Yembuttu irukkuthu aasai and Semma joru – Saravanan Irukka Bayamaen (D.Imman)


Mira mira, Laage laage, Yelo yedarilo and Emo emo – Katamarayudu (Anup Rubens)

Hamsa naava and Saahore Baahubali – Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion (M.M.Keeravani)

Ela ela – Velipomakey (Prashanth R Vihari)
The entire soundtrack of Velipomakey is quite interesting, for a debutant. The sound is resonant and there is a spark. Ela ela is the pick of the soundtrack though the bubbles up among the other songs thanks to Kamalaja Rajagopal and Karthik Rodriguez’s fantastic singing and the way composer Prashanth infuses that Shanmukapriya raaga phrases mid-way.

Jingidi – Guru (Santhosh Narayanan)
That one new extra song not in the Tamil or Hindi version of the same film (Saala Khadoos/Irudhi Sutru). Venkatesh sings this himself and the tune is good old Santhosh – easy funk!

Ghumshuda – Rogue (Sunil Kashyap)
Given that Puri has now resigned to doing films like Loafer, Ism, Jyothi Lakshmy and Temper, his music sense has gone out of the window too. He ropes in Sunil Kashyap for Rogue and the man produces a trainwreck of pointlessness. The one hope is the surprise Hindi song, Ghumshuda, sung by Chinmayi! The somber, mildly Latino sound and Chinmayi’s voice, coupled with that lone violin makes this song totally worth the listen!

Daggaragaa raavoddilaga – Vaisakham (DJ Vasanth)
DJ Vasanth is the kind of composer that I cannot afford to completely ignore. He does have something interesting somewhere in his soundtracks. In Vaisakham it is Daggaragaa raavoddilaga that comes with a cool sound and a tune reminiscent of Nilavai konduvaa (from Vaali). Ramya Behara aces this song with her vocals.


Hrudayavaathil, Aromale and Chakkikkochamme – C/O Saira Banu (Mejo Joseph)

Ethetho and Vaadaathe – Avarude Ravukal (Sankar Sharma)

Chinthicho nee – Sathya (Gopi Sundar)

Promo song – Take Off (Shaan Rahman)
This song doesn’t even have a name! For all the good word the film’s garnering, I really wonder why the makers seem so hesitant in releasing the 2 songs it has properly, even if it doesn’t feature in the film (which is beside the point anyway). This one’s good old Shaan, since he sings it himself too. That thrumming rhythm sound is totally alluring!


Aalisu baa, Belakendare and Manasina – Raaga (Arjun Janya)

    It’s a matter of pity & shame that talented hindus like Raghavendra Raja Rao have to use non-hindu stage names like Sean Roldan in hindustan,rest either sickularism &/or nepotism

      If you bring religion into the discussion again, I’d need to ban you from this forum. Could you please take and discuss religion in some other place where it is appropriate?
