Karu (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.

Posted by Karthik

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, Sam’s sound is almost like that of Sharreth’s! Karuve, with a quivering Chithra, is predictably maudlin. Voice of Karu skillfully mixes Karuve and Aalaliloo in orchestral form, while Sound of Revenge is superbly foreboding before turning downright sinister! Sam is going from strength to strength!

    I know it seems too early to judge, but I’m betting Sam C. S. will be composer of 2018 considering the amount of projects he has this year.

  • Sri Prabhuram

    Who will be you next composer for your Monthlies for March?

      Vishal Bhardwaj.

  • Uday Kiran

    Karuve seems like Venuvai Vachanu from Matrudevobhava sung by the same Chitra, this also garnered a National Award I suppose. Music by MM Keeravani.

  • A well orchestrated and musically enriching album from Sam CS. Karuve is my favourite track.
