Lafangey Parindey (Music review), Hindi – R.Anandh

Posted by Karthik

Anandh takes up rock and Indian’ness in equal measure with seasoned ease for the title song; Ronit’s lead vocals and the backing chorus are extremely effective. Mohit Chauhan’s Man lafanga is stuff of Vishal Bharadwaj’ish allure – breezy, guitary and delightful. With its folk-rock sound, Dhatad tatad is highly infectious, but it is Nain parindey that rules the soundtrack! Anandh’s tune is breathtaking and Shilpa’s vocals breathe life into it beautifully! Even the instrumental, Born to fly, is impactful, but Suraj Jagan’s Rang daalein takes its 80s pop/rock base too seriously and goes overboard. Welcome solo filmy debut by R.Anandh!

Note: Please stop wondering who R.Anandh is. He is one of the composing trio, AGOSH (Anandh, Gopal and Shaleen) who debuted in Malayalam, with Nirnayam. They went on to compose for films like Mazha peyyum mumbe (Malayalam), Shakti, Harischandra, Kodeeswaran (Tamil), Zor (Hindi) and Paisa (Indipop). And, I’m glad it took one adman-turned-film-maker (Pradeep Sarkar), to bring Anandh into films again. Anandh’s most popular composition is, of course, the Limca jingle!

Keywords: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Deepika Padukone, Piyush Mishra, AGOSH, Agosh, R.Anandh, Limca, Nok Jhok, Gopal Rao, Shaleen

Enjoy!

    Dhatad tatad is actually an inspired version from the famous song Raam ji Ki Nikli Sawari from the movie Sargam. Please listen to the same to find it yourself.

    Mazhayethum Munpe (Not Mazha Peyyum Munpe), released in 1994. The album was credited to Ravindran and Anandh (Not AGOSH). In NIRNNAYAM too, ANANDH has SOLO credit. I believe same is the case of Sakthi.

    A Bharathiraaja film called ‘Siragugal Murivadhilai’, also had music by Anandh, but the film got shelved after a couple of songs were shot.

    Talent-wise he is around 70% as much as ARR. Beautiful composer!

    • bukowskinerd

      The classics from MEM are composed by Ravindran. Nirnayam is alright. Nothing special though. 70% of ARR? Really? I really like Anandh and this album, but lets get real here.

      • kishore prakash

        Of course. Take his original jingles for ads. Considering the variety of genres he has fiddled with, he is 70% as versatile as ARR. Also, taking the ‘arrangements aspect’ alone, he is definitely 70% ARR. During the early 90’s, when ARR started off, (Roja times), Anandh was the only composer who could match his textured instrumentation.
        Considering the melody too, Anandh is not bad! ‘Manassu Pole’ is my favourite song from Mazhayethum Munpe, despite the presence of three evergreen Raveendran songs in the album. En Mizhikkullil Nee from Nirnayam too was a classic.
        Also listen to the song ‘Naan Iruntha Kovile’ from Koteeswaran. The background score of Nirnayam too, was the best during its time. Of course, Lafangey is one of his weaker albums.

        I am grew up as a diehard fan of ARR, living with soundtracks like Thiruda Thiruda, Rangeela, Dil Se etc…. So I am not being biased here. It is a common myth that, no one can match or surpass ARR (Like how, people believed Ilaiyaraaja was invincible, before ARR stormed in).
        I love ARR from the bottom of my heart.
        Anandh is 70% ARR.. But yes, someone else has to surpass ARR, and that time is not far distant.
        Wait and Watch… No more comments… Signing off bro 🙂

          Exactly… He’s really a hidden gem…If you hear “Manassu poale paayum nadhi” from Mazhayetthum munpe, you’ll realize how versatile this man is for his technical rendering and melodious sense. Remember, it was 20 years back. Hats off Mr. Anandh..may more people realize your true potential..

      • Kishore Prakash Menon

        Mazhayethum Munpe has a total of 6 songs!

        3 songs composed by ANANDH – ‘Ladies Collegil’, ‘Manassu Pole’ and ‘Swarnapakshi’

        3 songs composed by RAVEENDRAN Master – ‘Aathmavin’, ‘Chicha Chicha’ and ‘Enthinu Veroru’.

        The background score of the movie was composed by S. P. Venkatesh.

  • Kishore Prakash Menon

    Anandh was given solo credit in Mazhayethum Munpe (Malayalam) for 3 songs [Manassu Pole, Swarnapakshi and Ladies Collegil) and Nirnayam (Malayalam – All songs and background score) .|

    So, Lafangey Parindey is the third film where he is given solo credit.

  • Karan Raj Deo
