Kavi Uddheshichathu (Music review), Malayalam – Jakes Bejoy and Vinu Thomas
Vinu Thomas seems unduly inspired by A R Rahman in Innaleyum – the song could easily fit in En Swasa Katre’s soundtrack; and then there’s that humming evoking Roja’s Chinna chinna aasai! Jakes opens his account with the energetic Nerunde nerunde, with the chendai backdrop ruling the song. In Kuyilin paatinu, Jakes’s choice of veteran Jayachandran seems to have misfired, since he takes—and goes himself—down the reasonably engaging tune. The last song by Jakes, Paisa paisa, is a middling affair, using a staid-old and obvious rhythm, though he does sing it well. Kavi Uddheshichathu’s soundtrack is more derivative than anything.
