Aalangiliye is incredibly pleasant and so very likeable across the melody, the interludes, the singing, with a more-than-generous dollop of early Rahman, particularly Aathangara marame. The gentle, lilting kuthu Karukku kallangolu gains enormously from Anirudh’s oh-so-casual rendition, with Sean Roldan’ish intrusions like that nadaswaram interlude. Andha madhiri ponna ups the ante, with lovely strings, tabla and reggae’ish layer meandering alongside the amiable tune, helping Ravi G elevate the song significantly. Sean handles Enga pona‘s pathos elegantly, again, seeking help from the searing violin layer, but Blaaze’s screams douse much of Iruda poruda‘s bravado. Pretty impressive mainstream stuff by Sean Roldan.
