Cast: Jayam Ravi,Nayanthara,Aravind Swami, Ganesh Venkataraman
Music: Hiphop Thamizha
Lyrics: Hiphop Thamizha
Direction: Jayam Raja
Singers: Hip Hop Thamizha,Bobo Shashi
The title track is a typical Aadhi number which blends rap with EDM arrangements. The lyrics are not jarred by the heavy electronic instrumentation & that itself is a silver lining. The song has good inspirational lyrics which blends with the theme of the track.
Singers: Kaushik Krish,Padmalatha
The album’s best track is here! ‘Kannala Kannala’ is the easily accessible song among the lot. The song is Yuvan-ish in parts but Hiphop Aadhi pulls out lot of charm with the pallavi portions. The interludes have an arabic touch to it. The song gets better as it reaches out to the charanam. Good Listen!
Singers: Khareshma Ravichandran
This female solo track musters up attention as it gets played. Khareshma renders it with a pinch of western style. The arrangements are jazzier with lot of foxtrot. The track doesn’t get one hooked instantly and seems to require multiple listening.
Singers: Jayam Ravi
Aasai Peraasai explains one side of the coin – the good side in every human. Jayam Ravi utters his character’s motto & the dialogues are backed by the Thani Oruvan title track arrangements. Highly script oriented!
Theemai Dhan Vellum
Singers: Arvind Swami, Hiphop Thamizha
Theemai Dhan Vellum is the other side of the coin. Arvind Swami’s voice adds a lot of style to this track. If whatever that gets said in this song is the characterization of Arvind Swami, we are in for a very interesting movie.One of the better arranged tracks of the album!
On the whole, ‘Thani Oruvan’ is an album that oozes style & texture unlike many staple commercial albums these days. The soundtrack is entirely script oriented & is good to see Hiphop Thamizha venturing out showing his versatility.
Picks from the album: Kaadhal Kaadhal,Thani Oruvan, Theemai Dhan Vellum
Album Verdict: High on style & texture!
Album Rating: 3/5
