Music Review (Tamil): Isai

Music Review (Tamil): Isai
Music Composer: S J Suryah

Puthandin, starts with thumping beats and energetic guitar but as the song progresses, it becomes more tedious listen because of S J Surya's vocals and also middling tune without any imagination. Atho Vanile Nila is a passable listen with simple tune prodded by Chinmayi and Karthik's reliable vocals. A cameo by Deva is a pleasant surprise and gives much digression in an otherwise monotonous tune. Dirty Dancing, techno kuthu song in Shalini singh vocals is another mediocre song with repugnant lyrics which can be avoided. The best of the album is  Isai Veesi, a hummable melody garnished with watery sounds in Chinmayi's mesmerizing vocals. Nee Poiyaa, by VijayYesudas is a pathos number has tune which is interesting only in parts but listenable only because of earnest rendition by Yesudas. Among the three themes, She is his piano theme appeals most despite sincere controlled rendition by Chinmayi in all the themes.

Verdict: Isai is an unimpressive debut as a music director for S J Surya.

My Rating: 6.5/10

Pick of the album: Isai Veesi, Nee Poiyaa, She is his piano theme
