Music Review: Kandhaswamy

Kandhasamy is one of the much awaited movies of the year and so is its music. The album has eight tracks in total out of which only two of them are good (not outstanding :P ).

"Excuse Me Mr. Kandhasamy", sung by Suchithra and Vikram is very catchy, mainly for the funny lines and Vikram's rendition. This song is more like a conversation. "Allegra" is more like an English song which is good in terms of music.

"Miya miya poona" is more like rhymes while "idhellm dupe" is nothing but recitation of a written essay. "India ponnu", "Pambara kannale remix (aka en peru meenakumari)", "Mambo Mamiya", "Kantha Kanthasamy" are plain annoying.

I may sound a bit harsh. But then, I wish to share what I feel. Devi Sri Prasad has always been a wrong choice for Tamil Film Music. I loved hardly a few compositions of him in Tamil. Kanthasamy is just another album in that list.

Regards,
Vinith...

Arun said...

poor album...his only best album till date in tamil is santhosh subramaniam..kanthaswamy is trash.

Vinith said...

Arun, yeah, heard that Allegra is inspired from Shakira number. Yeah, trash album.

santhu said...

Well said. Just one or two songs are good. Rest is all noisy !!

santhu said...

What's your take on Valmiki?? I have not heard any melodies like these. Raaja is terrific. Songs can't be better than this!!!

Vinith said...

Hey Santhu,

Yeah. I'm yet to listen to the songs of Valmiki and also Yuvan's Telugu Oy! Both are good i heard.

Will write in three or four days of time.

Arun said...

oye is fantastic..will be a big musical hit in tollywood. Valmiki sounds like 90's illayaraja music. melodious but isn't that great.

Vinith said...

Arun,

Yes. Oy music is really great. Just once I listened to Valmiki, though good, did not appeal to me much. Will give it a full listen soon.
