Dharmadurai (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Endha pakkam is good old Yuvan, exactly an year later! Immersive melody over a simple, captivating rhythm, and superbly sung by Chinmayi and Rahul Nambiar, with a particularly lovely humming-based bridge connecting the anupallavi and pallavi. Aandipatti‘s Laxmikant-Pyarelal sound is an awkward surprise, while Poi vaada‘s early-Rahman sound is sedate and well sung by Srimathumita. Makka kalanguthappa loads punchy folk percussion over a fairly common-place tune with a familiar folk hook, sung with verve by Mathichiyam Bala. Naan kaatrilae is the soundtrack’s most incongruous – a spritely, modern rock’ish song sung really well by Karthik, as usual. Welcome back, Yuvan!
