Mahabalipuram (Music review), Tamil – K
Aathadi yenna solla seems like a dream combination of K’s impeccably beautiful tune-smithing – very Imman’ish too! – and his fetish for violins that he displayed so beautifully in Yudham Sei. K ropes in Imman himself for Usure nee, another haunting melody that he excels in rendering along with Shaktishree. Aanandha thendral has an Ilayaraja’ish sensibility in its simple and likeable tune, while Sethey ponendi is a middling melody plus rap mix. Kudiya vidu‘s hip-hop kuthu mix too barely works. Composer K wipes out his Onbadhula Guru black mark with just the first 3 songs, thankfully getting his form back.
