Zero Songs - Music Review
Ramesh Kannan S
Zero is the super natural thriller film directed by Shiv Mohaa with Ashwin as the lead. After Thegidi and Sethupathi's success Zero is the third album for young composer Nivas K prasanna. Let's check out what's in the store from this composer for this genre.
Uyire Un Uyirena:
Uyire Un Uyirena, enchanting beautiful melody embellished by simple ear pleasing arrangements with Navi Iyer's flute and Ragavendra Rao's Violin steals the show in this lovely opening feel good melody number from composer. It's refreshing to listen Anirudh’s vocals in the melody after string of madras kuthu songs by him. Kabilan- Nivas duo after Vinmeen Vithayil delivers winner in this album also.
Engae Ponai, another laid back melody topped by minimalistic orchestration with keys and Keba Jeremiah's charming guitar strums especially loved the classical twist with guitar in the first interlude. Vijay Prakash and Neeti Mohan own this tuneful track with their mesmerizing rendition which takes time to grow on the listeners.
Veredhuvum NijameIllai another exquisite melody from Nivas rides mainly on the wonderful rendition by Haricharanand he sweeps the listeners with his vocal range. Nivas equally delivers in arrangements front also with elegant score dominated by light drums, piano and mesmerising flute sections. Madhan Karky's poetic lyrics add further beauty to the track.
You are in my heart:
You are in my heart, out and out English number with classy score from Nivas and Natalia Di Lucia's splendid modish rendition gives the international feel to this track. Natalia once again steals the show with her singing after Aila Aila number in I especially arousing ecstatic operatic singing towards the end accompanied by drums and blissful string sections.
Indha Kaadhal Illaiyel:
Nivas ends the highly melodious soundtrack with comparatively fast paced number in the album Indha Kaadhal Illaiyel while the composer still maintains the melody quotient intact without compromising the fine balance between techno sound and vocals. Overall this track is the fitting engaging finish to the pleasant album from Nivas K Prasanna.
Nivas K prasanna, after slight hiccup in Sethupathi, delivers highly tuneful classy melodious soundtrack which surely captivates the target audiences. The monotonous soundscape of the album is the only minor grouse in this album.
Picks of the Album: Uyire Un uyirena, Veredhuvum Nijame Illai, Engae Ponai.
