Avatha paiyya‘s incredibly pleasant melody is instantly endearing – Yasin and Vandana’s vocals is one big reason, besides the gorgeous percussion that adorns it. Sengaade‘s elongated prelude portends an archaic pathos tune and Madhu Balakrishnan starts singing in line too; but the song has superb vocals and impactful lyrics. Or mirugam is the best orchestrated […]

Puthagam (Music review), Tamil – James Vasanthan

Shaktishree Gopalan gets a chance as good as Chinmayi, in Kannathil Muthamittaal and she delivers brilliantly. I believe the song’s orchestration will be vastly […]

Aaiyo re is a lovely ‘rain song’ with Leslie’s guitar playing peekaboo with the gorgeous North Eastern flavor. Janabe ali sounds like new material from Wham! and is catchy in a quirky way. In Ma ma re, Hariharan flexes his vocal prowess while Leslie adds his awkward Indipop at inopportune points. Kaise samjhaye‘s highlight is […]
