Music review: Odipolama (Tamil – D.Imman)

Vaalu paiyane is something Imman churns out in his sleep and puts us into sleep, while Poochandi’s Junkyard version with the title phrase sounds considerably better. With its subtle Middle Eastern sounding base, Aruvi pola is a reasonably interesting number and the Imman-sung Ragala kaara maamanaaru has a groovy and addictive structure and tune! The soundtrack’s clear winner is the hyper-infectious Ading ading; Imman and Rita sing this joyous track with such verve that it’s impossible not to tap your feet along! As if to make up for his past debacles, composer Imman evolves and show promise, if only half-heartedly.
