Music Review (Tamil): Vellai Kara Durai

Music Review (Tamil): Vellai Kara Durai
Music Composer : D Imman

Ammadi Un Azhaghu, pleasant tune sung with earnest effort by Sathya prakash nevertheless orchestration has deja vu flavours from Imman's previous works. Kaakaa Muttai, folk track and Imman uses the instruments associated with that genre. Despite Vaikom Vijayalakshmi's spirited rendition, tune is not catchy enough to clasp the listeners till the end. Imman brings stellar singers Haricharan and Shreya Ghoshal for the melody called Koodha Kaathu and they are splendid with the vocals. Imman's orchestration and interludes appeals most in an otherwise humdrum tune. Album ends with another ordinary track Nadigar Thilagam in Krishnamoorthy's vocals except for some interesting brass section in the interludes. Brass Band by Maxwell is enticing compared to the other songs in the soundtrack.

Verdict: Imman's Vellaikara Durai seems to be perfunctory soundtrack wrapped up very quickly without any composer's fine touch.

My rating:6.5/10

Pick of the Album:  Ammadi Un Azhaghu, Koodha kaathu, Brass band
