The audio of the films “Sooran” and “Vellore Mavattam”

The audio of Arowana Pictures' “Sooran” was released recently at a function that was attended by the bigwigs of the Tamil film industry.

The audio was released by director S. P. Jananathan and received by director Perarasu. K. Bhagyaraj was the chief guest. The film is directed by Balu Narayanan and the music is scored by P. B. Balaji, who had earlier done “Inbha”.

Actor Karan said, “The story is set in North Chennai. It reinforces the fact that it is circumstances that bring out the worst (the sooran) in everyone.” With Karan in the lead, the other roles are enacted by Manivannan, Ponvannan, Santhana Bharathi, Rajkapoor, ‘Ayan' Jagan and yesteryear actor S. N. Parvathi. Two new finds, Anu from Kerala and Shibali Sharma from New Delhi (who has been crowed Miss North India two times), play the heroines.

There are five songs in the film. Two are written by Yugabharathi — ‘Ayyanar Kuthirayilla' sung by Harini is good, while ‘Vaa Mama' sung by Surmuki, Vidyalakshmi and Rita conveys a happy mood. Director Balu Narayanan has written three numbers — ‘Mamanoda Colour' has been rendered by himself. Two others which are pleasant to the ear are ‘Thappae Thappilla', sung by Udit Narayan and Rita, and ‘Ethaetho Matram', a solo rendered by Pop Shalini.

“Vellore Mavattam”

The audio of AGS Entertainment's “Vellore Mavattam” was released recently. Produced by Kalpathi Agoram, S. Ganesh and S. Suresh, the film, featuring Nanda and Poorna, is directed by R. N. R. Manohar of “Masilamani” fame. The others in the cast are Santhanam, G. M. Kumar, Azhagam Perumal and Singamuthu. Sundar C. Babu has scored the music.

Director Manohar said, “The film has all the ingredients to sustain audience interest, and the lead stars have done a good job. Nanda plays a police officer, ably supported by Poorna. The film is all set for release.”

There are six numbers in the album. ‘Adikuthu Adikuthu', penned by Na. Muthukumar in the voices of Senthil Das, Manicka Vinayagam, Naveen Madhav, Manasa and Malgudi Shubha, is interesting. Another well-sung number by Hariharan and Shruthi is ‘Vanam Ellam' written by Kavivarman. ‘Unnai Unnai', written by Thamarai and sung by Krish and Mahathi, is easy on the ear. ‘Party Vandhale', written by Ezhil Arasu and sung by Shaan, is highly entertaining. Anitha is at her best singing ‘Kannal Parkurathum' penned by Viveka. The last number in the album is the instrumental version of ‘Vaanam Ellam' — Martyn on the saxophone does a good job.
