Have a look at Yennai Arindhaal music review here...
Song 01 : Yaen Ennai
Singers: Sunitha Sarathy, Karishma Ravichandran
Yaen Ennai is a good composition but definitely not the first of its kind. Sunitha Sarathy and Karishma Ravichandran had owned the song with the variations in their rendition. Both have complemented each other and had done the justice to the composition and lyrics.
Song 02 : Mazhai Vara Pogudhae
Singers: Karthik, Emcee Jesz
Harris Jayaraj has stored a melody for Karthik in his album and it is 'Mazhai Vara Pogudhae' here. This is also a perfect example for Harris-Gautham Menon combo, with the mix of melody and rap portions in the orchestration. The song carries a heard before feel, even after having acoustic strumming and synthesized interludes that are delight to hear with back ground instrumentation.
Song 03 : Unahhenna Venum Sollu
Singers: Benny Dayal, Mahati
Benny Dayal is back with a melody after a long time, he sounds refreshing. Harris Jayaraj needs a special mention for tunes, they are so simple yet elegant. The song is sure to be on listeners mind for long time for its lyrics and feel. Chorus by Mahati and Benny himself takes the song to next level
Song 04 : Yennai Arindhaal
Singers: Devan Ekambaram, Mark Thomas, Abhishek
Yennai Arindhaal song is a perfect title track for Thala. Thamarai's lyrics are neatly placed with electric guitar interludes and layered instrumentation. Visuals are expected to be a treat in Gautham Menon direction. This is more a theme than a song.
Song 05 : Adhaaru Adhaaru
Singers: Vijay Prakash Gaana Bala
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivan
Adhaaru Adhaaru is like a casual celebration number and is expected to have some heavy dance steps by Ajith and Arun Vijay in marriage backdrop. Gaana Bala and Vijay Prakash have done great job.
Song 06 : Maaya Bazaar
Singers: Alaap Raju, Priya Subramanian, Velmurugan, Krishna Iyer
Maaya Bazaar song takes you to different generations of music styles. Starting with Gatodhgajan retro style to montage to Kalyana Samayal Sadham with nadaswarum and drums that finally ends with a lively Temple chorus. It must be a purposeful song, wait for the visuals.
Song 07 : Idhayathai Yedho Ondru
Idhayathai is a breezy melody in Chinmayi soft vocals. This song is sure to be on reapeat mode for music lovers. Thamarai's lyrics are beautifully complemented by grand piano scores. Flute and guitar interludes takes the song a step higher. Though it is a reprise of 'Unakenna venum sollu', Idhayathai is soulful and different in its own way.
Final Verdict: Simple yet engrossing album – Pick of the lot...
