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.
- Vaigai Siricha Thoonganagaram – A typical gana/kuththu track, works mainly for the powerful voice of Palghat Sriram.
- Koorana Parvaigal – Just passable as a melody, but the underlying beat is too distracting for the tune.
- 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 .
- Ettu Kangalukkum – Catchy lyrics and distinct voice of Madhu Balakrishnan makes this typical upbeat friendship anthem different.
- 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.
