Mersal (Music review), Tamil – A R Rahman

Maacho, with its dramatically diverse soundscape, is Rahman throwing everything including the kitchen sink at it! Awkwardly enough, with adequate gibberish, it sounds like a Harris Jayaraj song – a meta-milestone! Mersal arasan and Aalaporaan Thamizhan are even more disconcertingly disparate, with enough bits of alluring sounds that just don’t seem to cohesively come together. […]

Iravil varukira is Shreya’s show… almost all the way! She’s impeccable, as expected, but ‘almost’ because Ishaan, interestingly, throws in so many things into it – exquisite orchestration (particularly that second interlude!), a sweeping tune that demands your attention given its complex path, and a jaunty rhythm reminiscent of 80s Bollywood! In comparison, Ishaan’s vocals […]

Amidst the wailing electric guitar, the Major Sundarrajan style title song—Kathanayagan The Hero—is adequate for Vishnu Vishal’s slow-motion intro. Anirudh is perfect for On nenappu, a song with Dhanush-level lyrical prowess (GKB’s lyrics, however) and a catchy tune with a lovely violin and harmonium layer. The swankily conceived brass-led tune of Tappu tippu works alongside […]

Vivegam (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Surviva is a relentless affair. The music is pulsating and Yogi B leads the frenetic vocals in style. Thalai viduthalai goes one step ahead, with punchy vocals delivered with panache by Anirudh and Harish Swaminathan. Veriyera, though, goes overboard and is rather generic. Even Kadhalaada‘s beautifully flowing (Kedaram? Nalinakanti?) melody—deftly handled by Shashaa Tirupati and […]

Aramm (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Ghibran makes phenomenal use of The city of Prague Philharmonic orchestra in Melam kottudaa. The orchestral splendor is a consistent backdrop to Gold Devaraj’s engaging singing of the bittersweet melody that is a somber reminder of the serious lack of water. Thoranam aayiram carries a whiff of Charukesi raaga (goes off in the anupallavi) that […]

Nibunan (Music review), Tamil – S.Navin

Vaa daa modi paakalam is not a clarion call to come and look at our Prime Minister. It is instead Arunraja Kamaraj getting further pigeon-holed into his Kabali template, screaming his vocal chords out in a bloody splatter. Pradeep Kumar handles Idhuvum kadanthu pogum‘s cool rock-ballad style melody with grace, particularly the softer phrases. But […]

Summa irukkuruthu and Pachi paranthiruchi are Imman template-reuse all the way – pounding rhythm and vocal effects, with simplistic catchy tunes. In Ammani, despite Diluckshan Jeyaratnam and Shashaa Tirupati, the melody suffers from being too similar to umpteen Imman songs. Yennaannu solveno has a painfully obvious pathos melody, but Imman invests a lot in the […]

Ammukuttiye seems like a deft use of Jog raaga and in Pradeep Kumar’s compelling vocals and Prakash Hariharan’s electric mandolin phrases, the melody comes out beautifully. Kanmani finds itself in a piquant situation – the tune is pleasant enough and Abhay Jodhpurkar’s vocals add considerable heft, but the rhythm seems incongruous. That problem is rectified […]

Dhanush’s singing is like the Mofa he rides amidst Yogi B’s grunting in Nada da raja, featuring Josh Mark Raj’s scintillating guitar. Iraivanai thandha continues from Sean’s Power Paandi, with its beautiful melody—and that Raja swagger in the trumpets—brilliantly enhanced by Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra! Dhooram nillu has the throbbing vibe of an 80s Kamal-Ilayaraja combo […]

After STR’s mental prelude rant, the Trend Song thankfully moves to a frenetic EDM package. Rottula vandi oodudhu faces the EDM heat too, layered with some foot-tapping kuthu. Simbu’s deep lyrics introspect on the prospects of a directionally challenged human’s life. And, poor Ilayaraja. In Ratham en ratham, STR outdoes Yuvan in the singing department. […]
