Nee-Na (Music review), Malayalam – Nikhil J Menon

Everything just works in I Remember You – that scratchy record prelude, an immersive and ambient pop tune and of course, Shaktisree Gopalan in spellbinding form, completely different from her conventional film songs so far. Nikhil’s reprise of the song is good, but no match to the former. Sachin Warrier does a great job in Then nila, a gorgeous guitar-led ballad, with a lovely long, strings-driven phrases. Where Gravity Fails is the only sore note of the soundtrack – awkward, put-on English slow rock indie sound. But for this track, Nikhil makes a confident film debut in Lal Jose’s Nee-Na.
