Dhaam Dhoom - Harris Jeyaraj's new offering


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.

I feel sorry for your ignorance of music .Your reviews are ridiculous.

Dear puthumai pithan,

Of course music is a permutation, combination of seven notes. But that doesn't mean that each and every song should resemble some other composition. "Originality counts"

Hey Ram,

Again HJ? Come on mate, we've discussed this b4, hez lifting few notes, but hez smart enough to get around and present in a way that has a lot of appeal, infact the Vaaran aairam promo song, I listen to it every night at home - from ur site ha ha..

hez got his own ways of doing things, the end product is good. As the other bloke (P.Pithan) said, if the entire song is lifted, its arguable, if few notes have been lifted and presented in a manner that has a humungous reach then so be it...who cares, listen, tap ur toes, enjoy d song...

Puthumai pithan & Maverick,

Of course I agree with you that, HJ's music has a magic that attracts all age groups and is soothing to ears.

But lifting here and there and finally arriving at a beautiful song is not something a creator does.

When he has got the talent to create something new and impressive, what is the necessity for lifts?
Remember Thenisai thendral Deva, who was known for such lifts. Where is he now? Do u want HJ to succeed him?
Whoever it may be, Yuvan or Rahman I hate when there is an obvious lift. It drives a hole right through their credibility. And this is my humble opinion. :-)
Opinion differs...

Ram,

Credibility for any creator cannot be justifiable, even our creator, thats why somes times there are twins or lookalikes

but yeah, I dont want HJ loosing track and joining Deva, hope that doesnt happen
