Music review: Naan Aval Adhu (Tamil – GV Prakash Kumar, RP Patnaik & Prasanna Shekhar)
Prasanna Shekhar’s Nee dooramaai ponalum echoes some of his Hindi tracks with limited nativity, but with adequate haunt-value, in tune with theme. Of the two GV Prakash composed songs – Vaa nila works thanks to Mahati’s confident vocals and a simply, hummable tune. Aagaayam irangiya, with husky vocals by Sunitha Sarathy is ambient but disjoint. RP Patnaik’s title song and its variant, Kaadhal oru kaatru are simplistic, but with an appealing tune that lingers. The original version of this film, Darling, had functional music – so does the Tamil remake. Wondering why Dharan’s promo song is dropped from the soundtrack, however!
