MUSIC : HARRIS JEYARAJ
LYRICS: THAAMARAI , Na. MUTHUKUMAR
Harris is back after a low profile Sathyam and how???. You will soon find out after hearing his mesmerizing tunes of Vaaranam Aayiram. This album is by far the best album in Harris’s career and the deadly trio of Gautham-Surya-Harris are back in superb style to haunt you forever. Lets get rollin.
Adiyae Kolluthey (Krishh,Benny Dayal,Shruthi Haasan)
A song that was a hit even before its actual release. Leaked through the internet this song is rising steadily up the charts after its release. This guitar based song sticks to your heart mainly due to its cool renditions by Krishh (June Ponal) and Shruthi Hassan (Daughter of Kamal Hassan). Shruthi’s voice is a bit rustic and fits in the mood of the song perfectly. Already a hit among the masses.
Nenjukkul Peithidum (Hariharan,Deven,V.Prasanna)
Harris proves his like for melody with this song. Starting with a guitaric prelude the song is totally guitar based combined with some wonderful singing by Hariharan and the other vocalists. A love anthem nonetheless. A song that will stay long in your hearts even after you hear it. The lyrics of the song deserves special praise for its feel.
Annul Malae (Sudha Raghunadhan)
One of the best songs i have ever heard. A feel good Carnatic classical song with excellent vocals from Sudha Raghunathan who gives the song a new lease of life with her voice. A special hats off for this song and its lyrics.
Mundhinam (Naresh Iyer,Prashantini)
Yet another melody from the master. Yet another guitar based song with mesmerizing vocals from Naresh Iyer. The song is given the perfect fell with the mix of instruments in its music and the drugging voice of Prashanthini. Yet another chartbuster.
Ava Enna (Karthik)
A pleasant surprise is in store for all u freaking Gautham fans. This song is a “Gaana” type song and it is in a Gautham Menon movie. I’ll give harris full marks for this song. Karhik is so good always that this song is a walk in the park for him when it comes to rendering his vocals. Gadam and other hand instruments form the basic music instrumentation with the dandiya like stick beats. Good Folk number.
Oh! Shanthi Shanthi (S.P.B.Charan,Clinton)
Another Oh! shanthi but with slightly different scales and lyrics. My personal favorite. A superb song with good vocal support from Charan and Clinton. The guitar prelude and during the Oh! shanthi chant are totally awesome.
Yethi Yethi (Benny Dayal,Naresh Iyer,Solar Sai)
A superb hip hop style number. Benny Dayal is going places with his voices for sure and thats purely isible in his feel and rendition. Naresh and Solar Sai provide perfect foil. A youth based song and the lyrics just reflects that. Yet another personal favourite.
Rajster’s Top 3 of the Album:
- Adiyae Kolluthey.
- Nenjukkul Peithidum.
- Annul Malae.
P.S: It was really difficult for me to choose just 3 songs as the best. All the songs are equally good.
A really chart topping album from Harris after a lame Sathyam. The songs are there to make an impact and if the visuals are half as good as the songs are then we have yet another blockbuster in our hands. It’s an album for all ages and a definite don’t miss. Harris is the master of melody and has proved his mettle bigtime.
