Every time, Selvaraghavan comes up with a film, the expectations and excitements take a rise in toll. The very reason is that his films carry such an intense theme that gets you enthralled to a greater extent. Having made films of different genre, the director revisits the genre of ‘Fantasy’ that was so much present in his yesteryear film ‘Aayirathil Oruvan’. For the first time, he has teamed up with Harris Jayaraj and of course, the album has gained a new dimension.
En Kaadhal Thee
Vocals: S.P. Balasubramaniam
The album opens with a beautiful melody, which is quite different from his usual compositions. Be the tunes, instrumentals or the accompaniment on beats, everything seems to be subtle with a good dulcet factor. What’s more interesting about the song is the spellbinding intonation by SP Balasubramaniam. Obviously, the song will have its reach with the visuals.
Vinnaithaandi Anbe Vandhai
Vocals: Vijay Prakash
The song takes you through the transfixing moods and is quite pleasing to our senses. Vijay Prakash very well handled the song effortlessly in a greater manner. Although, the beats are quite heavy in the backdrops with a wonderful mix of techno spell, his voice remains stable. Again, the song will have a better result with the visual magnificence of Ramji.
Vocals: Hariharan, Sriram
If you’re looking out for the special features in this song, we would say Harris Jayaraj has made a good choice of singers that include Hariharan and Sriram. The composition is very simple, but we feel it to be little dragging in a few places. Vairamuthu has done a good job in bringing in some raw lyrics to emblazon the feel of this song.
Whoever maybe the music composers, Dhanush’s vocalism will always remain to be the same. Over here, Harris Jayaraj has tried to change the style of music to make sound Dhanush in a different way, but again the actor-playback singer sticks to his usual paradigm. Of course, this is the cherry-pick of Irandam Ulagam album.
Mark our words, this will be one of the finest compositions of 2013. The lyrics are stark and Harris Jayaraj has made a beautiful composition by giving more importance to playback singer Karthik. Yes, his voice sounds crystal clear and the melodious instrumentals in the backdrops are exquisite.
Mannavane en Mannavaney
Vocals: Gopal Rao, Shakthi
For the first time, Harris Jayaraj has tried something different from his usual genre of songs. To be precise, the singers Gopal Rao and Shakthi make the song sound best in every place. Not to miss the significance of Harris’ composition, which is an additional attraction of this track.
Theme of Irandam Ulagam
The album ends with an overpowering musical spell – Theme of Irandam Ulagam, which gives an outmost feeling of this film’s backdrop. The symphonic orchestration along with the humming sound of male chorus stands out to be highlighting flash point in this album.
Overall, Irandam Ulagam carries some of the promising works from Harris Jayaraj. While a couple of songs are already a blooming hit in the audio markets, it’s obvious much alike Selvaraghavan’s previous movies, rest of the songs will gain its popularity within a short span of time.
Final Take – Different attempt by Harris Jayaraj.
