This week’s track of the week is from upcoming film "Ethir Neechal." The film stars Siva Karthikeyan, a former South Indian TV anchor who shot to fame after beinig a contestant on Jodi No. 1. The star was recognised for his comedic brilliance and impressive dance skills, and was later seen as the host for the show one year later. From there on, the actor was recognised by directors and producers in Kollywood and had film offers knocking on his door.
Ethir Neechal is produced by actor Dhanush. (You might remember Siva Karthikeyan acting as Dhanush’s friend in "3"), and Dhanush’s close friend Anirudh Ravichander has scored the music for the film.
The track I have chosen from "Ethir Neechal" is "Boomi Enna Suthudhey" sung by the music director himself. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that this is the next Kolaveri, the song is definitely one that will be remembered by all. It’s a nice slow gaana track with a youthful twist to the melody and vocals to keep it as urban as possible without swaying too much into the "koothu" genre.
Anirudh has definitely kept his standards high since "3" and has brought a very unique style of music to Kollywood, as can be seen by the Ethir Neechal soundtrack, which has been well-received by Tamil music fans.
