Swagatham Suswagatham is quite an unusual opening to the soundtrack! Cisco Chi sounds like Apache Indian 2.0 and the music too mixes a host of genres, sounding both curious and interesting! Aagi Aagi is trademark Vivek, with a breezy, guitar-led sound, and a melody that is easy-on-the-ear. Anurag Kulkarni holds fort till the anupallavi when […]

It’s almost 2 decades since I started ItwoFS! I started the background work in 1999. By the way, it’s pronounced I2FS (eye-2-f-s) – it is simply, and embarrassingly, Inspired Indian Film Songs (so 2 Is and FS). I was in my early 20s, away from home, on my first job in Delhi. I had experienced […]

Daariya Kaledukondide is such a well-rounded, melodious package! Leon de Souza opens it beautifully, with his poised singing, even as Inchara Rao joins him in the anupallavi to offer a new flavor to the song. Sumesh Parameswar’s guitars easily stand out in the serene song, and the pitch changes in the anupallavi are especially fantastic! […]

Oohalu Oorege Gaalanthaa is every bit of a Vivek Sagar song, and that’s something, given the young composer’s relatively limited repertoire. The gentle jazzy feel is something Vivek does so well. Plus, he has Haricharan’s spellbinding singing (along with Keerthana) to go with it. The other song featuring Haricharan is top notch as well – […]

Azhake is classic Stephen-style soaring and serene melody. Mohanlal, despite the occasional quiver in his voice, does mighty well, while Shreya is wonderful, as always. Kannane extends Mohanlal’s current trend of having a highly-rhythmic very-Malayalee folk song – it checks all boxes admirably. Stephen produces a flamboyant package in Neeralippidutham, a cool Bond-style number, handled […]
