Dream Valley Corporation’s Aayirathil Oruvan, starring Karthi, Reema Sen, Andrea and Parthiban and directed by Selvaraghavan that has been in the making for nearly two years, is getting ready for release. The film’s story is kept under wraps and so and there is a lot of excitement surrounding the release. Parthiban is said to have played a historic war hero’s role. G.V. Prakash’s music is one of the chief highlights of the film. There are nearly ten songs and instrumental mixes in the album.
The album begins with the combination of celebrities singing in ‘Un Mela Aasadhan’. As we hear the launching lines, the excitement increases and continues till the end. Stylish and casual rendition by Andrea, Aishwarya Dhansuh and Dhanush marks the song. ‘The King arrives’ by Neil Mukherjee (Madras Augustin Choir) is an instrumental extravaganza. ‘Thaai Thindra Mannae’, the Cholan Ecstasy by Nithyashree Mahadevan, Vijay Yesudas and Sri Krishna, is an exciting combination of dialogues and exchanges in chaste Tamil followed by a slow-paced classical rendition. The song is repeated in Vijay’s voice. In that version also, the mood is sorrow, painful and very touching. ‘Malai Neram’ by G.V. Prakash and Andrea is a romantic number. Andrea’s voice has the extra magical feel in it and GVP’s addition accentuates it. ‘Intha Paadhai’, a solo by GVP, touches and warms listeners’ hearts. Both the tempo and rhythm are slow and soothing. GVP’s voice adds to the touching melody. The difference between ‘Oh Eesa’ the club Mix and the composer’s mix sung by Andrea and Karthik is that the latter has a desi touch in its style of presentation. ‘Penmaanae’ is in Bombay Jayashree and P.B. Srinivas’ voices; the song begins with an elaborate alaap by Jayashree which continues with her delicate rendition. The sad emotion wraps up the album.
G.V. Prakash’s compositions for Aayirathil Oruvan are sure to top listeners’ choices.
