Music review of 'Naan Kadavul'
Naan Kadavul is an Ilayaraja musical. ‘Amma Un Pillai’ is the highlight of the album. The song’s tune and tempo are remade from one of Ilayaraja’s earlier hits ‘Amma Un Kovilil’. S. Janaki’s classic, all-time favourite rendition is replicated by Sadhana Sargam and the singer does her best. The silky timbre in her voice itself delivers the exact feel. Shreya Goshal’s ‘Kannil Paarvai’ too creates a sombre mood. Shreya’s slow yet emotion-filled singing makes us lie back, close our eyes and drink in the deep feeling in the tune as well as the lyrics. ‘Maatha Un Kovilil’ by Madhumitha is a rehash of the same old tune along with the lyrics. The difference between the original and the new version is the change in the assortment of instruments Ilayaraja has chosen for the BGM. ‘Om Siva Om’ begins with a musical chanting of quite a few lines from the Rudram, a holy Saivist scripture that praises Lord Shiva. The song sung by Vijay Prakash that follows the chanting is simply captivating. ‘Oru Kaatril’ by Ilayaraja is a sad solo. The impacting lyrics and Ilayaraja’s unique voice does the magic; we are transported to a different world altogether. ‘Madhu Balakrishnan’s bold tone adds a great effect to ‘Pichaipathiram’, another sober number in the album. Ilayaraja’s music will be a great adornment to' Naan Kadavul'. The exquisite music and the meaningful lyrics prepare us well to absorb the intense theme of the film.
