Vaanam (Tamil Movie) – Music Review

Evan Di Unna Petha, the track that was released as a single some months back, is ideal dance floor material — noise levels bordering on cacophony in many places, processed vocals drowned by the sound in many places (for good reason too, the little super star Simbu hasn’t done a very commendable job). And for the same reasons the song is unfit for playing at home. Though the vocalist Yuvan Shankar Raja disappoints with the title song, the composer Yuvan Shankar Raja more than makes it up with a sweeping ambient orchestration, giving an immensely enjoyable end product. Cable Raja is not YSR’s best kuthu song, but still has enough spunk in it to get your feet tapping. Abhishek and Lawrence (the choreographer?) do the singing honours. The rock track Who Am I has an interesting arrangement highlighted by the guitar riffs, but the vocals part is annoying despite Benny Dayal. Especially irritating is the hajaar appearances of the Who Am I refrain. The soundtrack ends with another folk dance song, No Money No Honey. Like the previous one, not his best, but spunky enough. In fact this one would rate a tad lower than the previous one. The vocalists are better here though, Silambarasan doing a far better job singing this, alongside Andrea and Srikanth Deva.

Yuvan Shankar Raja sticks to the regular Simbu template in Vaanam’s soundtrack as well, but fails to match the usual quality.

“Evandi unna pethan” is delightfully brash though it highly insults women…goes with STR s image..
