Veppam (Music review), Tamil – Joshua Sridhar
Minnala pudikkara seems more like something from Harris’ repertoire, but when he was really sleepy, while Raani naan is indescribably ordinary! The short title song is well composed, with good lyrics and a pulsating tune. With shades of popular hip-hop sounds and a sedately pleasant tune, Karthik and Sricharan’s Katril eeram makes an impact. But, a rather non-descript, melancholic tune adorns Mazhai varum arikuri. Clinton and Shweta’s Oru devadhai is reminiscent of Joshua’s better days in Tamil – the soft, lilting ballad is adequately pleasant and sing-along’ish. Joshua seems to be continuing his struggle in Tamil, Veppam is just functional.
