Review Overview

Ennamo Pannura
Orunaal Orunaal
Vaa Madhi Vadhana
Ice Cream Penne

Passable Debut from Radhan!

Though not exceptional, the album has its moments. Radhan's debut comprises an outstanding Orunaal Orunaal, a run-of-the-mill yet listenable Gaana Bala number but the other three tracks are poorly conceived.

  • Ennamo Pannura – Replete with techno beats, this peppy number works only in parts. The violin intermezzo towards the end is a misfit. A passable number!
  • Orunaal Orunaal – A pleasant tune and lovely vocals of Bobo Shashi rightly supported by Veena towards the fag end of the song. Though the composition looks a tad too familiar, the song, definitely, is a good listen
  • Vaa Madhi Vadhana – A funny western-retro set to the foot-tapping rap of Blaaze ends up drab and unexciting, thanks to the largely old-fashioned tune by Radhan
  • Nadukadalula – A run-of-the-mill Gaana Bala number. A predictable, done -and-dusted dappanguthu tune set to the funny lyrics which encompass first line of popular gaana songs in Tamil. A middling effort from the composer. One-time excitement, at best
  • Ice Cream Penne – Supposed to be the rework of Ennamo Pannura, this number appears rather sluggish. The arrangement of sounds is uninspiring. Probably the poorly conceived song in the album
