Meaghamann audio review

Last Updated: Fri, Aug 22, 2014 11:56 hrs

Meaghamann which stars Arya and Hansika in lead roles is the forthcoming directorial venture of Magizh Thirumeni who last directed the critically acclaimed sleeper hit ‘Thadaiyara Thaaka’.  The movie has music by Thaman who has been having a great time with his Telugu albums clicking big time with the audience. What does Meaghamann music have in store for us?

Singers: M. M Manasi, M. M Monisha
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
The theme track of the movie!Meaghamann’ lasts just about two minutes and is most likely to be used as a title/re-recording score in the movie. And the rendition that actually gets featured in this number are pretty much auto-tuned. If used with apt visuals, this might work in the movie. 

Yean Ingu Vandhaan
Singers: Pooja Vaidyanath
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
Probably the best song of the album! ’Yean Ingu Vandhaan’ is Thaman trying out his hand at jazz and pulls it off exceedingly well backed by some wonderful rendition. The interludes have an earthy attribute to them. The simple, easy on the ears tune work wonders with the limited backing of arrangements.  

Yaaro Yaaro
Singers: Megha
Lyrics: Eknaath
Yaaro Yaaro’ is a highly contemporary club number with racing techno backgrounds which fails to form a connect with the listeners. The ‘Meaghamann’ hook is the best part of the entire three odd minutes. The synthesizers dominate the show but the tune misses the bus. 

Meaghamann-Theme Music
Singers: M. M Manasi, M. M Monisha
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
The ‘Meaghamann title track has been served to us again with the lyrics being swapped with instruments this time. This version has little more percussions than the initial one but that doesn’t help anyway in propelling the song’s impact. 

On the whole, Thaman delivers an underwhelming, short soundtrack which suggests that the movie has less scope for songs. Yean Ingu Vandhaan stands out from the rest of the songs in the album though.
Pick of the album: Yean Ingu Vandhaan
Rating: 2/5
