Have been wanting to write about this one for quite sometime but then it kept missing it. Anyways, better late than never, so here goes:
A stunner of an album composed in Tamil by Academy Award winner A.R.Rahman for the movie Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya. The album is centered on a two people who are in love and fall apart later.
There are a total of seven songs from different genres of music, the album is pure magic and totally enchants the listener. The standout in the set of songs would be a Malayalam rock number sung by singer/composer Alphonse. The special feature of this song is the employment of Alphonse (A Malayalam singer/composer) as singer. All that I had ever heard him singing was melody and now suddenly he comes out all screamy and passionate with this slow rock number! Just one word: REVELATION!
The songs in this album outscored all competition received critical acclaim equal to one of A.R.Rahman’s previously pampered works Alaipayuthe. And that’s not even getting started on the background score, but that would require a separate review!
One little concern for listeners is that this album, like all of A.R.Rahman’s works, sort of grows on you and might not be liked immediately.
Give it a chance and believe me, you will not regret it!
