Kunguma Poovum Konjum Puravum - Music Review

Kunguma Poovum Konjum Puravum is the second challenging album (after Paruthiveeran) for Yuvan Shankar Raja to showcase his ability in composing tunes that give a complete rural feel.

"Kadaloram" with SP Charan's vocals and "Chinna Sirisu" with Javed Ali and Bela Shinde vocals are simply soothing melodies with beautiful lyrics and matured orchestration. The orchestration in the former does remind you of Paruthiveraan music at times. However, tune is genuine and the vocals very clearly reflect the character of the songs. Good choice of singers.

"Oru Nimisham", an oppaari song sung by Velmurugan is a disturbing number. A special mention to the lyrics that convey the pain of the male being left alone by his girl.

The second version of "Kadaloram" with Yuvan's vocals is a number to be avoided mainly for the irritating vocals.

In the Kuthu (or Koothu song) song "Muthathu Pakkathil", Yuvan uses his father's "Nandhavanathil oru Rajakumari" tune. The last song "Nan Dharmanda" is a noisy kuthu song that fails to impress despite SPB's energetic vocals. The tune, orchestration, instrument arrangement are something which we have heard so-so-so many times.

Well, to conclude, KPKP is no Paruthiveeran, but a good album overall. A decent attempt that gives the rural feel but, only partly.

Kunguma Poovum komjum Puravum - Kuthu Paattum, Konjum Melody-yum.
