Taramani (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja
Yaaro ucchikilai meley is vintage Yuvan; lilting rhythm and a pleasant melody. Unn badhil vendi‘s tune seems retrofitted on Na.Muthukumar’s poetry, and Unnai‘s verses seem even more melody-agnostic, going ‘Nee sirithu mayakkum muganool padangalukku, en aanmaavilirundhu araivari eduthu ezhudhinaal podhum, nee Like seivaai‘, resulting in an uncomfortably perfunctory tune. Kaadhal oru kattukkadhai rides largely on a catchy musical hook, while Andrea’s diva-act helps Oru koappai‘s intoxicating tune, with a corny public service message inserted mid-way! In Paavangalai, Mukesh, Senthildass and Yuvan deliver an old-worldly Muslim devotional song with adequate piety. Taramani’s lighter tracks work better than the moody, serious ones.
