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 […]

Sean Roldan is an interestingly different choice to lead Yembuttu irukkuthu aasai, though, along with Kalyani Nair, he infuses life into the otherwise standard-issue filmy retro melody. Marhaba aavona overdoes the same faux-retro, fully-filmy tone, though Shreya’s singing elevates it significantly. Semma joru is lot of fun – simple, catchy and infectious vocals by Vishal. […]

Bogan (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Damaalu dumeelu is a punchy gimmick at best, stringing together iconic punch dialogs into a manic kuthu. Luksimi Sivaneswaralingam’s vocal prowess helps Senthoora, an otherwise standard-issue Imman material. Inno Genga’s reprise, handled differently, manages to sound better, though! Kooduvittu is a competent rehash of Imman’s own songs, with coolth flowing from Jyoti Nooran, and Arvind […]

Maaveeran Kittu (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Pooja’s singing and Imman’s claps-led orchestration work beautifully over Elanthaari‘s enticing melody. The reprise offers a lovely variant, with Sniti Mishra’s mighty unique vocals and a fresh background. Pradeep Kumar’s affecting vocals help Inaivom transcend the generic inspirational sound. Unkooda‘s soul is Kalyani Nair, who traverses Imman’s unconventional melody and the gorgeous violin phrases beautifully. […]

Rubaai (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Asuthuthe features incredibly breezy guitar and Imman takes on the singing duties of the frothy tune confidently, with it taking a gorgeous Latino flavor too. Unkooda pesathaane is Imman + Shreya Ghoshal – enough said! Imman hands her an almost-Raja’ish melody with a lovely chorus, but a modern rhythm that seems uncomfortable in the background. […]

Double OK is the weakest of the soundtrack, with a rather generic Tanglish outlook, but with an interesting rhythm-twist mid-way. Imman’s Raja’ish tendencies open up from Idhukkuthaanae aasappattain, a scintillating and punchy melody superbly sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Vandana Srinivasan that escapes specific raaga-identification, though it beautifully alludes to Lalitha raaga in the anupallavi, […]

Rekka (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

That Imman reserves some of his best melodies for Shreya Ghoshal is well established already. And when he hands her a mesmerizing tune that seems to be alluding to both Simmendramadhyamam (possible shades of Panneer Pushpangal’s Aanandha raagam!) and Gowrimanohari raagas, the results are bound to be awesome. So, Kanna kaattu podhum totally rocks, in […]

Veera Sivaji (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Thaarumaaru thakkalisoru seems like it has been composed by a bot; STR’s voice, lyrics and the backgrounds… all drown in digital excess. The other version, led by Deepak, is more like the real deal – significantly better! Adada adada, while being adequately pleasant, is a hopeless rehash of Paayum Puli’s Silukku marame! Thankfully Vaikom Vijayalakshmi […]

It takes some time to realize that Wako wowra is actually a Tamil song; it’s catchy, no doubt. Shankar Mahadevan handles the strings-led Yellaam nadagam like a pro, and the orchestration is consistently fantastic! Hey Puthrajaya poove rides on Sunitha and Jithinraj’s punchy vocals and Imman’s mighty inventive, varied sounds. The theme is a good, […]
