Aasamela aasa vechu seems tailor-made for Simbu; along with Malavika, he delivers Vaidhhy’s fast-paced kuthu number with his usual panache. Iswarya’s young, child-like vocals elevates the predictable rhythm and tune in Chinna chinna, while Kadhal sei‘s techno mix is impressively catchy. Kanavaa kanavaa‘s tune is likeable enough, but with Vandhana going, ‘kanava’ (dream) instead of […]

Maayakkaara manmadha is familiar material from Mani Sharma; his usual well-crafted melody and this one seems to border Madhyamavathy raaga too, to good effect. Its remix is a pulsating listen too. Suchitra’s funky vocals is the only thing that stands out in My name is Chandrika, while Thada thada too is absolutely outdated in every […]

Aadu annatha makes interesting use of saarangi in what’s essentially kuthu and gains spunk in anupallavi, with Velmurugan leading it in his usual style. Aavaaram povukkum‘s Aasaya kaathula ambitions are apparent, and Megha is impressive in the vocals. Sanjana Divaker Kalmanje is fantastic in singing the piano-led melody of Natta nadu iravula, even as GVP […]

Premji gets the retro sound perfectly in Anjathey, thanks also to Hemambika’s vocals. Hemambika continues her form in Kanne, with Premji handling the quasi-retro sound that cleverly uses modern words to funny effect. TL Maharajan pulls off a Thyagaraja Bhagavathar spoof impressively in Sriranjani. The title song has a glitzy, almost-Yuvan’ish sound and Ranjit delivers […]

The title song has Ramya Behara screaming her heart out to emulate a Bond theme style song. Sweekar Agasthi’s vocals prop up Gola cheddame, a passably catchy, street-smart tune. Kunal Ganjawala powers Kadha mudirega, a racy number with punchy rhythm and funky electric guitar. Masugudu is that standard-issue kuthu every Telugu soundtrack mandates, but Sagar […]

Aathula oru kaal is the usual love-failure song, with the extra frills like ‘sathaku sathaku’! Athana azhagayum is zingy pop, with a cool rock ‘n roll mid-segment and a lady being compared to a mosquito (“don’t chase me like Korukkupettai’s mosquito)! Ditto with Thaedi odunaen, Aalaap Raju breezing through the likeable melody. Azhaga aanazhaga‘s mock […]

Hitman – May 16, 2015

Originally published in The Hindu. ‘Jendapai Kapiraju’ Kick 2 (Telugu) Music: Thaman. S Thaman’s soundtrack for the first Kick was very popular and he does a good job in the sequel too. He usually has a standard sound that he rarely moves out of, but in Kick 2 he seems to be trying something different. […]
