C/O Saira Banu (Music review), Malayalam – Mejjo Josseph
Thaniye is markedly old-fashioned, but Chithra’s incredible handling of the indulgent melody—with a tinge of pathos—is the song’s highlight. Hrudayavaathil is Mejo attempting a Harris Jayaraj’ish song and in Vineeth and Jyotsna’s dependable singing, it is spunky and likeable. On the other hand, it’s Rahman in Aromale – Chinmayi’s singing is fantastic and so is the very-Rahman flute interludes. Kaushik Menon’s male version is an equally good listen. Chakkikkochamme is the soundtrack’s most inventive, tune-wise, with a conversational, faux-classical give-and-take between Yazin Nizar and Sithara Krishnakumar punctuated by brisk backgrounds! After 2014’s Law Point, Mejo makes a decent enough comeback!
