Peranbu Music Review

Just taking a look into the erstwhile albums of Ram and Yuvan Shankar Raja, we are completely floored. Taramani, Thanga Meengal and Kattradhu Tamizh have been bliss to the music lovers and let us have a look on how Peranbu has shaped up. The film featuring Mammootty and Anjali in lead roles is about a father-daughter relationship.

Singers: Vijay Yesudas
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Falling in love with nature is greatest way to rediscover oneself. Such is the essence of this song ‘Dhooramai’. There are few songs that cross beyond the lines of getting analysed for they make you instantly imbibed in it. Each and every line from this Vairamuthu lyrical encompasses so much of exquisiteness and serenity is found in the verses. Yuvan Shankar Raja has done a remarkable work by keeping the sound and music underplayed giving more lucidity to Vijay Yesudas’ vocalism.

Anbe Anbe
Singers: Karthik
Lyrics: Sumathi Ram

The song could be a successor to Yuvan’s previous chartbuster with Ram-Na Muthukumar combination ‘Anandha Yaazhai’. The song has its own treatment of bringing such a honey impact and the lyrical prominence. Much alike the other reference, the song is about a father’s poetic acclaims for his daughter. The instrumentals although are used in mild notes, it adds more beauty to the track. Not to miss the interludes that bring up more charm to the song.

Vaan Thooral
Singer: Sriram Parthasarathy
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A Ghazal blended with the Hindustani raga that lets you get soaked in its mesmerizing touch. A soul’s positivity, where it emphasizes even the fires that pass through burning offers light to few. The Tabla and string works generate a splendiferous feeling. Sriram Parthasarathy becomes the absolute choice of bringing the best touch to the song.

Setthu Pocchu Manasu
Singer: Madhu Iyer
Lyrics: Karunakaran

A desperate need for solace, where the hopes are diminished and what could be the words from this soul. Lyricist Karunakaran has endowed exactly what it feels like from an alienated heart. The musical components by Yuvan Shankar Raja are so simple and yet the composing is outstanding.

On the whole, Peranbu can be regarded as one of the Yuvan Shankar Raja’s best 10 albums till date and forever. He is back with a complete melodious enchantment through this album, where he underplays with the musical ingredients, understanding that the songs in this film are nothing less than a conversation, which needs clarity in lyrics and voices.
