Vaada vaada is loud and raucous in an enjoyable way; rhythmic and superbly sung by Rahul Nambiar. Iru idhayam sernthu is that melody that the composer is known really well for – brilliantly orchestrated with a lilting sound and really well sung by Karthik. Oru thuli is yet another example where Vidyasagar proves credentials with […]

Mudhal mazhai and Vizhiyile vizhiyile are tunes that are too steeped in familiar templates to make a significant impact – passable melodies at best, both. Rowdy girls is all faux attitude and bad accent. Saregama and Ghani Khamma (in Hindi, by Hindustani singer Meghana Dandekar!) are short, melodious and interesting. Kaadhal indha kaadhal is where […]

NW1W. Keywords: Shootout at Wadala, Anu Malik, Anand Raj Anand, Mustafa Zahid, Adnan Sami, Meet Bros Anjjan

Okkatai okkatai soars in Haricharan’s solid vocals! Its chorus holds a lot of punch too, while Thaman adds it all together in his style really well! Manasa manasa‘s classical base (Mohanam Hamsadhwani raaga?) is thoroughly endearing; Mallikarjun Rao and Vardhini deliver it with the care it deserves, even as Thaman adorns is beautifully fusing drum […]

Top recent listens (March 2013)

Pusher Love Girl, Suit & Tie, Tunnel Vision, That Girl, Let The Grove Get In & Mirror – The 20-20 Experience (Justin Timberlake) If there was one (Western) album that I was most impressed in recent times, it is this one! Justin Timberlake’s new album is what we’ve all experienced with Michael Jackson was around […]

Maro janmae is short and energetic! Ossina bangaram starts off like any Thaman song, but strangely takes on Devi Sri Prasad-style undertones with the music echoing the hook repetitively – catchy nonetheless. Yevvaru leranni’s templatized tune again has Devi’s trademark more than Thaman! Ee parikshalo thannaku‘s pathos is so old-fashioned that it barely works, while […]

Mithoon’s contribution, Tum hi ho is absolutely beautiful – Arijit’s solo, the duet with Palak Muchhal and the theme. Ankit Tiwari’s Sunn raha hai too is wonderfully impactful, with superb use of guitars and saarangi; Shreya’s version is filmy, sacharine-sweet, but. Jeet Ganguly owns the rest of the music which is strictly patchy and repetitive. […]

Suda suda‘s techno backdrop seems jarring for the tune, but James delivers an ace in Maamanukku ennadi, sung by Nancy, Vasudha and Sarayu – a wonderfully endearing tune (Aabhogi?). Mala mele is a throwback to the filmy ‘tribal’ sound and Palani Ammal and Mahalingam’s fantastic vocals helps the song enormously. The composer sings Viraivil vidiyum […]

Indrodu‘s highly enthusiastic and energetic sound is addictive; Srinivas and Ramya deliver Vaali’s verses with verve! Gana Bala’s Ora kannala is earthy and thoroughly enjoyable gana, but made better by the composer in the arrangements. Vaa iravugal is high on techno, but with patchy vocals and tune. The soundtrack’s highlight are the two immersive melodies […]
