Aaru Sundarimaarude Katha (Music review), Malayalam – Deepak Dev

Posted by Karthik

Riti Muthoot and Saptaparna’s vocals sound enticing in Ask Me, which, with its fascinating 80s pop sound makes for a fantastic listen! Ponoonjalil‘s tune is simply breath-taking! Deepak lets the mesmerizing tune play for itself with minimal orchestration – reserved for the interludes – and with Chithra at the helm, this is a knockout melody! Chithra’s solo is great too, as is the other version where G Venugopal and Kalyani Menon (in a superb Vaavavo piece!) join Chithra. Kannin aayiram too is a great listen – catchy tune, with very Deepak Dev’ish funky sound. Short, captivating soundtrack from Deepak Dev!

      Yes! Specifically, some one-hit wonder that couldn’t place my finger on. Names like Cindy Lauper come to my mind, but that’s not quite it – there’s some female artist that I’m missing now whose sound seems very similar to this one. I love the song, but!
