Raja Rani Music Review

Raja Rani is a romantic multi-starrer that features popular faces such as Arya, Nayanthara, Jai, Nazriya Nazim, Sathyaraj and Santhanam. The project is directed by young Atlee, a former associate of Shankar. The film has music composed by G.V.Prakash.Raja Rani comes as an interesting film right from the first look posters. After the trailer launch expectation levels on the music is shooting up and here is our music review…

A love for life (Chennai Symphony, G.V.Prakash, Instrumental, Navin Iyer)

GV Prakash is known for his theme song in his film and this number ‘ A love for life’ is one of his best after Mayakkam Enna theme. The gentle piano with melodious orchestra takes us to a new world and when the chorus portion starts it gives us goose bumps.

Hey Baby(Aishwarya, G.V.Prakash Kumar, Gaana Bala)

The track opens with the sax-man warming up and playing sections of the melody before the backing vocalists form an acappella unit where the vocal harmonies are beautifully arranged along with a Ukulele, and G.V sends down a few chirpy lines with their support. Then there’s the surprise entry of the kuththu beat and Gaana Bala’s unmistakable voice and lyrics which take the song into a new direction, still keeping the enjoyment very much in tact. An innovative fusion !

Angnyaade(Shakthisree Gopalan)

Our pick in the album , Shakthi Sree’s vocals is such a delight to hear and she throws the rural lyrics with so much ease. Just like Yathey Yathey this song is going to rule the charts in 2013, the instruments used is so soothing to ears a definite hit by all means.Special mention to Pa Vijay’s lyrics and it is his best in recent times.

Chillena( Alka, Alphonse, Clinton Cerejo)

A nice blend of rock and folk that doesn’t seem like its overly fabricated and forcibly pieced together. There is a sense of continuity in the track even when it wanders into distinctive territories, like the classical Malyalam section. The folk change over at first may seem as a relief but it does more by justifying the contrast of its fuzzy guitared counterpart. The singing overall is pitch perfect and Clinton especially sounds high on life. The Nadhaswaram bit may just turn out to be the signature sound of the film too.

Unnale( Vandana Srinivasan)

The percussions used in this number is so classy and Vanda Srinivasan’s vocal just spills the soulful energy along with the tune. Na Muthukumar’s lyric is simple yet striking.

Oday Oday Nil(Sasha, Shalmali Kholgade, Vijay Prakash )

A total fun track where rock n roll styled guitars play hide and seek with Indian spirits, and it comes across as a friendly partnership in the end. Even though the whole track paints a bright and colorful picture it’s inevitably the effective chorus hook that the listener waits for and its one that you will find hard to resist. Vijay Prakash sets the tone with an effervescent performance and the ladies duly follow.

Imaye imaye(G.V. Prakash Kumar, Shakthisree Gopalan)

Big strings and flute automatically create a sense of seriousness and the track keeps the grip all through. The vocal performances by G.V.Prakash and Shakthisree are undoubtedly heartfelt and it’s backed up by a strong string arrangement.
