Biriyani (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Posted by Karthik

The title song is full of curiously interesting sounds topped by the whistle-like flute usage; the hip-hop mix Yuvan creates with Tanvi, Bhavatharini and Vilasini is equally intriguing… and alluring! The hip-hop mix in Nahnh na nah works even better – familiar Yuvan-style catchiness all the way, again with some interesting choice of instruments/sounds! Its Jack Swing mix is superbly foot-tapping with its cool lounge’ish sound, while the Extended dance mix completely mauls it in Hindi film remix style! Yuvan conjures up a lovely, showy stage musical style package for Pom pom penne, sung impressively by Ramya and Rahul Nambiar. The seductive Mississippi is strongly – and pleasantly – reminiscent of Ilayaraja’s 80s songs – pitch-perfect, as if Vikram’s Vanithamani prelude (by Kamal Hassan) was sung by Karthi and Premji as a full song, with Priya Hemesh for company! Run for your life too is a kick-ass mix headlined by Psycho Unit’s rap – wonderfully racy and using Gana Bala in that retro style sound is a highly inventive move! Edhirthu nil, sung by four composers – GV Prakash Kumar, Vijay Antony, Imman and Thaman is an energetic pep-up number that works mighty well! Yuvan’s 100th deserves Milliblog’s 200.
