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 […]

Thozha (Music review), Tamil – Gopi Sundar

Baby odathe is flamboyant, with fantastic a horns section, handled enthusiastically by Shankar Mahadevan. Puthitha is Karthik’s show and Gopi’s ebullient tune surprises with solo violin and chorus hooks. Eiffel mele is even more appealing; Ranjith and Suchitra are fantastic! Vijay Prakash rocks Enadhuyire‘s 80’s pop ballad sound, while the title song is just about […]

Uyiril‘s ethereal tune rides on Chinmayi’s indulgent vocals, set to a serene guitar-backed sound. She also rules over the breezy Kaathu kidandha, punctuated by Gopi’s trademark chorus. Kadhal kolluthadi‘s enchanting melody invokes Ilayaraja’s Sumam prati sumam*, and Gopi orchestrates it beautifully. Punjiriyo mixes the Malayalam sound to Tamil cleverly, while Adada, while being perfectly melodious, […]

Naan maatti konden is light and frothy, with every familiar sound associated with Gopi. The ode to Bangalore gets a slightly different treatment in Ranjith’s Paraparapa, with less of Bryan Adams, thankfully. Aaga motham ennai shuns Thumbi penne’s reggae-base, but continues to be a punchy ballad, in Gopi’s own vocals. En vizhiyin kanavu is the […]

Ma Chu Ka (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

Najim Arshad continues to sound uncannily like Karthik in Maanasam, a nursery rhyme like Christmas song that’s easy on the ears. Gopi handles Paanbum koneem‘s simple pop melody easily; it’s all familiar, predictable and pleasant. The soundtrack’s easy pick is Neeyen sayahna swapnathil that Gopi picks up again to sing it himself. It’s the kind […]

Seethamalakshmi has the perfect tempo for the easily likeable tune from Gopi, with his trademark violins. Yazin Nizar’s singing is effortless, particularly in the higher pitches, even adding a nice twang to the end of Seethamalaksh’mey’! Tarajuvvaki is energetic and pulsating, with the necessary amount of Hindi as prescribed in Telugu film songs and a […]
