Adhe Kangal (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Idho thaanaagave sees Ghibran go hard-rock with a vengeance, almost like a sitar-infused Blaze of Glory (Bon Jovi) even as Yazin Nizar rocks the high-powered rendition! Its variant, I Have Nothing is a slow-burner R&B that’s foot-tapping, complete with Jah Hill’s gibberish verses.Ponapokkil has an elfin charm, and even segues into an unusually retro anupallavi […]

Justin constructs the somber Engeyo pogum almost like a bridge to Ilayaraja’s anupallavi from Aval Appadithaan’s Uravugal thodarkadhai. Kanna katti is delightful – spiffy tune and jaunty rhythm, and wonderful vocals by Haricharan! Latha Krishna joins him eventually and the nostalgic Raja flavor in anupallavi adds to the song’s charm. Kannukulla, a simple, 80s style […]

Ondroduthan ondroga, the friendship anthem, has joyful sound, and Anirudh, handling it perfectly, gets splendid support from Chennai Boys Choir. Mannenna vepenna is the friendship anthem’s anti-thesis, showing utter disdain for certain types of friends in a get-down-to-the-ground kuthu format. Kannadi poovukku is gorgeous! Haricharan and Jonita Gandhi are in splendid form, as always, while […]

Yaaro ucchikilai meley is vintage Yuvan; lilting rhythm and a pleasant melody. Unn badhil vendi‘s tune seems retrofitted on Na.Muthukumar’s poetry, and Unnai‘s verses seem even more melody-agnostic, going ‘Nee sirithu mayakkum muganool padangalukku, en aanmaavilirundhu araivari eduthu ezhudhinaal podhum, nee Like seivaai‘, resulting in an uncomfortably perfunctory tune. Kaadhal oru kattukkadhai rides largely on […]

Bairavaa (Music review), Tamil – Santhosh Narayanan

Varlaam varlaam vaa is Vijay’s own Neruppu daa! The swagger is intact, and the lyrics aptly eulogises the star. Nillayo layers the breezy hook onto the very-Santhosh strings, though Vairamuthu’s ‘silicon silayo’ could mean entirely something else. Barring the foot-tapping kuthu in Papa papa, and interestingly bluesy notes in Pattaya kelappu (where Vairamuthu alludes to […]

En oruthiye has a catchy rhythm and a breezy melody that Sriramachandra delivers impressively. And lovely use of Kishore’s sitar. Das’s shehnai (and sax!) does something similar to Kilukilu payaai that comes alive more for Parthiban’s word-play. Wifeh lovvu is a power-kuthu with Joseph Vijay’s electric guitar playing nicely over the raucous rhythm, though the […]

Kan vatchutta‘s playful word-play and that intriguing wind-instrument is a neat trick that helps tide over the relatively plain tune. The title song goes down further – a rhymes-like title hook and a retro-pop doesn’t help either. The song’s Club Mix version fares considerably better, turning it into a throbbing dance floor track! Darbuka Siva’s […]

Bogan (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Damaalu dumeelu is a punchy gimmick at best, stringing together iconic punch dialogs into a manic kuthu. Luksimi Sivaneswaralingam’s vocal prowess helps Senthoora, an otherwise standard-issue Imman material. Inno Genga’s reprise, handled differently, manages to sound better, though! Kooduvittu is a competent rehash of Imman’s own songs, with coolth flowing from Jyoti Nooran, and Arvind […]

Kadhal pennae rides on Karthik’s dependably excellent vocals and the little nuances Sam layers, like the dramatic change in rhythm to start and end the anupallavi, and that really short and fast, ‘Kanavula needhaan’ piece that he uses just once, to great effect! Theera oru and Yaeno are outdated in every conceivable way; routine pathos […]

SP Balasubrahmanyam sounding like his 80s/90s self in Enda ippadi is reason enough to love the song! Nivas adds a lot more – the tune has a nice repetitive ring, besides the nadaswaram layer, the occasional kuthu rhythm and catchy rap by Emcee Gonsales! The song’s pathos variant Or naal kaadhal is an awkward listen, […]
