Pencil (Music review), Tamil – G V Prakash Kumar
Javed Ali and Sheya Ghoshal handle the gorgeously slow-burning techno-ghazal combo sound of Kangalilae very well – GV Prakash’s tune is the clear winner here. LED kannala, however, is standard-issue techno-kuthu that fails to engage despite the punchy sound. Tipu is the sole saving grace of Why machi why, another students-song that addresses mighty predictable tropes in equally predictable catchiness. Yaarai polum illa neeyum (and its Reprise EDM Mix), has a nice uptempo sound, but is way too templatized within the lively, happy-pop variety to make any kind of impact. Familiar GV Prakash Kumar fare, barring minor highs like Kangalilae.
