Nil Gavani Selladhey (Music review), Tamil – Selvaganesh

Posted by Karthik

Nadamadum sudukada has interesting orchestration, but is mostly exaggerated. Paarvai undhan has Vasundhara Das’s enticing vocals and a Yuvan-like alluring tune making lovely use a repetitive chorus’ish phrase. Vaanam engilum is a decent listen; predictable tune, but imaginative arrangements. The soundtrack’s stupendous highlight is Vaanavillum, an almost-Raja’ish tune that beautifully apes many of the veteran’s trademarks – minimal, catchy rhythm; that thakida thakida background; and a tune that evokes late 90s Raja in its anupallavi and charanam. The intermittent flute and sudden tune shifts does bring Rahman’s style too! After the mighty disappointing Drohi, Selvaganesh redeems himself more than adequately!

Keywords: Anand Chakravarthy, Dhanshika, Selvaganesh

PS: On 2nd thoughts, Vaanavillum sounds a lot like Raja’s Vetri Vizha number, Vaanam Enna Keezhirukku!
