London Bridge (Music review), Malayalam – Rahul Raj & Sreevalsan Menon

Posted by Karthik

Chinni chinni‘s predictable sound also has a prominent piece that sounds like Prem jal from Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai! The London Bridge theme too merely passes muster, but Rahul leaves his stamp in his last song – Kannadi vaathil! Haricharan’s vocals, the slow build-up leading to the punchy hook… all work perfectly! Sreevalsan gets Shaan to sing a true-blue Malayalam film tune in Ennum ninne and he does rather well, backed by the mod sound. Sreevalsan’s other, Venmegham too is a good listen, like a significantly better Harris Jayaraj song! Sreevalsan Menon is on top of this bridge.

    Shocking review! Especially the comment on ‘London Bridge’ theme, which is easily one of the most brilliant orchestral pieces heard in Indian Cinema. The epic feel of James Horner and David Arnold is everywhere in this haunting piece. Hats of to the composer.

    I don’t understand a single word in the lyrics, but completely in love with the soundtrack, especially Kannady vattil.
