Kasavu njoriyumoru pulari is simply outstanding! Gopi employs Sriranjani-raaga in an austere, evocative package and lets Gayathri Varma completely own the wonderful melody. Similarly, in Unarukayaano, Gopi layers the steady thrumming backdrop that eventually moves on to a captivating folk rhythm over Sayanora Philip’s soaring vocals to create a highly engaging song. Kaattil ila has […]

The Dulquer Nivin Fahad song is a one-trick pony that rides on a simple pop tune that Gopi usually composes in his sleep. The Kalyanam song is no patch on Gopi’s earlier Mangalyam song from Bangalore Days. The title song seems to be composed by Gopi’s auto-tuning machine that listened to some random 80s one-hit […]

The Mahashay Paean (Bham Bham Siva) starts off with Murali Gopi’s frenzied devotional call and blazes off in a grand mix of pulsating rhythms, a chant-like structure, and Sivaranjani raaga. Murali’s diction strikes an odd note, though. Naiharva (credited as Nayee harvaa) is the complete opposite, with an ambient, minimal sound – apt for Kabir’s […]

Thechille penne is a lot of fun! Gopi Sundar gets Niranj Suresh to sing with a detached, I-am-high twang – perfect for the catchy tune! Gopi’s imagination in the interludes and the dubstep intrusions add to the song’s charm. Theru there ororo is trademark Gopi! Everything about the song is familiar, but the man’s sense […]

Unnatundi gundey‘s melody is affecting and easily likeable, with the anupallavi and charanam’s tunes distantly reminiscent of Ilayaraja’s melodies. Karthik and Chinmayi are—as always—fantastic! Sid Sriram does his magic yet again in Adiga adiga! Gopi hands him a somber melody with minimal orchestration that allows Sid’s impressive vocals to hold fort. Once Upon A Time […]

Joleem kooleem‘s reetigowlai raaga base is its clear and absolute highlight. Within that gorgeously likeable raaga, Gopi and his chorus have an easy winner. Interestingly, even Omal chiriyo seems to allude to reetigowlai raaga in the interludes, though the tune is predictable Gopi Sundar fluff, well sung by Ramshi Ahamed. Oduvile yathrak, in both versions—by […]

Sathya (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

As soon as the first interludes led by the strings start in Chinthicho nee, you know you are in a Gopi Sundar song! Gopi makes fantastic use of Vaikom Vijayalakshmi’s versatility, particularly in the anupallavi, given the lovely semi-classical lilt most probably alluding to Kharaharapriya raaga! Kaattingathi vegam, sung by Sri Sankar, however, seems like […]

Team 5 (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

Sooraj Santhosh’s singing is pretty much the best thing about Azhcha, with Gopi going through the motions of creating a functional song with all familiar sounds. Habeebi, barring the corny sounds all through and Bollywood template, has a slightly better engaging tune. Megha pakshi is where the real Gopi surfaces! Madhu Balakrishnan gets a gorgeous […]

Agarotulla (Pathivaayi Njan) and Prema pusene (Kaalam Kettu Poyi) gain from better voices (compared to Shabareesh Varma) of Naresh Iyer and Karthik, respectively – the tunes remain pleasant and nice. Ninna leni (Chinna chinna), in Karthik’s accomplished voice, acquires an extra polish. Rajesh’s pièce de résistance continues to be Malare… here, Evare – absolutely gorgeous! […]

Majnu (Music review), Telugu – Gopi Sundar

The second Suchit Suresan finishes the first 2 lines in Kallumoosi, Gopi adds a very short burst of violins, and that is precisely the Gopi trademark! The melody is spritely and instantly likeable and Suchit’s rendition makes it all the more better. The possible Charukesi strain in Oorikey ala is tantalizingly beautiful, even as Gopi […]
