Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum Music Review

Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum is an upcoming Tamil film directed and written by Bharathiraja. It features Lakshman Narayan, Karthika Nair and Manoj Bharathiraja in the lead roles. The film has music by G. V. Prakash Kumar.the lyrics have been contributed by Vairamuthu, Arivumathi, Egadesi and Gangai Amaran. Bharathiraja also provides commentary in between the songs in his inimitable style.

Aavarangaatukulla(Sathya Prakash, Chinmayi)

The album opens on a sensational note that surpasses the next four-and-a-half minutes with pitches of love and romance. The signature in Sathya Prakash's voice is truly transcending, and as Chinmayi (with her voice as unique yet coordinated) adds in after the first few lines, the magic reaches its musical best. Sadly, it also ends right there, for from then on, there is almost no variety. Well fitting lyrics furnished by Vairamuthu is thoroughly entertaining, but only till the second stanza. Somehow, all the enchantment seems to die out in the second half of the song. The flautist has done a commendable job, and the burgeoning notes are sure to get you hooked up with them.

Pothi Vecha(G. V. Prakash Kumar, Prashanthini)

Although the beginning reminds you of the yesteryear melodies, there are no particular complaints. The true boom factor of this melody is the poetry - adulation of rapture has been worded to its best. Evolution of the song in the lyrics befitting love is mesmerizing so much so that it seems to end too fast, leaving you wanting for more. Choice of voices for the emotion conveyed are nothing less than perfect and blend neatly all through the length of five-and-a-half minutes.

Nariga Uranga(Santhosh, Pooja, Harini Sudhakar)

The track opens with the dauntless voice of Manasi, booming in, and Charan's voice well compliments hers, as they set the song flowing in harmony. Howbeit, you would have lost it even before the song ends, for the lyrics are highly repetitive all through the length. Usage of strings at high pitch is a welcome change and is in sync with the emotion of the song. The flute after the second stanza is a beautiful mutation, as opposed to, yet in accord with, the rest of the song that is comparatively heavy. Lyrics are rather raunchy in this number. This is, albeit, yet another duet in the album.

Poraale(S. P. B. Charan, Manasi MM)

There is an expeditious yet a welcome change in bass down in the fourth track. Despite the parent notes being numb and falling flat, the pathos carried by the singers, peerless, adds life to the song. Although melancholy has almost always been associated with violins in Tamil music, the use of strings in this number is mesmerizing and noteworthy. The variety in lyrics is burgeoning and aberrant to the customary verses. Usage of voices and instruments, not forgoing one another, is perfectly justified in the time frame. In all, this song is bound to make a lasting impression upon the listeners.

Anname(G. V. Prakash Kumar, Pooja)

Something that one would notice at once is the BGM - predominant keys and viol with feeble beats to their support, is a song in itself, that compliments the mainstream melancholy. Voices befit the emotion and rustic verses. The flow of the song, to an accordant conclusion, seems effortless. However, the track is no sensation. Lyrics are rather traditional. Well, another duet, but doleful.

Kola Vaala Edungada('Padayapa' Sriram, A. R. Reihana, Maya)

The last track in the album brings a dramatic change in emotion. This one is outrageous and has a lot of gore and angrily bloody elements in the lyrics. The voices, like in all the tracks, have been chosen with care and justify the song and also the perturbation. However, there is no reprieve from repetition in lyrics; and the chorus is, simply put, bad. If at all this aims to deliver any message, then it is with regard to caste bias. There ends it.
