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.

    Justin Prabhakaran’s adiyae azhagae (from “oru naal koothu”) reminds me of some song from around early 2000’s, don’t know which 1 but as far as i remember, i heard it in my childhood so it must b either from late 90’s or from early 2000’s, or mayb that type of tune cud have been quite common those days, anyway, can any1 help?!
