Kammatipaadam (Music review), Malayalam – John P.Varkey, K, Vinayakan
Para para‘s haunting, distant and hymn-like prelude paves way to the mesmerizing para para hook that is as impactful as a new-age version of the Mahishasura Mardini Stotram, Aigiri Nandini. John Varkey’s orchestration is top-notch! His other song, Chingamaasathile has Anoop Mohandas breathing life into a retro-style melody, but set to a spanking new, ambient sound, with lovely guitar by John himself. John’s guitar adorns composer K’s Kaathirunna pakshi njan too, a delightful melody that Karthik handles like a pro. Sunil Mathai and Savio Laz brilliantly handle Puzhu pulikal, Vinayakan’s punchy and soulful composition. Kammatipaadam’s soundtrack is thematic, and resonant.
