Dora (Music review), Tamil – Vivek-Mervin
There’s a whiff of early Rahman in Engapora Dora, particularly in the semi-classical twist with the uncredited female humming and the veena-based, most-probably Senchurutti raaga interlude. Vaazhavudu‘s energetic rhythm keeps it spritely! Plus the keys-led interlude and Sanjana Kalmanje’s vocals… lively stuff! Ra ra ra has that energetic sound too, and here it’s literally breathless, in Anirudh’s vocals and glitzy electronic music pointing to a rather generic Vakulabharanam raaga tune. The 5 themes too are diverse and interesting, and make for great listen! Vadacurry, Pugazh and now Dora – Vivek-Mervin’s are definitely onto something, with a consistency that is noticeable.
