- oru naaL oru kanavu is the latest film by Fazil. His last tamil film was kaNNukkuL nilavu. The film stars Srikanth and Sonia Agarwal. Music by Ilayaraja.
- The film is supposed to be another love story, and the expectations are high given Fazil's track record. Fazil has done films like poovE poochooda vaa, poovizhi vaasalilE that were not romantic movies, but kaadhalukku mariyaadhai changed all that and brought in a new genre of "family oriented" romances. Srikanth and Sonia have had hits recently, with Kanaa kaNdEn and 7/G Rainbow Colony respectively.
- oru naaL oru kanavu has three songs by Sonu Nigam, and a couple by Hariharan and Shreya Ghoshal. After listening to the songs, I thought the album was par for the course for IR and Fazil. The SOTD, kaatril varum geethamE, is the pick of the lot. It is a kalyaNi based song sung by Bhavatharini, Shreya Ghoshal and Hariharan. Bhavatharini's unconventional voice for this classical number will probably turn off some, but I liked the uniqueness that it brought to the song. Given that we rarely see such classical songs thesedays, this is a good attempt by IR. One negative point was that IR hadn't given any importance to the percussion in the song. A tabla loop just goes on and on, not even changing much during the interludes. I wonder why there was no effort taken to create an interesting percussion accompaniment in this song.
