Saguni (Music review), Tamil – GV Prakash Kumar
Kandha kaara vadai is a competent kuthu with the right dose of engaging mod sounds and rhythmically apt lyrics by Paramu; Shankar Mahadevan is, as usual, perfect. Vella bambaram is a poor and unimaginative rehash of Rahman’s Uppu karuvaadu, while Orambo vandivarudhu’s long-lost twin brother, Pottadhu pathalai works very well as a drunk-kuthu, thanks largely to Velmurugan’s spirited singing. Annachi falls as flat as the politician’s promise it parodies, but Manasellam, despite the gorgeous melody shamelessly aping Rahman again, is a great listen. Saguni sees GV Prakash channeling his inner Harris Jeyaraj, particularly the one who works with director Hari.
