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, […]

Maruthu (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Sooravalida is a standard-issue hero intro song extolling the hero’s virtues; besides Jinesh’s energetic singing, Imman’s nifty touches in the anupallavi’s background work. Othasada rosa faithfully follows Oothacoloru’s template and the lively rhythm helps the tune sail through. Karuvakaatu karuvaaya is that quasi-Raja melody that Imman has by now aced – functionally good, thanks to […]

Wagah (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

In Sollathaan nenaikiraen, Imman employs a commonplace faux-retro sound, but Divya Kumar’s exuberant singing makes up for any ennui. Yedho maayam is trademark Imman—sweeping, likeably familiar melody loaded with Enigma-styled backgrounds. After Ennamma ippadi panreengalema, Imman picks up another iconic line—Aaniyae pudunga venaam (from Friends, uttered by Vadivelu)—and makes a perfunctory dance track out of […]

Vetrivel (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

In Adiye unna, Imman delivers a Ilayaraja-style melody with grand strings that almost overpower the tune! Lovely listen, though, in Sathya Prakash and Vandana’s vocals. Onnappola’s lilt is charming and instantly likeable, and Shreya Ghoshal handles the beautiful tune brilliantly. Aattam pottu has an energetic rhythm that works in perfect sync with Saicharan’s lively rendition, […]
