces, Kanavugal and Indha vazhkai, have good enough tunes, but are marred by seemingly over-enthusiastic backgrounds. Disappointing fare by Ilayaraja.
