Oru Indian Pranayakatha (Music review), Malayalam – Vidyasagar
Omana komala seems to be using a classic Kedaram raaga base and is instantly likeable, in Najeem Arshad and Abhirami’s pitch-perfect vocals! Saajan attempts what is possibly a Rajasthani-styled song in thick Malayali-accented Hindi, while G.Sriram’s Valedukkanum blends satire and mock humor in the retro-styled tune and lyrics combo admirably well. Shyamameghame sounds more like what Sathyan would have got Raja to compose from him, but Vidyasagar matches footsteps beautifully, ably supported by veteran Chithra, to produce a gorgeous semi-classical melody set to Gowrimanohari, a lovely and thoroughly dependable raaga. Sathyan Anthikad’s first outing with Vidyasagar is definitely a success!
