Here our take on the recently released Adukalam.

The film is based upon true story that occurred Madurai in the 1970s.

Navin Iyer’s with his instrumental special although a cheerful track, it’s a short piece, a lot has been inspired by the Irish tunes noticeably the rhythm section.


Almost bring you the waft of cool breeze in the air, only possible by SPB who adds a magical touch to the song. A folk song’s new avatar.

En Vennilave

The best in the album .There a melancholic tinge to this track.

Imagine the loss of a loved one. Spine chilling, this song steals the show. Worth a listen, two listens, three listens… keep counting.

Otha sollaala

A familiar folk number. Expect the ever so popular dhum kita, ta kita,,,,tha kita, tha kit ta.

Porkkalam & Warrior

Just count the number of words sung in 5 seconds, you won’t be able too, its rap! Get it? Not even a track the average rap listener would prefer. Just a song that whisks past you and you don’t even feel like coming back to it. A poor effort here, sometimes I wonder why Indian music is suffering by composers who love to Westernize  our music forgetting our roots, why haven’t people thought about getting into our roots and bringing them out than copying some culture that they can’t relate to.

Yaathe yaathe

Although a lively track, the song isn’t as striking as it was meant to be, the chorus is good, the ghatam loop sounds good and saves it from the monotony.

The songs are not as convincing as expected, although you may lie to go back to the ballad which has worked out great thanks to KK and SPB.
