Allegra - Indhiya ponnu thaango !!

The most speculative song shot for the film indeed. The song has been tuned with the Arabic style and the singer’s voice is mind-bogglingly sensuous. Rita had sung extremely well… She has sung in most of devi Prasad films in telugu. For me ,an impulsive thought again, tried to attempt that Arabic style…:D

Anubavam puthumai...

An awesome duet from kadhalika neram illai… we all know how awesomely hilarious this movie was. I can still watch the nagesh-balaiya comedy scene and laugh my guts out… we can never forget the “oh ho productions” and “there you are!”

All the songs from this movie were good… but this one is such a dreamy, slow melodious number that it makes you feel you can never hear such good singers anymore. Read somewhere MSV inspired by the old Mexican song…Was astonished to knew these info..!

No introduction needed for Kaushick (Kshanks), Already we both did a song muthumani maalai and he always do songs in one shot and with his ordinary recording set up..

I am really afraid of doing suseela’s number ..Almost blinking how to reach out the sweetness of her voice ! Somehow managed…and as usual Kaushik had done a excellent job..

Thuli Thuli Thuli Mazhayai......

A soft romantic solo with pleasant string accompaniment and sharp rhythms. Haricharan’s rendering is clean and crisp. Tanvi is content with background humming. The second interlude without rhythms is soothing, could make a mark with smooth visuals. Loved Haricharan’s vibrotos and he could be called as sonu nigam of south…Just tried those vibrotos ….:D …A Lovey tune from yuvan ( might be… Suttatho…:P)

Somewhere listened to this tune…Reminding some western tune… Too much craze to sing this number…Male singers pardon me :D

Oru deivam thantha poove...

Rahman always tries different sounds in melodies too. In this song, there is no typical usage of flute, guitar, veena, and grand violin orchestration in the interludes, which has become the inevitable instruments to be used in any melody. With a single keyboard and mild pad beats he has given a haunting melody. The basic keyboard rhythm floating in the background is something never heard before and it is captivating. This is how he creates a new sound by programming new patterns and loops in the keyboard. The mild pad beat that plays when all the layers fade in and fade out at the beginning and at the end is same as the rhythmic bell sound that we heard in “Bombay theme”. Apart from all these I feel the hidden soul of the song is mild violin orchestration that plays in the background all through the song, which emotes the situation well. The way the chorus chant of the title “Kaanathil muthamittal” in which there is a strange twist in the note in between the word “Muthamittal” is excellent and typical Rahman way of composition.

Chinmayee with a strong formal education in hindustani music has extremely sung well a tough song with elegance. She sounds as soothing as a flute sound. She excels in giving different expressive notes to the word “Nee” wherever the line ends with the word “Nee”. Her solo alap in the middle is very difficult to reproduce for a lay and the note of this bit is awesome. On the other side, Jayachandran’s golden voice is refreshing. He has sung this song effortlessly and the shift in pitch of the voice in each and every line is spontaneous without compromising the expressions in the voice.

The situation is like parents consoling their adopted child as is restless on hearing shocking news that she is an adopted child and they are not her genetic ancestors. The lyrics are like a sweet lullaby. Like in Tamil, parents will please the kids by saying like “en chellam dee ne, en thangam dee nee, en vairam dee nee”, in the similar way Vairamuthu has written some thoughtful lyrics with each and every line contradicting the previous line.

Overall a Soulful melody with a new sound.
