Maan Karate (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh
Maanja is a funky mix of that trumpet-thavil combo, Anirudh’s nonchalant singing and Karky’s very-Medraas Tamil. Bhangra-dholak dominates Darling dambakku, a rather perfunctory masala song where Benny and Sunidhi carry the song, and a reprise that seems even less effective. Un vizhigalil is swanky, tuneful pop, produced well with confident singing by Anirudh and Shruthi. Sivakarthikeyan and Paravai Muniyamma bring Chennai’s roof down in Royapuram Peter, a raucous kuthu that satisfies the feet and the folded tongue. It’s heartwarming to hear Deva in Open the Tasmac, singing Gana Bala’s evocative ode to Chennai’s ‘matter’ destination. Maan Karate is minimum-guarantee Anirudh.
