Purampokku Songs Review

Ramesh S Kannan

Purampokku Engira Podhuvudaimai is one of the most anticipated movies of 2015. Music is composed by debutante Varshan. Let’s check what’s in the store from debutant Varshan.


Aaja O Re:

Aaja O Re starts off similar to the title song from Aarambam on a celebratory note but heavily templatized tune in the vocals of Abhay Jodhpurkar makes this short surprising Hindi track in Tamil album, a passable one.


Dhaegam Thakkum:

Another short track from the album works in a better manner because of racy percussions, sweeping violins and flute bits amidst terse singing by Krishna Kumar and Ramya NSK. However, the track didn't last long to make an impact on the listeners.


Kalaasi Kalaasi:

Kalaasi Kalaasi, backed by string of singers MLR Karthikeyan, MalathyLakshman, Thirukumar Thiagarajah and Diwakar is dredged out of 90's gaana repertoire which is strictly one time listen for its quirky vocals and lyrics.Varshan's tune becomes monotonous, laborious listen in the midway and also evocative of yesteryear hit Kaasumela from Kadhala Kadhala.


Marina Beachula:

Marina Beachula is another tribute to Deva's gaana song and vocals of Diwakar and Mukesh too reminds Deva's voice. However, tune and arrangements are archaic and bland which makes this track tedious listen for the contemporary listeners.


Orae OruMurai:

Soundtrack's undeniable winner comes in the form of Orae OrumMurai, has its beautifully crafted tune adorned by Ilayaraja'sque interludes with ample support from westernised rendition of SunithaSarathy and ever reliable VijayPrakash. Gorgeous violins in the backdrop of Sunitha's humming and chorus portions add enough breezy feel to the song.


Verdict: Purampokku is ambitious with respect to its star cast and movie trailer, but the soundtrack didn't live up to its expectations. Overall, passable debut from Varshan barring one exceptional melody.


My rating: 2.5/5
