Enakkul Oruvan - Music Review

Enakkul Oruvan - Music Review
Cast: Siddharth, Deepa Sannidhi, Aadukalam Naren
Director: Prasath Ramar
Music: Santosh Narayan
Production: Thirukumaran Entertainments

Enakkul Oruvan is the Tamil rehash of the Kannada film Lucia which turned many heads. Santosh Narayan was a part of the original too, and he will take care of the musical department in the remake. So how high is this one?
Singers: Siddharth
Lyrics: Muthamil
The starting loop makes you wait for the actual start of the song. A tricky, drippy trip of loops heard throughout the song. You're not listening to Abba or Daft Punk. This is Santhosh Narayanan. A hallucinating track with lots of highs and lows. Surprise factor? Siddharth renders some professional singing. The blues type’s guitars, violins and the bass lines make this an electronic-retro classic.

Endi Ippadi
Singers: Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Ganesh Kumar Krish
Starts off with a head banging jive and world class bass playing. Santhosh always finds a way to make simple songs extraordinary. He also takes the time to sing for this song. Highly accessible tune, foot tapping beats and easy lyrics. Vocal parts in the BGM and subtle rhythms work big time. His La pongal days are helping to churn differently sounding hit songs. Kanjira comes for a nano-second in the whole song and please be proud to notice it.

Poo AvizhumPozhudhil
Singers: Pradeep Kumar
Lyrics: Vivek
The classic Pradeep and Santhosh. Give some time and space to this song, it'll grow into you. Guitar strumming in the background and the voice harmonies are total pleasure. Subtlety at its best. En moochi ninaivile part is the catch.

Kutti Pochi
Singers: Manicka Vinayagam
Lyrics: Muthamil
This song has lots of music in it, meaning, the heavyweight technical treatment of the song. Bringing Ramesh Vinayagam is a relief. Supposedly a progressive, soft-folk number, more on the lines of a band like song.

Singers: Dhibu Ninan Thomas
Lyrics: Vivek

A symphonic track with equal contributions from brilliant singing, electronic beats and piano sessions. A mood based song that can calm you down.
Santhosh Narayanan adds yet another unconventional album to Tamil film music ! - Behindwoods

Pick(s) of the album – Prabalamagavey, Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil, and Endi Ippadi - Indiaglitz

The first three songs are the highlights, after which the album dips a bit and ends decently. Though his music is starting to sound similar, Santosh puts the right things at the right places which deliver an enchanting experience by the end of it all. - Siddarth Srinivas
