Rejoinder on ‘Ilaignan’ (Tamil) – music by Vidyasagar
Vidyasagar’s score for the Tamil film Ilaignan deserved a 200 – just for Imai thoodhane and Thozha vaanam. The former is something I can’t get over – Chinmayi’s astonishing vocals; the way she links the end of pallavi to the soaring music…scintillating! The arrangements too (as pointed out by Wootshire as ‘a cross between a habanera and tango’ and not Waltz) are magical! Thozha is perfectly rousing – that musical piece that kick-starts after the vocal prelude is amazing! The use of chorus is mesmerizing all through the song, Hariharan towering over them! Apologies to Vidyasagar for my error in judgment!
