Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja
Yuvan is in his standard form, in his vocals and the music, in Unakkagave; funky melody with now-likeable off-key singing. Mazhai mazhai is Yuvan of Paiyyaa form – instantly catchy pop powered by Karthik, while Padapadakkudhu’s neat melody+rap combo too works smoothly. Neha Bhasin’s Kaadhal enthan kaadal reserves the best for anupallavi, with captivating morsing and nadaswaram adorning the rhythmic tune! Aaha kaadhal is the soundtrack’s best, sung brilliantly by Nandini Srikar; Raja’esque interludes and a gorgeous tune that sounds like
Nattakurinji Bahudari/ Nagaswarali (thanks to Sriram Guruswamy in the comments) layered over the anupallavi of MSV’s Bharathi Kannamma from Ninaithaale Inikkum. Vasanth and Yuvan’s combination continues to rock!
PS: It’s a pity ‘Stop the paattu’, the 6th song in this soundtrack has not been added to the CD in the first round. The wonderfully energetic track, sung by Ramesh Vinayagam ranks alongside Aaha kaadhal as the album’s best, with its addictive hooks and nadaswaram mix.
