Seval – GV Prakash – Music Review

A standard album for Hari movies with three melodies, and three kuthu songs.

Odamarathu Mullapola – Benny Dayal
A typical folk song. Same old tune, lyrics, orchestration which almost every music director in TFM has tried. Doesn’t make an impact.

Thulasi Chediya – Hariharan, Deepa Mariam
The monotonous tune is the main minus point in Thulasi Chediya. A melody which fails to impress you despite the excellent orchestration. I loved the violin piece that comes in the middle. Another “Thaaliye Thevai illa” for singer Hariharan.

Thaayaramma Thaayaaru – Karthik, Vadivel
An inane kuthu song. Karthik has thoroughly enjoyed singing. Vadivel’s voice that comes intermittently is enjoyable.

Namma Ooru Nallaarukku – Anuradha, Tippu, Manickavinayagam
I was instantly impressed by this song mainly because of the beats and the way GVP has fused the tune of “Sandaiku poren, neenga saatchiku vanga” lines of 16-Vayadhinile song at the end of Saranam.

Kannamma Kannamma – Vijay Yesudas, Gayathri
A passable melody. Nothing so great in this song.

Paarvayile Oru Yaekkam – Naresh Iyer
Best song of this album. A beautiful melody with gentle beats and haunting flute interludes. Naresh Iyer outshines in singing once again.

Verdict of Vinith:
An album for B and C centers. Definitely not for A center crowd! We cannot blame GV Prakash for delivering a dud album as he has exactly what Hari wants from any composer. GVP should strictly avoid composing for this kind of movies as we have got Srikanth Deva and D. Imman who have been doing this for years!

Stars: 2 Stars
