Merkilae Merkilae is such a welcome relief. That Joshua Sridhar is still around and is able to get an opportunity! It’s such a breezy melody, accentuated by Sathyaprakash’s superb singing. The pallavi is incredibly addictive, but when Johsua layers the strings in the anupallavi when Sathyaprakash goes, ‘Idhu pudhiya arimugam’, you know you listening to […]

Janaganamana‘s easily catchy pop sound is significantly spruced up by Raghu Dixit’s endearing vocals. Rapper Chandan Shetty’s digitally processed version does a darn good job in Baramma baare‘s electro swing vibe, while Haricharan gets an easy winner in Mula mula, a wonderfully lush melody with a strong whiff of Charukesi raaga. Pi pi pi‘s highly […]

Kaatril eri‘s bubblegum-pop is droning, but is catchy nonetheless. Man meedhu is totally Rajesh Krishnan’s show! Rajesh sounds like a younger SPB and holds Joshua’s engaging and lilting melody and Na.Muthukumar’s lyrics eulogising women beautifully. Swetha Mohan is fantastic in Nadhiyil vizhundha, an easily likeable melody marked by captivating orchestration by Joshua. Welcome Boys is […]

Nenjamae en nenjamae has a steady, thrumming rhythm and a easily likeable low-key melody that Haricharan and Harini deliver admirably well, complete with really nice semi-classic portions in the interludes. Mayil thogayin sounds distinctly like Dharan Kumar’s compositions, but it’s whispery melody works thanks to Ranina Reddy’s vocals. The song’s instrumental version makes the Dharan […]

Prem’s coarse voice goes well with Harakalu angi‘s rhythmic, folk’ish tune, with Joshua using the title in an interesting, catchy manner. Yaaranu kelali gives the by-now-completely-Mano-Murthyed Sonu Nigam a lovely slow, captvating melody sink into! Summaniradene is very, very early-Rahman – engaging tune, sung well by Hariharan, while Saagide nodu‘s dated pathos feel is saved […]

Rajesh Krishnan owns Bisilu kudure that starts off with its guitar-laden ballad style melody, but takes on the desi twist rather well mid-way. Gand janma and Googly gandasare are catchy, but with rather predictable templates. Pawan Wadeyar lifts the title song with his vocals, aided by Joshua’s engaging tune, while Sonu Nigam and Haricharan are […]

Whistle (Music review), Kannada – Joshua Sridhar

Tippu is in solid form in Aru uruthu, breathing life into Joshua’s pleasant tune! Joshua appropriates his own Veppam track, Mazhai varum, in a slightly altered package to create Pala pala – it sounds considerably better in this funkier version! Veppam’s other song – the best – Kaatril eeram becomes Ura mandhi, and Haricharan and […]

Genius (Music review), Telugu – Joshua Sridhar

Benny and Apoorva whip up a heady kuthu in Chirigina notu! Joshua gets Shweta Mohan into his Kalloori groove in Yevevo kalale – lovely tune, well-orchestrated. But his boringly repetitive patterns emerge in Ambani alludaina and Yededa – painfully bland. Even Ye navvu venakala is no different, but for spirited vocals by Shankar Mahadevan, while […]

Vithagan (Music review), Tamil – Joshua Sridhar

Gappu aappu is a scintillating combination of Parthiban’s massy wordplay and a cool tune from Joshua. Parthiban’s verses stand out in three other melodies – Ikkuthae, Thanana thanthana and Kadalirandu; Shreya Ghoshal, Swetha Mohan and Chinmayi rule over the songs respectively given their gorgeous tunes. Vegamaai is uncomfortably close to Harris’ sound, complete with a […]

Sometimes nelapaina, Nee navvula and Hey Okka merupai meander along without causing any kind of impact, but, thankfully, Saathyamena rekindles Joshua’s sound from his Tamil debut; with Karthik and Swetha crooning, this is a lovely listen. Vayase nidura, after that soft start, builds up the melody quite well into a very tuneful song! Fashion show […]
