Mundasupatti (Music review), Tamil – Sean Roldan

Posted by Karthik

Ambala singam has a showy tune and orchestration, not to forget the kick-ass chorus! The tune, at its base, is vintage Ilayaraja, but with a more showy pop sound and Sean’s raspy vocals to go with it! Idhu enna and Kadhal kanave are those mandatory nods to Santhosh Narayanan, but Sean seems to have significantly spruced up that sound. The former’s solo vocals by Pradeep is particularly brilliant! The latter is a wonderfully pleasant duet featuring Pradeep and Kalyani, with fabulous, Rahman’y flutes usage backed by mesmerising violins. Killadi oruthan‘s tune and lyrics are aptly folksy while the fusion orchestration strikes a rich balance between authentic folk and the more modern sound, to back Anthony Dasan’s earthy voice. Rasa magarasa‘s tune is steeped in the 80s Tamil film template, but the bluegrass’y sound puts a beautiful new spin to it! Both the versions – duet, featuring Rita and Sean, and Sean’s solo versions are punchy and thoroughly engaging! Vivek Narayan’s Uchiyila udhichavane is short, authentic Tamil folk, with the usual Sean Roldan twist in adding an ambient sound layer to it. Like Santhosh Narayanan, Sean Roldan is truly on a roll with his inventive spin on conventional Tamil film music.
