Kangaroo (Music review), Tamil – Srinivas

Posted by Karthik

Shweta Mohan’s languorous rendition props up the gloomy melody in Penjakka, aided no doubt by very-Rahman like orchestration by Srinivas. Ozhakku nilave‘s highlight is Bibin Tuttu’s vocals, a moody tune that picks up as it progresses. The gaana’ish Thaayum konja kaalam, has a simple, hummable tune, while the theme song, by Srinivas himself, is oddly the soundtrack’s weakest. The best, however, is Nenjukkuzhi, a spritely track with wonderfully imaginative lyrics by Vairamuthu, excellent singing by Haricharan and Sharanya Srinivas (than the other version featuring Vijay Prakash) and some mighty interesting arrangement choices by Srinivas! Welcome back* to composing, Singer Srinivas!

Keywords: Kangaroo, Singer Srinivas

*A bit confused as to why Singer Srinivas’ new soundtrack (as a composer) – Kangaroo – is being called his ‘debut’! It’s not even his debut as composer in Tamil – he has composed one song in Vasanth’s Hey Nee Romba Azhaga Irukka (Ini naanum naan illai – a kick-ass song!!), a full-fledged soundtrack for a film called ‘Kaadhal Valarthen’ (a B-grade flick – and a pop album called Ussele Ussele. Not just that – he has composed music for 2 soundtracks in Malayalam too, as solo composer: The Train ( and Seethakalyanam (I recall listening to it, still have the CD, but couldn’t find it in my own site 🙂 ). So, that’s 3 full soundtracks (one in Tamil and 2 in Malayalam) + a single + a pop album! Debut?

    Hi, Srinivas’ debut as an MD was in Tamil, as u rightly said, with a single in “Hey nee romba…”.
    He debuted as a full fledged MD for the malayalam film IVAR (Rajeev Kumar’s 2003 film – they shot the whole film with steadycam cameras). The film had only one song, I think.. (
    He also composed for the Malayalam film LANKA (2006) It had 2-3 songs. Listen to this song.
    Seetha kalyanam etc came later..
