Life is beautiful has a joyous sound, but nothing much besides that given the staid tune. Dorikaade starts out in a similar way with Megha’s voice heavily digitized, but does pick up steam mid-way, impressively. Ye pilla pilla is incredibly simple – almost a couple of lines, but the sound is wonderfully catchy dance music, […]

Vaa Deal (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S

Paesi paesi is typically Thaman – a slow-burning melody set amidst minimal, ambient backgrounds and very well sung by Haricharan, with even the vocal chorus doing a great job. Andharu andharu has Velmurugan at his highest pitch, but the kuthu song is way too predictable. The title song is considerably better, with a pulsating sound […]

Sandi muni is a frenzied Mayamalavagowlai, delivered by Haricharan with the right attitude. Leon also assembles an engaging rhythm base for it! Shakthisree, in Vaaya veera lifts the melody to new heights, with Leon again creating backgrounds that are more interesting than usual. Thaman’s Motta paiya is similar, engaging melody with even more interesting backgrounds. […]

Tiger (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Samayaa has a lilting sing-along, guitary feel and the Allah Bol hook works easily too, thanks to Anudeep’s Sonu Nigam’ish singing, with apt support from Thaman himself. Vaddura mama has a funky banter-style sound and along with the catchy tune, Thaman’s imaginative backgrounds help generously too; particularly the effort in the interludes. Love story‘s sound […]

Beeruva (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Bye bye bye nails the simple, foot-tapping tune really well – instantly likeable tune, easy on the ears, thanks also to Nivas’ singing. Chinnadana chinnadana too is adequately catchy, but for the Thaman template stock-rhythm playing peekaboo generously. Deepak handles Cheliya cheliya‘s sweeping melody well, and Thaman too keeps the backgrounds minimally techno’ish and interesting. […]

Sattunnu enna has sounds and chorus usually associated with Thaman’s music, but the tune is gentle and litling, unlike many of his recent song. Hariharasudhan offers his endearing vocals as good support. Robo romeo too, after a predictable start, doesn’t really take-off, but stays on a strangely feathery kuthu level that makes it easily likeable! […]

Vaalu (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S

Simbu seems to have given Thaman the brief of recreating Loosu penne and the result is Engathaan porantha – vastly similar, but lacking that smooth stickiness and loaded with awkwardly absurd lyrics. Hey vasamoakka, on the other hand, is very, very Harris Jayaraj! Good vocals by Anirudh and Andrea and the tune is catchy enough. […]

Damaal Dumeel (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S

Thaman seems to be in a hurry with Dumeel, recycling his old rhythm, but Usha Uthup’s vocals do add some novelty, occasionally sounding like LR Eswari in Osthi’s Kalsala. Same story in Odi idi – recycling of that very familiar rhythm, with Shankar Mahadevan coming to Thaman’s aid with his vocals. Pogadhae has Remya Nambeesan […]

Masala (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Ninu choodani‘s minimal orchestration and rich tune plays out like a Harris Jayaraj song and is very easy on the ears, thanks to what is possibly Darbari Kaanada raaga. Kotlallo okkaday is all sound and no fury; even Shankar Mahadevan’s punchy vocals do little to make it work. Meenakshi meenakshi has a simple enough, catchy […]

The title song is a catchy listen, with a Raakkamma-Kunitha puruvamum-style interlude and an authentic radio ad! Yamma yamma is Thaman-template all the way, but the simple catchy tune and Carnatic mandolin (guitar?) makes it work! The soundtrack’s highlights are the 2 Ilayaraja-redux tracks – Yaarukkum (and it’s mish-mash, Orae oru) appropriates it’s foot-tapping rhythm […]
