Naadi Thudikuthadi Tamil Movie Songs by Ilayaraja
Directed by Selva
Lyrics By Na. Muthukumar
Music by Ilayaraja
Naadi Thudikuthadi is another obscure film from Ilaiyaraaja. I do not have any details about the film, so let me cut away straight to my thoughts on the album. This one again seems to be a low-key film with no big stars or production houses. The sound canvas, as expected, is more on synth rather than acoustic instruments.
Overall, Naadi Thudikuthadi is a very average fare from Ilaiyaraaja although En Devadai’s brilliance and the melodic quotient in En Poo Nenjai and velinaatu can tilt that. But the listening experience is mixed, empirically speaking. Ilaiyaraaja delivers the goods amazingly well only in En Devadai – the most brilliant one in the album. The other good songs have some misgivings and then, there are songs where Ilaiyaraaja disappoints big time.
