Thiri (Music review), Tamil – Ajesh

Akka maga is Deva 2.0 gaana, with a significantly more modern sound. Gana Vinoth’s blistering rendition outplays S.P.Raja Sethupathi’s vocals in the other version, Kannu Rekha. Uravey is absolutely gorgeous, with that awesome ‘Oru kadalil vandhu sernthaal’ line! Sathyaprakash’s version is considerably better than Thilak Anand’s reprise. Yaavum needhaaney‘s charukesi-raga base makes it an easy win, but that also renders it too familiar. Vaetta pen vaetta falls flat, with its obviously-item-song template. Thaman’s Dhillirukku tholodu has a catchy, inspirational hook, but the generic Middle Eastern sound is a downer. Ajesh’s Paambhu Sattai spark is intact but in a limited dose.
