Kukkotti kunaatti moves seamlessly from the child’s perspective—Praniti’s delightfully innocent “Aala marathula yeraadhey, maangaya parikkaadhey; maanga marathula yeraadhey, thengaaya parikkaadhey“—to the duo singing about the child herself. It’s a package that works wonderfully with imaginative vocal harmonies and sparkling Ukelele, violin, viola and cello. Oothakkaadu Venkata Subbaiyer and Ray Charles go to a bar and […]

Ranjith holds Sevatha pulla in great stead, with a reggae-ish sway and a particularly neat anupallavi. Oru veettil and O sathiye are good old Ghibran, with multi-layered sound, splendid chorus and excellent singing by Shashaa Tirupati and Inno Genga, and Armaan Malik, respectively. Laali laali extends that sound, with a catchy background that carries enjoyable […]

2.0 (Music review), Tamil – A.R.Rahman

There’s more sound-led glitz in Endhira logathu sundariye than a cohesive tune. Sid and Shashaa’s voices are digitally mauled, perhaps owing to the ‘robot’ theme, a musical cue that plagued Endhiran‘s soundtrack too. Madhan Karky’s enjoyably clever lyrics doff the hat to ‘computerized Rajini’ (KaNini Rajini nee!) and a 3-word phrase that fits his father’s […]

Girishh does something interesting in Kaarigai kanne – what is a whispery and gorgeous melody in Tamil and Telugu, it transforms into a mighty likeable Mohit Suri-style melody in the Hindi version, O mere sanam! The former variants include 2 singers, with the female singers (Shaktishree and Chinmayi) offering tantalizing spoken lyrics, while the Hindi […]

Ippadai Vellum (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

The title song is earnestly background’ish not quite hitting the anthemic high it so obviously tries to reach. The theme crafted after the title song is more energetic and interesting. ‘Godfather kanmaniye‘! Yeah, let that sink in! Lyricist Arunraja Kamaraj’s head-scratching phrase, that. Imman’s generic melody doesn’t do the phrase any justice, though. But Imman […]

Indrajith (Music review), Tamil – KP

Semparuthi‘s Senthamizh verses by Pulamaipithan gets a resonant, semi-classical treatment by KP, along with Bombay Jayashri vocals. Ennenna kaatchigal is a breezy and catchy melody sung by Jaspreet Jasz and featuring Paul Vicc’s Santana-style guitaring. Vidigira vaanil has an interesting sound led by El Fé Choir’s harmonies, though it ends up seeming like the modern […]

Rajini’s Muthu quip in Yechacha is clever, but the tune+rhythm combo is so predictably Imman! Sophia is no different, with—awkwardly enough—a banal Harris Jayaraj sound. Aei arakka‘s racy sound is excellent though, with pulsating rhythm and superb vocals by Benny Dayal. Imman also scores beautifully in Aram seyya virumbu, roping in Hariharan to sing Vairamuthu’s […]

World of Shiva Masala Coffee’s interpretation of Aalayal thara venam remains consistently enjoyable, with that lovely Anandhabhairavi-raaga base, Krishnaraj’s scintillating violin, and Sooraj Santhosh and Varun Sunil’s vocals. The reprise is highly interesting as well, stripping the energy of the original, but letting the melody’s inherent beauty come to fore. Aigiri Nandini gets a searing […]

Anabelle Pei is Santhosh riffing on familiar gaana couplets, but Ka.Ka.Bala’s Area gaana mixes Villuppaattu-style with gaana’s raw energy impressively. S.Madhu is a funky TASMAC song espousing everything about S.Madhu, including her address! Rathina katti is interesting despite its Irudhi Sutru hangover, thanks to Dhee’s vocals. Santhosh’s best is Meghamo, with a splendid melody that […]

Sathya (Music review), Tamil – Simon K. King

There’s something distinctly Harris Jayaraj about Kadhal Project, but Simon improvises to bring his unique stamp, with his own funky keyboard and Vasanth David’s drums. Keerthana Vaidyanathan, and Benny Dayal, in particular, blaze through the swanky vocals. Kalyani’s part in Yavvana is extraordinarily beautiful, but Yazin’s abrupt Yavvana hook demands time to get used to. […]
