Kannamoochi Yenada (Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja)
Megam’s mild hiphop’ish backgrounds overlap a cracking melody handled superbly by Haricharan and Shweta while the jazz-lined Andru vandhadhum is a competent re-tuning of the yesteryear classic, though it doesn’t reach New’s Thottal poo malarum’s standards. Kannamoochi’s tune cleverly fuses a mock track emanating out of the popular wedding ‘oonjal’ song, Kannoonjal aadi. Puthampudhu is uninteresting, but the Shankar Mahadevan, Madhushree duet Sanjaram is the pick of the soundtrack – interestingly rhythm’ed and very well orchestrated. The director showcased her nuanced sensibility in her debut and the music she’s got out of Yuvan here is both mature and thoroughly enjoyable.
