Anegan (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

Aathadi‘s strength is its gently flowing tune; serene vocals by Bhavatharini and Abhay Jodhpurkar, and a lilting ghatam-based sound. Dheivangal ingae‘s background, on the other hand, is too amatuerish, though Harris’ tune is engaging enough, thanks to Sriram Parthasarathy. Thodu vaanam is trademark Harris, and Hariharan and Shakthisree deliver it well. Roja, led by Shankar […]

The lead song Tanama is a great example of the duo’s sound, but the […]

Azhagazhage harks back to a time when Bahardwaj was adept at creating Laxmikant-Pyarelal styled Hindi-type melodies; considering this film’s production timeline, this seems understandable. Cheran inge is a fantastic melange of inspirational, poignant lyrics and a powerful tune – well sung by Manikumar and Ananthu, with actor Sathyaraj providing voice-over too! Hariharan and Sadhana Sargam […]

Ennendru solvadho has a nursery rhymish simplicity; occasionally likeable, thanks to Harish Raghavendra and Swetha Mohan. Aalaap Raju breathes life into the already breeze tune of Mazhaithuli azhaga, while Ivaldhana and Kalthondrum would make Harris Jayaraj very proud, given the tunes harping on his style perfectly, and not very different from his current middling form […]
