Jeevitham ithu has a pleasant—albeit rather generic—sound that borders on EDM, and Najim Arshad handles it well. Kadha parayana flows even better, with a nice pop-ghazal-sufi mix-like sound, really well sung by Rijisha and Aalaap Raju. Roopa Revathy’s vocals is phenomenal in Olangal moodum, a moody, somber and sparsely orchestrated lullaby where her singing, and […]

Thennal nilavinte is good old Shaan-Vineeth magic, given how tuned-in the duo is, with each other’s musical sensibilities. The melody, with a gorgeous violin backdrop, is immersive, and superbly sung by Vineet and Aparna Balamurali. The parody’ish tone of Nakkile prakkukal is accentuated by Mano’s exaggerated style of singing and just about passes muster. Oronnoronnayi […]

There’s a whiff of yesteryears’ retro in Neelakkannulla maane that’s very inviting, sung incredibly by Vijay Yesudas and Shweta Mohan! Mele mukilodum and Sooraj’s lone contribution, Vaanam mele are odd mixes – the enthusiasm they put up in the tunes seem drowned in the unusually lackluster backgrounds. Shaan’s immersive tune rules as much as Hesham’s […]

Ee shishirakaalam is a sweet melody that comes together with those gorgeous violins, and Vineeth and Kavya Ajit’s fantastic singing. The Onam song, Thiruvaavaniraavu is propped beautifully by Unni Menon and Sithara Krishnakumar’s vocals, with an resonant, authentic folk sound. Shaan’s ode to Dubai is serene and aptly dreamy, with an endearing, persistent mandolin-like sound. […]

Shaan makes a heady mix of techno sounds and a highly engaging melody in Ende maavum poothe. He also sings it together with Vineeth Sreenivasan and Arun Alat, and a particularly fantastic rap layer by Rzee. In Maruda, there’s a damn good mix again, this time using a wedding music band’s sound over a incredibly […]

Vaikkom Vijaylakshmi is consistently becoming that kind of a singer who completely owns a song; Kaikottum kandittila is no exception. Beyond the Rahman’ish violins in Neelambalin, the tune is gorgeous, thanks also to Arun Alat’s endearing vocals. Enne Thallendammaava is massively funky, with Shaan and Vineeth having a lot of fun singing it along with […]

The title song has a wonderfully likeable, hush’y tune! Gopi’s own vocals goes really well with the male version, while Pavithra Menon goes aggressively fangled in the female version. Minmini’s Kanmaniye is soft, simple and serene – the waltz wafts beautifully! Manjupeyume is no different – almost whispery, endearing melody, brilliantly delivered by Najim Arshad, […]

Shaan sounds considerably better in Chayunnuvo than Aaromale, but both songs have tunes that are thoroughly likeable. The former’s morph into punchy technopop is fabulous, while the latter’s almost-reggae’ish lilt is neat too. Doore doore, in both its variants, offers an engaging tune, though Rinu Rezak’s minimal version trumps Vineeth’s more boy-band’ish version. There’s a […]

Innaleyolam is a standard Malayalam melody, but the aptly chosen vocals of Vijay Yesudas and Swetha makes a big difference, along with the soft, amiable lilt. That Soni de nakhre (Partner) rhythm makes its appearance in Malayalam too, but in a Hindi song – Ab kya hua hei; catchy and well-sung by Shan Johnson, Kavya […]

Kattu mooliyo has the alluring combination of Vineeth’s thoroughly likeable vocals and gorgeous music by Shaan, topped by that beautiful sax! Job Kurian does the honors for the charming folk tune in Mandaarame, while Remya Nabeesan handles Ee mazha megham like a pro, aided by Shaan’s enchanting tune that traverses a ghazal’ish style to eventually […]
