Oru Oorla Rendu Raja (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman

Posted by Karthik

Mazhakatha‘s tune and rhythm is a fantastic mix of Latino and Middle Eastern, along with nadhaswaram too! Groovy tune and well sung by Haricharan, and Vandana sounding a lot like Chinmayi. Odum rayilai checks every box in Imman’s current arsenal of sounds – pulsating rhythm, a Raja’ish melody that is instantly likeable and sweeping strings… lovely listen! Actress Lakshmi Menon makes a superb singing debut with Kukkuru kukkuru, no doubt aided generously by Imman’s intriguing tune orchestrated to perfection with the iktara highlight! The rhythm in Sundari pennae is tantalizingly paced with that typical Muslim flavor and Shreya Ghoshal completely rules over the rendition like only she can. Imman laces the song with a lovely mix of electric guitar and harmonium to produce a wonderful effect! The soundtrack’s highlight is the absolutely gorgeous Shamugapriya-based kuthu title song. MK Balaji and Jayamoorthy are awesome in breathing life into it, while Imman builds the likeable Shanmukapriya base in the background with an almost Ilayaraja’esque fervor, along with some more unique additions in the second interlude and in the ending! Imman brings together his brand of musical mix really well here – the tunes, the sound, the singing… all work in great cohesion!
