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, […]

Pokkiri Raja (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Imman goes gruffy and angsty in Athuvutta, perhaps the catchiest and danc’iest love-failure song. The reprise takes it a bit slow, but retains the feel. Imman pulls off an encore in Taaru taara, but with a more dissonant grunge sound. Rain rain makes up for the nursery rhyme’ish lyrics by opting for a punchy tune […]

Miruthan (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

MunnaaL kaadhali does gracefully what Silambarasan has been doing coarsely with all his lost loves. Madhan Karky’s lyrics is an imaginative ode the ex-girlfriend, and Vishal’s articulation is perfect, as always. Haricharan’s reprise of the song—with a somber touch—is an equally good listen. Veri veri veri, the musical Tamil introduction to Zombies, is very very […]

Barring the innovative word-play invoking James Bond, Virat Kohli and Kamal Haasan for the bridge words, Vroom vroom‘s monotonous and gimmicky tune hardly sustains any interest. Aanaalum indha mayakkam‘s lilting Bollywood’ish rhythm keeps it fairly engaging. The grungy title song seems better as background music, though Vaikom Vijayalakshmi, in the female version, owns the song […]

Paayum Puli (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Malgudi Shuba’s vocals, Imman’s intriguing tune and udukkai sound makes the title song a breezy listen. Marudakkari is a fantastic listen – captivating guitar + folk sound mix, with a lovely tune to go with it, sung well by Diwakar. Jyoti Nooran’s Naan soodaana has better backgrounds—Pancham-style—than tune, while Imman’s inventive pause-filled rhythm and Raja-styled […]

The title song has a brisk sound, and despite its catchy guitar backdrop, it’s a fairly plain song. Armaan Malik evokes not-so-pleasant memories of early Udit Narayanan’s Tamil with ‘SoNa’ in Sona Sona, and the tune doesn’t help either. Lucka maattikkichi is that typical Imman song, with effervescent folk’ish rhythms, but the tune is as […]

The title song, with its bordering-on-Middle-Eastern Vakulabharanam raaga base is made more interesting with the prominent brass sound. Sivakarthikeyan delivers it pretty well. Un mela oru kannu, despite breezy vocals by Jithin Raj and Mahalakshmi Iyer and that cool rhythm, is a let-down, tune-wise. Aavi parakkum too suffers from the same impediment – poor tune, […]

Romeo Juliet (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Dandanakka is a raucous and riotous ode to T.Rajendar, something that only social media has been indulging in under a satirical garb, but with this song going mainstream! Anirudh leads the song confidently and the main hook is a foot-stomper! Vishal Dadlani is incredibly good with his vocals, and Tamil diction, in Thoovaanam, a thoroughly […]
