Chikku Bhukku

Chikku Bhukku Music Review


Chikku Bukku’ is a Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited film by Majestic Multimedia Limited. Mediaone is the banner which produced the classy action film ‘Dhaam Dhoom‘ last year which was also spoken for its music and songs by Harris Jayaraj.

This film, directed by K. Manigandan, former associate of late director Jeeva, has Aarya, Shriya Saran and debutante Preetika, the younger sister of Bollywood star Amrita Rao, in important roles

The music is composed by Colonial cousins Hari & Leslie. This is their second film after ‘Modhi Vilayadu’. The album has seven songs. Two songs and the background score were composed by Pravin Mani, who is a longtime associate of AR Rahman.

Chikku Bhukku Listen here

Artist(s): Benny Dayal, Rahul Nambiar, Maya, Sree Charan
Lyricist: Pa. Vijay

This must be the intro song of the hero in the movie. With its naughty ‘Tanglish’ lyric and hip-hop rhythm the songs is lifted up by the vocals of Benny Dayal and Rahul Nambiar. The techno grooves clearly remind the music directors belong to Indipop genre.

Oru Nila Listen here

Artist(s): Shankar Mahadevan, Chandreyee Bhattacharya, Uma Padmanabhan
Lyricist: Vaali

Opens with Tamil chaste greetings by Uma Padmanaban and then Shankar Mahadevan invites with his flavoured voice.  The delightful tune has utter north Indian beats and rhythms for the background that alienates you a bit. But Shankar Mahadevan and Chandreyee Bhattacharya and a better lyric manage to salvage. Repeated listening may increase the life of this song much like early ARR songs. Pick of the pack.

Zara Zara Listen here

Artist(s): Benny Dayal, Lavanya
Lyricist: Pa. Vijay

Zara Zara is fast, energetic, youthful, electronic beats. Must be a travel song where hero and heroine cover some distance together singing this song. Peppy throughout but what does Zara Zara mean in Tamil guys?

Smile Listen here

Artist(s): Suchith Suresan
Lyricist: Pa. Vijay

The Latino feel in the song sounds different. This song is to bring the upset girl friend back to her good moods. Guitars accompany most of this casual song which is fresh and vividly colourful. The relaxed tempo suits well for this song. Singer Suchith Suresan has done well.

Thooral Nindralum Listen here

Artist(s): Hariharan, Wadali Brothers
Lyricist: Vaali

Opens with a prosaic invocation of love. The singing begins with supportive vocals in a Sufi Qawali stye by Wadali Brothers. The chorus gives a period folksy feel reminding the songs of recent ‘Madaarasapattinam’. The tablas and flutes unleash predictable rhythms. Hariharan puts life into the songs with his melodious voice but the Wadali Brothers nullifies his effort. Wonder why so much Hindi lines are added to this song? Is the heroine Shriya is from Punjab in the film?

Vizhi Oru Paadhi Listen here

Artist(s): Adnan Sami, Sujatha
Lyricist: Vaali

Adnan is great for his Hindi numbers but for Tamil he is still not ready. It’s not a techno trance song where words hardly matter. A very good melody somewhat spoiled by Adnan Sami though the brilliant Sujatha tries to save it. Very poetic words in the song elevate the romantic thoughts. This song would have been one of the most cherished melodies of the year had it been sung by a seasoned Tamil singer. Colonial Cousins have missed a great opportunity.

Adi Saarale Listen here

Artist(s): Pradeep Vijay, Suvi
Lyricist: Pa. Vijay

This song is the only pure romantic duet in this album and the shortest. Rain songs usually lend a lot freedom for all to experiment with their creativity and this song is one to prove.  Starts slowly to reach the high notes and then meanders touching many different interesting rhythms. Multiple violins show the many shades in love and loneliness.

To sum it up, the Colonial Cousins have done better than their first film ‘Modhi Vilayadu’. But still they aren’t able to touch the right chords in Tamil. They still like to play around with their Indipop style that made them stars up north. With a Hindustani Hariharan and the Western Leslie this duo could have done much better.  One good thing in the album is that you can infer the situations the songs will be placed in the film.
