The music of PITHAMAGAN (Dir: Bala, Music: Ilaiyaraja) is the most awaited one this year. But the outcome is not the one which many might expect. This might be due to the fact that quantity is less, I mean there r only 2 effective songs. Let me go into the details……… 1. Piraiye….Its a trademark melodious no. of Ilaiyaraja, sung by Madhu Balakrishnan with Vaalee lyrics. The voice has a very soothing effect which is very necessary for the song. 2. Elangaathu….This is romantic piece probably for Surya and Laila. Voice of Sriram Parthasarathy and Shreya Ghosyal blend very well for Pazhanibharathi lyrics. 3. Adadaa….When I bought the audio I felt that this is going to be the song of the year, since it has the magical combo of K.J.Yesudas and Ilaiyaraja but it’s a song very much similar they did in the film ‘Desiyageetham’. But otherwise it’s a good song with lot of angry emotions with powerful lyrics of MU.Metha. 4. Aruna Runam….This is a medley of very old tamil songs. It seems to be picturised on Simran. 5. Kodi yethi….Its a devotional song of folk nature with lots of singers. It has interlude of romantic lines by Bhavatharani ….but it sounds somewhat similar to a song in ‘Manasellam’. Lyrics – NA.Muthukumar. The audio is released by “Fivestar audio” the quality of the recording is just fine. The cassette and CD cover comes in 2 designs not much impressive. On hearing the songs its very clear Bala has not compromised much to fit songs here and there unnecessarily. So whatever is there have to go hand in hand with the proceeding of the film. So if one is a hardcore fan of Ilaiyaraja it’s worth buying. JAY JAY (Dir: Saran, Music: Bharadwaj)……It has totally 6 songs. All of them are catchy and peppy. All songs have beautiful variety of instruments. There is a song which is typical of a rock song. There is a so called item no. picturised on reema sen. except the lyrics (Vairamuthu) which is just ok the album on the whole is of chartbuster variety. So Maddy is again lucky to have hit nos. again. THIRUMALAI (Dir:Raamana, Music: Vidyasagar)…..All the 5 songs are for masses similar to the songs of Dhool. There is item no. which has combo of Vijay and kiran. But the song ‘thamthaka..’is the best, the song is picturised on Vijay and Lawrence….their dance steps for the song shown in the trailer is the best seen in recent times. It’s the picturisation and the choreography which is going to complement the songs.
