Familiar, yet fun package!
Summary : On familiar grounds, Kodi scores as a soundtrack that gets over the line. Santosh Narayanan stitches his style into the mass genre, and comes out with an album that should do the job. It could have been better, but at the same time, it cannot be written off.
Cast: Dhanush, Trisha, Anupama Parameswaran
Music: Santhosh Narayanan
Direction: Durai Senthilkumar
Lyrics: Vivek, Dhanush, Arunraja Kamaraj
Label: Sony Music India
Kodi Parakkudha: Singers – Arunraja Kamaraj, Dhanush
Montage hero celebration track that suffers from a Veera Thurandhara / Porrkalam hangover. Powerful lyrics yes, but the end result is inappropriate.
Ei Suzhali: Singer – Vijay Narain
This one has the capability to become everybody’s favorite from Kodi. A mischievious, unique instrumental setup, with Vijay Narain rocking his part. The lyrics by Vivek deserve a mention too, our first PICK is here.
Ariraro: Singer – KS Chitra
A sufficient lullaby crooned by the legendary singer Chitra. Musically minimal, but the effect of it all may interest some.
Sirikki Vaasam: Singer – Shweta Mohan, Anand Aravindaakshan
Shweta Mohan and Anand Aravindaakshan score a home run with this beaut of a melody. Santosh Narayanan’s deadly combination of quirky percussions in a simple setup works hugely in favour of the song. Another PICK!
Vettu Pottu: Singer – Shankar Mahadevan
Though there is nothing innovative on the musical front, what makes this intro number work are the energetic vocals of Shankar Mahadevan. Should be candy for the front benchers, they will pick this with a glee.
