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 […]

Sei (Music review), Tamil – Nyx Lopez

Hero hero is an energetic prop for the now-called Nakkhul’s dancing skills, complete with a kuthu interlude led by Chinnaponnu. Atif Ali’s terrible Tamil stands out awkwardly amidst the generic sufi sound of Iraiva. Nadiga nadiga is a pleasant melody that hits the right notes, including a fantastic Vidyasagar-style tabla-led phrase, while also sounding like […]

The title song is effortless Yuvan at his best – addictively cool EDM mix! Itemkaaran is no different, with its insanely catchy hook and a steadily raucous kuthu rhythm, delivered with the perfect verve by Ranjith and Anita! Idhayathai oru nodi joins the long list of Yuvan songs that should have been sung by a […]

Kaathirukkum koottathukku is so typically Sean; a whiff of Celtic, fantastic guitar and a lively tune rendered enthusiastically by Hariharasudhan. Azhagile enai has Pradeep’s vocals, enough said! The beautiful melody has an almost-spoken flow with each line ending in a contemplative pause! Thee thee has the charm of a 90s pop track with a lovely […]

Kukkotti kunaatti moves seamlessly from the child’s perspective—Praniti’s delightfully innocent “Aala marathula yeraadhey, maangaya parikkaadhey; maanga marathula yeraadhey, thengaaya parikkaadhey“—to the duo singing about the child herself. It’s a package that works wonderfully with imaginative vocal harmonies and sparkling Ukelele, violin, viola and cello. Oothakkaadu Venkata Subbaiyer and Ray Charles go to a bar and […]

Ranjith holds Sevatha pulla in great stead, with a reggae-ish sway and a particularly neat anupallavi. Oru veettil and O sathiye are good old Ghibran, with multi-layered sound, splendid chorus and excellent singing by Shashaa Tirupati and Inno Genga, and Armaan Malik, respectively. Laali laali extends that sound, with a catchy background that carries enjoyable […]

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

There’s more sound-led glitz in Endhira logathu sundariye than a cohesive tune. Sid and Shashaa’s voices are digitally mauled, perhaps owing to the ‘robot’ theme, a musical cue that plagued Endhiran‘s soundtrack too. Madhan Karky’s enjoyably clever lyrics doff the hat to ‘computerized Rajini’ (KaNini Rajini nee!) and a 3-word phrase that fits his father’s […]
