Udaharanam Sujatha (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

Posted by Karthik

Kasavu njoriyumoru pulari is simply outstanding! Gopi employs Sriranjani-raaga in an austere, evocative package and lets Gayathri Varma completely own the wonderful melody. Similarly, in Unarukayaano, Gopi layers the steady thrumming backdrop that eventually moves on to a captivating folk rhythm over Sayanora Philip’s soaring vocals to create a highly engaging song. Kaattil ila has an easily appealing lilt. Vijay Yesudas is pitch-perfect with the vocals even as the composer uses Sumesh Parameshwar’s mandolin to great effect. The short Pennale and it’s longer, thematic twin, Nee njangade offer a vibrant folk sound that’s resonant and beautifully rhythmic, particularly the latter, featuring an excellent assortment of singers led by Aristo Suresh. Gopi’s interpretation of Nil Battey Sannata’s Maths mein, Kanakku starting on a similar, whimsical note, but moves on to a more poignantly melodious tone, brilliantly handled by Sithara Krishnakumar! Sithara does very well in Ethu mazhayilum too, with Gopi’s trademark strings arranged in an intriguing manner on top of the pleasant melody. It’s interesting to see the musical situations soar for the Nil Battey Sannata remake in Malayalam. After Rohan & Vinayak in Hindi, and Ilayaraja in Tamil, Gopi, in Malayalam, produces the most impressive soundtrack for the same plot!
