Naiyaandi (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Posted by Karthik

Teddy bear‘s arcade games sound, with that mind-bogglingly curious tune that eventually goes zany, mixing kuthu and more 8-bit sounds, is a brave experiment! Ae le le, barring Leon D’Souza’s garbled Tamil (backed by Sundar Narayana Rao, where it matters the most!), is similar in tone to Ghibran’s Kuru kuru (Vathikuchi) and is a thoroughly engaging tune, layered over music that is bafflingly multi-layered. There’s so much happening here – accordion, Sofia Symphony Orchestra… it’s a joy unravelling it! Divya Kumar – despite his Udit Narayananizing of Tamil, is fantastic in Munnadi porapulla! Reminiscent of the complex Rahman-styled compositions, this uses horns/trumpets and morsing to very good effect! Marriage marriage is the only song in the soundtrack that seems conventional – there are occasional interesting cues here, but the overall tune seems forced upon the marriage-themed lyrics. Yendi padhagathi is short and poignant, but the show-stopper is Inikka inikka that goes for the jugular with what seems like a highly interesting usage of Sindhu Bhairavi raga, in the backdrop of stupendous singing by Suzanne D’Mello, Padmalatha and Nivas, topped by scintillating backgrounds, including Sofia Symphony Orchestra! Ghibran proves that he owns the most exciting sound in Tamil, in recent times!
