Ennathan Pesuvatho - Imaan speaks gently with his tunes

Listen to Ennathan Pesuvatho songs on Raaga.com

Over the years, D.Imman who has been a passable music composer has transformed as bankable one in the recent years. Though he was delivering at least foot tapping/alluring melodies over the years, it is the full fledged hit of an entire album was something missing from him. The last couple of years are truly amazing for him. He continues his blazing form with this album too.

1. Tholaivil irukum megam Listen here

Singer: Sriram Parthasarathy

This free flowing number carries various instruments to keep the rhythm. Imman makes the best of, Santoor, which is quite a value addition to this pacy melody. Sriram Parthasarathy sounds energetic & he builds up nice pace with the tune which unfolds in every section. A prolonged interlude with, Violins between 1.33-2.03 is worth mentioning.

2. Pennaga Pirathu Listen here

Singer(s): Harshdeep Kaur, Dhilip Varman

Roping Harshdeep Kaur to a carnatic number needs lot of courage. Imman has extracted the best of Harshdeep and ensured proper pronunciation. Penning inspirational numbers is nothing new to Na. Muthukuar. This time around he excels with verses like 'Vazhiyinil aayiram pallangal irundhum nadhi adhai kadakkiradhu.. innum konja dhooram parandhidu penne siragulal irukkiradhu'. Dhilip varman's mild voice suits the mood of the song.

3. Nenje Nenje Listen here

Singer: Harshdeep Kaur

Usually, same tune carries different lyrics to fulfill the need. But, Imman might have decided to deliver a full fledge Harshdeep version alone. She flourished all her emotions throughout to deliver a mind boggling number. Pick of the album.

4. Yaro Yaro Listen here

Singer: Vijay Prakash

The prelude of Piano promises a groovy number, but the tune goes awry. The tune and the composition are completely jaded. Barring the chorus which delivers the title of the movie 'Ennadhaan Pesuvadho' nothing works with this number.

5. Adada Adada Listen here

Singer: Aalap Raju

The cordial guitars & Aalap's vocal are very infectious. Imman tries a Latino fusion and succeeds to a great extent. The song expresses a lot of happiness via its lyrics & from the instruments. The flute part that comes at the end of the song is absolutely brilliant. Na. Muthukumar stands out once again with verses like, 'Illakkinai adaindhinda neruppunil kulithidu'.

6.Sabke Vinathi Listen here

Singer(s): Nivas & Vandhana Sriram

A very short prayer song rendered by, Nivas & Vandhana Sriram separately. Both have done good job to evoke a peaceful ambience with their vocals.

Pick(s) of the album - Adada Adada, Nenje Nenje
