Chennai 600028 II: Second Innings (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Posted by Karthik

Soppana Sundari spins around Goundamani’s iconic Karagattakaran dialog, but the enthusiasm seems rather forced. The remix is a decidedly better, with punchy electronic sounds. The Boys Are Back is all swagger and electronica, with an easily hummable hook. House Party is no different – ‘homely’ techno-TASMAC song, with addictive hooks and Senthil Dass’s enthu vocals. Barring Khareshma’s Yuvan-style Tamil (Sean Roldan makes amends!), Idhu kadhaiya is gorgeous and immersive! Yuvan reserves the soundtrack’s best, Nee kidaithai for Haricharan and Chinmayi – a foot-tapping melody with catchy folk percussion! Well-rounded, better put-together soundtrack in the 2nd innings, compared to the first.

    could you elaborate on what you meant by ‘better put together soundtrack compared to the first’?
