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 […]

Aadu annatha makes interesting use of saarangi in what’s essentially kuthu and gains spunk in anupallavi, with Velmurugan leading it in his usual style. Aavaaram povukkum‘s Aasaya kaathula ambitions are apparent, and Megha is impressive in the vocals. Sanjana Divaker Kalmanje is fantastic in singing the piano-led melody of Natta nadu iravula, even as GVP […]

Kambikara vetti traverses through two distinct tunes and rhythms and both are engaging, thanks to earthy vocals by VM Mahalingam and Ananthu, besides Thanikkodi’s absorbing folksy lyrics. Appappa is a soft, minimal melody – Shreya and GVP breeze through it easily. Karuppu nerathazhagi could have been composed by Devi Sri Prasad, but it’s a lively, […]

Javed Ali and Sheya Ghoshal handle the gorgeously slow-burning techno-ghazal combo sound of Kangalilae very well – GV Prakash’s tune is the clear winner here. LED kannala, however, is standard-issue techno-kuthu that fails to engage despite the punchy sound. Tipu is the sole saving grace of Why machi why, another students-song that addresses mighty predictable […]

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

Barring the corny lyrics, Vandha mala has limited engaging power, using a simple, jaded tune. Unnale is a surprise because it is no sung by Saindhavi – seems tailor-made for her; still, nice enough waltz’y tune wandled well by Shankar Mahadevan and Shreya. Sattena idi mazhai fares even better, with its funky melody line and […]

Barring the fact that GVP sings about pasta instead of a woman he’s supposed to address, Penne penne has a lovely tune, beautifully crafted with the accordion sound and that surprising ethereal second interlude featuring Yaazhini! Angae ippo is only mildly engaging, the tune not quite sitting comfortably atop that EDM sound, while Pondicherry too […]

Azhagu, understandably, holds a strong whiff of Indira’s Nila kaigiradhu – the instantly likeable, ethereal tune and Unnkrishnan’s daughter Uthara evoking an adorable innocence akin to Harini in the earlier song. Kokkara kozhi is faux-folk done reasonably well – very familiar Rahman style that is occasionally enjoyable. The composer uses the echoing ghatam sound brilliantly […]

GVP builds Yelelo wonderfully, and sings it well too; the world music and folk mix is enticing! Gana Bala and Vijay Prakash complement each other well in the catchy Lovely ladies, backed by some exotic sound and Aryan Dinesh’s rap. The composer’s eclectic orchestration is the clear highlight in Penne, but the soft, winsome melody […]

Kaadhal nergayil is perhaps Prakash’s n’th song with a similar structure – semi-Hindustani’ish sound and a likeable melody; good till it lasts, but too familiar. Gaana Bala runs amok in Don’t worry be happy like only he can – typical, but good fun. Rajadhi raja is a bland, lifeless hero intro song, while the Gita […]

Facebook login is gimmicky in every sense, with a flat tune to boot! Nee enna pesuvai (both versions!) drones on like a post-heydays boy-band ballad, while Get ready for my mojo is no different, with its 90s pop sound. Who is JK, with pedestrian lyrics by Cheran himself and heavily auto-tuned voice of the composer, […]
