Music Review(Tamil): Yatchan

Music Review(Tamil): Yatchan
Music Composer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

       Parapara is templatized opening number and Yuvan takes the tried and tested tune by himself umpteen number of times. However Vijay Yesudas and Ranjith's energetic rendition spruce up the song and makes this track enjoyable while Yuvan's quirky nadhaswaram bits and hip hop elements in the interludes is the highlight in the percussion driven orchestration. Konjalaai starts off like a relaxing melody with cool piano sounds but slowly as song progresses, arrangements too shift between synthesized sounds and Yuvan ends the soundtrack with fancy upbeat trance section. Yuvan pulls off the singing part also quite effectually along with Tanvi Shah although processing in Yuvan vocals irks to some extent in an otherwise pleasant track. KaakaPonnu is foot tapping eclectic mix where trendy addictive synthesized beats meets local kuthu drums. Yuvan's choices of singers with Anthony dasaan, Priyadarshini and Yuvan Shankar Raja behind the mic to deliver in their respective vocal ranges which complements well the arrangements. Apart from other assorted sounds, Yuvan's cool guitar riffs in the interlude is the highlight.

         Innum Enna's pièce de résistance is the orchestration which is done quiet beautifully especially prelude with generous Jazz elements like live drums, piano base and lovely violin interspersed throughout the song. Yuvan aces the singing part while song's short duration being the minor grouse in an otherwise lovely composition. Yuvan's association with Rabbit Mac and Sheezay from psycho unit always results in energetic party track champion, which is bound to scorch the dance floors. Rap portions by the singers are highly addictive and cool which is sure to appease the fans of this genre.

Verdict: Yuvan- Vishnuvardhan combo delivers another engaging and delightful mix of songs to please the listeners in Yuvan's style. Yuvan finally delivers enjoyable commercial album after a long time.

My rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Konjalaai, Innum Enna, Kaakaponnu
