Lyrics: Pa. Vijay, Madhan Karky, Na. Muthukumar, Kabilan
The most anticipated album of this year arrives in a style now. The combination of Suriya-A.R. Murugadoss- Harris Jayaraj doesn’t need an illustration of its prodigious piece of work in ‘Ghajini’ as the songs are still the favorite of the masses. We have them arriving with a much big ticket titled ‘7 Aum Arivu’, produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin under the banner name of Red Giant Movies.
The album has 6 tracks that are completely based on different styles. With few hours left for the audio launch of ‘7 Aum Arivu’, we bring you the music review of tracks from the album.
1. Oh Ringa Ringa
Vocals: Roshan, Jerry John, Benny Dayal and Suchitra
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay
The song strikes more similarities with A.R. Rahman’s ‘Taxi Taxi’ from Sakkarakatti that goes more with the style itself. Even the rap lines rendered by the singers are off the same pattern. However, the visual grandiloquence of 1000 dancers shaking their legs in the busiest lanes of Chennai like – T Nagar Ranganathan Street, Adyar Bridge is gonna make the song a big hit. The lyrics aren’t as audible as Harris Jayaraj gives more priority to the sound. It’s a song meant for the youth audiences.
2. Mun Andhi
Vocals: Karthik, Megha
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar
Harris Jayaraj always has a perfect song for Karthik to render for Suriya. It has been evident with ‘Oru Maalai’, ‘Vizhi Mudi Yosithal’ and many more. Now it’s time to enjoy their melodious treat with ‘Mun Andhi’ that has a sweet composition by Harris Jayaraj. The rhythmic pattern goes the same way of ‘Uyire En Uyire’ from ‘Thotti Jaya’.
3. Yellae Lama
Vocals: Vijay Prakash, Karthik, Shalini and Shruthi Haasan
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar
The song is done in western style and the lyrical lines don’t have a distinct clarity and it’s too odd for any listener to figure out what’s playing on there. The visual treat perhaps should enhance the level of this song.
4. Yamma Yamma
Vocals: S.P. Balasubramaniam
A different song indeed as it proves to be completely different from other tracks in this album. It’s about the pathos of protagonist, who has lost his love in life. The ‘Gadam’ and ‘Tabla’ are the only percussions used in the song and the vocalisms by S.P. Balasubramaniam get more importance.
5. The Rise of Damo
Vocals: Hao Wang
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
The song is about the voice of Chinese souls about a man, who becomes their savior and to know more about this, you’ve got to wait till the film is released. The voice is blessed and maybe, a perfect translation to the song will help the Tamil audiences have more interest for this song.
On the whole, ‘7 Aum Arivu’ comprises of best and average songs. Maybe with the greater promotions of Udhayanidhi Stalin, the tracks will gain the momentum, but for sure there’s gonna be a big opening for the album in market.
Verdict: Fine work by Harris Jayaraj.
