Kireedam – Foot-tapping and entertaining
Music: GV Prakash
Direction: Vijay Anand
Released: Juin 2007 (Audio)
Kreedom is the next big release after Sivaji and everyone is waiting for the release of this family drama starring Ajith and Trisha. G.V.Prakash made his presence felt with his very first album and when he joins hands with ‘Thala’ Ajith Kumar, it is sure to spark curiosity.
Lets see how the young G.V.Prakash fares,
The very first song starts with an impressive note and G.V.Prakash shows his mastery over slow paced romantic song. Inspiring orchestration, smooth and romantic sounds make this number a treat for all the fans of Ajith. The singers Sonu Nigam & Swetha do their work with perfect élan. A sure chart buster.
Rating – 4.5/5
The starting notes do give one a deja vu feel with Harris Jeyaraj’s compositions. This number is sung by a proud father about his son which just follows the usual path with nothing new to offer but rich lyrics do make the song a good one to hear. The sounds used in between lighten up the track. Jeyachandran and Karthik do their job; overall an average track.
Rating – 3/5
– Vilayaadu Vilayaadu
This is the opening song of Ajith. It does have a peppy feel but still the sound is a little on a higher note and the rhythm is very much similar to some of the kuthu songs of the past. In the middle the sounds used though innovative is very harsh on ears. Shankar Mahadevan sings the song with his usual charm. A track that will satisfy Ajith’s fans.
Rating – 2.5/5
– Akkam Pakkam
Sadhana Sargam is back with this slow number which is about the fantasies of a lover. Even though the rhythm and feel do remind us about her super hit ‘Snegidane’, the music director uses the sounds to good use. The lyrics too have a major hang over of Snegidane. Yet the final outcome is satisfactory.
Rating – 4/5
– Kaneer Thuliyae
A R Rahman looms over this number of G.V.Prakash which sounds a lot like Kanathil Muthamittal and Uyirae put together. Vijay Yesudas does justice to this track. Getting inspired by the legend of Indian film music is natural for any upcoming music director and it is more justified in G V Prakash’s case as he shares the family genes with Rahman. However when one finds his own touch it aids the song to stand out. And G.V.P does find some success in that.
Rating – 2.5/5
– Kreedom Theme music
The start impresses the listeners but the flow is lost soon and when it is regained, it is a bit too late. It is a valiant attempt by the music director to add a theme song which has a running time of four minutes as it is quite rare in Kollywood. The final outcome is satisfactory, but Hindi music lovers can easily recognize the source of inspiration of G.V.Prakash.
Rating – 3/5
On the whole G.V.Prakash does a neat job but shows his uncle’s effect on his music more than once. But as he is in his start up phase of his career, great things are expected from this young music director very soon. A decent buy.
Overall rating – 3/5
