Lakshmi (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.

Posted by Karthik

Morrakka Mattrakkaa is a beautifully constructed joyous outburst of a song. Uthara Unnikrishnan’s exuberant and innocent voice carries it as much as Madhan Karky’s inventive lyrics cheekily inverting the genders of famous dancers like Michael Jackson, Hrithik Roshan, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Prabhu Deva himself! Pappara Pappaa goes one step ahead, imbibing the energy of present-day adipoli Malayalam film songs and acts like the exact kind of song meant for a TV Dance Challenge! Very good singing by Praniti, Riyaz, Sri Vishnu and Pranav. But Dreamy Chellamma, sung mighty well by Saindhavi, despite the liveliness, seems a bit templatized. In Ala ala, singer-composer couple, Saindhavi and GV Prakash Kumar’s singing, as well as the splendid work with Cochin Strings and Chennai Strings Orchestra shows magnificently! Nilladhey Nilladhey sees Sam utilizing Sindhu Bhairavi raaga’s Middle Eastern connect beautifully, aptly supported by Sathyaprakash who renders the inspirational tune. Even Iraiva Iraiva is a superbly punchy—and rhythmic—prayer of sorts, brilliantly exploiting its Ahir Bhairav raaga origin, and sung with a full-throated verve by Sam. The soundtrack closes on a high with the well-crafted dance medley, The Rhythm of Dance. In his 4th release of 2018 already, and Sam seems to be on a roll!
