Tamizh Padam 2 (Music review), Tamil – N.Kannan

Posted by Karthik

Naan Yaarumilla makes up for its medley’ish tune (based presumably on Vakulabharanam raaga, evoking MS Viswanathan’s Engeyum Eppodhum) with outrageously funny lyrics by C S Amudhan and Chandru that skewer the superstar culture of Tamil films. Vaa Vaa Kaama‘s sensuous lyrics and melody harks back to Ilayaraja’s similar numbers—particularly over the charanam lines, “Urugida Vidu Puthu Rasam Edu” and “Thazhuvidu Enai Thathumpidum Suvai”. Kalavarame, besides the catchy gimmick of the rapid-fire utterance of certain words, has a wonderfully immersive melody (a possible blend of Naatai, Gambeera Naatai and Maand raagas), besides being sung brilliantly by Chinmayi and Pradeep! En Nadanam too is mighty impressive, with its grand prelude, stupendous singing by Sharreth and Vijay Prakash and a really lush and majestic melody accompanied by veena and superb tabla. Evada Unna Petha has Ranina Reddy inciting violence all around in C S Amudhan’s hilarious parody starting with STR’s Evandi Unna Pethan! Jithin and Sowmya’s Chella Penney has a breezy, guitar-led ballad sound, while the 3 short tracks pass muster. The most interesting aspect about Tamizh Padam 2’s soundtrack is that it ‘sounds’ fantastic while also making you strongly suspect that the joke will be on you when they appear on screen!

Listen to the songs on YouTube:

  • Prasanna Ramachandran

    Do you get the feeling that each song is styled after a different music director (another layer of spoofing)? Evada Unna – GVP/YSR, Naan Yaarumilla – SaNA, Kalavarame – Harris, Aatharamaanai – Maragathamani (chanelling Baahubali) etc… The more I listen the more I hear the hints
