Sathya (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

Posted by Karthik

As soon as the first interludes led by the strings start in Chinthicho nee, you know you are in a Gopi Sundar song! Gopi makes fantastic use of Vaikom Vijayalakshmi’s versatility, particularly in the anupallavi, given the lovely semi-classical lilt most probably alluding to Kharaharapriya raaga! Kaattingathi vegam, sung by Sri Sankar, however, seems like rather generic use of Vakulabharanam raaga. Sithara Krishnakumar’s Chilankakal is even more classically inclined and rides on her vocals sans enhancements. Njan ninne thedi, coming so close to Harris Jayaraj’s Halena, and sounding a lot similar, is disturbing. Barring Chinthicho, oddly muted soundtrack by Gopi.

Keywords: Sathya, Gopi Sundar

    *Njan ninne thedi, coming so close to Harris Jayaraj’s Halena, and sounding a lot similar, is disturbing*, seems Harris dsturbs u even in ur sleep & also in ur dreams, lol, or maybe u r dsturbed whenever u feel there’s any element related to harris jayaraj about any song although u use words like raja-ish(if song has ilaiyaraja elements)/rahman-ish(obvious from name)/amit trivedi-ish/pritam-ish/yuvan-ish, etc comfortably but as soon as it is harris-ish, it bcomes dsturbin for u, rofl

    Interesting to see you credit Halena as the inspiration for Njan Ninne Thedi. I think they’re both disconcertingly similar to the actual inspiration – Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen.

      Aware of that, but to me, it sounded more closer to the derivative Halena than the source.
