Bairavaa (Music review), Tamil – Santhosh Narayanan
Varlaam varlaam vaa is Vijay’s own Neruppu daa! The swagger is intact, and the lyrics aptly eulogises the star. Nillayo layers the breezy hook onto the very-Santhosh strings, though Vairamuthu’s ‘silicon silayo’ could mean entirely something else. Barring the foot-tapping kuthu in Papa papa, and interestingly bluesy notes in Pattaya kelappu (where Vairamuthu alludes to demonetization!), both songs are pedestrian. The soundtrack’s best, Azhagiya soodana poovey, is not only wonderfully sung by Vijaynarain and Dharshana, but Santhosh adds an unpredictable and cool Jackson’ish retro-pop sound. Santhosh, who balanced his sound with Rajini-needs in Kabali so well, seems unsure in Bairavaa.
