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 […]

Jeeva (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Ovvondrai thirudugirai may well be a song from Ilayaraja’s Neethaane En Ponvasantham! But, at some point mid-way, it could have easily been a Raja song from his prolific Kannada sojourn in the early 80s! The tune is vintage Raja and even the orchestration Imman assembles so beautifully and thoughtfully is strongly reminiscent of the veteran […]

Mazhakatha‘s tune and rhythm is a fantastic mix of Latino and Middle Eastern, along with nadhaswaram too! Groovy tune and well sung by Haricharan, and Vandana sounding a lot like Chinmayi. Odum rayilai checks every box in Imman’s current arsenal of sounds – pulsating rhythm, a Raja’ish melody that is instantly likeable and sweeping strings… […]

Sriram Parthasarathy’s pleasant voice seems perfect for the lovely melody of Tholaivil irukkum, with Imman’s Ilayaraja’ish sound, and nifty touches like that santoor. Imman’s arrangement is phenomenal in Nenje nenje and Harshdeep Kaur’s vocals adds amazing value to the Charukesi’ish tune. Yaro yaro‘s tune, in comparison, is a bit jaded but Imman’s strings-based orchestration and […]
