Poovukku is a merely-pleasant song to resurface with the post-Gautham Menon form for Darbuka Siva. Even Vaazhum valluvarae is short and situational. But Siva stuns with Yaenadi! It could easily be from a Gautham film – breezy melody, phenomenally sung by Haricharan and a delightful anupallavi-to-pallavi bridge! Geedhaara kiliye is even better!! Sathyaprakash is superb […]

Sketch (Music review), Tamil – SS Thaman

In Kanave, Thaman goes back to his Eeram sound! The melody is effortlessly appealing. Atchi putchi is adequately raucous kuthu that checks all requisite criteria. Cheeni chillaallee sounds a lot like early Rahman songs, with an especially melodic anupallavi. Andrea’s pronunciation of ‘Dhadikaara‘ was perhaps really bad; that’s one way to explain THE Sudha Raghunathan […]

Lamba lamba and Raakkozhi kootalinga defy description. They’re utterly zany and curiously catchy. As if that’s not enough, Yae elumba enni enni goes a step ahead in the zany quotient, and manages to sound incredibly disorienting and bizarre, while threatening to steal Vijay Mallya’s money! Hey reengara brings the soundtrack back to something resembling a […]

Tik Tik Tik (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

The title track has Madhan Karky playing Tamil teacher yet again, teaching us new words, even as Imman, for the catchy song, trolls Tamil Nadu by getting Yuvan—who mispronounces Tamil a lot—and digitally smoothens his singing perfectly too! Kurumba and its reprise which sees the father and mother singing about their son has a predictably […]

Between the energetic tabla and iktara-like strains, Anirudh handles Naana thaana‘s likeable tune in his inimitable style. The title song‘s gangsta-style music is engaging, while the anthemic Engae endru povathu‘s poignant lyrics and somber tune keep it listenable. Peela peela‘s is inherently catchy, with calypso’ish sound and clever retro-product mentions. The soundtrack’s best is, of […]

Guleba makes up for the generic Latino carnival tune by being super enthusiastic about it, and this includes Anirudh’s ebullient singing and Maxwell’s splendid brass section. Seramal ponal‘s melody is very Vivek-Mervin, with an expansive sound, featuring Chennai Strings Orchestra and a lush melody sung very well by Mervin and Sameera Bharadwaj. The song’s other […]

Sakka Podu Podu Raja (Music review), Tamil – STR

After a grand, clunky intro, Kalakku machan launches into a Bhagyaraj-style insipid composition. Siru siru has an interesting germ of a semi-classical tune, but Simbu messes it up royally with haphazard backgrounds. The family song, Vaa munima, sung by dad, mom and son is the worst of the lot, going batshit crazy with digital processing. […]

Un pera sollu has the same verve as a non-A R Rahman KT Kunjumon film song. There’s a lot of alluring sounds but they don’t quite come together. I am CEO too is a glitzy, head-spinning array of mighty interesting sounds, but this time, it actually works cohesively. The lyrics are utterly corny, though, invoking […]

Vaanam dhaane has a nice edgy tune that almost sounds like a warning, complete with a mysterious vaudevillian sound. Mazhai megam harks back to Yuvan’s early days, with its flowing melody, though Yuvan’s insistence on singing it befits the film’s horror theme. The soundtrack’s best is Uyirile uyirile, an almost-Raja style melody—the rhythm and the […]

Velaikkaran (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Between inviting the velaikkaran and inspiring him, the former—Vaa velaikkara—with its exotic sound and Shakthisree’s fantastic vocals, works effortlessly. The latter (Ezhu velaikkara) is a lot of grandstanding sound that is merely background’ish. Idhayane‘s melody tries to hit the highs of Anirudh and Neeti’s Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, but the tune, while being pleasant, is uneven […]
