|7aum Arivu Music Review|
7aum Arivu audio was launched officially yesterday in Chennai's Trade Centre amongst the cast and crew of the film and with a huge entertainment factor added, as there were dance performances by Bollywood actress Isha Sharwani, actress Rukmini, Abhinaya, Lakshmi Rai, Anjali and the event launch show was hosted by Jai and Anjali.
The trailer of the movie was launched by actor Dhanush and the chief guests of the audio release were Dhanush, KS Ravikumar, Karthi, Sivakumar, Director Sasi, Arulnidhi, Udhyanidhi Stalin, Shruti Hassan, Director Vijay and the villain of the movie Johnny Tri Nguyen graced the audio launch.
The first song of the album of 7aum Arivu "Oh Ringa Ringa" sung by a list of singers -Roshan, Jerry John, Benny Dayal & Suchitra and the lyrics have been penned by Pa. Vijay.
The first song in itself is a let down, as the song is similar to Harris Jayaraj's composition 'Aga Naga' with a mix of 'Dhikku Dhikkuennu' and Rahman's Taxi taxi. The fast paced number with a western touch, to give that 'rappy' feel, gets bored on the first listen.
But with the song's visualization it is sure to enthrall the audience, as this song was shot in Chennai's various location with more than 1000 dancers. This would be the hero - Surya's introduction song in the film.
The second song from the album is "Mun Andhi" sung by Karthik and Megha with the lyrics of Lyrics – Muthukumar. Yes the combination of Harris-Surya-Karthik is back with AR Murugadoss also incldued. The songs with this combination had always been a hit.
This number when compared to their previous numbers, is more a feel good slow romantic breezy number. This combo always surprises you and this slow number will be more appealing on frequent runs on your play list. Kartik with his voice on a melodius romantic number is as always mesmerizing.
The third song is "Yellae Lama" with the vocals of Vijay Prakash, Karthik, Shalini & Shruti Hassan and with the lyrics of Na. Muthukumar. Nothing much to say about this song, except that Hosanna fame Vijay Praksh sounds different with this number. This should be the duet song between Surya and Shruti Hassan where the two sing together on a stage.
The next number is the pathos pick of the album. "Yamma Yamma" with the lyrics of Kabilan is a sober song sung by SP Balasubrahmanyam & Swetha Menon. The song is a slow number, which showcases the tragic love story and failure.
The next song is ' "Innum Enna Thozha" with the lyrics of P Vijay and sung by Balram, Naresh Iyer & Suchith Suresan is an motivational song. You obviously get reminded of Harri's previous outing Ko songs. But this song is a bit slow and is not a youth motivation like Ko's number. This song seems like a inspirational song to a person sung by his clan of people, who has to rise to be a hero to make some changes with a new strength and power.
The last number is the music of "The Rise of Damo" a Chinese number with the lyrics penned by Madhan Karky in Chinese and sung by Mandarin singer Hao Wang. This song was much hyped during its composition. The music sees a mix of carnatic tunes added to the chinese notes. The beginning sounded very similar to the Rhymes of children, yet the Chinese instrumental music seems cliched.
