Petta (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Marana Mass has a smattering of SPB, a sign that the older order is out, even for the same actor. Petta Paraak is fantastic background music. In Ilamai Thirumbudhe, Poet-u Dhanush impresses, but the melody is serviceable. Anthony Daasan attempt Chandrababu-style retro in Aaha Kalyanam, but the music eventually drowns it. Ullaalla and Thappad Maara […]

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

Vivek goes WTH-level ballistic with internet acronyms in OMG Ponnu, with the music more sounding like Harris Jayaraj’s repertoire for Murugadoss. Top Tucker‘s pulsating rhythm is easy-on-the-ear, while Mohit Chauhan goes berserk with ‘Yendae’. CEO In The House is catchy, with the musical blitzkrieg working well with Nakul Abhyankar’s singing. Oru Viral Puratchi is the […]

NOTA (Music review), Telugu – Sam C.S

Yeththara Yeththara, with its adequately pumping music, works perfectly as a song featuring multiple shots! Yazin Nizar’s lead vocals and Swagatha S. Krishnan who joins later, keep the song consistently interesting. Nithyasree Mahadevan’s phenomenal singing lifts the Middle Eastern sound of Raja Raja Kula even as Abhay Jodhpurkar’s hook gets an anthemic treatment. Of the […]

Bhoomi is Shakthisree’s stellar show, with a matching chorus and a somber ending. Mazhai Kuruvi‘s sparkling strings promise a lot, but the pedestrian rhythm and meandering tune pull it down. Kalla Kalavaani and Sevandhu Pochu suffer from similar problems – brilliant sounds that don’t add up. Hayati works though, as a world-music’ish Dhol Dhol-equivalent (Yuva); […]

Of the five gaana-style songs, Sandhanatha and Goindhammavaala get significantly spruced up sounds. The former is incredibly rhythmic, sung with giddy enthusiasm by Ka Ka Balachander, while the latter is aided beautifully by the chorus, even as the music is simple and foot-tapping, to match Dhanush’s appropriately raw vocals. Between the other three, Arivu’s Mathiya […]

Karuppi is a searing hip-hop melody that Santhosh sings with intensity. The tune and the rap, along with the ending, offer a haunting, modern oppaari (elegy) of sorts! Vanakkam Vanakkamunga is authentic, austere Tamil folk with no shade of anything cinematic. In comparison, Engum Pugazh Thuvanga fares better with its authentic folk sound and lyrics, […]

Vaayadi Petha Pulla shines with a genuine bonhomie, thanks to the lively lilt, Aaradhana’s cheerful innocence, and excellent singing by Vaikom Vijayalakshmi and Sivakarthikeyan! In Oonjala Oonjala, Sid Sriram does his soul magic. The catchy pop tune gets steadily interesting, including Niranjana Ramanan’s semi-classical interlude! The tuneful title song sounds like a less aggressive variant […]

96 (Music review), Tamil – Govind Vasantha

Anthaathi could easily be called a celebration of love. Right from Karthik Netha’s fascinatingly beautiful exploration (“Ithyaadhi Kaadhal” is particularly interesting, literally meaning, “et cetera love”!), to C.Prem Kumar’s poem (narrated by actor Nassar) that imaginatively anthropomorphizes love, the words are stupendous! Govind’s tune is another story altogether! The serene way it starts with Chinmayi […]

High On Love should ideally be High on Yuvan! The entrancing melody is vintage Yuvan, with a deeply engaging orchestration and Sid Sriram’s stupendous vocals. Dope Track is equally brilliant. The melody is affecting, and even Yuvan’s poor diction and off-track singing seem pardonable given the wonderfully pulsating music. Hold Me Now is a hattrick! […]

Em Peru Matta‘s racy metal sound is appealing but on a fractured tune. The song’s ‘Mersal Illai‘ line becomes another song, completely different, and equally all-over-the-place. Andrea Jeremiah owns Mayakkuraane‘s jazzy melody, amidst a superb brass section. That brass rules over the gaana’ish Maane Thene too, supported by lively singing. Anjaa Nenjane is a kuthu-jazz […]
