Adhe Kangal (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Posted by Karthik

Idho thaanaagave sees Ghibran go hard-rock with a vengeance, almost like a sitar-infused Blaze of Glory (Bon Jovi) even as Yazin Nizar rocks the high-powered rendition! Its variant, I Have Nothing is a slow-burner R&B that’s foot-tapping, complete with Jah Hill’s gibberish verses.Ponapokkil has an elfin charm, and even segues into an unusually retro anupallavi and highly interesting interludes. Thandiraa has an instantly alluring tune; Rajan Chelliah’s lead vocals props the song while Ghibran’s tune veers off in imaginatively uncomfortable directions. The Adhe kangal theme builds on Thandiraa impressively, into another dimension. Curious, unconventional music from Ghibran, as always.

    Excellent album. Had lost hope in Ghibran until I heard this one.

    The work Ghibran has put into “Idho Thaanaagave” and “I Have Nothing” is absolutely brilliant. It didn’t hit me till the third listen that they have the exact same melody, but the orchestration and presentation differentiates them completely.

    Seriously fantastic stuff by Ghibran.

      Good point… something I missed completely despite 15+ listens of the whole soundtrack and had to listen to again to get it. Added that note.
