Vaaraayo Vennilaave (Music review), Tamil – Karthik Raja

En kadhal has a lovely tune, but with clunky synth that’s undone only by the interludes and nifty violin in the anupallavi. Pony Prakash Raj seems like a horribly wrong choice for the reprise, though. Kannadi parkkama gets the singer (Yuvan) and the period (2001?) wong. Intha aylesa fares marginally better, thanks to the pulsating rhythm. Gaana Bala’s Ambaani ponnu is functional gaana, but Uyir ennum holds a mesmerizing Hamsanadham, along with Madhusree’s vocals! The soundtrack’s best is Unnidam ondrai, a magnificently conceived tune that plays imaginatively across two distinct sounds. The good, in Vaaraayo Vennilaave, easily overpowers the middling!
