Vallinam (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S

STR gets ample support from Thaman to smoothen his off-key singing in Maaman machan, even as the soaring guitar elevates Viveka’s friendship-extolling lyrics. Uyiril uyiril is a punchy, captivating tune, thanks to Thaman’s orchestration and Haricharan’s effortless singing! Thaman’s reprise version is a fabulous listen too as it unravels the tune in its bare minimum, […]

Pyaas (Music review) – Pop – Jal The Band

Goher’s comparatively weak vocals are obvious in tracks like Dil haari, Udd jaana and Tanhai, but the band props them with impressive tune and excellent orchestration! Tanhai’s slow album and remix versions are good listens too! Tu muskura and Dil ki baat offer sappy, trite tunes, despite the neat guitar support, while in Ik arzu […]

Aaja nindiya works marvelously as a spooky lullaby! Sangeet’s singing is top-notch; so is Kumar’s fantastic verses! Its jazz verison, Koi jaagi, is Anahita Kumar’s show; with her quivery drawl, she nails this one. Aatma theme, using this tune again, showcases the Haldipur brothers’ imaginative orchestral nuances. The foursome girl-group – Alyssa, Anusha, Shefali and […]

Adutha paruppu is kuthu banter in line with the film’s heavy-duty lampoonery. Vijay Prakash, Velmurugan and Mukesh seem to be having solid fun singing it! The parody tone is intact in Kuppai thotti, a so-called romantic duet with mighty interesting lyrics by Karky and a tune that occasionally hints at Shanmugapriya (and Chala Nattai, as […]

Shadow (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

The title song is glitzy sound with a catchy rhythm enveloping it in Thaman’s usual style, while Gola gola and Pilla manchi, despite neat vocals by Ranjith and Ramya, and Rahul and Suchitra, are largely boring and familiar! Geetha Madhuri infuses life into Naughty Girl with her spirited item’ish singing, but the bizarre tune is… […]

Ghore pherar gaan‘s pulsating pop-rock sound works big time because of Vishal Dadlani’s flamboyant vocals; how many languages will he sing in? After Andar Baahar’s Kannada debut, this! Arijit Singh’s Din khon mapa ache is the soundtrack’s highlight – spritely calypso in Bengali! Brilliantly sung and with even better orchestration by Indradeep. The composer offers […]

Farida is the pick of the album – it offers a fairly complex tune for Abhijeet to sink into and holds its guitar and keyboard-loaded backdrops really well, thanks to composer Harpreet Singh. The bridge between the antara and title hook is particularly lovely, as is the free-flowing tune! Harpreet’s other song, Aao morey piya […]

Top recent listens (February 2013)

Idhuvare njan, Azhakolim mariville, Kannivasantham & Chendalire – KQ (Malayalam – Stephen Devassy) To be honest, I had no idea who Stephen Devassy was, till I had made an entry in my ItwoFS website about a musical piece of his being used by Vidyasagar as a prelude to his song from Raman Thediya Seethai – […]

Engineering is a drab, mindlessly old-fashioned college track. In Jagada jagada, Sunil mashes remixes of Ilayaraja’s iconic numbers to reasonably good effect. Silambarasan has another, noisier version of the same, titled Simbu’s Power Mix. Vennelamma is an over-wrought melody with excessive everything, while Sri Jyothi steals the show in I am sorry vinara – cutesy […]

Nee mayalo is a thumping victory for both the band in-charge of music and the singer, Saindhavi – one gorgeous tune beautifully sung! Ennalli dooram‘s techno-pop sound is adequately catchy with Hema Chandra and Amrutha Ravali doing a good job with the vocals. Modh Irfan isn’t that effective, however, in Vadhili polene, even as the […]
