Yugabharathi’s enjoyable colloquial lyrics, Velmurugan’s vocals and GVP’s judiciously-understated rhythm prop Sandalee‘s gorgeous melody. GVP makes brilliant use of a folk riff in Uruttu kannala and adds a beautifully structured anupallavi which includes MM Manasi’s humming amidst Santhosh Hariharan’s raucous posturing! Nenje nenje‘s sedate melody comes alive brilliantly in Siddharth Mahadevan and Shasha Tirupati’s singing […]

Let’s Go Party and Yaar ivano sound woefully dated, including lyrics that allude to AB Positive and Android in the former, as if cementing that dated’ness. Sokki poraandi is no different, evoking Rahman’s brief faux-village music phase, but GVP has a lovely melody that plays interestingly with the percussion. Kannodu kannodu is fantastic! Sathya Prakash […]

Nee pona‘s easy, cool tune is a definite plus but the overall package is a bit too lethargic for comfort. Gum zaare‘s package is no different with a cringe-worthy, outdated sound and the tune struggling to stay interesting. Thankfully, GVP turns things around in Hey pathu podi with a funky tune and a lovely accordion’ish […]

MS Viswanthan’s Ninaithadhai Mudippavan number Kannai nambathey gets a bastard’ized love-failure plus friendship remix – standard-issue Gana Bala song meant for TASMAC, aimed at the foot. Myma is bastard’ized Chandrababu material, though GVP sings with a stylish edge and it is aptly foot-tapping. Dance with me is a banal and messy mish-mash of assorted genres […]

Mai pottu lyrically brings to life a nikkah, amidst a perfunctory tune. Hey pennae has a surprisingly Harris Jayaraji’sh tune, but is lovely nonetheless. In Mohini, GVP employs his faux-sufi sound again, and Sathyaprakash helps it glide through, as he does in the Yen ninjam sidharudhu that has a great rock backing. The soundtrack’s best, […]

Eetti (Music review), Tamil – G V Prakash Kumar

Kuiyyo muiyyo has a lively, rhythmic tune, accentuated by the hook and Ranjith & Vandana’s singing, besides Na.Muthukumar’s lines (Pakistan army pol border’a minjariye!). Naan pudicha is standard-issue thavil & nadaswaram faux-folk, but GVP and Shaktishree’s singing makes a big difference. GVP makes fantastic use of ghatam (and nadaswaram) in Panjumittai, a gorgeous tune, sung […]

Yennachu yedhachu owes its existence heavily to Minsara Kanavu’s Vennilave vennilave, and it’s not just the Keeravani raaga base! GVP goes full-on local kuthu for Bittu padam di and that brusque sound goes well with Rokesh’s street-smart lyrics. Dakalti goes one step further, mixing local kuthu with cool techno sound. GVP gets Yuvan to sing […]

Edhai ninaithom is wonderfully sung and orchestrated by Prakash, but it sounds alarmingly like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’s Khaabon Ke Parindey that Alyssa Mendonsa may butt in with ‘Oho kya pata’ any time! Karuppu has an interesting structure; an ambient synth dubstep number that plays peekaboo with kuthu rhythm – great listen! Maanjaave too is […]

MC Vickey grunts his way through the predictable hip-hop/rap template of High voltage. Udit Narayan continues his Tamil-spitting routine in the painfully dated Machi machi that desperately tries to sound cool with Na.Muthukumar’s lyrics, and fails. Suttrum boomi is incredibly routine, in every conceivable way, while A walk to remember theme is non-descript background material. […]

G V Prakash Kumar sounds awkward in Sooraj hai kahaan; the generic tune doesn’t help either. But the composer makes up for it in Papa, a poignant melody that he hands over to dependable Shilpa Rao. Even Nichod de, beyond its limited item-number aspirations, works, thanks to GVP keeping it simple and catchy, along with […]
