Puli (Music review), Tamil – Devi Sri Prasad
In Yaendi yaendi, Devi Sri Prasad hands Vijay and Shruti a lilting melody that has his stock tune written all over it; it works, for its charming simplicity. Jingiliya cleverly upgrades the age-old tribal song sound into a more pulsating, catchy variant. Sottavaala stretches the familiarity a bit too much, with a staid template and cringe-worthy lines like, ‘KaNNaale garbam seiyyadhe’! Mannavanae mannavanae and Manidha manidha‘s booming, ambitious sound couldn’t mask the ennui their tunes evoke, while the title song, despite minor respite in terms of Mano’s comeback, is painfully jaded. Largely tedious soundtrack, in true Devi Sri Prasad style.
