Tenali Raman (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

With Shreya’s artificially calibrated hiccups and a tune that is a distant echo of Ilayaraja’s similar retro efforts, Aanazhagu feels merely derivative. Aey vayaadi and Nenje nenje’s uninspiring tunes don’t help either, made worse by the uncomfortable mix of retro intention delivered through a modern set-up. Udal vaangalayo does mildly better, but is still undone […]

Yennamo Yedho (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Mosale, with its unusual word start spins a superb tapestry of sounds, led by guitar and that tantalizing nadaswaram! Deepak and Pooja deliver this addictive track really well. Neeyenna periya appatakkara seems like a complete ode to Santhanam – uses his trademark word and also his drunken outlook, to expand on a tipsy tiff between […]

Jilla (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Imman aims for a Thalapathy-Kaattu Kuyilu style male-leads duet in Paattu onnu and with a pulsating chendai section, and inspiring vocals by SPB and Shankar Mahadevan, almost pulls it off too! He sings Verasa pogayile himself and does mighty well because he nails the lilting melody and backgrounds wonderfully, adding fantastic innovations in the tune […]

Rummy (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Koodamela koodavechi is a gorgeous tune adorned with cello and Chennai Strings orchestra, to great effect; wonderful vocals by Prasanna and Vandana! Oru nodi too is a simple, lilting tune, sung very well by Imman and Divya Ramani. And the two Raja-style melodies – Adiye enna raagam and Yethukkaaga yenna, with keeravani and malayamarutham raaga […]

Hariharasudhan’s Oodhaa kalaru opens the soundtrack a fabulous note – typical Imman-material with all likeable elements like the catchy tune and punchy rhythm! Indha ponnungale reeks of the composer’s Manam Kothi Paravai, but still makes for a compelling listen! Paakaadhae and Yennada are those melodies that Imman is currently known for – whiff of Ilayaraja […]

Engirunthu mulaikkudhindha is a wonderful combination of a gorgeous tune and perfect orchestration – fabulously sung by Hariharan and Shreya. Poonkothai is a raunchy mix of familiar sounds and loops; well sung by Sangeetha Rajeshwaran, but nothing more. With Maranthuvidu, Imman aims for Raja-style violins and within that Mayamalavagowlai structure he gets most of it […]

Saattai (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

The kids’ chorus consisting of Haripriya and Sai Venkat join Ramesh Vinayagam and create sheer magic in Jada jada jaada, aided superbly by Yugabharathi’s gritty lyrics. Imman’s soaring and impactful use of the chorus and guitar deserves special mention! Shreya Ghoshal rocks the dulcet Sahaayane (barring Pookku and Thakku, in place of Pookka and Thakka; […]

Kumki (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Yella oorum works at a functional level as a hero intro song. Onnum puriyala is spectacular; moves from serene to the more enthusiastic, percussion-led portion incredibly well; Imman’s vocals is brilliant as is the quality of orchestration. Haricharan’s Ayayayo is no different – one heck of a sweeping melody, again orchestrated brilliantly. Sollitaaley is comparatively […]

Amara (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

MLR Karthikeyan rules like he always does, in Atha magalayum; the use of the folk sound fused with the more mod additions works well! Simmakallu sees Chinmayi is a mighty new avatar and she pulls off the intoxicated, item’ish sound wonderfully well, while Priya Himesh’s Koorapodava is a delightful tune, superbly orchestrated by Imman. Theeyum […]

Dang dang, featuring Maalavika and Saisharan’s vocals builds on its simple, folk’ish tune wonderfully well, backed by catchy, resonant rhythms where the composer adds finely nuanced modern sounds that add to the overall effect. Jal jal jal osai gets the tune + backgrounds combination perfectly well too; excellent work by Imman and the singers, Aalaap […]
