Siva Manasula Sakthi (SMS) Music Review

Jeeva-Yuvan, the combo which has delivered two mind-blowing albums Raam and Katradhu Thamizh is back with Siva Manasula Sakthi a.k.a SMS.

The fast paced, peppy number "MGR Illeenga" is instantly likable with catchy lyrics even though there is no fresh idea in orchestration. A passable track. "Oru Adangapidari" sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Swetha fails to impress despite the catchy flute interludes. Third song, "Eppadio Maatikitten" sung by Clinton and Nruthya has very good orchestration and nice interludes. But the tune is really boring and so are the lyrics.

Aah... Two songs of the first three songs are average. Doesn't that set the tone for the rest of the album? Let us see...

Fourth song is the highlight of the album. "Oru Kal, Oru Kannadi" sung by Yuvan himself. A hio-hop melody. Lovely lyrics by Na. Muthukumar, impeccable arrangement of music, excellent interludes join hands with not-bad vocals of Yuvan Shankar Raja. And the result? A beautiful melody is ready. Best song of the album.

"Thithikkum Theeye" sung by KK and Swetha is another passable track. The orchestration certainly reminds you of "Endha Kudhirayil" song of Satham Podathe. Not only the orchestration, even the small musical phrase sung by Swetha that comes in between the song, matches with "Praana Naadha" lines of Satham Podathe song.

The second version of "Oru Kal, Oru Kannadi" is a complete disaster coz of Adnan Samy's vocals.

Wow... Beautiful Keyboard and Violin combination makes the short melody "Oru Paarvayil" delightful. I wish this could have been a full song.

Yuvan's orchestrating ability sparkles in four songs. But what is the use when the main melody/tune is not appealing? Yuvan miserably fails here.

To write the verdict in SMS format,
An avg album frm d gr8 combo, Yvn-Jva. SMS s nt as gd as Raam/KT. Btr luck nx time. Tc.

Regards,
Vini...

Thanks Achilles.

It's been months since I watched movie. Varanam aayiram was the last movie I saw. Din't watch any movie after that. Missed Abhiyum Naanum, Poo etc. I may watch Nan Kadavul next week. :)
