Isai music review

Staring : SJ Suryah, Savithri, Sathyaraj

Director : SJ Suryah

Music : SJ Suryah

Production : S. Subbiah

SJ Suryah’s Isai is becoming an interesting film to watch out for, after the release of the trailer which garnered some attention. The music of the film released today, let’s take a look at how it sounds.

Puthandin Mudhal Naal Idhu : Singer – SJ Suryah, Lyrics – Madhan Karky

With a catchy tune at the start, this song goes on to become a grand listen. The beats and the electric guitar blend pretty well with SJ Suryah’s hard vocals, finishing on a compelling note.

Isai Veesi : Singer – Chinmayi, Lyrics – Madhan Karky ( PICK )

Here comes the best track in the album. Chinmayi’s vocals are the USP of this number which has a watery aura all around. The lyrics are another asset, making this a hauntingly beautiful one to lend your ears to.

Atho Vaanile Nila : Singers – Karthik, Chinmayi and Deva, Lyrics – Madhan Karky

Although the beat at the beginning sounds similar to ‘Nila Adhu Vanathu Mela’, this track is a listenable one thanks to Karthik’s and Chinmayi’s vocals. Deva’s bit towards the end is a pleasant surprise.

Nee Poiya : Singer – Vijay Yesudas, Lyrics – Madhan Karky ( PICK )

SJ Suryah’s attempt to make a track in pathos turns out on the greener side. With minimal instrumentations and matured rendition from Vijay Yesudas, Nee Poiya is a moving number.

Dirty Dancing : Singer – Shalini Sing, Lyrics – Shalini Sing, Georgia Sing

A pedestrian kuthu song with unimpressive vocals and lyrics. Skip!

Themes : Singer – Chinmayi

SJ Suryah comes up with three themes, with are belted with impressive instrumentations and controlled vocals from Chinmayi at the background.

SJ Suryah’s Isai is a mixture of impressive sounds and tunes. The composer must be praised for keeping the orchestrations within control and offering good space for his singers to take charge. Isai is a neat debut for the director/actor as a music composer.

Verdict : An impressive and interesting debut!
