Ondu Motteya Kathe (Music review), Kannada – Midhun Mukundan

Posted by Karthik

Chanda avalu starts, and retains, a lovely vaudevillian sound, even as it progresses to a beautiful high, with a phenomenal first interlude that seems to be modeled on raaga Keeravani (shades of Minsara Kanavu’s Vennilave vennilave?). Midhun is so good with the vocals! In Nennillade, Midhun hands over the reigns of the feathery melody to Supriya Lohith and she handles it brilliantly! The point where Tony Das’s guitar kicks in alongside ‘Nennillade’ is delightful, as much as Parth Chandiramani’s flute interlude before Raghu Ram’s vocals begin. The joyously playful Motte Song has the right blend of mock-Carnatic flavor and a fantastic fusion sound that keeps the song constantly interesting! Sooraj Santhosh aces the jovial rendition perfectly, along with Mridula Mukundan. The soundtrack’s easy highlight is Henne! The song has a wonderful indie/jazz feel recalling the sounds of Sandeep Chowta or a Nischay Parekh. Deepak Doddera, along with Ruhee Ahamed Asif, holds the melody darn well, though it is Midhun’s orchestration that screams for attention here! Composer Midhun Mukundan was obviously promising in Srinivasa Kalyana, but in Ondu Motteya Kathe he transcends to a new level! He is a great new addition to the already heady line-up of new-age Kannada composers!
