Music Review: Nanban

Askku Laska is a stunner of a composition complemented to a great extent by fantastic lyrics and superb vocals from Vijay Prakash and Chinmayi. En Frienda Pola (Krish, Suchith Suresan) is the modern Mustafa Mustafa and makes for a fabulous listen in spite of its Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu influences (at Oru Padhai Neeye Pottu Thanthaai...). The VV effect continues in Irukkaanaa (Vijay Prakash, Sunidhi Chauhan) as well, a hopeless melange that doesn't work for all its catchy lyrics and energetic singing. Heartile Battery (Hemachandran, Mukesh) is a clever and interesting rework of the popular original track Aal Izz Well, while Endhan Kan Munney's (Aalaap Raju) sedate melodic tune makes use of guitar to great effect. Nalla Nanban (Ramakrishnan Murthy) seems to be stuck in Yamma Yamma (7aum Arivu) mode and is passable. Harris Jayaraj isn't in his top form, yet it's way better than his recent outputs.
