Music review: Maanja Velu (Tamil – Manisharma)

Posted by Karthik

Both the versions of the title song are surprisingly good – the chirpy retro version in particular has the right dose of spoofy fun and is sung delightfully by Mukesh and Priya Subramnaian! The other track that stands out is the Senthamizh Thenmozhiyaal-inspired Unnai nenaicha – catchy combo of mod-retro styles with groovy singing by Rahul Nambiar. Sadly, that’s where the interesting stuff stops – Munneru is noisily mundane; Oh my dear is standard Manisharma techno stuff and Ooril ulla is templatized melody on relationships. But, getting 3 decent tracks in a masala potboiler soundtrack is a huge win indeed!

    Karthik, did you realize that Mani Sharma blatantly used his previous telugu tunes(from Laksyam, Kushi) for this album?? he is seemingly uninterested!

  • Karthik

    Is it? Didn’t recall any specific song as rehashed, but as long as he’s using his own tunes, I don’t see it as an issue!

  • Gopi Chand

    Strictly telugu recycled stuff
    Manja velu – sukku sukku (Lakshyam – Telugu)
    Eppadithan also used in lakshyam as remix of Niluvave.
    Oh Oril Ulla Uriya used in khushi-telugu remix of legend Aaduvari matalaku (Missamma-1955)
