Raghava Lawrence had managed to create a huge fan following base for his ‘Muni’ franchise with the grand success of ‘Kanchana’, scenarios turned more favourable for the film’s brand. Now with ‘Kanchana 2’ already creating the right kind of hype, the songs have surprisingly released this evening. The album has four music directors that include SS Thaman, Leon James, Ashwamithra and C Sathya. Raghava Lawrence, Taapsee and Nithya Menen have played the lead roles and Sri Thenandal Films is releasing it worldwide in April.
Music: Leon James
It looks like the song will be happening at the most crucial part of this film. The rendition by Haricharan exactly delivers the situational element with excellence. The musical score by debutant Leon James is the most exhilarating part of this song with chorus especially making the song more appealing to our senses.
Singer: Shakthisree Gopalan
Music: Leon James
Lyrics: Ko Sesha
As you start listening to this song at the first time, you will never feel like going to the next number. Mark our words, you would keep unceasingly listening to this track over and again, for such is beautiful vocalising magic of Shakthisree Gopalan. Perhaps, this could be the best after she rendered her magnum opus debut ‘Nenjukulla’ from Kadal. The lyrical lines by Ko Sesha are the most beautiful icing of cake here.
Singer: Jagadeesh Kumar
Music: C Sathya
Here comes the ‘Sangili Mungili’ style song and it’s a fun filled celebration with the lyrics having an easy grasp into our senses. If you’re really puzzled up about defining the word ‘Sillatta Pillatta’, don’t worry, Raghava Lawrence gives you the best explanation by the end of song. Playback singer Jagadeesh Kumar has done a remarkable job here by shifting the paradigms in different tones and octaves. Music director C Sathya of ‘Engeyum Eppodhum’ fame has composed the song with the perfect style that will doubtlessly capture the mass audiences.
Singer: Chitra, Sooraj Santhosh
While ‘Vaaya Veera’ had a magical touch by Shakthisree Gopalan, this song has a different style of elegance by Chitra. Sooraj Santhosh deserves special mention for carrying even the highest pitch of songs with decorous approach.
Singer: Master Sriram Roshan
The album wraps up with a bit song that has the slow paced yet terrific song ‘Moda Moda’, which is almost like a song we hear in the Hollywood horror movies. The style of composing by Ashwamithra is uniquely unparalleled and the outstanding intonation by Master Sriram Roshan would gain more intensity with the situational placement in the film.
Overall, ‘Kanchana 2’ album doesn’t disappoint us as on whole and outperforms the previous instalment ‘Kanchana’, which was completely composed by Thaman. The album comes with different musical genres and they instantly grab our attention.
Verdict: Decent attempt by four music directors
