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. […]

Sivam’s weathered vocals go searingly high-pitched in Karuppu vellai. Given the song’s Revathi raaga base, Sam seems to be invoking Aigiri Nandini, with a hypnotic swag. Oru Katha Sollatta? is its hyper-inventive waltz equivalent! Sam ropes in Anirudh and Shakthisree for Yaanji, an immersive melody and does a splendid job with the interludes too. The […]

For a song that proclaims that they will blow the trumpet on Donald Trump, Dagalti dagalti is incredibly lackluster. The title song is even more pointless, with a flat droning tune that seems perfectly composed as elevator muzak. Medhakavitta medhakavitta takes upon itself to salvage the soundtrack, to some extent. The melody is likeable, but […]

Yugabharathi’s enjoyable colloquial lyrics, Velmurugan’s vocals and GVP’s judiciously-understated rhythm prop Sandalee‘s gorgeous melody. GVP makes brilliant use of a folk riff in Uruttu kannala and adds a beautifully structured anupallavi which includes MM Manasi’s humming amidst Santhosh Hariharan’s raucous posturing! Nenje nenje‘s sedate melody comes alive brilliantly in Siddharth Mahadevan and Shasha Tirupati’s singing […]

The searing pathos in the short Kalangaathe kanne has Ajaneesh singing with perfect Tamil diction! He ropes in fellow composer C.R.Bobby for the other short, evocative Unna naan rasikka, that’s earthy and impactful. In Beachu kaathu, Anthony Daasan’s familiar folksy singing gets a punchy brass backing. Annamaare ayyamaare has a wonderfully generous dose of Ajaneesh’s […]

Na.Muthukumar’s poignant lines about life as a journey, and Vikram’s exotic instrumental mix (including, fittingly, Burmese Harp) adds weight to the pensive Yaathreega. Maria Kavita Thomas’s splendid singing props Enai marakirene beyond its generic pop outlook. Thottil madiyil‘s serene lullaby is enhanced by Chinmayi’s rendition. Vikram’s best is Foreign return, that, despite the meandering flow, […]

Tubelight (Music review), Tamil – Indra

Ceylon silku nila is almost a Mysskin item song, with a male chorus raucously singing around a yellow-sari Ceylon lady. The tune’s Latin/Baila base, Chinmayi’s vocals and the peekaboo rhythm makes it mighty interesting beyond its catchy appeal. Indra impresses even more in Mella vaa, with that classy semi-classical lilt and getting Unni Menon and […]

Move over Ji, here comes Bro! Easy listen – cool techno-pop done well. Vivek’s inspirational verse works in Nirkadhey, but the song, despite that catchy vocalized rhythm, doesn’t come together cohesively. Kannaal modhadhey is quite a rocker! Funky synth by Naveen and Satt Richard, coupled with Babu’s trumpet and Sid Sriram’s flamboyant vocals. The 4 […]
