Let me take the shelter of “Freedom of opinion” and say: 90 out of 100 songs are utter trash, these days. Neither an impressive tune nor any significant lyrics. Be happy with the rest 10%, you may say.
Unfortunately not. 5 of these 10 are remixes. So, not much credit to the composers. Rather, as long as they don’t spoil the original tune and rhythm, I say “Sabaash. Well done”
Of the all the albums I heard in 2007, one of the top pick would be Mozhi composed by Vidyasagar. "Oru Paanai Sotrukku Oru Soru Padam" – Vidyasagar proved himself his excellence in “Malare Mounama” of the movie Karna.
Vidyasagar’s shop is very interesting.
It all depends on what you want, finally.
Any amount of praise is not enough to praise the effort of Vidyasagar for the song “Kaatrin Mozhi Oliya Isaiya”. Vairamuthu at his best, again. Only very rarely all the elements for a great song come together. Excellent lyrics, brilliant composition, neat singing for a meaningful movie. All the factors turned around for Radha Mohan’s movie Mozhi.
Put your headphones ON and you are taken to a different world altogether. Excellent singing by Balram and Sujaatha. Even the other songs in the movie were really brilliant and apt for the movie.
“Pambarakannu, Pachamolaga, Appadi Podu, Eppadi Podu” nnu kaettu kaettu kaduppaana kadhugalukku, a soul stirring treat!
