Vijay Antony has always been surprising us with his quirky words songs and lilting melodies. He comes up with another melody filled album Iruvar Ullam. Let us see how the songs have shaped up.
1.Kannadi Silaiye-Santhosh Hariharan,Sangeetha Rajeshwaran
This track begins with a beautiful piano piece. Then, Santhosh takes over the song with elan. His voice suits best for such melody songs. Sangeetha croons her part very well. It is a simple melody and hooks on to you on the first listen. It is sure to be played in all radio stations especially for its catchy tune. Hummable and a typical Vijay Antony duet. Overall, a pleasant start to the album.
The number begins with a melancholic tone and forays into a pathos mood. The lyrics ooze with sadness all over. Haricharan is heard nowadays almost in every song. And of course, he is the only one who could have done justice to this song. He renders it with such an energy that you will feel attracted to this number. A love failure song that will be surely liked by those in heartbreak.
Starting with a strings prelude, this song moves on to ecstatic beats. It sounds more like a G.V.Prakash duet. But the track has its own moments. M.M.Manasi is the heroine of this song and her rendition is slick and stylish. Nivas complements her well in a husky tone. The beats take up speed before the second charanam and you will find yourself dancing to it. Though its not catchy, it can be considered a passable one.
4.Mazhaiye Mazhaiye-Andrea Jeremiah
This track is the highlight of the album. It is a westernized melody and it contains a lot of substance. Andrea Jeremiah takes the song to another world. You could play this song on repeat mode just to listen to her voice. With a catchy tune and wonderful beats, I am sure that this song would find a good place in the charts. Overall, a danceable number that will linger on your mind for a long time.
5.Aadum Nenje-Sunitha Sarathy
This is a typical club number with sensuos lyrics sans electro beats. The violin and the hard rock guitar preludes have to be mentioned specially. This track is a sort of comeback for Sunitha Sarathy who is well known for her stylish songs. The backup vocals are also good. Overall, its just like any other western song that Vijay Antony would compose.
Vijay Antony has come up with a neat album containing a mix of melody and western. Thank God, there is no quirky words song in this album !!!!!!!
