Thandavakkone (Music review), Tamil – Ilayaraja

Posted by Karthik

Kaatu vazhi seems like the perfect anthem for renunciation of material life; the ominous orchestration and Raja’s vocals too back this beautifully. Tippu’s deeply repentant Unna pol and Sriram Parthasarathy’s personally remorseful Enna pol both hold the same tune in fascinatingly different shades. Aanukkulla latchanangal seems tame in comparison; standard Raja melody, but the way Haricharan enters is a nice touch. Manicka Vinayagam recites Raja’s philosophical verses amidst mesmerizing orchestration in Neeral udal kazhuvi, while Kula deivam is the odd one out, refurbished from 1990. Thandavakkone seems reflective of Ilayaraja’s state of mind and hence makes for an engrossing listen.
