Director Ram and Yuvan Shankar Raja had delivered impeccably pleasant and heavy punch of emotional numbers in their erstwhile albums – Kattradhu Tamizh and Thanga Meengal. Their third association titled ‘Taramani’ features Vasanth Ravi and Andrea Jeremiah in lead roles.

Yaaro Ucchikilai Meley
Singer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

The search for a soul, love and life! When they all answer back to you, that’s a joy you find that will remain everlasting, forever and ever. That’s the intriguing part of lyrics by Late Na. Muthukumar in this song and it gets a justified composing by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Unn Badhil Vendi
Singers: Siddharth, Sruthi S

So simple, natural and it immediately gets your senses soaked up. Thanks to Yuvan for finding a better choice of singers like Siddarth and Sruthi S. The portions involving actor Siddarth is so much appealing for he doesn’t strain up much. The Carnatic vocalized portions in few parts by Sruthi S is the cherry pick out here.

Unnai Unnai Unnai
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja, Sruthi S

This song is almost like a slow poison and it would surely have its toast of touch within your senses through the times. Yuvan Shankar Raja and Sruthi S make a wholesome treat with their rendition that is so much mellisonant and heart touching.

Kaadhal Oru Kattukkadhai
Singers: SuVi, Rita
English Rap Lyrics : SuVi

Yet another philosophical song and such number would be usually rendered by a male protagonist, but then it’s a different version as we get it from a girl. It is evident that the film has equal prominence to female as much as the protagonist. But it isn’t such a peppy number that comes with the techno beats and what the situation the song is placed could offer better solution.

Oru Koappai..
Singer: Andrea Jeremiah
Additional Vocals: Priya Hemesh
Harmonies : Srivardhini, Priyadarshini, Surmukhi, Anitha

This song might take some time to brew up into the midst of crowds, but there is something unusual, where the track touches the inmost felt words of a girl’s broken heart. The lyrical values are more and yet it would take some time, maybe with visuals to get more imbibed. Or else, the entire song is best in all aspects…

Singers: Mukesh, Senthildass, Yuvan Shankar Raja

Most of the Sufi based Qawali tracks have its realms beyond religions and any barriers, because it speaks of more human values and communion with god preceded by confessions. This track is one such illustration, but a choice of polite rendition by better singers like Javed Ali or Haricharan would’ve done better justice to the song.

From The Bottom Of Our Hearts
A Dedication from Ram & Yuvan Shankar Raja

The album ends on an emotional note where director Ram and music director Yuvan Shankar Raja share their wonderful and nostalgic moments spent with Late lyricist Na. Muthukumar. Yuvan Shankar Raja narrates how he met Na. Muthukumar for the first time and director Ram on his own diaries.

Although, we might have perceived ‘Taramani’ as yet another ego based love story with the clippings from teasers, this album offers a clear impression that there is something more emotional beyond our presumed imaginations. It’s a splendid work by Yuvan Shankar Raja, where the first three songs in the album get our attention immediately.

Verdict : Yuvan Shankar Raja’s musical emotions and Na Muthukumar’s lyrics bring it up all to your attention.
