Godha (Music review), Malayalam – Shaan Rahman

Gowry Lekshmi owns Aaro nenjil (less interesting desi mix, though), particularly the anupallavi’s flowing phrases, on Shaan’s beautiful tune with an addictive chorus high and folk percussion. Sithara Krishnakumar handles the slow, alluring Wow Song wonderfully, layered with the uncredited male ‘wow wow’, while Radhika Sethumadhavan’s humming in Captain’s Honour is aptly soulful. Kannetha and Innalekalil (with an interesting Treadmill mix) have Sachin Warrier and Niranj Suresh handling Shaan-hallmark likeably high-pitched melodies. Manayathu and Kannanjunnoru showcase Vineeth and Shaan’s narrative prowess, but the ‘Punjabi-tinged’ songs, O Rabba and Welcome to Punjab fall flat. Lots of melodic punches in this Godha!
