Kadikara Manithargal (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.
Kadhal pennae rides on Karthik’s dependably excellent vocals and the little nuances Sam layers, like the dramatic change in rhythm to start and end the anupallavi, and that really short and fast, ‘Kanavula needhaan’ piece that he uses just once, to great effect! Theera oru and Yaeno are outdated in every conceivable way; routine pathos packaging from the 80s/90s. Sam’s awkward vocals in both songs makes things worse. Pattasu Vedingada, despite highly enthusiastic singing by Mukesh, Antony Dhasan and Velmurugan, and an upbeat tune by Sam, is patchy at best. Kadhal penne is the lone savior of Kadikara Manithargal’s soundtrack.
