Masss (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Posted by Karthik

Therikkudhu masss is a curious melange; it has likeable pieces like the thavil base being used in two different backdrops, but as a whole, it’s bewildering. Premgi’s remix has its work cut-out and delivers a pulsating dance track. Naan aval illai‘s base melody is likeable enough, but its build-up is ho-hum, while Poochandi‘s street-smart funk sound is layered with a tedious tune. Vaikom Vijaylakshmi-led Piravi has poignant verses by Madhan Karky on birth, death and everything in between, set to a soulful, soaring tune. The 2 themes merely pass muster. Masss is the weakest soundtrack among all Venkat Prabhu-Yuvan combos.

    Yuvan disappoints! Had pretty high expectations from him!

    hopefully visuals will boost the songs

    Nice catch that Mass’s Poochandi‘s street-smart funk sound is layered with a tedious tune. That tedious tune is sampled from Oruvan Oruvan Mudhalali from the OST of Muthu by A.R. Rahman. It seems the new rhythm can never eclipse the original tune of the Madras Mozart and one can gauge the current TFM industry as There’s just one! There’s just one Maestro/Music storm! and the rest of the TFM directors are just content with sampling/recycling of Maestro/Madras Mozart.
