Angamaly Diaries (Music review), Malayalam – Prashant Pillai

The profusion of atmospheric sounds in Ayalathe is both disconcerting and alluring! Shreekumar Vakkiyil’s involved vocals sit on top of Prashant’s lively, impromptu’ish backdrop! The three traditional songs, sung by Angamaly Pranchi, are incredibly natural, more so because of the brass-band orchestration – the approach being similar to composer Balabarathy’s string of gaana songs used to great effect in Thalaivaasal (1992). The soundtrack’s stunning highlight is, of course, the 5-version’ed Do naina (La vettam)! It’s a tantalizingly short, dreamy melody that sounds like something plucked out of Shankar-Jaikishan’s Pyaar hua iqraar hua (Shree 420)! Prashant’s music continues to be delightfully unslottable!
