Soodhu Kavvum Music Review

The new bunch of team has set on the huge celebration in K-town now. The banner Thirukumaran Entertainment is on a fabulous spell of churning out back-to-back hit movies that includes 'Attakathi', 'Pizza' and more releases to arrive in 2013. Following the huge success of 'Pizza', Vijay Sethupathi and music director Santhosh Narayanan team up in 'Soodhu Kavvum' for the same producer.Music director Santosh Narayan extends his service for yet another C.V. Kumar production after Attakathi and Pizza. Soodhu Kavvum is directed by debutant Nalan Kumarasamy and stars Vijay Sethupathi and Sanchita Shetty in the lead.

Come Na Come(Chinna, Ganesh Kumar B)

The song opens with a spoken word instruction to prepare some odd concoction that is probably unsafe to consume. Thankfully it is interrupted by a gangsta-rap groove that breaks in with its mainstay chorus which is fairly infectious. Ganesh Kumar and Chinna sing in harmony trying to maintain their pitch and balance. Santosh Narayan shows off his skills as a talented sequencer by cheekily throwing in vocal samples and bits of mimicry without disrupting the flow of the tune.

Mama Douser(Andrea Jeremiah)

A tune that is tailor-made for a fun-on-the-run moment and the lyrics too could hint at the same. Musically the track is reminiscent of the Swing Revival movement of the early 90s and features some classy playing by the musicians. Andrea Jeremiah owns the song entirely and shows of her vocal prowess. Santosh Narayan does well to recreate the template but does little else to take the song forward.

Ellam Kadandhu Pogumada(Kovai Jaleel)

The galloping metronome cues you up for the old timey number from a bygone era of Tamil cinema. The music director plays all the right chords to recreate the nostalgic feeling by processing the vocals to the right effect, the singer’s articulation and nuances, the choice of instruments and its orchestration and finally the morally righteous lyrics.

Sudden Delight(Rob Mas)

The song is predominately an instrumental with a repetitive dance groove. The sequencing is rather predictable as the layers are introduced with a precision. The vocals make a namesake appearance towards the fag end of the tune whose purpose might be enhanced onscreen.

Sa Ga(Divya Ramani)

This sort of melancholic tune is beginning to become a staple part of Santosh Narayan’s soundtrack. He employs the full services of The Studio Orchestra of Sydney, even if the tune is less than two minutes in duration. The symphony arrangement gives a slo-mo effect and the track is reminiscent of something from Sound of Music.

Kasu Panam (Andony Dasan, Gana Bala)

Gana Bala and Andony Dasan play the satirical ‘cool dudes’ for an electronically programmed tune that’s Daft Punk-like. While the track sets you up nicely for something that could be hilariously enjoyable, its potential is diffused with its repetitive nature hampering any sort of progression.
