From the makers of musical hits ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’ and ‘Ko’, ‘Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal’ prolongs the celebration for music buffs. While the banner has worked with couple of A.R. Rahman and Harris Jayaraj, they have yet another big brand G.V. Prakash joining them. Producer Eldred Kumar of RS Infotainment makes his debut directorial through this film starring Atharva and Amala Paul in lead roles.

Mazhai pozhiyum

Voices: Benny Dayal, Megha, G.V. Prakash

Lyrics: Thamarai

For the first few seconds, you will feel as though hearing an Abba songs. The song is completely western and G.V. Prakash brings in apt singers to enhance the western touch. GVP has always been trying his experiments into different music genres and this one is a great illustration of what he is capable of. Benny Dayal sounds truly like a Rockstar while GVP sounds cool offering a breezy touch. We hear the humming of Megha at places. Overall its a brilliant works on guitars, bass and rhythm box.

Kangal Neeye

Voices: Sittara

Lyrics: Thamarai

Thamarai is far-famed for her aesthetic style of expressing a girl’s feeling towards her beloved sweetheart. Who can forget her most commendable tracks – ‘Vaseegara’, ‘Ondrai Irandai’ and ‘Mannipaaya’? Following them we have ‘Kangal Neeye’, a song that will surely become the most loved song of the girls. Perhaps, it’s a best dedication they can make to their soulmates. Sittara has a bold voice and makes the song sound like a typical Ghazal. But how far, will it suit Amala Paul? We need to wait and watch.

Oh Sunanda

Voices: Raman Mahadevan, Caroline, Megha

The base style of rhythm and composition has an Arabian touch. The song sounds subtly good for the first time you hear it. It might take few more time for the song brew to our tastes. Maybe, the visuals should enhance the feeling. The singers have their parts done decorously.

Oru Murai

Vocals: G.V. Prakash, Andrea, Blaaze

Lyrics: Thamarai

This song is about a chap’s search of best gifts for his girlfriend. He is puzzled about what would interest her and the lyrical lines of Thamarai consist of the gift articles. But it’s decorous vocalism by G.V. Prakash that steals the show. The complete orchestration of the track including the sound effects is done with excellence. Don’t miss the rap portions by Blaaze as his impressive spell stands out as the best attributes here. The teaser of this song has already captured everyone’s interest and it turns us irresistible to wait for the complete album. There is a reprised version of this track followed by a remix that will be a sure hit on party floor.

Yaar Aval Yaaro

Vocals: Mohammad Irfan

Lyrics: Thamarai

The song resembles ‘Ya Ali’ from Hindi movie Gangster at many places, though not the exact one, for the ones who have been constantly hearing that song over years, the Deja vu feel remains there. Mohammad Irfan has a sweet voice and he expresses the emotions so fabulously. While the song ‘Kangal Neeye’ was about a woman’s song, this one is about a lad’s dedication to his girl.

Sokku Podi

Vocals: Baba Segal, Shruthi Haasan

Lyrics: Thamarai

Get ready for the Punjabi mix with Tamil lyrics. To add up more , G.V. Prakash brings in a sizzling combination of singers – Baba Segal and Shruthi Haasan to croon the track. Shruthi Haasan has to little shift her paradigms while rendering such tracks as she keeps intonating even this track with the western touch.

‘Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal’ is enriched with the beautiful songs of G.V. Prakash. Though we might not find all the tracks turning to be chartbusters as in ‘Mayakkam Enna’, half the tracks here in this album are sure to make it bigger.

Verdict: Youth Festival by G.V. Prakash

Production: RS Infotainment

Direction: Eldred Kumar

Star-casts: Atharva, Amala Paul and others

Music: G.V. Prakash

Lyrics: Thamarai
