Kolamaavu Kokila – CoCo (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Posted by Karthik

Sean Roldan’s grungy voice goes wonderfully with the moody tune of Edhuvaraiyo! Anirudh rolls out his mysterious, Moby-style backgrounds only after the first minute, raising the stakes! Kalyaana Vayasu, sung by Anirudh himself, is incredibly catchy. Sivakarthikeyan’s lyrics seem influenced by Simbu, particularly that ‘Wait pannava’ line! In Orey Oru, when Anirudh goes, ‘Sathamaai naan azhudhithaan’, the melody harks back to his Naanum Rowdy Thaan association with Vignesh ShivN who wrote the lyrics for this one! Keba’s guitar is a legitimate third voice, and the composer scores in the way he layers Jonita’s singing in a different pitch besides his own. Anirudh also handles Thittam Poda Theriyala exceptionally well. The repetitive hooks are addictive, while the sitar-led interludes are scintillating. Kabiskabaa Coco – The Gibberish Song and its soul twin, Gun-In Kadhal, are absolutely zany and delightful! The former kicks in with a Raja-style retro prelude, but moves on to R.D.Burman’s zone even as Arunraja’s singing itself is much like MS Viswanathan style! The latter has Vijay Yesudas tempering the glitzy sounds with his softer verses, while Arunraja Kamaraj goes delightfully berserk, including the punchy Kabiskabaa Coco hook! Kolamaavu Kokila (CoCo) is Anirudh at his best, producing massively entertaining music!

      Surprisingly malayalam hasn’t even opened the account yet, maybe it needs some kind of communist boost in form of maybe lol salam, the reviewer should soon start the counter of malayalam running else he maybe alleged to being intolerant, racist and malayalees may do some kind of protest maybe some strike in their state soon, lol

    I feel like Thittam Poda Theriyala is as much as a soul twin to Kalyana Vayasu as Gun-in Kadhal is to Kabiskabaa Coco, in the way he structured the songs. Both have the same starting tune, the chorus of Thittam Poda Theriyala is the interlude of Kalayana Vasayu, and there are little other additions that complement each other. Since both songs seems to be focused on yogi babu’s character, I would like to think this is intentional.

    Dont know whether you ve missed it but Kabiskabaa Coco is heavily inspired from T Rajendars viral video
