Anirudh gets lost in Mun sellada‘s chorus, with ADK’s rap gaining prominence in the rousing template. Vijay Narain, who sounds a lot like Santhosh in Poi vazhva, adds a neat layer to its lilting pathos. Kalpana Raghavendar’s humming adds life to Adho theme. Kondattam is typical Santhosh – wonderfully imaginative Central Asian-style sound that builds-up […]

Ka ka ka po starts off well, but the odd middle portion fails to capitalize on the quirky sound. Parava parandhuchu makes fantastic use of its retro tune that Pragathi and Srinisha deliver wonderfully, with Santhosh’s aptly funky sound. Pangaali builds its sound well, amidst Arun Raja’s talk-like delivery. Santhosh’s jazzy sound comes to the […]

The instantly sing-along’ish title song comes alive in Vishal Dadlani’s angst’y vocals. In Jhalli pataka, Santhosh craftily mixes foot-tapping kuthu rhythms with a very blues’y tune and Sunidhi makes the odd combo work beautifully! Dil ye ladaku is Santhosh’s trademark sound, with a brilliant profusion of violins to help Monali’s tantalizing vocals. Jagaa khunnas is […]

A decade ago, Happy would have been a gaana song. Santhosh Narayanan turns the same lyrics (hilarious, ponder-worthy, by Vivek) into a funky, rhythmic tune! Pogiren has standard-issue inspirational lyrics and even Kalpana Raghavendar sounds less impressive; it’s only Santhosh’s soaring music that holds the song. Rasathi has Santhosh’s trademark – unusual and alluring orchestration […]

Keba’s electric guitar and bass are instantly alluring in Kutti poochi, adding an almost surreal layer to what is essentially a simple, resonant folk tune. Manicka Vinayagam carries Muthamil’s lyrics beautifully, while Balu’s nadaswaram plays superb jugalbandhi with the rest of the trippy sound. Poo avizhum pozhudhil builds itself into an incredibly likeable melody and […]

The title song has fantastic chorus, overlaid on a groovy techno-kuthu sound. Santhosh’s delightful choice of instruments comes to the fore in Kakidha kappal, expertly handled by Gana Bala. Bala’s other song, Irandhidava, the retro-parody is less impactful, in comparison. Aagaayam theepidicha is Pradeep’s show, with his evocative singing, but Santhosh packs a significant punch […]

Rita and Antony Dasan’s unusual vocals and Santhosh funky music run riot over Kannamma. Ding dong is uber cool gangsta rap transposed to Tamil, while Pandi naatu’s brass band sound is intermittently interesting. Dhesayum ezhandheney is Vishal Bharadwaj’ish in approach; ambient sounds and Meenakshi Iyer’s lovely vocals. Hoo haw’s spaghetti western sound is imaginative. The […]

Cuckoo (Music review), Tamil – Santhosh Narayanan

Manasula soora kaathey is exquisite! Whether it is RR and Divya Ramani’s beautiful vocals, or that mesmerising Keeravani-base tune that sounds like Ilayaraja’s beautiful melody from the 80s… or that magically soft orchestration… astoundingly beautiful! Agasatha, with its persistent violin base, is very Santhosh, in outlook, but the tune is involving enough. Such is the […]

Come na come uses the schoolboy’ishly well-known abuse, set to a simple, catchy tune, complete with rap and earthy vocals. Andrea rocks Mama douser, a raucous, one-sentence song with free-flowing jazz goodness! Kovai Jaleel’s vocals and Sathosh’s music capture the 60s wonderfully in Ellaam kadandhu, while Rob Mass’s Sudden Delight is superbly trippy! Saga is […]

Naanaaga naanindri‘s minimal arrangement demands much from Pradeep and Kalyani and they deliver pretty well for its unconventional tune! Pradeep’s vocals power Oru murai too – a fabulously melodious ballad. Andril paravai seems more like Santhosh’s Pizza track – well-crafted, glitzy disco pop! Even Ilavatta thalam stands out with its uniquely funky take on kuthu […]
