Trissur song, with its flashy brass sound, seems intentionally corny. Sannidanandan handles the racy sound well. Innale innale, sung by Niranj Suresh, is so very Gopi! A low-key, guitar-driven melody that meanders with unhurried pleasantness and evoking the composer’s Telugu repertoire. Niranj is behind Kaate poora kaate as well, a song that sets the Diwanji […]

Vimaanam (Music review), Malayalam – Gopi Sundar

Vaaniluyare has everything one expects from Gopi – pleasant melody and his trademark strings, but somehow, it all sounds too familiar. The song’s other expression, Anthimaanam, by Nandini Srikar is the soundtrack’s best, with a somber, soaring melody and excellent guitar by Sumesh Parameswar. Anthike varikente‘s serene carnatic base is a beautiful setting for the […]

2 Countries (Music review), Telugu – Gopi Sundar

Ullasamlo has an easy rhythm and a fairly engaging tune that doesn’t aim for anything more. Vareva Dollar Baby is Gopi trying his own Andhra-style kuthu – the sound is intact, but this is Gongura-in-coconut oil. Hey People trudges along with its generic Goan sound. Cheliya cheliya is trademark Gopi, literally, given he reuses his […]

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 […]
