Harris Jeyaraj entered from the TFM as a bolt from the
blue. His "vaseegara" still reverberates in the ears of all
classes and agegroups. The successful team comprising director
Gowtham, Lyricist Thamarai and Harris are striking back in "Kaaka
Kaaka". It is a Surya, Jothika starrer produced by Kalaipuli
Dhaanu. Though Harris had to struggle to compose village based
songs, here being his cup of tea, has come out with some racy
and infectious compositions..
The album begins with "Uyirin uyire" which starts off
with Suchitra's humming ( Umhah zeeya wahiyala wahiyala
zeena neva sayeya- Try finding the meaning). As the humming
fades, KK takes off with his enchanting voice. If sung in a
slow tempo, this resembles the beginning lines of "Annamalai"
TV serial's title song which is also sung by KK. The song slowly
grows in the listener and though we can find traces of Minnale
song, it is surely encaptivating.
ooril"starts with some english lyrics sung by Febimani
and Karthik takes over. This song is in a narrative style
about the beauty of a girl. Thamarai's lyrics are set in her
style, simple and cool. After many listenings only, this song
sets a mark. Don't jump into any conclusions after initial hearings.
"Thoodhu varumaa" by Sunitha sarathy and Febimani is
a MTV style song picturised that way with Ramyakrishnan wriggling
with a microphone. Both the voices are drippingly sweet and
sensuous coherent with the mood of the song..
"Ennai konjam" by Tippu and Shalini Ssingh is
a peppy and toe tapping duet. Timmy's rap interlude and
parallel track singing adds to the feel of the song. On initial
hearings the song is just passable, but after subsequent hearings
it is compulsorily addictive.
Overall it is a breathtaking effort by Harris Jeyaraj. Hats
off to Thamari and Gowtham. The lyrics are decent and not suppressed
by the dominating music. Harris as usual has concentrated much
in the interludes which are pretty enjoyable as the songs are.
rendaa" song is going to be a regular entity in the satellite
channel top ten shows for quite some time. Already this album
is the topper in sales and is worth grabbing a copy.
