Ethir Neechal (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Posted by Karthik

Nijamellam maranthu‘s sound is a mix of hip-hop and a beguiling range of curious sounds! Dhanush and Anirudh seem to have solid fun singing it even if it’s all heavily synthesized. Anirudh is especially effective in Boomi enna suthudhe, a song that recalls parts of Kolaveri, but is still a whole new package, with a fabulous set of instruments and wonderfully constructed interludes. Dhanush joins Velmurugan in the manic kuthu Local boys – even within the pulsating template, the song’s range of rhythm changes and unique sounds is enthralling! Velicha poove‘s mix of flute and strings over the engrossing percussion works perfectly for Mohit Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal. The short Un paarvayil is the lone track that seems templatized as the composer seems to be dipping a lot into his limited repertoire of sounds. But things end on a superb high with the punchy title song, penned with verve by Valee and sung by Anirudh, Yo Yo Honey Singh and Aadhi. The motivational feel of the track comes out well in the sprawling, catchy sound, even as it provides LOL-worthy response to, ‘Who is this Honey Singhu?’. With Ethir Neechal, Anirudh proves that he’s not a one-hit or one-album wonder!
