Kirumi (Music review), Tamil – K

Posted by Karthik

OC soru is a straight-to-the-point and earthy gaana sung by—who else!—Gaana Bala, but the simplistic tune holds gems by lyricist Gnanakaravel, like ‘Nayanthara kooda ninnu, selfie onnu edthukinu, aaya podum scene ellaam viral aagudhu’! Naanal poovaai has a curiously ethereal sound (that becomes even more evident and interesting in the karaoke version!) and K uses the vocal interplay between himself and Janani to beautiful effect. Naa parakka is almost a Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy song – twangy rock with some fantastic guitar work and harmonica peppered through, sung well by G V Prakash Kumar. Vaal veesum is almost Santhosh Narayanan – dips into Mexican folk music to produce a tantalizingly slow burner of a song that gains immensely from Gaana Bala’s impeccable rendition. There’s more of the stylish guitar in Boom boom boodham, a punchy, booming Wild West-style tune that Yazin Nizar confidently breezes through. K closes the soundtrack in style with Orayiram ottaigal that he chooses to sing himself and he holds the grungy sound of the song mighty well, even while layering it with scorching guitars. Kirumi’s soundtrack surpasses K’s recent soundtracks by a mile and almost acts as his comeback in Tamil, with its polished sound and thoroughly engaging tunes!

    Mexican folk?? I will have to start listening to that now… I like this track from this album!

  • Say Something

    Liked Naanal Poovai and Vaal Veesum.
    Bang on with the latter reminding of Santhosh Narayanan.
    Rest of the songs are just so-so [won’t listen again].
    200? Really..??!! I’m not saying anything 🙂

    Naanal Povai sounds fabulous. Dissapointed that K goes On & Off with his Music though. But very promising.
