Latest Music reviews

Music is one thing that keeps me happy most of the time. It relieves me from all the depression and worries that I have had to undergo at times. So, in the last few weeks, a bunch of good movies have released their audio. Having heard all the songs in these movies, in this post, I would like to do a review on which is the best musical movie according to me. The audio released for the movies Jeyam Kondaan, Sakkarakatti, Kuselan, Dhaam Dhoom and Saroja. My top 5 are in the following order :

No 5 -> Kuselan featuring Pasupathy, Meena, Rajnikanth and Nayanthara. Music is done by the young GV Prakash. This movie was initially slated to be a Pasupathy starrer and Rajni playing a cameo role. But, its now a Rajni starrer. But, sadly, the music of the movie doesn't impress much. The song Cinema Cinema by Shankar Mahadevan sounds good. Also on the melody side, Chaaral thooral by Shreya Goshal soothes our ears.

No 4 -> Jeyam Kondaan featuring Vinay, Bhavana and Lekha Washington. Music is being handled by Vidyasagar. Almost all the songs are melodies which suggest that this movie is an out and out musical movie. Adai Mazhai Kalam sung by Karthik, Adhai Koodava by Shreya Goshal and Ore Or naal by Benny Dhayal are some songs that impress me in this movie.

No 3 -> Saroja starring a part of the Chennai 28 team. The music is being handled by the inimitable Yuvan Shankar Raja who has been providing a youthful music for a long time now. The first song that comes to my mind is ITS MY LIFE sung by Tanvi. Its the first song with english lyrics from start to end. It rocks because of the voice which the girl renders. Then, I liked Dosth Bada Dosth sung by Haricharan, Naveen and Rahul Nambiar. Then, the other songs are also good to hear and although some of them may resemble the same genre, they are of course bearable to hear.

No 2 -> Sakkarakatti featuring Shanthanu, Ishitha and Vedika. Music is handled by the one and only King of Music AR Rahman. That is what makes the music special. All the songs carry the ARR magical touch in it. Although the songs aren't too overwhelming, in the songs released so far, this movie's songs sound better than others. That is what makes ARR so special. My favorite number from this movie is Taxi Taxi sung by the trio of Benny Dayal, Blaaze and Vivan Chaix. The songs sound western with pucca tamil lyrics and hence the song itself sounds westernized. My favorite melody from this song being Marudhaani sung by the latest sensation Madhushree whose voice resembles the sweet Sadhana Sargam. Also I miss you da comes in to my favorites list thanks to Chinmayi. This movie's songs may not be an out and out ARR feast. But, definitely, its an ARR mini tiffin. ;)

No 1 -> Dhaam Dhoom starring Jeyam Ravi and Kangana Ranaut. This one is a special one dedicated to the late director and cinematographer Jeeva. Harris Jeyaraj has given him the perfect homage by rendering one of his best music for this movie. As many as 5 songs impressed me in this movie. Starting with the melody. Sakiye by Bombay Jayashree, the rap genre Pudhu Pudhu sung by Suchitra and Benny Dayal, the male solo melodies Azhiyilae by Haricharan and Anbe En Anbe by Harish Raghavendra and finally the fast beat Thikku Thikku by Sayonara Philip and Benny Dayal, this movie's music is surely, according to me, the hit of the season.

Thanks for patiently reading my musical review. Pour in your positives and negatives on the post as well as your arguments about my ratings as comments.

P.S. A recently released music of the movie Sathyam is expected to be a total crap. Try it at your own risk.

harish said...

wat i say is, v don have the rights to rate any songs...It's a tough job to do that..just by hearing once we can't rate a song is good or bad..wait for the picture shot to come on the screen..then we may say the song is really good or not
