Karu (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.

There’s palpable tenderness in the way Swagatha S. Krishnan handles Aalaliloo, rendering Madhan Karky’s gentle verse as if they are brittle. Sam’s music is wonderfully serene, even segueing into a rhythm that’s equally gentle. Konjali is an absolute stunner! From the sparse mridangam to the beautifully appropriate nadaswaram, to Sathyaprakash and Neha Venugopal’s lead vocals, […]

Atif Aslam-led Sehmi hai dhadkan has a somber, deeply engaging tune that Vipin Patwa orchestrates really well, with a soaring hook that demands a lot from the singer and thankfully, he delivers pretty well. Vipin’s other song featuring Bulle Shah’s verse, Tain to uttey has another Pakistani singer, Javed Bashir, who is equally good, with […]

Sam builds Iravukku Aayiram Kangal’s soundtrack by splitting the mood literally in two equal parts. Uyir uruvaatha and Yean penne neeyum are pleasant and so full of love, while Yea pa yeppappa (and Nights Of Neverland) and Winds Of The Darkest Hour are ominous and portending. Uyir uruvaatha, structured around that instantly likeable hook, gains […]

Gultoo (Music review), Kannada – Amit Anand

Saalaagi‘s sweeping melody seems perfect for Saindhavi’s range, and the frenetic breakbeats lift the song to a new high! Amit’s vocals don’t help the song’s reprise Kaanada preethi, but the tune’s instrumental extension is pretty good! Neenondu ashcharya could have easily come from Judah Sandhy’s mind! Lovely melody and excellent orchestration as well! VTU We […]
