Sakhavu (Music review), Malayalam – Prashant Pillai
Madhumatiye is quite and earworm, with its reggae-meets-retro charm, and sung particularly well by Shreekumar Vakkiyil, with a distinct nasal twang that amps up the old-worldly feel, and Preeti Pillai. Bijibal and the chorus—and Anwar Ali’s word-play—ace the pulsating propaganda song Lokam ennum, while Udhichuyarnne picks up the pace steadily, amidst the street-theater style music, with lively singing by Sithara Krishnakumar and Vaikom Vijayalakshmi. Theyyum thindaka‘s hypnotic, intonation style tune is instantly catchy, along with the captivating folk percussion, brass and guitar fusion, though the baby is definitely not going to sleep with that short an Aarariro. Rich, thematic soundtrack.
