Tholi Prema (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Raghu Dixit’s Break The Rules is an uptempo song with a neat ‘Mohana murali’ semi-classical interlude. Sunona Sunaina has a funky, likeable bounce and Rahul Nambiar’s singing makes it better. Thaman’s familiar backgrounds return in Allasani vaari, though Shreya’s vocals and Kamalakar’s flute make a significant difference. Kala Bhairava’s title song has a searing pathos […]

Sketch (Music review), Tamil – SS Thaman

In Kanave, Thaman goes back to his Eeram sound! The melody is effortlessly appealing. Atchi putchi is adequately raucous kuthu that checks all requisite criteria. Cheeni chillaallee sounds a lot like early Rahman songs, with an especially melodic anupallavi. Andrea’s pronunciation of ‘Dhadikaara‘ was perhaps really bad; that’s one way to explain THE Sudha Raghunathan […]

Thaman’s recreated title song lives on the borrowed steam of Vishal-Shekhar’s original 2006 version. The kuthu elements Thaman adds are trite, at best. Maine tujhko dekha has Amaal Mallik awkwardly proving that he is indeed Anu Malik’s nephew! He lifts, just like his uncle, Linear’s Sending All My Love again, in the guise of insipid […]

Mahanubhavudu (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Rendu kallu has an easy charm, with a captivating hook and Armaan Malik handles it impeccably. M.M.Manasi and Geetha Madhuri are effortlessly good in Thaman’s Mayamalavagowla-raaga title song, with a lovely solo violin by Shandilya. In Kiss Me Baby, Thaman brings his brand of punchy electronic sounds and with that likeable tune, it works perfectly. […]

Chotisi jindagi is a straight-forward Thaman style techno song with its rhythm-quotient aimed at being foot-tapping. Dhum dhum is no different, with its energetic sound and punchy vocals by Sri Krishna. Rabba rabba is fantastic – its minimal rhythm builds into a heady sound after the first minute, while Thaman layers it with an absorbing […]

Thaman splits Sarrainodu into 3 melodies and 3 dance tracks. Of the melodies, Telusaa is the sweetest, with lovely vocals by Sameera Bharadwaj and Jubin Nautiyal. Athiloka sundari is Vishal Dadlani’s show and Thaman’s rolling percussion gives him superb company. You are my MLA has utterly corny lyrics, but in a simple, addictive tune! Of […]

As if Junior NTR is an accomplished singer, he lends his voice to Puneeth in Gelaya. Helped by Thaman’s digital wizardry, he pulls it off well, for the simple, likeable tune. The digital vocal processing continues in Yenaithu where Kajal Aggarwal gets her voice severely ‘managed’, with Puneeth leading the captivating melody that has the […]

Dictator (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Divya Kumar holds the racy, techno Ganesh bhajan, Gam gam together mighty well, but its Thaman’s energetic orchestration that really is the star. What’s Up Baby and Tinga tinga are incredibly templatized in every conceivable way, as if the tunes composed themselves, in self-extrapolation mode. Chura chura‘s ambient sound and gentle tune gets significantly better […]

Saahasam (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S

Pudikkum, Angry Bird and Sayang Ku offer progressively degrading lyrics – it’s only Thaman’s backgrounds that hold the songs together. Mohit Chauhan sings Angry Bird with terrible diction, while in Pudikkum, Thaman keeps it interesting with a veena and nadaswaram layer. Desi girl is typical Thaman kuthu. Oh Madhu would have Crazy Mohan in tears […]

Kick 2 (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Bhole’s singing is severely manipulated in Mummy, but it goes well with the song’s playful nature. Masthani is standard-issue Thaman – passable fun. Thaman showcases his prowess in Temple song – imaginative and expansive sound, while Kick is an easily addictive folk foot-stomper! Where Thaman hits it out of the park is in Nuvve nuvve […]
