Arrambam Music Review

93

Every time Ajith Kumar’s album arrives, it turns to be a huge celebration for his fans. Unlike other stars, it remains to be a fact that his albums get released in a hiatus of one year or more. Apparently, Vishnuvardhan’s Arrambam isn’t an exception. The successful combination of Ajith-Vishnuvardhan-Yuvan is back following the grand success of Billa. The album of Arrambam has five tracks and the lyrics are written by Pa Vijay.

The album opens up with a gala celebration track – Adada Arrambame that is crooned by Shankar Mahadevan. Perhaps, the intro songs rendered by Shankar Mahadevan have always been Chartbusters and for Ajith, it’s always special. This song has a lot of pumping percussions in the musical accompaniment.

Tanvi Shah and Shakthishree Gopalan – both these singers have always proved their proficiency in their own ways. While Tanvi rocks with the western style, Shakthi has wooed us with her mellisonant voice. This time, both of them are here to rock with Hare Rama that takes them to the other level. The lyrics might sound simple, but the visuals by Om Prakash should get more intensity to this track.

The third track ‘Melala Vedikkudhu’ should be the highlight among all other songs as it carries some brilliant flashes with the visuals as well. The song has been filmed on Ajith Kumar, Nayantara and Rana Daggubati. Vijay Yesudas, K.G. Ranjith and Swetha Mohan have crooned the song in such a way that it enlivens the emotional depth of friendship. The song is shot across the backdrops of Holi festival, which is yet another highlighting trait.

Karthik has tried to touch a different panorama of his voice and achieves it to a certain extent with En Fuse Poche. It’s simple and ordinary when it comes to lyrics and even the musical score by Yuvan Shankar Raja is not as worthy of appreciations.

The album ends with Stylish Thamizhachi that is rendered by M.M. Manasi, Rubba Bend and Psycho Unit. The singers exhibit their power of potentials to a greater depth and you’ll get addicted as you keep listening to this track over and again.

On the whole, Arrambam tracks are just okay. The magic that was delivered by Ajith-Yuvan combination in the past goes missing here. Apart from a couple of tracks, the rest of the songs are too average to enjoy. Maybe, the visuals and Vishnuvardhan’s knack of picturing them in an elegant way might score them brownie points.

Verdict: Too average, doesn’t exceed your expectations
