Thoppil Joppan (Music review), Malayalam – Vidyasagar
Chil chinchilamai is delightfully vintage Vidyasagar… Raja’ish melody, layered with Vidyasagar’s own spritely orchestration. Benedict Shine delivers the Christian hymn-like Manamilla manamode with austerity, while Jithin handles Vidyasagar’s lively and fun short tune in Onpathilage anpathil really well! Chithra is at her best in Poovithalai njan where Vidyasagar beautifully mixes a retro’ish melody on top of a strings-driven opening. Abhirami Ajai and the chorus led devotional, Poovithalainjan is a lovely melody too, again, with that tabla-led retro flavor. The title song is full of swagger and superb rock sound that Niranj Suresh carries in style. Good old Vidyasagar is back!
