Playback singer Nivas K Prasanna’s new album ‘Kootathil Oruvan’ features Ashok Selvan and Priya Anand in lead roles, directed by TJ Gnanavel. The film is produced by Ramaniyam Talkies in collaboration with Dream Warrior Pictures with Think Music as the audio label.

The One Theme

Nivas K Prasanna scores brownie points with his first track itself in this album, which has a much convincing work. It all sounds like the best works of Yuvan Shankar Raja’s arrival before few years. The fortepianos, strings and flute that brings up emotions and joy together is what it conveys.

Innum Enna Solla
Singer: Haricharan


A soft, sublime and simple number with beats and composing too that comes with neat and grasping lyrics. Haricharan gives his best with his usual paradigms. The interludes proclaiming the joyful moments of a protagonist has been exhibited through the trumpets and other instruments. The visuals should definitely add up more momentum to this song. It’s almost like a song in unplugged concert barring some percussion.

Nee Indri
Singers: MM Manasi


This is a song that will make you imagine different versions with country’s best singers from Sakthisree Gopalan, Shreya Ghoshal, Shashaa Tripati and why not the reigning queen Chitra. The song has such great appealing element of offering substantial prominence to the voice, where the musical components are milder. MM Manasi enthralls us with her new dimensional voice for we have been constantly hearing sassy numbers. Distorted guitars during the second interlude with the live drums give a stunning impression.

Or Naal Kadhal
Singer: Sathya Prakash


It almost looks like a reprised version of one among the tracks with slow paced tempo, which could get well with the situational placement. Sathya Prakash gives his best, but the instrumentals eclipse his vocalisms. Nivas could have balanced the song with pianos and mild strings, which would have been more appreciable, which would give best results for voice.

Maatrangal Ondre Dhaan
Singer: Nivas K Prasanna


A jovial number that inspires all and it comes with inspiring lyrics too. The simple rhythms on guitar and percussions are good, but it could have reached yet more appealing levels for the lyrics carry more substance than the singing and musical part.

Enda Ippadi
Singer: SPB and Emcee Gonzalez


The combination of singers itself delineates the specific fusion impact that it could offer. SP Balasubramaniam gives his rendition that is always evergreen and ageless. The song has lyrical lines that speak about a man’s irksome moments of nothing best working in life. The rap lines by Emcee are the best pick as well and this song turns to be an appealing one.

The happiness of pursuit

The pianos and chime bells with stringed chords – What else does a music need to offer serenity than these beautiful instrumentals. But then, the embellishing endowments come with the Veena by Rajesh Vaidhya. This would be definitely a trademark music that would be used for many visuals including the presentations that mark the remarkable journey of a person or organizations.

Nivas K Prasanna had delivered commendable number in ‘Sethupathi’ following which he has tried to leap up to next level in his musical journey. Definitely, it’s a decorous work by Nivas K Prasanna that has pretty good songs that doesn’t strain up with heavy and noisy sounds, but simple.

Verdict : A genuine musical album packaged with mild, decorous and simple composing and voices.
