Music review: Puthiya Mugham (Malayalam – Deepak Dev)

Posted by Karthik

The highlight of Puthiya Mugham is Prithviraj’s vocals in Kaane kaane and the actor passes the singing test with flying colors – the suddenly soaring tune by Deepak too helps generously. The mellow, Charukesi-like Yedhukula murali is fabulously tuneful while Shankar Mahadevan completely rocks Picha vecha naal mudhal – a stunningly simple and imaginative tune, adorned with beautiful classical interludes. Thattum muttum and Rahasyamaai are commercially routine, though the former is quite catchy. Sweety Pie Darling is just middling, with Prithviraj merely speaking his lines, along with Suvi’s hip-hop. The first three tracks are enough to recommend Puthiya Mugham’s soundtrack!

    Hey Karthik, funny i dont see the review of Saaral by Benny Dayal, Sanjeev Thomas and Gopakumar. An infectious listen I think.

    A friend of mine who is a Carnatic music singer was really overjoyed to hear the wonderful use of raagas in Picha Vecha, and to hear Shankar croon it is really a delight. Kaane Kaane is the other tune that stands out – for some reason the first few lines sound familiar – and the marked ebullience is a delight.

    As annoying as ‘Sweety Pie’ is, it’s kinda stuck on my head 🙂 Thinking this one had an opportunity to be worked into a more strikingly hiphop number!
