Music Review: Kanchana 2 (Tamil)

Composer(s): Ashwamithra, C. Sathya, Leon James, S. Thaman

Leon James's Sandi Muni rides on Haricharan Seshadri's forceful vocals to whip up a frenzy, while Vaaya Veera is Shakthisree Gopalan's show all the way, with the singer crooning the rustic melody spectacularly well. Not to forget the mighty interesting kanjira and violins in the arrangements either! S. Thaman likewise steps in with a simple earthy melody Motta Paiya (K. S. Chithra, Sooraj Santhosh). If C. Sathya's dappan koothu Sillatta Pillatta (Jagadeesh Kumar) makes for a raucous listen, Ashwamithra's Moda Moda is a quirky kuthu and Master Sriram Roshan aptly complements the song with his superlative singing. Kanchana 2 (or Muni 3) is an adequately potent concoction of kuthu and melody!
