Music Review (Tamil) : Tamizhpadam 2

Music Review (Tamil) : Tamizhpadam 2
Music Composer: N Kannan


CS Amudhan and Chandru's lyrics in Naan Yaarumila screams the movie's tone akin to Keba Jeremiah's screeching guitar riffs. The strength of the song lies in the amusing satirical lyrics and the song is sure to stick to the listeners especially with the mass friendly Paruppu da, Varlaam Varlaam Vaa, to Big boss dialogues makes this one an amusing listen. Vaa Vaa Kaama works mostly for the sensual rendition by Ujjayinee accompanied by wonderful flute and Harmonica solos by Kamalakar. One wishes that tune could have been much better but the singer makes up for the meandering tune. 

The soundtrack best is Kalavarame, wonderful innovative composition by Kannan where Chinmayi's tongue rolling rendition especially she pulls off the gibberish lyrics with ease and makes one fall for it. Kannan's semi-classical arrangements backed by Rajesh's veena and Pradeep Kumar brings his own classical improvisations on the vocal front. Chennai Strings orchestra displayed their prowess effectually in the interludes. Kannan brings together Sharreth and Vijay Prakash and it's delight to listen Sharreth after Thaarai Thappattai. The proficient singers nail the rendition with ease, though the tune is less appealing, the vocals and the arrangements make this semi-classical song an enjoyable listen. Kannan gives the soup girls song Evada Unna Petha and CS Amudhan makes up for all the misogyny in Tamil albums and movies by his lyrics. But the song's tune is pretty flat and it is hardly interesting but lyrics makes this one an one time listen.

Chella Penney is the short breezy guitar-laden minimally arranged track sung well by Jithin and Sowmya. It's very difficult to contemplate Ulagam Athira Vaada as a serious track given the punchy orchestration in the background and Manasi Mahadevan's energetic vocals but ends with Arohara Shiva. Phoenix Paravai is an another interestingly made song invoking KB Sundarambal's Pazhaniyaapa for Chandru's brilliant lyrics. In Aatharamaanai, Kannan effectually brings the Baahubali's Jeeva Nadhi with ample support from K Thilaka's vocals.

Verdict: Contrary to the expectations,N Kannan delivered the brilliant soundtrack for the spoof movie and the album is much better than it's prequel.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Kalavarame, Naan Yaarumilla, Phoenix Paravai
