[Tweet-size-Thoughts] Thoonga Nagaram – Music (Tamil-OST-2011)

Thoonga Nagaram Movie Poster

Thoonga Nagaram is an upcoming Tamil film, with a gangster theme based in Madurai which has been over exploited in many recent films. This is my short thoughts on the soundtrack album by Sundar C. Babu.

  1. Vaigai Siricha Thoonganagaram – A typical gana/kuththu track, works mainly for the powerful voice of Palghat Sriram.
  2. Koorana Parvaigal – Just passable as a melody, but the underlying beat is too distracting for the tune.
  3. Kalyanam Kalyanam (Remix) – An interesting and cleaver remix, that builds upon the original verse by Chandrababu non-destructively. This could become the next ‘standard song’ for Tamil weddings .
  4. Ettu Kangalukkum – Catchy lyrics and distinct voice of Madhu Balakrishnan makes this typical upbeat friendship anthem different.
  5. Nee Siricha Kondattam – Anther typical gana/kuththu song. Reminds songs from the 1990s.

Overall, it’s a fairly OK soundtrack with some nativity in Sundar C. Babu style.

[Tweet-size Thoughts] Ko – Music (Tamil-OST-2011)

Ko (2011)

Ko is an upcoming Tamil film directed by K. V. Anand. This is my short thoughts after the first listen of the soundtrack by Harris Jayaraj.

  1. Ennamo Yeadho – A lovely tune with a fine flowing rap interlude. Interesting Madhan Karky lyrics. The hummable ‘Yeno kuviamilla’ phrase is going to stay for long. Sure to loop a lot in my player.
  2. Gala Gala – An ordinary sounding song, except for Sayanora Philip‘s voice and the starting MIAish Gala Gala chorus.
  3. Venpaniye – A typical Harris Jayaraj song, that sounds a lot like some of his previous songs with Bombay Jayashree.
  4. Aga Naga – Is it meant to be funny, at least Emcee Jesz‘s Tamil is funny. Sounds a lot like ‘a lot’, and too much is sometimes ‘too much’. It would be hard to give a genre to this.
  5. Netri Pottil – A nice short listen, with some not-so-filmy lyrics. Best next to Ennamo Yeadho in this album.
  6. Amali Thumali – An old school peppy tune, in a slightly new glass.

Overall the album, if not for Ennamo Yeadho, is just about/above average.
