Ippadai Vellum (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

The title song is earnestly background’ish not quite hitting the anthemic high it so obviously tries to reach. The theme crafted after the title song is more energetic and interesting. ‘Godfather kanmaniye‘! Yeah, let that sink in! Lyricist Arunraja Kamaraj’s head-scratching phrase, that. Imman’s generic melody doesn’t do the phrase any justice, though. But Imman […]

Rajini’s Muthu quip in Yechacha is clever, but the tune+rhythm combo is so predictably Imman! Sophia is no different, with—awkwardly enough—a banal Harris Jayaraj sound. Aei arakka‘s racy sound is excellent though, with pulsating rhythm and superb vocals by Benny Dayal. Imman also scores beautifully in Aram seyya virumbu, roping in Hariharan to sing Vairamuthu’s […]

Karuppan (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Karuva karuva payale is Imman regurgitating his stock, but between Shankar Mahadevan and Shashaa Tirupati, the energetic melody really comes alive, amidst brilliant work by Chennai Strings Section. It’s hard not to like Usure given the soaring Charukesi base and Ananya Bhat’s beautiful rendition, but the raaga use, with limited novelty, also makes it too […]

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, […]
