Sakkarakatti - Music Review

After a long wait, the Sakkarakatti songs are out.
The first half of 2008 did not have even one extraordinary album. In seventh month, Sakkarakatti turns out to be a great album with four amazing songs and two ordinary songs. Yes, the wait doesn’t disappoint.

Taxi Taxi – Blaze, Benny Dayal, Javed Ali
A peppy friendship song. When there is ARR, there is no dearth for innovation. Blaze at his best once again with English lyrics. This is surely going to be a chartbuster. The predominant beats in the background are truly catchy and add a special touch to the song.

Marudaani – Madhushree, A R Rahman
A soothing melody number with fantastic interludes. There is a good improvement in Madhushree’s diction. Her vocals add good charm to the song. The first interlude is truly mesmerizing. This is another best track in the album. A feminine song which will surely enthrall girls.

Chinnamma – Benny Dayal, Chinmayi
This folk song is the Tamil version of Meenaxi – Chinnamma track. I am a very big fan of the Hindi version. I am still listening to the Hindi version. But Tamil version somewhere fails to recreate the magic. If you haven’t heard the Hindi version, chances are there you will like this one very much.

Naan Epoudhu – Reena Bharadwaj
Another melody song in the album with neat orchestration. The water splash sound in the first interlude is enjoyable. Reena’s rendition is Ok.

Elay – Krish, Naresh Iyer
A run-of-the-mill tune but with an astonishing orchestration. The solo violin that comes in between and the guitar that is being played throughout the song are truly mind-blowing. Worth listening.

I Miss You Da – Chinmayi, Indai Haza
Despite Chinmay’s attractive vocals and powerful orchestration, the song fails to impress you due to an average tune.
Verdict of Vinith!

With four top numbers and two average songs, Sakkarakatti is the best album of the year 2008 (so far). Kudos to ARR!!!

Best album of the year (SO FAR :) )
No other album including HJ's DD had uniqueness and fresh music. I gues we have it in SK. :)

Satyam and Saroja are on their way :)

Suresh kumar, vinith, I bet definitely its going to be best of 2008.. am not making an argue with you... but the beats on "nan epothu", tune of "maruthani", peps in "taxi taxi" gives me a confidence.. to write this comment i had listen to those 3 songs almost more than 100 times.

As vinith said possible are there to "saroja" could beat "sakkarakatti".. I personaly think .. now way.. coz through ARR Tune,Musics I can picture in my mind ,what the poet trying say.

Althogh saroja making decent tunes but I can feel the ARR Maturity and Clean is missing.

"Nothing to hurt anyone it was my personal opinion."

Hi Anon,

I dont want to use the word RIP here as this may sound too harsh. The right word i can use here is "Inspiration".

Starting from the female humming, the rhythm and the beats sound very similar!!! ARR has beautifully transformed it to a fresh tune!!!

just to add on this topic, the beat belongs to a genre and has to be used if the song demands so

listen to this

Vidhyasagar is the MD done in the year 1996.

Do you say daddy whatever copied the beats from V.Sagar!

The humming,rap and the tune is totally different. May be the tone is similar initially in the song

ITs the genre mate
