Nish Raj is back with the Thamarai’s Track of the Week!
This week I have chosen "Saayndhu Saayndhu" from the upcoming release "Neethaane En Ponvasantham", starring Jiiva and Samantha.
I’m not sure there’s much I can say…the fact that the legendary Ilayaraaja is the man behind the NEP music pretty much says it all! The maestro has roped in his son, Yuvan Shankar Raja, to provide the male vocals for the track, and the the Junior Raja sings in his signature laid-back manner. Ramya‘s voice kicks towards the middle of the song, and though she doesn’t have many lines, she adds a beautiful touch to the track
Though Saayndhu Saayndhu has a modern feel to it, the absence of electronic instrumentation that is rife in a lot of tracks these days is a pleasant change. In true Ilayaraaja style, all the instruments have been recorded live.
With Gautham Vasudev Menon having used Harris Jayaraj, A.R.Rahman and now the Maestro Illayaraja, who do you think he should use for his next film out of these top 3 music directors?
