Irumbu Kuthirai – Songs Review

Review Overview

Penne Penne
Angae Ippo Enna Seigiraai
Pondicherry Vazhiyela
Hello Brother

A Stale Show!

After delivering a short and sweet album for the art-house Saivam, GV Prakash offers a stale and perfunctory album for the commercial Irumbu Kuthirai!

Cast: Atharvaa Murali, Priya Anand, Raai Lakshmi, Alisha Abdullah 

Direction: Yuvaraj Bose

Music: GV Prakash Kumar

Label: Sony Music India

Lyrics: Thamarai and Pa. Vijay (Hello Brother)


  • Penne Penne – A lovely tune, simplistic orchestration, GV Prakash’s pleasing vocals and Bhavatharini’s infectuous humming make this our pick of the album. Yazhini’s humming interlude in the second charanam deserves applause!
  • Angae Ippo Enna Seigiraai – Starts off on a promising note and ends up as another run-of-the-mill soundtrack, which sounds good only in parts. Vijay Prakash’s vocals, the saving grace
  • Pondicherry Vazhiyela – A soft kuththu number, something GV Prakash has been successful at in his past albums, with lovely vocals from Priya Hemesh and a majorly accessible tune. AR Raihanah looks like a bad choice here. The flute interlude warrants a mention
  • Alaipaayum – A rhythmic tune high on energy and tempo, but pathetically low on novelty. The song is poorly crafted even with two promising singers Vijay Prakash and Andrea Jeremiah doing the honors. A middling effort from the composer
  • Hello Brother – Taking inspiration from Ilaiyaraja’s Unnai Azhaithathu song’s prelude beats, GVP has cooked a tasteless concoction here with an array of singers including himself. Another stale composition!
