Jeyam Kondaan's music is unoriginal

Vidyasagar is back on the musical scene with Jeyam Kondaan (The Victor), a Tamil film produced by Sathyajyothi Films. With six tracks, here's what this romantic collection has to offer.
First up is Naan Varaindhu Vaitha...sung by Hariharan and Madhusri. Written by Yugabharathi, this song is composed of simplistic musical phrases with classic touches. The beautiful raga of Suddha Dhanyasi flows, reminding you in places of the Madhurey song, Kanden, Kanden but you relish this raga that lends itself so well to romantic interpretation. The lyrics describe the emotions of the lovers, presumably upon falling in love, and the joy it brings to their lives. Melodious and catchy, this number is easily the pick of the album.
And that seems to be the general tone of the whole album. Barring the first number, the rest all seem to follow the same established romantic/pacing patterns -- notes you've heard many, many times before.
