Thondan (Music review), Tamil – Justin Prabhakaran

Posted by Karthik

The title song is yet-another generic high-pitched call for some cause. Chellakutti joraa, like Justin’s Ethithu veetu kaliflowere (Raja Mandhiri) has a gently playful and retro’ish touch, with a particularly imaginative nadhaswaram-thavil mix, but for a middling tune. Poi varavaa‘s maudlin medley drones on, but in Vaikom Vijayalakshmi’s voice, Vaasamulla poovaa makes for a haunting and soulful listen, with composer Bijibal’s young daughter Daya ending it with a twist, by singing a lullaby! Pradeep Kumar rocks the exuberant Ettoorum kekkum, with a lively percussion and interestingly imagined chorus-enabled anupallavi. After recent highs, Justin’s music in Thondan is relatively less impressive.
