Music Review (Tamil): Eetti

Music Review (Tamil): Eetti
Music Composer: G V Prakash Kumar

             In Panjumittai, GV Prakash created the enticing aura with his arrangements which feature lovely use of flute, nadhaswaram and percussions. The chorus portions and Hariharasudhan's energetic vocals along with arrangements mitigates the heard before feel of the tune very much. Overall fair enough start to the album from the composer. Un Swasam starts like an unplugged song with piano, but the real highlight is progressing string sections and guitar strums. Tune is easily cakewalk for GV Prakash and he is fabulous with his rendition of with the songs of this genre. The rap portions by Mc Vickey and Maya is typical one and didn't deter much the proceeds of the song. 

           Shakthishree Gopalan and GV Prakash comes together to croon the enjoyable folksy duet Naan Pudicha Mosakuttiyae where once again arrangements score much more than the tune. Singers are spot on with their rendition especially Shakthishree and GV Prakash throws some brilliant use of harmonium, Thavil, nadhaswaram and enjoyable second interlude. GV Prakash ropes Siddharth Mahadevan for the feisty rock song Oru Thuli which features lyrics more in tandem with the core theme of the movie. Siddharth Mahadevan handles the song of these type lot in Bollywood and here also he aces the song with ease. However, the tune and arrangements turn out to be too cliched and conventional despite singer maintains the tempo with his sprightly rendition. Kuiyyo Muiyyo is quite a quirky and funky number which features a hummable tune along with likeable electronic sequencing sounds created by GV Prakash. KG Ranjith and Vandana Srinivasan rendered the peppy tune in an engaging manner and the composer adorned the song with lovely harmonica throughout the song. GV Prakash composed partially effective Life of faith theme instrumental which differs compared to his earlier theme compositions.The theme song is laden with a lot of electronic sequencing sounds which carries the mood of the movie very well.

Verdict: GV Prakash delivers partially engaging album with interesting orchestration, but some songs lack instant catchy tune to make the songs chartbuster.

My rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Kuiyyo Muiyyo, Panjumittai, Un Swasam
