Aravaan (Music review), Tamil – Karthik
Nila nila poguthae is predictably dulcet and is a pleasant listen as well, thanks to lovely singing by Vijay Prakash and Harini. Na.Muthukumar shines with his verses in Unna kolla poren even as the faux-rustic tune overdoses on the usual ghatam-based orchestration. Oruvaan iruvaan goes about in timeworn style to introduce the hero, but Oore oore surprises with its lively vocal interplay and imaginative backgrounds! Kalavuda and Naagamalai sanchiduchu have a bewildering array of sounds, but the tunes don’t register, while only singer Subhiksha rises above the derivative filmy ‘classical’ song, Nandakumara. Disappointingly safe and innocuous composing debut by Karthik.
