Music: Harris Jayaraj
Label: Sony Music
Harris Jayaraj has conjured up some magical tunes and compositions for the six songs in director K V Anand’s Ko. The films deals with the life of a press photographer, his friends, parents and above all else, his romance with a girl on whom his camera never gets a clear focus (played by Jiiva and Karthika). The songs are composed to take into consideration the situations in the film and consequently, the lyrics are written with a lot of meaning.
Haunting melodies like Ennamo Yeadho sung with much feeling by Aalap Raju, Prashanthini, Sri Charan and injected with rap by Emcee Jesz and Venpaniye sung by Sriram Parthasarathy and Bombay Jayashree compete with another track Netri Pottil, rendered by Naresh Iyer. In this track, Karky’s lyrics provide the intellectual stimulus, just as Pa Vijay’s words in Venpaniye. Hariharan fails to work his magical voice to good effect in Amali Thamali but the song gets resurrected by Swetha Mohan and Chimayi. Two other compositions – Gala Gala by Tipu, Krish, Haricharan and Sayanora Philip and Aga Naga by Vijay Prakash, Ranina Reddy, Priya Subaramani and Solar Sai complete the album.
In most cases, the picturisation will lend to the complete experience of a song. But, in the case of Harris Jayaraj’s compositions for Ko, at least three songs are standalone super hits. With Anand’s vision as an established cinematographer turned director, the visual treat expected from the film is expected to be outstanding.
