Ungarala Rambabu (Music review), Telugu – Ghibran

Mughlai biryani is Ghibran trying everything, including throwing in video game sounds into the mix. Hoo laa laa is passable, with lively singing by Dhanunjay and Yazin Nizar and a catchy hook, while Hitenshan teega‘s energetic pop sound segues beautifully into the core melody. The soundtrack’s two best songs feature Chinmayi – in Nuvve naa […]

Aramm (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Ghibran makes phenomenal use of The city of Prague Philharmonic orchestra in Melam kottudaa. The orchestral splendor is a consistent backdrop to Gold Devaraj’s engaging singing of the bittersweet melody that is a somber reminder of the serious lack of water. Thoranam aayiram carries a whiff of Charukesi raaga (goes off in the anupallavi) that […]

In the thematic instrumental, Ghibran’s beautifully woven strings and flute combo is reminiscent of Ilayaraja’s. Banupriya’s (Karu karunnu), Oorvashi’s (Carratu Pottazhagaa) and Saranya’s (Time Passukkosaram) songs are short, but highly rhythmic and appealing. Chennai Qawwali Kids’ vocal harmony in Bullet Song is impressive, on a middling Mast Qalandar recreation. Karthi does quite well in the […]

Maayavan (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Mella mella has all the hallmark of a Ghibran song – multi-layered orchestration, excellent vocal harmonies that beautifully lift the anupallavi and interludes and a saccharine-sweet melody perfectly handled by Shwetha Subram and Abishek. Bodhai poo raises the bar significantly further with its exotic instrumental mix and a fabulously rhythmic hook that Sharanya Gopinath renders […]

Adhe Kangal (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Idho thaanaagave sees Ghibran go hard-rock with a vengeance, almost like a sitar-infused Blaze of Glory (Bon Jovi) even as Yazin Nizar rocks the high-powered rendition! Its variant, I Have Nothing is a slow-burner R&B that’s foot-tapping, complete with Jah Hill’s gibberish verses.Ponapokkil has an elfin charm, and even segues into an unusually retro anupallavi […]

Hyper (Music review), Telugu – Ghibran

Anudeep and Yazin try their best singing the utterly predictable Come back, while Ghibran has a nice surprise in the anupallavi’s tune! Baby doll too has lot of catchy sounds, but the tune is pedestrian. Ompula dhaniya is the pits – with a groan-inducing bum chiki bum chorus. But Ghibran does throw a surprise in […]

Vaadi vaadi is Ghibran’s pulsating ode to classic rock, though Rajan Chelliah’s Tamil diction is considerably fangled. Texas pogiren takes things a notch higher! The singer, ‘Narrow Smith’ apes the high-pitched heavy-metal vocal style and sounds insanely innovative since he is singing in Tamil, including, ‘Aaathaaa, Maariaatha kaapaathu’, while making a child cry inconsolably! In […]

Papanasam (Music review), Tamil – Ghibran

Yeya en kottikkaaraa has an easily appealing tune harking back to Kutti Puli’s Aruvaakkaara. Ghibran’s musical layering is impeccable, and Sundar Narayana Rao seems to be vocalizing Kamal Haasan’s voice mannerisms! Hariharan breezes through the deeply contemplative, possibly-Charukesi’ish Vinaa, even as Ghibran loads it with flourishing, ominous orchestration. Of the instrumental pieces by Sofia Session […]

Jil (Music review), Telugu – Ghibran

Man on fire has a fully loaded rock sound, but despite Bianca Gomes’ impressive vocals, the tune is commonplace. Shalmali is scintillating in Jil jil jil; the tune too traverses through assorted melodic phases and the overall effect is fantastic. Swing swing‘s EDM sound is alluring, no doubt, but is predictable too. Yemayindhi vela is […]

There is a strong undercurrent of interest in immortality all through Uttama Villain, as if Kamal Haasan wants to ensure that at least his body of work remains immortal. It starts with the magnificiently mounted Iranian naadagam, where Hiranyakashipu assumes he is immortal, till Vishnu finds a loophole. The song comes out better in the […]
