Music review: Pazhassi Raja (Malayalam – Ilayaraja)

Posted by Karthik

Aalamadankala mythavanalle with its dramatic Islamic sound makes excellent use of chorus vocals, while Aadhiushas sandhya poothathivide takes a classic Ilayaraja tune to a newer level with that dreamy, expansive orchestration. Ambum kombum’s tribal sound takes on an interesting hue as the tune drifts into a pattern unique to Raja, while the short Mathanganana plays out straight with no frills. The soundtrack’s highlight rests in its enchanting melodies – the Sangeetha-Chandrasekar duet, Odathannil thaalam and Chithra’s atmospheric, Kunnathe konnakyum – the latter, in particular, has stupendous display of Raja’s simple, yet captivating rhythms. Pazhassi Raja has a thespian-styled, thematically rich soundtrack.

Keywords: Mammootty, Sarath Kumar, Padmapriya, Kanika
