The movie is touted to have only one song but the most interesting part is that it is 11 minutes long. Since it happens to be the only song in the movie, Bala and Ilayaraja have takenextra care to come up with an interesting and creative number.

Bala’s movies have all had great compositions by the maestro - be it the songs or the BGM - and this one is going to be no different. Both are said to be working hard to make this number unique in more ways than one. The maestro’s fans the world over will be in for a treat when Naan kadavul is out.

Director Bala's 'Naan Kadavul', which has been under-production for almost a year, is finally nearing completion.

Directed by Bala, 'Naan Kadavul' has Arya in the lead role. The film witnessed change of heroines for at least three times. Finally Pooja was chosen to play the female lead to Arya

'Naan Kadavul' shooting resumed a few months ago. Ilayaraja does the music for the film.

Now efforts are on to release the movie on republic day (26 January, 2008).

The long wait for Arya may finally come to end next year.

இப்போ நான் கடவுள் படத்துக்காக ஜானகி அம்மாவோட பழைய பாட்டு ஒண்ணை ராஜா சார் மியூஸிக்ல பாடி இருக்கா, சூப்பரா இருக்கு

இதிலிருந்து இரண்டு விசயங்கள் தெரிகிறது

1. முதன்முறையாக இளையராஜாவும் ரீமிக்ஸ் செய்கிறார் தன் பாடலையே, அதாவது ஒரே மொழியில்
2. நான் கடவுளில் முன் வந்த செய்திப்படி ஒரு பாடல் (11 நிமி) மட்டும் இல்லை

IMO, Madhumita is a good choice.. She has a very good voice.. She sings really well...

Kana Kaanum kaalangal from 7G is the best song she has sung till date... vidigindra pozhuthu from Raam is also a very good no..

at last IR looks for some new voices atleast in his current team having singers like Bhava, Shreya, Manjari...

I want to disagree ! Madhumita needs to improve a lot. She gasps too much for breath whenever she sings even for "Kana kaanum kaalangal" which is so ordinary a tune to sing.

I dont hope IR will continue giving chances to her.

Good news indeed! but my 'Aaval' is less because i think the heroine who is a beggar (according to various sources of information) will be singing this song while begging is my gut feeling. So there wont be necessarily any orchestration changes. Lets wait and see!

And raaja sticking to his principles of not mingling to the people he had rift is correct, cause it would never create a similar magic again, BR exceptional, as they were freinds from childhood.

According to me, they wouldnt like others to praise them in front of their face, rather, if people do behind their back, they love it, cause thats wat they consider the real appreciaiton, muha sthuthi panina pudikathu..

They will praise themselves, but wudnt like others doing in front of the face, athu mari, than avaroda thina thanthi interview, sila nerthla ivera yen itha sonaru yosipom, namaku puriyathu..

[tscii:9ddb3932db] Bala and Pyramid Saimira at loggerheads
July 16, 2008

Bala has finally wrapped up his directorial venture Naan Kadavul but problems seem to be chasing him. But then, the project was embroiled in controversies and problems ever since it was kick started a couple of years ago. Initially, Bala had agreed to direct the film on a first copy basis for Raja Lakshmi Films for a sum of Rs. 3.5 crores. But the production washed its hands off the project and Pyramid Saimira chipped in to complete the film in a budget of about Rs. 7 crores. With the film almost complete, director Bala informed Pyramid Saimira that Naan Kadavul’s budget had reached Rs. 15 crores and insisted that the production house pay the remaining amount and get the film’s copy. This had naturally irked the production house and they have lodged a complaint at the Producer’s Council. Sources say that the Producers’ Council is mediating with both the parties to arrive at an amicable solution.

Insulting Vikram after Pithamagan.
Threatening Ajith for money during the early days of Naan Kadavul.
Now this problem.

I think he will soon fall out from IR's favour and ruin his career too !

For Bala kind of movies, I think Vikram is the perfect fit! (Surya is the next alternative but Kamal would have been better than Vikram).

He should have gone with one of these (or similar actor -say Jeeva). It wasn't a great idea to try Ajith in the first place and later getting into controversy...anyways, I haven't seen any movie with Arya and it should be interesting to watch this film. I'm sure Raja would have done a terrific job as he is the undisputed leader in "unmaththam" effects. (Listening to even a Rajini song like 'malaikkOyil vAsalil' can get you on a high, esp the interludes)

His character is like that, that is the reason his products are like Sethu, Nandha, Pithamagan. If he doesn't have his character or black spots as you say, I don't think we will ever see this kind of movies.

How did he insult Vikram?

Kamal is the wrong wrong actor for any Bala movie.
For a Bala movie an actor who is ready to absolutely 'DO anything' is required. Not some one who is a 'star' and a creator with thousand other thoughts running in the mind. Also having two directors in one set would spoil it for both of them.

'Naan Kadavul' nears completion
IndiaGlitz [Monday, July 21, 2008]

Director Bala's 'Naan Kadavul' is gearing up for release finally. The movie featuring Arya and Pooja was in the making for over a year. Amidst delay due to various reasons, Bala completed the movie recently and the post production work is going on.

A few sources are still of the opinion that there could still be a slight delay as talks are on between two warring sides.

Meanwhile, Bala has been roped in to do a movie for C TV Entertainment. He has been reportedly paid a hefty sum for the project. The story is ready while search is on for the star cast.

ZEE TV to buy Njan Kadavul?
By Moviebuzz | Monday, 25 August , 2008, 13:29

After a long slumber, director Bala is back in the news. Now he is trying to negotiate with Zee TV to buy his magnum opus Njan Kadavul, at his price.

Bala had originally started the project with P.L Thenappan as producer. Half way through, he got out of it by working out a deal with Pyramid Saimira. The deal saw PS taking over the project for Rs 7 crore, on first copy basis.

After Bala completed this Arya- Pooja starrer in nearly 300 shooting days, his budget went haywire. He wanted the deal to be re-negotiated with PS and asked for a 100 percent increase in the rate. A bitter battle started as PS was not in any position to increase the budget.

Meanwhile Zee TV who has been planning to set up a Tamil movie and entertainment channel has been pro-active in buying new film titles.

They snapped up Subramaniapuram before release for a whopping Rs 1.05 crore, smelling a hit. Now the same title is worth three times the value, after the film turned out to be a blockbuster.

Zee is also into buying films under production which they would distribute. As a part of aggressive content aggregation they have offered Bala a cool Rs 14 crore!

They want to be the world negative right holder for Njaan Kadavul, which includes audio, theatrical domestic and international, television and all other rights.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Seems like the movie will come out soon :bluejump:

yup! just coz ameerkhan gave couple good movies in his whole career , it doesnt mean that he is way better than kamal as actor/director.

I think most of us are getting things unnecessarily mixed up here - just coz Kamal is not working with IR for MY does not make AK a better creator/artist than Kamal! though this is not implied directly, the tone seems to be so!

AK was nothing more than a lollypop hero in mishsy -mashy romantic candie movies, for most of his first decade of his acting - only recently has he become a serious actor

lets stick to Kamal and IR - the former has chosen ARR over the latter for MY for IMO business reasons rather than artistic since he is not dumping all his money into the venture - he has a collaborator whose hands cannot be forced - and financially he has to be accountable and not just force the partner to accept IR as the MD (who at the moment is not as popular as ARR througout India)

Am sure both IR and Kamal enjoy an understanding and a rapport that goes beyond such business-enforced temporary parting

இயக்குநர் பாலா இழைத்து இழைத்து உருவாக்கியுள்ள படம் நான் கடவுள். ஆர்யா, பூஜா இணைந்து நடித்துள்ளனர். வித்தியாசமான கதைக் களத்துடன் கூடிய இப்படம் மிகப் பிரமாதமாக வந்திருப்பதாக பாலா தனது நெருங்கிய வட்டாரத்திடம் கூறி வருகிறார்.

படத்திற்கு இசைஞானி இளையராஜா அற்புதமான பாடல்களைப் போட்டுக் கொடுத்துள்ளாராம். குறிப்பாக ரீ ரெக்கார்டிங் மிரட்டும் என்று கூறுகிறார்கள்.

பாலாவுக்கு படத்தை விட அதில் நடித்த ஆர்யா, பூஜா மீது பரம சந்தோஷமாம். இருவரும் நடிப்பில் மிரட்டியிருக்கிறார்கள். இப்படத்துக்குப் பின்னர் எங்கேயோ போகப் போகிறார்கள் என்றும் கூறி வருகிறார்.

படம் முடிந்து விட்ட நிலையில் சில காட்சிகளில் பாலாவுக்கு திருப்தி போதவில்லையாம். இதனால் அந்தக் காட்சிகளை மட்டும் ரீ ஷூட் செய்துள்ளாராம்.

படம் தொடர்பான நகாசு வேலைகள் வேகமாக நடந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறதாம். பொங்கலுக்கு கடவுளைக் கண்ணில் காட்ட திட்டமிட்டுள்ளாராம் பாலா.

படத்தில் ஒரு காட்சியில் வந்தவர்கள் கூட, அவரவர் குரலில் டப்பிங் பேச வேண்டும் Naan Kadavulஎன்பதே பாலாவின் விருப்பம். ஷ§ட்டிங்கின்போதே இந்த சாமியார்களிடம், டப்பிங் பேச சென்னைக்கு வரணும் என்று கூறியிருந்தாராம் பாலா.

சில சாமியார்களை காசியில் இருந்தே கொண்டு வந்திருக்கிறார்கள். கஞ்சா புகையும், கணீர் பேச்சுமாக கிடுகிடுக்க வைக்கிறார்கள் இந்த சாமியார்கள். இந்த கூட்டத்தில், பிரபல கவிஞர் விக்ரமாதித்தியனும் ஒரு சாமியராக நடித்திருக்கிறார் என்பது விசேஷ தகவல்!

The guy is seriously having some mental trouble!!! His movies and real-life actions reflect them :P :P


Anyhow i am eagerly waiting for this movie as it is a subject that is untouched in world cinema!!!

Heard all the songs for 2 mins ..here is my review

There is no 11 minute or 10 min song in the cd...

1. Om sivoham om - Vijay Prakash
Runs for 6 mins...full sanskrit song...a great number in praise of lord shiva....typical bhajan..IR Kalakarar...in the lines of Mandir Sabari...wow ...superb number

2. Kannil Paravai - Shreya Goshal
6. oru katril - ilayaraaja

Both songs have the same tune....a beautiful number...superb tune and well rendered by shreya goshal.....
After a very long time...this tune is refreshing...IR ..

Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up!

3. Matha un kovil - Madhumita runs only for 42 secs
5. Amma un pillai - Sadna Sargam
Amma un pillai tune is of matha un kovil.....

4. Bhikshai Pathiram - Madhu Balakrishnan
lyrics: Ilayaraaja
We have already heard this tune.so

My quick review of naan KadavuL songs on first listening.

Wow! What an aural treat! Naan KadavuL brings in the new year with an auspicious note.

Om Shivoham in Sanskrit (Lyricist: Ilaiyaraaja?) is sung with great energy by Vijay Prakash.

Shreya Ghoshal excels in the meloncholic melody, "Kannil Paarvai POna Podhum". This is set in a rare raga.. which has shades of Rasikapriya. A class composition from IR. IR renders the male version of this song, "Oru Kaatril Alayum Siragu". The use of the musical instrument Dilrubaa is great. Both version stand out in their own right. Both singers sing their respective versions with such 'bhaavam' that one is drawn into the song instantly. A moving experience absolutely!

The classic "Maatha un Kovilil" appears in 2 avaraars - an extremely short "Maatha Un Kovilil" sung by Madhumita and a full fledged "Amma Un PiLlai naan".. rendered by Sadhana Sargam (she sounds like a younger Lata Mangeshkar at times). Completely different orchestration and interludes from the '70's original by IR. Comparisons are inevitable, from the singers point of view. Although Sadhana sings very well, I do feel S. Janaki's 'sangathis' and small embellishments are missing in Sadhana's rendering.

Madhu Balakrishnan makes a grand appearance in 'Pichai Paathiram'. The tune, the orchestration, the lyrics and his great singing bring goosebumps!! Madhu and IR, take a bow! He is the true successor to Yesudas in my opinion. The effect of this song on the listener is similar to that of the songs in Moha MuLL.

Overall, meaningful lyrics (Is it by PulamaiPithan or Mu. Metha??), great musical score, fine renditions.. One can't help but hit the 'Replay' button all the time. Thank you Maestro Ilaiyaraaja for this New Year treat.

hav been hearing NK songs non-stop since morning....simply extraordinary - nice way to start the new year - listening to NK songs will defy take you into a diff world....

1. pitchai pattiram - is is KJY singing....nope...its madhu balakrishnan....great singing n great feel....

2. amma un pillai - revisiting the 70s classic 'matha un koyil' - simply superb interludes (2nd interlude start will blow u off) - absolute treat to the ears....

3. om shiva om - very powerful song praising lord shiva - too good.

4. kannil - shreya ghosal - very nice melody - havent come out of the 1st 3 songs to immerse myself into this song....there is a 2nd version of this song in IR's voice...

listen to NK songs and enjoy!!!!

amma un pillai - remix of matha un kovilil back in 70z. Interludes are catchy :thumbsup:
Interludes alone are enough to stamp 'THE KING IR' :thumbsup: Sadhana does a good job.

kannil paarvai- I supp shreya could have done more justice. Disturbingly shrieky at some places, rudely waking us from a beautiful reverie.

Excellent melodious soul searching songs.
But not for techno/upbeat crowd.
Best song for me is Om Shiva Om by Vijay Prakash, what an amazing singer. Vijay is an amazing singer who has been there in the industry waiting for a big break, I guess with Manmohini song in Yuvaraj he has found his break.
I am looking forward to hear more of his voice in tamil.

Check out his old videos in youtube when he was a contestant in Zee's Saregamapa. He is from Mysore.

நான் கடவுள்:

ஒரு சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் இல்லாவிட்டாலும், அவர் நடித்த படத்துக்கு நிகரான பரபரப்பையும், எதிர்பார்ப்பையும் கிளப்பியுள்ள படம் பாலா- இளையராஜா கூட்டணியில் விஸ்வரூபம் எடுத்து நிற்கும் நான் கடவுள்.

மூன்று வருடங்கள் ஒரு தவம் மாதிரி இருந்து இந்தப் படத்தை எடுத்திருக்கிறார், கோடம்பாக்கத்தின் 'திரைஞானி' பாலா. அவரது படைப்புக்கு உயிர் கொடுத்திருக்கிறது இசைஞானியின் ஆர்மோனியம். 'பொங்கலுக்கும் தீபாவளிக்கும் ரிலீஸ் பண்ண என் படம் கரும்போ, பட்டாசோ அல்ல... ஜீவனுள்ள ஒரு படைப்பு. அது முழுமையடையும்போதுதான் வெளியாகும்' என்ற ' மிஸ்டர் பர்பெக்ஷனிஸ்ட்' பாலாவின் பிடிவாதத்துக்கு விருதுகள் காத்திருப்பது நிஜம்.



இந்தப் படத்தைக் காண தமிழகம் மட்டுமல்ல... பிறமொழி ரசிகர்களும்கூட ஆவலாக இருப்பதாக நடிகர் விக்ரம் நேற்று கூறினார். அது மிகையான வார்த்தையில்லை.

ஆர்யா நாயகனாக நடித்துள்ள இந்தப் படத்தின் ஆடியோ, வெளியான முதல் நாளிலேயே பெரும் வரவேற்பைப் பெற்றுள்ளது. பல கடைகளில் ஆடியோ சிடி கிடைக்காத நிலை. எஃப்எம்கள் புண்ணியத்தால் ஆடியோ மார்க்கெட்டே விழுந்து கிடக்கும் இந்தச் சூழலில், வருடத்தின் முதல் நாளே நான் கடவுள் ஆடியோ சாதனை படைக்க ஆரம்பித்திருப்பது நல்ல அறிகுறியாகவே படுகிறது.

Pitchai paathiram song is good too. Madhu balakrishnan is great in this song. He is certainly the man in place of KJY.

OF course the song OM SIVA OM is the pick of the album, i guess its the intro song of grown up arya or climax song, very very very powerful song terrifically sung and beats r terrific!!!

This song is spiritually elevating and its beats are cutting edge of a sword so sharp n hitting!!!

The chorus chants in 'Om Siva', is it from the 'rudhram'?
Yes, the verses that come before the first stanza are, but not those that come in the beginning. (Or may be they are from some kind of prologue to rudram. Not sure.)

Bala rocks NK should rock

SVN
4th January 2009, 04:07 PM
Ajith,

I am enjoying the music of Kaan KadavuL and I have no doubt the BGM would rock! However I wouldn't like to be carried away with the movie itself... Though Bala's films so far have had ventured into offbeat stories, and had unique characters (often with some level of neurotic behaviour), at the core of it, all except Sethu are essentially revenge dramas, with some showing death of at least one lead character, offering a very graphic/gruesome climax. I would like to be proven wrong... but I have a feeling NK will be no different in terms of the above commonalities. The hero, pushed to a corner (following the death of a near one) is likely to explode in the climax and brutally kill all the 'bad ones'(Great shock value to audience. The gorier the visuals, the better) and probably kill himself again in a gruesome fashion (or get killed).

"Aham Brahmasmi", the tagline and the English translation of the title has a much deeper meaning. I hope Bala doesn't trivialise it.

Again, I know commenting on the film even before watching it is extremely unfair. Like I said, I would like to be pleasantly surprised and be proven wrong.

raagas
4th January 2009, 07:24 PM
Nan Kadavul is quite impressive."Kannil Paarvai" is the crowning glory of the album, IMO.I could not show much interest in other songs solely because i heard them before (Picchaipaathram & Amma) and that does not mean they have any lesser merit. As days go on,my interest in IR music is more and more centering on "whats the new stuff he is doing?". When i think of that, "Kannil Paarvai" comes out as a clear winner. Here is a song where he plays on his strengths.

and CRvenky - That BGM recording video is simply fantastic. I heard that the director of 'Nandhalaala' is planning to release the backgroundscore separately. After seeing this video, i wished even Bala does he same. Someone, plzzzz try to get this message to him.

it is high time. we have talked enough about backgroundscore capabilities of IR (everyone praises it, even in media...much was written about various BGMs, people and that means not just fans, also talk highly of IR's BGMs.). But we still dont have those great scores released. I reallywish Nan Kadavul and Nandhalaala BGMs come out.

Else, I think there is a software, which extracts Voiceless BGMs from DVDs. We can do something like that.

Seriously, u hav spoken my mind.

I really had that complaint about the interlude. But i have no good, in depth knowledge about this kinda music, especially carnatic based songs! So i kept my mouth shut :ashamed:

But this is what i thought about the song!

The song starts and goes on like a devotional song! As the song progresses to 1st interlude, suddenly i get a feel of listening to a western song :banghead: . The IR goes back to the carnatic, by that solo violin towards the end of the 1st IL.

Dragun,

I completely agree with you. Sadhana and Shreya both are my fav singers, especially the latter!
In Amma un pillai song, sadhana's pronunciation is not so good. Her voice is sweet that definitely adds charm. But the pronounciation for this divine like melodies is not at all good :hammer:
Shreya has done a better job than Sadhana! But still, not apt!
Between these two, i'm ok with Shreya's song but definitely not with Sadhana's rendition :( :cry:

Come on Man, I have zero knowledge in music. Even laymen like us will get irritated to hear that kind of sound in that song, everything else is so good and reminds us 80s IR. He is doing a poor job in selecting the sounds. I think he likes all the sounds in the synthesizer/electronic drum kit and uses them instead of just picking the good ones.

The percussion in the ludes SUCKS (reeks of synth throughout the song) :banghead: Raaja is not going to change this aspect at all :( Lame freakin tin dabba sounds..
Freakin sounds like some cheap instrumental version of Raaja hits one hears in Chettinad restaurants

Coming to think of it..Did he use it Deliberately to recreate the tin dabba/ aluminium plate sounds used by the beggars :)

ennathu shreya pronunciation bad in the song?? Just listen to:
யார்க்கும் போலே விழிகள் இருந்தும் உலகமோ இருளில்

vizhigaL and iruLil especially. Shreya's singing in the song is God awesome. The feel is superb. Unmatchable.

Nerd,

I agree!!! Pronunciation is really good! It is all because of IR!!! :bow:

But, carefully listen to the following lines:

"Kanaavil kooda Inbam" (There is certainly a strain when she sings "in-bam" in Pallavi) :D
Few more lies (just 2 or 3) are like this!! She could have sung it with ease!!!

But, the feel is very very good!!! :bow:

As i said earlier, she is 1000 times better than Sadhana in Amma un pillai!!!

Just imagine Chithra's voice in Amma song!!! :thumbsup: Perfect choice!!!

I dont think this is going to be different from Pithamagan theme.. some anger outburst in a gory way..thats all..

along with it.., Bala's usual Brahmin bashing comedy..
or at least some anti-Hinduism stance..lets see..

Arya's circus in the trailer reminds us of Vikram's in Pithamagan..so nothing in the trailer impresses people like me..

raja_fan,
What at all makes you believe that there would be "at least some anti-Hinduism stance" in 'nAn kadavuL'? Just curious. (Not that an "anti-religion" stance itself is essentially problematic for a film to have, of course.)

I bought the CD last of week but had to go out town. Listened to it today. My views

1. Om Sivoham is an excellent start to such a 'high expectation album'. Vijay Prakash's pronunciation brings in a distinct North Indian touch. The percussion and instrumentation is apt, keeping with the theme of the song. The climax with all the percussions coming together in a bang.

2. Kannil Paarvai is a superb melody. A melancholic melody at that. Shreya sings this well. The interludes are lovely with violins and the bass guitar. A different type of beat. This is typical high quality Illayaraja stuff. Not sure what ragam this is tough. Read someone mentioning this as "Subhapanthuvarall'. Doesn't sound like that. Brief portions of the interludes have a Mayamalavagowla feel but the song is not Mayamalavagowla.

3. Pichai Pathiram, as everyone has said, is the same tune, reused from Ramanamalai. The instrumentation is sparse in the charanams. Only the tabla and the cymbal accompany the song. The interludes are different from the Ramanamalai song. A couple of lines in the second stanza are changed (wrt to the original song as those lines referred to Guru Ramanar) Madhu Balakrishnan does a nice job but I wish they had retained Illayaraja's voice. The feel that he creates would have been very apt here.

4. Amma Un Pillai Naan, a rework of 'Mata Un Kovilil', has Sadhana doing the expected. Singing nicely but killing the language. The interludes of the song seem to suggest that they are intimately linked to what is happening on the screen.

As Rajasaranam had written earlier, here is an album where the music director has completely understood what the film requires and has appropriately provided it. The mood created by this album gives an idea of what the movie will be like. Reminds me of 'Virumandi'.

Definitely the best album for a Bala movie till now.

Just to clarify. The mood of this album doesn't remind me of 'Virumaandi' but the overall effect of the album keeping in tune with the films requirement reminds me of how Illayaraja kept the folk element intact throughout the 'Virumandi' album. In this album Illayaraja keeps a melancholic strain throughout, giving us an idea of what to expect from the film.

well, This is something we can say after we watch the film. We dont know what the film has to offer and if the music really matches it. The music is good and we are assuming that music is appropriate, given the visuals in the posters. Ofcourse, i have never doubted IR's capability in providing appropriate music for the film. It is all the more true, when the film-maker is not the run of the mill kind. So, even i think he gave certain kind of music. Yet, we need to watch the actual film.for now, lets lap up the songs. I still have one complaint though - wish this album had more songs :)

And btw, any update on Nandhalaala? heard even that music will release in Jan2009. also in Jan2009 is "Jaganmohini".

You've spoken my mind. I do believe that the interludes are more for the scenes than the songs. But still, Song-oda flow, mood spoil aagama he could have done it. He is maestro. Isn't it?

What i feel is,
whatever emotions (that come on screen) that have been conveyed thru the instruments (percusions, keyboard) in that interlude, (the same emotions) could have been conveyed using a solo violin, a veenai or mrithangam, which would not have disrupted the mood, flow of the song!

A critical review is not just another mere opinion. At least it ought not to be that way. Though every review is subjective and does get influenced by the author's preferences and prejudices, one reads a critical review not as yet another viewpoint from sundry.
['Should one consider reviews from BW, rediff etc as reviews at all in the first place?' is a different issue]

A critic is supposed to offer view points and insights that we lay persons might not have thought of. Actually, it IS just another view point ultimately, but one that may be more nuanced.

My Quick Review

Though IR is very good in 'Amma un pillai' he didn't succeed the level he achieved previously in Ak our prem kahani, Shiva (hindi) and Cheeni kum. I meant in reproducing his old song again. But I like that song. Om Sivoaham is wonderful song in the genre it sits. It is 'Kannil Paarvai' which is my pick of album since it gives 'the feel' to me.

I wonder how the album gives unique feel though one song (tune) composed some 20+ years before and with another 10 year old song. That is one of the reasons of victory of this album. But at the same time on the whole I am slightly disppointed since no 'Ilangaathu veesuthey' kind of song (I was expected).

I read somewhere NK will have fun scenes same like Pithamagan had. If Bala can put humour why should not give place for a feel free song like 'Ilangaathu veesuthey'?.

raagas
6th January 2009, 05:44 PM
To think of it, I think this film could be just like Pithamagan, but in a different dimension though. the resemblances are interesting. The Lord Shiva link (Pithamagan had link to Lord Shiva.... the burialground link). The rustic, uncouth type of character seems to be common in both films, although in this film it might take a diferent dimension.

ofcourse story will be totally different..but looks like the director took off in an alternate plane, while concieving this film.

ananth222
6th January 2009, 09:49 PM
NK is a great album, but I would still rate "ilangaathu veesudhe" above all the NK songs. I was also expecting more chorus and vocal harmony for this kind of a movie. It gives a great feel in "om sivaom" though its just chanting - maybe more arrangements could have enhanced it further.

Sureshs65
6th January 2009, 10:43 PM
Ananth,

I guess everyone has different requirements from Raja and he probably gave what Bala required :) While 'Illankatru' is no doubt an excellent song, I am charmed by 'Kannil Paarvai'. What an haunting composition. It has been quite sometime since we have got such a superb female solo. This song is something else. I can't stop listening to it.

The orchestration is subdued in the songs. It may be a different thing altogether in the BGM. As of now, listen to 'Kannil Parvai' and say 'Om Sivoham' :)

There seems to be a gender divide here. Among friends and family, the male junta have not stopped talking about the songs. The lades, however, have shown very little interest.

Looks like another song is added to NK album.

"Naan Kadavul's audio album now has a recent addition, a gift of sorts by Maestro Ilayaraja. After the movie's composition was over, Ilayaraja seems to have felt the urge to add another song on Lord Shiva in the movie. The new song penned and sung by the maestro himself, will be featured in the film's title track.

Most of the other songs, written by Vaali, have already won wide acclaim from the music critics and lovers alike. Especially the goose-bump inducing Sanskrit number seems to be on its way topping the charts, aver music buffs. Naan Kadavul is slated for a Pongal release."

Vaalee's verses are filled with meaning beyond the demands of thamizh cinema.
Raaja's music is simple and spell binding.
The music here is not as rich and fun to hear as uliyin oasai.
However like Sethu and Pithamagan - hearing the songs create massive expectations on the visuals - a film soundtrack should be like the camerawork - understated and unimpeding. I can feel the restraint that raja has used to let Bala do his work on screen.

Great start to the new year.

'Velli ChalangaigaL' is raga Chandrakauns (very close to Kalyana vasantham). Another popular song in this raga is 'Azhagu Malar Aada'.

'KaNNil pArvai' seems more like raga 'Rasikapriya' (as in Kovil PuRa's SangeetamE en jeevanE). It's the very last of the 72 Melakartha or 'mother' ragas.

Well said Jaiganes. Fully agree with you.

I always feel that Raja is a minimalist music director. He gives exactly what is needed and doesn't do stuff because he wants to show off. If the director has a clear vision, he ensures that the music enhances that vision and does not subsume it. One case in point is the score he gave for 'Aa Dinagalu' in Kannada. Though the crew was fairly new, he never allowed his music to dominate the proceedings. Instead he ensured that the visuals were enhanced by his score. And what a lovely BGM that turned out to be.

7th January 2009, 07:11 PM
Suresh,
I disagree. Minimalism, underplay, not dominating - overrated and overused terms in fad IMO. Isn't it decided by the theme/subject? Did Raaja give a 'minimalistic' score for Thalabadhi? Didn't he scorch the screen? Didn't he dominate?
It all depends on the film. And i think Jaiganes referred specifically to Raaja's music for Naan Kadavul and not his music in general.
And 'restraint' would be the last word one would associate with "Om Sivoham" :)

I understand your point about him being completely in synch with the director's vision though

7th January 2009, 08:31 PM
Even om sivoham was not over instrumented.
Kannil kinda melody in any other composer's hands would have been an ornate melody - lot of sangadhis by singers, extra melodious flutes and horns etcs, yet raja reigns in and lets the voice do the most talking or singing.
Particularly the place where shreya sings 'dheivame unakku sammadhama?' (what an imaginative, yet simple plea written by Vaalee), I am sure someone else would have let a sarangi loose there.
I heard the songs in Music India online and for such a low audio quality, the tunes came out and caught me straight away. I had always been dismissive of 'maadha un koyilil' this album proved me how wrong I was.
If we look at the lyrics of Kaatril, we can easily guess the story line.
I wish Vaalee had written another set of lyrics for 'Kaatril version of Kannil. My respect for vaalee has gone up several notches - he impressed me with Piraye in Pithamagan and now he has bowled me over. Has proven once again that meaningful lyrics need not be all that 5th floor stuff.

The 'Aiyyanae' did not have the bhaava that raaja gave it.
Same way 'Ammayum appanum thandhadhaal' sounded very flat.
Raaja's rendering was more heartfelt. SPB or KJY would have sung it with the same feel that Raja would have brought to the song.
Not to take anything away from Madu balakrishnan who is a superb singer - this song required less singing - it needed more feeling IMO.

Raj,

What I meant by minimalism is that Raja would do what exactly is required and not more. I was referring to his music in general. If a movie requires that he scorch the screen he would but if a movie requires that he underplay, he would. Minimalism is not to be mistaken for minimal music but as that which is exactly required for the movie. I would say that 'Dhalapathi' or Malayalam 'Guru' required that type of music he gave. You are right. Raja gives music as required by the film. All I am adding is that he doesn't overdo it.

I would agree with Jai and say that even 'Om Sivoham' is restrained for such a type of song. It would have been easy for a music director to have really gone over the top here. I always maintain that Raja is the king when it comes to giving expression ('bhavam') to his songs. 'Bikshai Patiram' is no exception. You may not like Raja's voice but his ability to bring out the bhavam is top class.

All said and done, a lovely album. Can't seem to get past 'Kannil Parvai' :)

Not to take anything away from Madu balakrishnan who is a superb singer - this song required less singing - it needed more feeling IMO.

Completely agree..except for some flat singing by IR for a line (veRum paathiram uLLathu ennidathil ..) in second charanam which the well-trained singer Madhu does not falter with.
I think Karthik/itwofs biased me a little :-) ..I also feel now that the rhythm does not merge with the singing very well in Kannil Paarvai and the IR version.
om sivoham is mind blowing..
(BTW, the raagangal.com encoding of the songs were very bad. It was like sadhana had a pebble in her mouth. It is much better in the raaga.com version and am sure I can tolerate her diction and the synth much better than I thought I could)

Kiru,

I would disagree about the rhythm. I thought it was very good with the song seeming to start an aksharam before the beat. The rhythm merges well with the song. I did read Karthik's comments and I feel he was has got it wrong :)

My 2c on the rhythm of Kannil Paarvai. In my earlier post I must have said one beat earlier and not one aksharam earlier. Sorry about that.

By starting the song one beat earlier than the samam, the emphasis shifts to the word 'Paarvai'. If he had started on the samam, the emphasis would have been on 'Kannil'. In other words, 'Kannil Paarvai' would be what you would immediately recall if the song started on the beat. When he starts one beat earlier, when the first bang happens :) your are hearing 'Paarvai' and what sticks in your mind is 'Paarvai Pona Podum' rather than 'Kannil Paarvai'. Makes more sense. Similiarly, the second line also has 'Eeram Tadumbum Tandumbum' starting at the beat rather than 'Kannil Eeram'. Similarly observe the beat falling on 'Deivame'. So my guess is the start was chosen to emphasize on those words.

Similarly the pattern of beat during the charanam contrasts with the free flow of the song and creates good tension. The song would have lost a lot of charm had he stuck to a normal beat pattern. (Looks like a part of the background beat is tisram. Can someone confirm?)

after a few listens the album has really grown on me. I'm getting attached to Madhu Balakrishnan's voice too. "Pitchai paathiram" is one of the top songs of the album. IMO, MB's voice suits better in this context, has more "force" or "power" and less emotion (compared to IR version) - which may go better with the character in this movie.

it looks like IR has found a suitable replacement for SJ in Shreya Ghosal and for KJY in MB. Now if he finds someone to replace SPB... we are in for a treat!

SVN
11th January 2009, 07:57 PM
Ananth,
Why do we need a replacement for SPB at least as of now? His voice hasn't aged one bit. Sadly, he is rarely heard these days. I am not sure if he has chosen to maintain a low profile or the MDs are not calling him any longer! We, the rasikas are the losers indeed :(

oru kaatril aadum siragu is rasikapriya - Rasikapriya | S R3 G3 M2 P D3 N3 S | S N3 D3 P M2 G3 R3 S ( other IR gems in Rasikapriya Aganthayil Aduvadha - Uliyin Osai - here in the charanams, there is shruthibedham to M.M.Gowlai. Older one is Sangeethame from Kovil Pura...

oM SIVOHAM cud be hamsanandhi...

pitchai paathiram is keeravani, the scale that raja has used in atleast 75 songs ! but still this sounds new (in ramanamaalai as well as in NK)

maadha un kovilil starts mainly with revathi, but quickly meanders to sindhu bhairavi in charanams...

Hi Vel,

Thanks for the raga info.

I am especially amazed at Raja's use of Rasikapriya. It is a raga with two sets of vivadhi swaras and even in carnatic music concerts is rarely sung. Atleast, I haven't heard any major renditions in this raga. To take such a vivadhi raga and come up with such a touching song as 'Kannil Paarvai' requires a genius. We know his capabilities very well and this is just one more instance added to that long list.

In a BBC interview, Illayaraja talks about the sruthibedam from Rasikapriya to Mayamalavagowla, citing 'Sangeethame' as an example. He also says what this technique is called in Western Classical Music.

Our sensibilities are different from theirs. We cannot have common yardstick of tastes. If we had so, many Indian films would have got many international awards. It is not the question of whose films are greater or whatever...but we must accept that our sensibilities are different. What clicked in SDM is that it is different from the usual Hollywood films and that differentiability became 'enjoyable film' for western audience and as numbers went up, it became great.

For us, it is a normal film. A film like Taarein Zameen Par is defnitely a great film for us. But show it to them, they must have seen something similar before.
No point blaming hollywood filmmakers or indian filmmakers, both have their own aesthetics in their places.

Extremely Sorry for digression, but just wanted to put across my thoughts about how we cannot compare different sects (indian vs. Hollywood) because of wide variance in sensibilities. films of Rithwik ghatak appealed a lot to the west but how many people liked them in India? I think we just cannot predict what works here and what works there.

The Sarod piece in the prelude and in the first interlude of "Kannil Parvai" song is a very different stuff to hear from IR. Its great.

On the whole, this song is wonderful.

Thumburu,

I agree that the interlude you are referring (I had to listen again) to in Johny song is way above than this one in terms of expressing the feelings (38 seconds) and innovation, but this interlude (kannil...song), despite being shorter (25 seconds) and simple was effective. By "effective", I mean the bass effect the strings produces (2:45 to 3:02) and the poignant (and eerie kind of) feeling that the interlude overall brings in. Nevertheless, I agree that it could have been better, but at the same time I don't have any complaints.
