Aayirathil Oruvan - Music Review

Music of "Aayirathil Oruvan", one of the much awaited movies of the year is out and is outstanding. Young composer GVP's compositions in Ayirathil Oruvan is extraordinary. With 10 tracks (including one club mix), the album is definitely a treat to music lovers.

Both the versions of "Thaai thindra Manne" stand out. GV Prakash's knowledge in classical music comes to fore in these songs. Extraordinary compositions with mindblowing lyrics by Vairamuthu. One version is sung by Vijay Yesudoss and the other version is by Vijay Yesudoss and Nithyashree. Singers have added a speacial touch to these songs. Words fail me to describe the pleasure of listening to these songs.

Another such a master piece is "Pemmane" which is absolutely haunting with amazing vocals by Bombay Jayashree and Veteran PB Srinivas. This song gives a mysterious feel especially the laughing sounds of female in the interludes. I got carried away.

You should not just listen to these songs. Experience them. Lyrics of these three songs simply took me to Chola Period. I'm presenting parts of "Pemmaane" lyrics here.

வாழ்ந்தாலும்,
சந்ததிகள் வீழ்ந்தாலும்,
தாய் மண்ணில் சாகாமல்,
சாகமாட்டோம்......
--
புலம் பெயர்ந்தோம்...
பொலிவிழந்து புலன் கழிந்தோம்...
அழுதழுது உயிர் கிழிந்தோம்...
--
என் தஞ்சை,
யாம் பிறந்த பொன் தஞ்சை,
விரல் ஐந்தும் தீண்டாமல்,
வேக மாட்டோம்....


These lines brought tears in my eyes.
Hats off to Vairamuthu.

Selva Raghavan's lyrics in the breezy, romantic number "Maalai Neram" outstands. Andrea's rendition fits the mood (just bear her diction in few places). I loved this song mainly for its lyrics.

ஓடும் காலங்கள்,
உடன் ஓடும் நினைவுகள்,
வழி மாறும் பயணங்கள்,
தொடர்கிறதே....
--
உன் கரம் கோர்க்கையில்,
நினைவு ஓராயிரம்,
இரு கரம் பிரிகையில்,
நினைவு நூறாயிரம்

"Indha Paadhai", sung by composer himself is astonishing with amazing guitar works. GVP does a pretty neat job in singing too. Do not miss the violin that comes for a short duration in the second interlue. Amazing composition.

Theme music kinda stuffs "King Arrives" and "Celebration of Life" are truly master piece from GVP. Wonderful.

The club number "Oh Eesa" starts off well but soon turns out to be noisy. Composer's idea of mixing the tune of "Srinivasa Govinda, Sri venkatesa Govinda" doesn't really sound good. And the hip hop type "Un Mela aasathan is "adada va asathalam" song of Sarvam (which was originally composed by Yuvan for Selvah).

This is certainly one of the BEST ALBUMS in recent years. Stunning from this young chap. GV Prakash, you've made it man. Bow. Kudos to the team. Credits to Selva for extracting the best out of GVP. Eagerly awaiting the movie release. Just cannot wait for it.

Regards,
Vinith...

Lol... Yeah... I was disappointed with Pudhupettai even though it was good in parts. I liked it. But then it did not live upto the expectations.

Hmmm. Let's see what Selva has to offer... At least for the music, i would be watching it in theaters.
