Enakul Oruvan is the official remake of the Kannada sleeper hit ?Lucia? and stars Siddharth, Deepa Sannidhi, Ajay Rathnam and many others. Siddharth whose movies are known to have good songs joins hands with Santhosh Narayanan. Let us see how that combination has come out:
Singers: Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Ganesh Kumar Krish
The album?s best song! Santhosh Narayanan wields the microphone and does the rendition for ?Endi Ippadi? himself. The lyrics are ample fun and Santhosh?s vocals give them a new flavor. There is an accompanying bass line throughout the song and the tune itself is mighty catchy and highly likeable. Kutti Poochi Singers: Manicka Vinayagam Lyrics: Muthamil
Manicka Vinayagam for a Santhosh Narayanan composition sounds odd at the first instance but the composer has tricked us all and has come out with an instantly likeable tune. Manicka Vinayagam?s rendition suits the tune perfectly. The song is a part folk, part progressive rock number with interludes having heavy fusion of nadaswarams. Prabalamagavey Singers: Siddharth Lyrics: Muthamil
It has been a while since Tamil cinema delivered a complete psychedelic rock number and Santhosh breaks that barrier with ?Prabalamagavey?. The vocals of this song has been handled by Siddharth himself who has sung songs in Telugu in the past and has proved his mettle. The lyrics of the song hint us that this song would feature in the movie star?s segment of the film. A typical rock number! Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil Singers: Pradeep Kumar Lyrics: Vivek ?Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil? starts off with slow guitar strumming and the song tends to slowly grows on the listeners. Pradeep Kumar reunites with Santhosh Narayanan after ?Aagayam Theepudicha? from Madras and does a commendable job. Another highly pleasing number to the ears!
Singers: Dhibu Niman Thomas
?Yaar? is a song that is heavily lyric driven and is accompanied by mild instruments (mostly by the piano chords). In all probabilities, this song is likely to be a montague in the movie.
On the whole, it is safer to say that Santhosh Narayanan is on the peak of his prowess in ?Enakul Oruvan?. With a slew of hits like ?Jigarthanda?, ?Madras? & ?Cuckoo?, ?Enakul Oruvan? is a worthy addition to his repertoire.
Picks from the album: Prabalamagavey, Endi Ippadi, Kutti Poochi
Verdict: Santhosh Narayanan raises the bar one more time!
Rating: 3. 5/5
