Ayyanar (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S
Kuthu kuthu bravely reinvents the often abused kuthu genre – no, not with that staid, but pulsating, non-stop rhythm – but with a tune that traverses in many interesting ways, supported ably by the 3 singers. Paniye is no doubt impeccably arranged, but it drops its bland opening tune only as it progresses into the second interlude and charanam, into that brilliant, Ilayaraja’esque soundscape! Pachai kili is strangely banal, but, with a Yuvan-styled enthusiasm, Aathadi offers a gorgeous melody with Naveen at its helm! More than functional music by Thaman, who may have been constrained by the film maker’s imagination.
