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 […]

Valiyavan (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Aahaa kaadhal is that trademark Imman sound – extra catchy rhythm, a tinge of Latino and a hummable tune. Papon’s Hello hello, is a foot-tapping drunk birthday wish that also features a dog’s panting! Great listen too, with Papon’s Hindi’ish diction adding to the song’s drunken’ness! Sunidhi’s vocals add to the languorous tune of Yelomia […]

Vellaikaara Durai (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Ammadi un azhagu continues where Inji iduppazhaga left, and does so in style too, aided generously by Sathya Prakash’s vocals. Kaakka muttai has the inimitable Vaikom Vijayalakshmi completely owning the rocking tune, even as Imman’s pulsating music adorns it all through. Koodha kaathu is pleasant, though also perfunctory as a melody, but Haricharan and Shreya […]

Kayal (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Paravayaa parakkurom has an easy charm, with its violin phrases, ebullient percussion and neat choral play. In Yengirindhu vandhaayo, more than the actual tune, the atmospherics in the orchestration lift the song, while the other Shreya Ghoshal-sung song, Yen aala seems to invoke Hamsanadham raaga to tantalizing effect! Unna ippo paakkanum seems to be built […]
