I always look forward to release of a new HJ's album. He gives due respect to the lyrics and music does not dominate the words. With good recording quality,not being loud and noisy, Harris songs have a special kind of magic and reach the audience of all age group.
"Dhaam Dhoom" is the fourth directorial venture of Jeeva and its really sad that he is no more. "Dhaam Dhoom" songs are not in the league of the previous HJ-Jeeva combo , like 12B, Ullam ketkume and Unnaale unnaale.
If you are ready to forget the inspiration sources such as the prelude of Swadesh's 'Yeh Tara', Ratchagan's 'Kaiyil midhakkum' and "Bombay theme", you will enjoy the "Aaliyile" song by Haricharan. Being a slow paced melody number, a lot depends on the picturisation to tie the audience in place. The lyrics with pure tamil words are definitely commendable.
"Anbae en anbae" crooned by Harish Ragavendra is a typical HJ song with his stamp all over. A clean melody with soothing background and is a winner.
"Sakiye" enhanced greatly by vocals of Bombay Jeyashree and Krish is interesting and instantly likeable. "Thikku thikku" again brings back flooding memories of many Rahman's and HJ's older compositions.
The famous Ketchup song is being reworked as “Pudhu Pudhu” which is a toe-tapping number sure to be lapped up by youth. Bored with lifts from Rahman’s and other international albums, looks like HJ has decided to reuse his own "Andangaakka" from Anniyan in "Uyyalaalo".
With each song reminding us of some previous compositions, Harris Jeyaraj gives wonderful exercise to our memory.
1. Harris Jeyaraj does it again!
