Karthik is in his elements in Kanimozhiye, a typically breezy Harris-style melody – it is loaded with familiar elements from the composer’s repertoire, but the really absorbing tune makes all the difference! Two veterans – SP Balasubramaniam and lyricist Vairamuthu rule En kaadhal thee, a slow-burning tune with Harris playing around with interesting accompaniments like […]

Thuppaki (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

Vijay does well in Google google, a basic, but foot-tapping song where Andrea provides excellent support. Kutti puli koottam sounds straight out of the fag-end of Rahman’s music for pointless Prabhu Deva films – plain embarrassing! Antarctica is amazingly non-descript, regurgitated Harris material. Poi varava is pleasant, but too standard within Harris’ usual template to […]

Rettai kathirae, despite the appallingly templatized tune, offers comfort in familiarity; that it is a pleasant duet sung well by Krish and MK Balaji helps. Naani koni is no different – the enthusiastic vocals make up for the laziness in Harris’ tune-making; interestingly Vijay Prakash sings ‘Naani’, while Shreya sings ‘NaaNi’, as it should be […]

Kaadhal oru butterfly is an endearing mix charming guitar, catchy hook and interludes and a slow, lovely tune – nothing earth shatteringly new here, but what is conjured works very well! Azhage azhage and Akila akila aren’t that lucky – the orchestration and tune reek of excessive familiarity, but the former’s bridge at the end […]

Nanban (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

With friendship-friendly lyrics and Krish’s bombastic vocals, Harris builds En frienda pola into a hummable, anthemic song! Heartiley battery re-imagines an already popular catch-phrase into a fresh, catchy track, while the guitar’y, short Endhan kan munney makes for a breezy listen. Irukkaannaa finds Harris recycling his own Vettayaadu Vilayaadu material in a messy package, even […]

7aum Arivu (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

Mun andhi‘s sedate, romantic melody seems perfunctory with usual Harris bells and whistles, while Innum enna thozha is a mighty impactful motivational track with excellent vocals. The much-hyped Chinese song, The Rise of Damo sounds authentic and sweeping, with interesting mix of Dramyen, Ruan (Prakash Hariharan) and Veena (Rajesh Vaidya), besides flute. The rest of […]

Bombay Jayshree and Karthik present Javed Akhtar’s verses beautifully in Chahoon bhi; Harris plays his part with a lovely guitar backdrop. Uyirin Uyire’s third avatar, Khwabon khwabon continues to be a scintillating number – despite borrowing that prominent riff from Rammstein’s Du hast. Main chali reuses Harris’ own Manasa nuvvante (Munna), but spruces it up […]

Kandaen (Music review), Tamil – Vijay Ebenezer

Enge en idhayam, Aa haa and Narmada are fabulously breezy and pleasant, with a more-than-obvious smattering of Harris’ style. Ninaivugal and Yaavarukkum thalaivan evoke some of Vijay’s Tamil Christian musical pieces; Devan and Chinmayi make both tracks eminently listenable, however; the imaginative arrangements in the latter, in particular, are delightful. Cassanova is a short keyboard-loaded […]

The title song is built like Eric Clapton’s beautiful ballad, Wonderful Tonight, but it is more in the feel/genre. The song on its own is amazing, with Aalaap Raju’s touching vocals and carefully assembled, enchanting arrangements. Naresh Iyer rocks through Thee illai, a song reminiscent of some random track from Minnale, but in slow motion, […]

Orange (Music review), Telugu – Harris Jayaraj

Oola olala moves predictably, but it’s overriding pleasantness, thanks largely to Karunya’s infectious vocals, helps. Karthik and Naresh Iyer breeze through Chilipiga and Nenu nuvvantu; good old tune-smithing by Harris – gorgeous melodies with simple, nuanced arrangements in both, particularly the latter. Vijay Prakash sounds like Devi Sri Prasad in the joyous Hello ramante – […]
