Sean Roldan’s grungy voice goes wonderfully with the moody tune of Edhuvaraiyo! Anirudh rolls out his mysterious, Moby-style backgrounds only after the first minute, raising the stakes! Kalyaana Vayasu, sung by Anirudh himself, is incredibly catchy. Sivakarthikeyan’s lyrics seem influenced by Simbu, particularly that ‘Wait pannava’ line! In Orey Oru, when Anirudh goes, ‘Sathamaai naan […]

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 […]

Agnyaathavaasi (Music review), Telugu – Anirudh

Dhaga dhaga maney, with its searing guitar backdrop (Prasanna, Rex Vijayan and Keba Jeremiah) and Anirudh’s vocal-cord busting singing is a pulsating listen! The classical guitar interludes and Anirudh’s work on the keyboard, in particular, significantly amps up the song. Baitikochi chuste is playful Anirudh at his best! The song is breezy and highly engaging, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rum (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Hola amigo is exotic and funky hip-hop served with Anirudh’esque punch that includes what sounds like kanjira and snatches of dialog from Netflix’s Narcos! Incidentally, the song’s other version, Hola Senorita is straight out of Narcos, high on Latino fusion and a fantastic violin-led ending. Kadavule vidai has a pleasing, inspirational sound like Michael Jackson’s […]

Remo (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

In Remo nee kadhalan, Anirudh plays between the film’s hero’s gender switch for rap in a frenzied, very busy chorus that is as interesting as it is layered. He joins the vocals himself eventually, considerably stretching his vocal chords. Anirudh headlines Senjitaley all by himself and the heady orchestration paves way for an incredibly catchy […]

Vedalam (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Aaluma doluma is lyricist Rokesh’s show, with Anirudh layering it with a mesmerizing techno sound. In Veera vinayaka, the composer seems to be using Vakulabharanam raaga to a hypnotic effect, and with Vishal Dadlani, he sings it mighty well. Anirudh ropes in Shruti and Shakthisree for the racy, R&B’ish Don’t you mess with me where […]

Starting with just guitar, Anirudh builds on Thangamey‘s sound progressively well, particularly a really well-placed violin solo by Ananthakrishnan. The tune is phenomenally engaging, including an anupallavi that goes interestingly off tangent. Neeyum naanum‘s melody is gobsmackingly beautiful, and as if not content with that, Anirudh loads it with so much more, including Neeti Mohan’s […]

Maari (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Maari thara local places enormously misplaced trust in the manic, folded-tongue kuthu rhythm and forgets bothering with the tune. Thappa dhaan has a half-decent, predictable tune and again depends inordinately on the kuthu rhythm. However, Bagulu odayum gets its priorities right – it shuns any dependence on the tune and makes a stupendous mix of […]
