Vinodayatra (Malayalam – Ilayaraja)

It’s a rather strange dual dichotomy actually. Firstly, the man gives us his best in languages other than Tamil, namely Telugu and Malayalam. The second one is that while two of Vinodayatra’s tracks are embarrassingly archaic, complete with exasperating orchestration and obsolete tunes, the other two are vintage Raja-styled gems. Kaiyetha kombathu is an exquisite composition with intricately beautiful orchestration that flows as smoothly as it gels with a gorgeous, undulating tune. Mandarappoo, on the other hand is an effortless composition with an array of usual Raja ingredients used optimally. This Sathyan Anthikad films will gain immensely from these compositions!
