Music review: Seval (Tamil – GV Prakash Kumar)

Posted by Karthik

Strongly reminiscent of Rahman’s rustic scores, Namma ooru and Thaayaramma are strictly temlplatized, with only the engaging, gossippy lyrics making an impact. Odamarathu mullapola is no better – that stock, pseudo-rustic rhythm is oh-so-boring now. Thulasi chediya is more Hari than the composer – a standard melody expected in a Hari film. Out of the two pathos numbers, Naresh Iyer’s Paarvayile oru yaekkam is considerably better than the perfunctory Kannamma – the choice of singer, being the main reason. Hari has already tried Bharadwaj, Harris and Yuvan; in Seval he gets GVP to make a stale blend of all three!

Keywords: Bharat, Simran, Poonam Bajwa, GV Prakash Kumar
