Year end has approached already... and it is time to evaluate.
Not my performance... but the journey thru the 2005's cine music extravaganza.
Already bloggers have started rating this year's releases, where I had even voted for my favourites. So, I have decided to skip all those ratings and wanted to bring out those songs which had mesmerized me & made me to listen to them repeatedly.
As I had mentioned, I am rating only those mesmerized me.. I might have excluded your favourites, inadvertently. If I had done so, pl. let me know...10) "Kanmoodi Thirakkum Podhu..."
scored & sung by Sri Devi Prasad, was a nice song which didn't get the attention that much, since the movie was supposed to be a flop. Since, I liked the lyrics & the picturisation, it has been recognised into my final 10.9)
Eventhough "Unnai Saranadainthen ..."
sung by Kalyani & Prasanna (or Piranna?) was not placed in the already lengthy Thavamai Thavamirundhu
, I liked the tunes of Sabesh / Murali.
Initially, when I listened to it, I felt like listening to one of ARR's earlier compositions. Later, when I watched the movie, I could find only 'Nanae Tholaintha Kathai...
' with the same tunes, still likeable. Other notable songs, which I liked in this movie were the romantic 'Enna Parkirai..
' and the emotional 'Oru murai thaan
..'. You should listen to the lyrics of 'Oru Murai thaan..' Reality may strike you.8)
I believe 'Uyire En Uyire...'
from 'Thotti Jaya' by Haris Jeyaraj went unnoticed due to the violent theme of the movie. Still an interesting song to listen, sung by Karthik, Bombay Jayashree & Anuradha Sriram. Another interesting number from this movie was, 'Yaaridamum...
' which was very much likeable.7) 'Raa Raa..'
from 'Chandramukhi' [Binni Krishnakumar - Thippu], has come into the list mainly because of the different presentation. I heard that these tunes had been borrowed by Vidyasagar from Kannada 'Apthamithra'. I felt that other songs had become hits, just because of Rajini. Nothing else.... Otherwise, they were not great numbers from Vidyasagar.6) 'Theepidikka Theepidikka...'
sung by Anushka & Premji (Gangai Amaran's son) in 'Arindhum Ariyaamalum' had made Arya an instant star. Kudos to YSR and the husky voice of Anushka. Another song which impressed me very much was 'En Kannodum...
' sung by YSR himself. Beautiful picturisation too....5)
The only album by ARR during this year, was not capitalised very well by our great SJ.Suryah. Out of this, I would rate 'Mayileragae..
' as a better one than others, due to the soothing voice of Madhushree & Naresh. An interesting observation by one of our blogger was that when you hear this song in a fast forward mode, you may get the rhythm of 'Maramkothiyea, Maramkothiyea...'
song of the same movie. That's how I also felt.
Another interesting song from this movie 'Aararai kodi..'
which I missed in the Great ARR Singapore show
, was a comical song in the movie... still my son used to enjoy SJ.Suryah's comical movements in this song.4)
Without 'Iyengar Veetu azaghe...'
the list won't end. Haris Jeyaraj with Hariharan & Harini in this song, really impressed the mass.. and also with all his other numbers. [I still like 'Rendakka'
for its colorful presentation & 'Kumari'
Eventhough 'Andha Naal Nyabagam..'
('Athu Oru Kana Kalam') resembled one of Ilayaraja's old classic, the soothing voice of Vijay Jesudoss & Shreya Ghoshal had pushed it to greater heights. Unfortunately, the individual performances of everyone involved in this project didn't make it to click in BO. Lucky next time...2)
Jeeva had a lucky deal with Ameer, when they came out with 'Raam'. An excellent collection of songs from YSR, had also helped them to get an instant recognition for this movie --- in addition to the screenplay. The soothing voice of KJ.Jesudoss in his 'Arariraro..'
and the emotional shots had made this song to get this slot. Another number which impressed me a lot in this movie was 'Nizhalinai nijamum..
' sung by Vijay Jesudoss.1)
What else can snatch the first place, other than 'Suttum Vizhi Sudare..
.' from Ghajini
. An attractive song of the year from Harris Jeyaraj, sung by Sriram Parthasarathy & Bombay Jayashree, made me to make a maiden attempt
during the deepavali season.
The way it was shot, along with those acceptable lyrics & superb performance by Surya & Asin had pushed it up in the ladder to this height. ['Oru malai..
' was another favourite of mine in this movie, in which Surya's dance had revealed his improved performances]. Kudos to the team.... :-) :-) It is unfortunate that Asin had not signed any movies still.... :-( :-(
The other numbers which I considered before short listing the above were the following numbers.Noothana
- Karka Kasadara - Prayok [Haris Raghavendar - Chinmayi]Chinna Chinna
- Kana Kandein - Vidyasagar [Thippu - Sunitha Sarathy]Khajiraho
- Oru naal Oru Kanavu - IR [Hariharan & Shreya Ghoshal]Pani Thulli
- Kanda Naal Mudhal - YSR [Shreya Ghoshal, Kay Kay & Thanvi]Saami Kitta
- Daas - YSR [Hariharan & Shreya Ghoshal]
Some notable /intentional misses are from Maayaavi, Oru Kalluriyin Kathai, Sivakasi, Majaa
, Mumbai Express and new releases like Sandaikozhi, Kalvanin Kadhali, Dishoom etc.,
