Review on songs - Jan to Apr '09

Though the audio industry of malayalam cine field was not on the peak in the first 4 months of the year, we got more releases in tamil during the period and most of them have got some hit songs in it.

‘Villu’ by Vijay-Prabhudeva team had got Devi Sree Prasad’s music. In it, fast number ‘Daddy mummy…’ sung by actress Mamtha Mohandas and Naveen was a hit number. All the songs had got typical style by DSP. ‘Vaada mappilai…’, ‘Jalsa…’ and ‘Nee kopappettal…’ were also notable.

In ‘Silambattom’, done by Silambarasan, ‘Machaa machaa…’ song was different, since it was sung by Ilayaraja. The romantic duet with Balashende has got music by his his son Yuvan Shankar Raja. The film has also got remix version of ‘Vachikkava…’ song done by Raja in the past.

Dhanush’ film ‘Padikkathavan’ had got some good songs by Manisharma. Among them ‘Raanki rankamma…’ song lead by Udit Narayan has got the tune necessary to be a hit. 'Hey vetri vela...' and 'Hey rosu rosu...' were also hits.

‘13B’ acted by Madhavan has got Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music; ‘Kaatrile vaasame…’ song by Shankar Mahadevan and Chitra was a different melody.

‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu’ acted by new stars had got a new music director Selvaganesh, all the songs were apt for the situations. Karthik and Chinmayee had sung a beautiful number ‘Lesa parakkuthu manassu…’

After the hangover of ‘Naakku mukku…’ song, music director Vijay Antony has done a similar number in the form of ‘Aathichoodi…’, sung by him, the song comes in the film ‘TN 07 AL 4777’.

Soorya’s latest film, ‘Ayan’ had got music by Harris Jayaraj. His flavor is yet again revealed through songs like ‘Nenje nenje…’, ‘Oyayiye…’, ‘Vizhi moodi…’ etc.

The back ground score for the film ‘Naan Kadavul’ done by Ilayaraja was prominent with the mood of the film.

Best Albums : Ayan, Villu

‘Makante Achan’ acted by Vineeth Sreenivasan has got ‘Othorumichoru…’ song done by M.Jayachandran. If the song is memorable, then it is only because of the negative style in singing.

‘Vennilave…’ is a hit melody in 'Sagar Alias Jacky’, sung by Shreya Ghoshal and MG Sreekumar, music is by Gopi Sundar.

Though released late by 5years, film ‘Nammal Thammil’ had got a romantic number sung by Yesudas and Sujatha for M.Jayachandran, ‘Junile nilamazhayil…’

Almost all the songs of ‘Banaras’ were excellent and had got an unique style. M.Jayachandran once again scored through songs like ‘Koovaram kili…’ (Vijay Yesudas, Swetha), ‘Chandhu thottille…’ (Shreya Ghoshal), ‘Madhuram Gayathi…’ (Shreye Ghoshal, Sudeep Kumar).

Jayaram’s film ‘Samastha Keralam PO’ had got ‘Sundaree En Sundaree...’ song by Vijaya Yesudas for M.Jayachandran.

Sathyan Anthikkad’s latest film with Jayaram, ‘Bhagyadevatha’ has got 3 songs by Ilayaraja in his 'new style'; ‘Allippoove mallippoove...’ song by Vijay Yesudas and Swetha has got the flavor of the Raja songs in the early periods, it will be notable for its excellent visuals. 'Aazhithira thannil...' can also become a hit.

Though the film ‘To Harihar Nagar’ is a hit, we can’t agree with Alex Paul who had remixed the memorable numbers like ‘Unnam maranna…’ and ‘Ekandha chandrike…’ to a disaster.

Best Album : Banaras

Being made in English and Hindi, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ had got big recognition for the music for AR Rahman. It had got ‘Jay ho…’ song, since it seems to be the best song in the world, let us not further discuss about its quality.

‘Delhi 6‘, acted by Abhishek Bachan was Rahman’s latest hindi release after the Oscar fever. ‘Mazakali…’ sung by Mohit Chauhan and ‘Gendha phool…’ sung by Rekha Bharadwaj, Shradha Pandit and Sujatha Mazumdhar were notable since it has got a different style of presentation.

‘Marjaani...’ song by Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan in ‘Billu’ was a typical song in Sharukh Khan’ style; music is by Pritam.

Songs in ‘Raaz 2’ done by Raju Singh were not memorable enough to be quoted here.
