Yuvan's "7/G Rainbow colony"
album received raving reviews for his wonderful compositions
. His next album "Manmadhan" though was not in the league
of 7/G, had some innovative,bold experiments by him. BOSE
is his recent audio release and let's see whether it's a
hatrick from him.................
Nijamaa (7/10) - A haunting melody number soul stirringly
rendered by KK and Shreya Goshal. Though the tune is catchy,
it is so predictable that even on first hearing, one can
predict the flow of tune. Na.Muthukumar's lyrics have some
repetitive lines used in previous movies. Electronically
modified humming in the first interlude is a good innovative
effort and this song is the pick of the album.
Vaitha kan(7/10) - Bharadwaj lifted a particular
beat from an Indipop and used in JayJay's "Maymaasam" song,
which is again recycled here by Yuvan. Other than that,
the tune is very attractive and addictive. MadhuBalakrishnan
and Sri Vardhini have lent their voices in charanam sections
while chorus in pallavi. Pa. Vijay has come out with commendable
Dolly dolly (5/10) - As usual , a heroine introduction
song. It begins with a decent opening bit but fades off
as a run of the mill song. Thamarai's lyrics have some feministic
and confidence building lines. Pop Shalini's voice doesn't
suit the energy and feel,this song is supposed to have.
Enna aachu (6.5/10) - Yuvan has experimented in this
song and has succeeded to an extent. Sorepoint in this song
is the lyrics by Pa.Vijay, which is more like a conversation
than like a poetic lyric. Set in a catchy, toe tapping rhythm,and
in Mathangi and Devan's enthu voice, this will hit the charts
if picturised creatively.
Bommalaattam (6/10) - Karthik and Chitra Sivaraman
have done a decent job in elevating the mood of the song.
The tune and the beats, though reminds us of old Ilaiyaraja's
dappaanguthu songs, is peppy and gets into the listener
soon. The rhythm and pace of the song is sure to make the
front benchers shake their legs.
Yuvan is again repeating the same mistake he did in the
year 2002-2003, signing too many films and not maintaining
the quality of songs. Instead he should do only selective
movies and concentrate into each and every aspect of the
song and we often find the choice of singers not apt in
his music. It's not at all fair to come out with great songs
only for Selvaragavan's movies and average songs for others'
movies. BOSE is an ordinary album with not-much-to-tell
kind of songs for a commercial movie.
