என்றென்றும் புன்னகை – The latest from Harris Jeyaraj. From the songs itself we can find out that it is about friendship, love and all that jazz ;). The trailer give a nice vibe… young and carefree… Let us see how this turns out as a movie.
The songs are typical Harris Jeyaraj style, if you keep listening to his songs continuously you can find that the base music is all the same . My favorites of the lot are
a) Ennatha Solla : May be because it has Karthik 🙂 , yeah I am biased.
b) Kadal Naan Thaan: Sudha Ragunathan (classical) and Suzanne (western)…a different combination
c) Ennai Saaithaalae: After a long time Hari Haran.
The rest are not bad to hear, but these sound good to me.
Selvaraghavan’s next movie with lot of expectations: Irandaam Ulagam (Second World). The trailer tells nothing and did confuse me a lot. This looks like a love story, but also a sci-fi and has this time travel thing too. Hmmm.. Have to think twice before going to the theater for this movie. Even though I wouldn’t want to miss it.
But the songs , thankfully, were good to hear. I liked the following ones in particular.
Kani Mozhiye: Karthik’s voice soothes as usual.
Mannavane: Another good one.
Raakkozhi Raakkozhi : Best of the lot.
I don’t know why they kept playing Dhanush’s Pazhangkalla too many times in the radio. It was average. Felt like he is singing the same kind of songs.
The last one for this week :),
Desingu Raja (A already released movie and one I am not planning to watch)
D. Imman is not considered to be a great composer, but I find him very consistent. Even though his songs sound similar to his other songs, there is a sort of different feel to it. He almost has done songs which are very local in nature.
Ammadi Amaadi : A romantic love song and very beautifully sung by Shreya Ghoshal. I just love her voice. So sweet like the honey. And her diction is perfect. And yes it is a repeat in my playlist already.
Oru Ora Ora Paarvai: Average song, but at least doesn’t make me skip it.
Nelaavattam Nethiyile: The typical folk (not the kuthu type) song of D. Imman. Average
Pom Pom Pom: Again very average, but because of the words used, it is going to be a hit among kids just like the Bad Boys ( I really got tired of that song the way my nieces and nephews were playing it on repeat)
Yaarume Kekkave Illa: Average.
Not all songs are great, in fact I am so hooked to Ammadi Ammadi. But then the rest doesn’t make me skip them. And that is a big plus. How comes this movie got good songs 😦
The movie Raja Rani got of to a start with a big rumor that the lead pair got married 🙂 (of course, it was all in the movie). I like this pair. They were sort of cute even in Boss Engira Bhaskaran.
I haven’t liked any of G. V Prakash’s recent tunes. But this one was much better than those.
The symphony ‘A Love for Life’ is not my usual kind of music. I mostly prefer them with lyrics, but this sounded good. But kind of felt like I have heard it somewhere.
I would never associate Shakthisree Gopalan’s voice for Nayanthara !!! I am having trouble imagining it, but let us see how it comes out in screen. This song ‘Angnyaade’ is nice and can come to a repeat performance in my playlist 🙂
‘Chillena’: I felt like this was again heard somewhere (felt like some Bollywood remake)
‘Imaye Imaye’: Felt like two male voices were singing. But passes muster. Sort of a proposal song.
‘Oday Oday’ , ‘Unnale’ & ‘Hey Baby’: Rejected
Score for this is 2.5/7. Hope I like some songs when I see with in the movie and I am planning to watch this movie once it is out. Here is the trailer.
Looks like a typical Venkat Prabhu movie and the songs also suggest the same. I hope he doesn’t repeat GOA or Saroja here. No points for guessing who is the music director. Looks like Yuvan is losing his touch. All songs felt like I had heard it before in some of Venkat Prabhu’s movies. That is sad.
But of course, he will get a song or two to the top 5 without fail and if my guess is right, this time it will be Nah Nah Nah Naaaa. And it has the touch of Mr Vaali. That guy always wrote lyrics which were way too young for his age :). There are two remix versions of the same song in the album. Really ? Is that necessary ?
I like the starting music (is that flute?) of Biriyani theme song, sung by Tanvi. It has the mix of Tamil and English words to give the funky appeal. Its not great but I might end up hearing it more than once.
The rest of the songs , didn’t register much for me.
Pom Pom Penne – when I heard it, the last song from the movie Chicago came into my mind. I wonder why.
