Music Review (Tamil): Zero

Music Review (Tamil): Zero
Music Composer: Nivas K Prasanna


Uyire Un Uyirena, enchanting beautiful melody embellished by simple ear pleasing arrangements with Navin Iyer's flute and Ragavendra Rao's Violin steals the show in this lovely opening feel good melody number from composer. It's refreshing to listen Anirudh's vocals in the melody after string of madras kuthu songs by him. Kabilan- Nivas duo after Vinmeen Vithayil delivers winner in this album also.Engae Ponai, another laid back melody dominated by minimalistic orchestration with keys and  Keba Jeremiah's charming guitar strums especially loved the classical twist with guitar in the first interlude. Vijay Prakash and Neeti Mohan own this tuneful track with their mesmerizing rendition which takes time to grow on the listeners.

Veredhuvum Nijame Illai another exquisite melody from Nivas rides mainly on the wonderful rendition by Haricharan and he sweeps the listeners with his vocal range. Nivas equally delivers in arrangements front also with elegant score dominated by light drums, piano and mesmerising flute sections. Madhan Karky's poetic lyrics adds further beauty to the track.You are in my heart, out and out English number with classy score from Nivas and Natalie Di Luccio's splendid operatic rendition gives the international feel to this track. Natalia once again steals the show with her singing after Aila Aila number in I especially arousing operatic singing towards the end accompanied by drums and blissful string sections.Nivas ends the highly melodious soundtrack with comparatively fast paced number in the album Indha Kaadhal Illaiyel while the composer still maintains the melody quotient intact without compromising the fine balance between techno sound and vocals. Overall fitting engaging finish to the highly tuneful album from Nivas K Prasanna.

Verdict: Nivas K prasanna, after slight hiccup in Sethupathi, delivers highly tuneful classy elegant soundtrack which surely captivates the target audiences. Once again Nivas proves that he is one of the promising young music composer in tinsel Tamil music industry.

My rating: 9/10
