Iravukku Aayiram Kangal (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.

Posted by Karthik

Sam builds Iravukku Aayiram Kangal’s soundtrack by splitting the mood literally in two equal parts. Uyir uruvaatha and Yean penne neeyum are pleasant and so full of love, while Yea pa yeppappa (and Nights Of Neverland) and Winds Of The Darkest Hour are ominous and portending. Uyir uruvaatha, structured around that instantly likeable hook, gains enormously from the fabulous singing of Chinmayi and Sathyaprakash. The second interlude, akin to a classical carnatic jugalbandi where Sam makes two instruments converse, is a particularly fantastic touch. In Yean penne neeyum, Manoj’s violin and Kishore’s sitar jostle for equal attention along with Haricharan’s dependably wonderful rendition of Sam’s charming melody that pleads the woman in question. Yea pa yeppappa has Sam grunging his way through the vocals, in a showy, superbly orchestrated package, punctuated by Swagatha S. Krishnan’s humming in the latter half. Sam picks the first interlude from Yea pa skilfully to create Nights Of Neverland and it works beautifully as a standalone instrumental variant, reaching a stupendous high and ending on a serenely and completely ominous note! Winds Of The Darkest Hour is equally good, if not a bit more flamboyant and pulsating. Sam effortlessly reaches his Vikram Vedha-high, once again.

PS: If, by any chance, you start wondering that 1:03-1:07 in Winds Of The Darkest Hour sounds very familiar, look no further. Listen to 0:31-0:35 here 🙂
