Music Review (Hindi): Babumoshai Bandookbaaz

Music Review (Hindi): Babumoshai Bandookbaaz
Music Composer: Gaurav Dagaonkar, Debojyoti Mishra, Joel Dubba, Abhilash

Album opens up with the stunner Barfani and the soulful track based on the Raag Jog has the vibes of Vishal Bharadwaj's composition. This song is undeniably the best song by Armaan Malik as per my opinion and the serene arrangements make this one blissful listen. The song's female version is an equally endearing listen sung beautifully by Orunima Bhattacharya. The Sitar strains in the song continue to linger in listener's mind even after the song ends. Gaurav Dagaonkar recreated the popular folk song in Uttar Pradesh and named as Aye Saiyyan, the song is adequately engaging especially for the brilliant harmonium base by Satyajeet Prabhu.Orunima aces the rendition and strikes the chord in this song also.Gaurav Dagaonkar recreated the 1979 hit song Ghungta and Neha Kakkar aces the song with her swag. Chulbuli is another gorgeous piece in the album, the lovely retro Jazz laden track sung in a splendid manner by Papon. The accordion pieces and the light drums make you swing while listening to the song. The soundtrack ends with another beautiful track, Khali Khali composed by Abhilash and Joel (Hopefully) Saregama muddled with the composer credits, it's not clear who composed these songs considering that 4 composers are involved in the soundtrack. However the son's minimal arrangements and earnest rendition by Mohit Chauhan makes it work.

Verdict: Engaging multi-composer soundtrack but it's annoying that Saregama messed up with the credits.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Barfani, Chulbuli, Khali Khali

Music Review (Tamil): Mersal

Music Review (Tamil): Mersal
Music Composer: A R Rahman

Aalaporaan Tamizhan comes off easily as one of the best introduction songs for Vijay but the song has a mind-boggling mix of free-flowing tune pieces and whether those pieces coherently fits together is a questionable one. Rahman builds the tune in a splendid manner with thumping grand percussions in the interludes and the lovely chorus portions topped by Naveen Kumar's flute. Kailash Kher does a decent job in the vocal department while AV Pooja's Raanjhanaa'esque cameo in the second half is a winsome show by the singer.Neethaane is a blissful listen and Shreya Goshal's saccharine brimming vocals is enough for the listeners to fall in love with the song. She easily overshadows the A R Rahman vocals in the track and AR Rahman easily scores when one considers the arrangements. Mohana Veena by Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt accompanied by the classical sargam in the second interlude by the composer makes this one spellbinding listen.

A R Rahman continues to relegate techno loaded song for Sid Sriram and the singer's suave rendition makes it listenable despite an average weird tune and with ample support from another talented singer Swetha Mohan. Rahman wields his potential in the arrangements especially the mix of classical guitar strums amidst the techno sounds in the first interlude is the sheer brilliance by the Mozart of Madras. Mersal Arasan is another frenetic percussion dominated song in the album similar to Aalaporaan Tamizhan and this one also features a discordant mix of tune bits despite the individual tunes are interesting enough to hold the listener for its run time. Naresh Iyer and GV Prakash sounds apt and the tongue rolling chorus is the easy takeaway in this mediocre assorted mix of distinct fragments.

Verdict: AR Rahman delivers the mass album for Vijay but the album is a short and weak one considering the hype around it with the Atlee- AR Rahman- Vijay combination.

My Rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Neethaane, Aalaporaan Tamizhan

Music Review (Malayalam): Pullikkaran Staraa

Music Review (Malayalam): Pullikkaran Staraa
Music Composer: M Jayachandran

Mathalathan Malaralle is an ear-pleasing melody with the tinge of waltz sounds flows consistently along with the mellifluous tune. The interludes are done in neatly with Vijay Yesudas takes care of the vocal department in an effectual manner. Tap Tap engages mostly due to the catchy hook base and exuberant singing by Sreya Kutty while the background stays in the heard before feel zone. Though the techno sounds are mixed, the tune sounds too dated. M Jayachandran strikes the chord once again with Vijay Yesudas in Kavalan Painkili, the pleasant tune aside, the lovely usage of accordion and the lovely chorus stays with the listeners even after the song ends. The soundtrack's stellar song is Kilivathilin Chare Nee, where everything blends together beautifully from the Anne Amie's endearing vocals to the soothing tune. Composer ups the ante with the blissful violin solos amidst the minimal backgrounds.

Verdict: M Jayachandran continues to enchant the listeners with his timeless melodies and Kilivathilin Chare Nee is the absolute winner from the soundtrack.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Kilivathilin Chare Nee, Kavalan Painkili, Mathalathan Malaralle

Music Review(Tamil): Kadhanayagan

Music Review(Tamil): Kadhanayagan
Music Composer : Sean Roldan

Kadhanayagan The Hero has ample screeching guitars and live drums while the arrangements tick off every element of the Rock song. However, the end result is far from appealing mainly due to the generic tune and sounds while Sean Roldan's singing is the solo respite in this decent song. On Nenappu's tune is tailor-made for Anirudh's vocals and Sean Roldan ups the ante with the brilliant folk arrangements dominated by the violin in the interludes along with harmonium and ghatam generously flowing throughout the song. GKB's lyrics are pedestrian one but flows well with the fun filled tune and arrangements.

Tappu Tippu works wonderfully, Thanks to the splendid playful trumpet show in the background and the swag in the arrangements are delightful to listen. Mukesh excels in crooning the amusing lyrics effectually and the Jazz tinged rhythms along with the exceptional singing makes this one works. Sunday Na bottle Edu is another mass number which meanders as it progresses and the weak sounds along with the typical tune make this one least enticing album. The techno sounds are also weary one and the pedestrian lyrics doesn't help either. Rise of a Hero theme has nothing extraordinary to offer and the synth dominated instrumental is the short and passable one in the album.

Verdict: Kadhanayagan is an average album from Sean Roldan and the album has hardly any memorable tracks.

My Rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: On Nenappu, Tappu Tippu

Music Review (Tamil): Vivegam

Music Review (Tamil): Vivegam
Music Composer: Anirudh

Anirudh makes sure that nothing goes wrong in survival with the fantastic rhythm in the background along with the upbeat synth sounds makes this one stupendously engaging one. It's a delight to listen to the rap by Yogi B after the hiatus while Anirudh easily throws the catchy la la hook and croons the song effectually. Thalai Vidudhalai starts with the optimistic dialogue by Ajith and followed by kickass heavy metal track crooned with the thumping powerhouse vocals of Anirudh and Agam band fame Harish Swaminathan. Anirudh brilliantly filled the interludes with screeching guitars and live drums while Siva's motivational lyrics is in tandem with the tone of the song.

Kadhalaada is the soundtrack's best and Anirudh's stellar arrangements especially the lovely violin solos accompanied by the mesmerizing Shashaa Tirupati while Pradeep Kumar does a commendable job and the singer is in stellar form with recent songs crooned by him with such a panache. Composer ends the track with the splendid Konnakol and violin solo. Veriyera is an another power packed rock track rides mainly on the splendid rendition by M M Manasi with adequate support from Poorvi and the tune is an average one while the arrangements stick to the genre of the song. Never give up is another stylishly made soundtrack with the loung'ish feels in the arrangements which work to its favour while Raja Kumari easily sails through the track. The interludes are an aural treat especially the second interlude and the gentle rhythm gels well with the vocals of Raja Kumari. The soundtrack's best Kadhalaada comes as reprise version and the beautiful melody is accentuated further by the slew of instruments from gentle piano to engaging violin towards the end. Though the track is short, the innate beauty of the tune makes this version also an immensely enjoyable. Anirudh ends the soundtrack with the theme track with the grungy rock base mixed with the stupendously minimal plucked strings and the track is sure to gel well with visuals. 

Verdict: Anirudh delivered the stylish engaging album for Ajith and the composer's experimentation continues to work as his recent albums.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Kaadhalaada, Thalai Viduthalai, Survival

Music Review(Telugu): Nene Raju Nene Mandiri

Music Review(Telugu): Nene Raju Nene Mandiri
Music Composer: Anoop Rubens

Devuditho Samaram strides on the typical anthemic strings dominated track in the backdrop accentuated by the energetic chorus portions. Anup Ruben's rendition is decent and the song may work well with visuals. Jogendra Jogendra's soundscape also treads on the similar path but being the short track, it fails to leave the lasting impact on the listeners.Kathulatho is the tweaked version of Devuditho Saranam with the different lyrics and the sound is as enjoyable as the song's original version but the song fails to offer nothing new except for the arousing chorus chants.

Radhamma Radhamma is the typical tune set in the backdrop of grand string dominated orchestration and the song is adequately enjoyable though the tune strides on the familiar zone. Vijay Yesudas owns the song and Divya Spandana's vocals sound to be a processed one. Sukhibava Annaru is the most contemporary sounding track in the album and also an enticing listen mainly due to the Shreya Goshal's splendid rendition. Ranjith ably supports her with his vocals while the composer throws in brilliant violin solos intermittently throughout the song. Sumangalai is the short melancholic version of Sukhibava Annaru and the track is the brilliant one thanks to the violin solos and the earnest rendition by Sravani.

Verdict: Nenu Raju Nenu Madiri's soundtrack also partly follows the Baahubali's soundscape, however, the contemporary sounds are enjoyable.

My Rating:7/10

Pick of the Album: Sukhibava Annaru, Radhamma Radhamma

Music Review (Telugu): Jaya Janaki Nayaka

Music Review (Telugu): Jaya Janaki Nayaka
Music Composer: DeviSri Prasad

Andhamaina Seetakoka Chiluka is the short neatly done track with great support from Keba Jeremiah's frenzy electric guitar and Chennai strings orchestra while the tune wise is a familiar. Sooraj Santosh's Vocals has been underutilized in this short passable track. Let's Party all night is the typical techno sound dominated track which has tried and tested feel written all over it from the moment Prudhvi Chandra's processed vocals throws at the listener. The tune has Devi Sri Prasad stamp and M M Manasi's vocals offer a brief respite in a hugely mediocre soundtrack. The mangling of folk song in the second half is an another irksome part in this track.Rangu Rangu Kallachodu is directly lifted from the DSP's stock tunes and the track's rhythm has heavy Deja Vu feel. Hemachandra and Shravana Bhargavi ups the ante of the languishing soundtrack with their energetic rendition. However, the song ends up being the passable wearisome listen in the album. 

Nuvvelle gains lot from the Swetha Mohan's pleasant vocals and DSP's engaging arrangements especially Saroja's Dilruba is employed brilliantly throughout the soundtrack. The tune reminds of the DSP's earlier Telugu hey-day and the track is an engaging listen till it lasts Thanks to the lead singer.Just Chill boss is another grossly underwhelming track where the staid techno rhythms by Kalyan makes the listeners yawn while M M Manasi tries hard to make the song enticing one but the pedestrian tune and arrangements doesn't help in any manner. Veede Veede's tune reminds of the umpteen number of Kailash Kher and DSP tracks and consistently the singer is pigeon-holed to the tracks of this kind. The arrangements offer nothing new and the track is not a bad one as well as not an enjoyable track either except for the brilliant solo violin by Balaji intermittently. DSP tries to revive Kevvu Keka magic in A for Apple with the same singer Mamta Sharma and with the slightly tweaked tune backed by the similar rhythm structure. One can switch back to enjoyable original version itself, rather than this slightly altered version and it's very baffling whether director wants these type of songs or DSP itself attempting these things.

Verdict: Jaya Janaki Nayaka is nothing but bunch of rehashed DSP's stock tunes and also those are done in an uninteresting manner.

My Rating: 5/10

Pick of the Album: Nuvvelle. Andhamaina Seetakoka

Music Review (Tamil): Aramm

Music Review (Tamil): Aramm
Music Composer: Ghibran

Ghibran showcases his prowess in the album's stunning opener Melam Kottuda and the blissful orchestra by Prague Philharmonic orchestra elevated the charm of the folk tune and Sikkander lyrics is in tandem with the movie's theme. The intermittent pauses for the verses and the sudden outburst of of orchestral sounds is a delight to listen. Vaikom Vijayalakshmi's effective vocals and Uma devi's beautiful verses makes Thoranam Aayiram and the singer's intonation in delivering the Tamil words is the aural splendor. Prithvi's percussion add the wonderful rhythm layer along with the captivating oboe sounds in the interludes from Prague Philharmonic orchestra. Polladha Kaalangal is the incredibly catchy hook in the track. Though Pudhu Varalaare falls tad below, strictly in comparison with the other tracks in the album, the orchestrsal brilliance of Philharmonic remains intact topped by minimal percussion makes this one also an engaging listen in the album.. The earnest rendition by Sundar Ayyar crooning Uma devi's lyrics deserves special mention.

Verdict: Ghibran shines in this short brilliant soundtrack with ample support from Prague Philharmonic orchestra and the singers delivering the top notch rendition for the immersive tunes.

My rating: 8.5/10

Pick of the Album: Melam Kottuda, Thoranam Aayiram

Music Review (Hindi): Qaidi Band

Music Review (Hindi): Qaidi Band
Music Composer: Amit Trivedi

Qaidi band soundtrack features two singers, Arijit Singh and Yashita Sharma as the film is about the band in the prison where the protagonists are leading vocals for the band. Arijit sounds quite different from his usual tone in most of the songs. 



       For the track titled I am India, the song sounds least patriotic and more of the celebratory festival music with the thumping percussions. However, the track is barely interesting one and even the title hook is also not a catchy stuff from the composer. The escape version sounds much better comparatively, mainly because of the harmonium and the consistent engaging background. Hulchul is the typical rock stuff from the composer with snazzy guitar strums in the interludes makes it an interesting listen despite treading on the familiar path of the composer. 

       Phir Nayi has an endearing melody sung by Yashita Sharma effectually while Amit layers the soft rock sound with a mesmerising flute solo and other sounds. Junooni lacks an arresting melody and soundscape becomes weary after initial few minutes. Udanchoo starts off in an interesting manner and the tune's intermittent surprises make this one an engaging listen. The arrangements are dominated by rock drums but with I'm India's flute version employed brilliantly along with the pleasant percussion sounds amidst the live drums. Apart from the deftly done bass line, Jag Mag has little to offer and the rap portions also come off as a pedestrian one. Poshampa is next to I'm India where Arijit's vocal is in another extreme from his usual tone and the track has nifty guitar strums backed by retro bass sounds. The highly energetic soundscape makes this one an enjoyable song in the soundtrack. The reprise version of Phir Nayi is also adequately engaging one, Thanks to Yashita's vocals and thumping march past rhythm in the background.

Verdict: Definitely not the composer's best despite the movie has the core theme as music and also not the bad one though. The album suffers mainly from the familiar Amit Trivedi's signature sounds in some of the songs.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the album: Phir Nayi/Phir wahi, Udanchoo, Poshampa

Music Review (Malayalam): Thrissivaperoor Kliptham

Music Review (Malayalam): Thrissivaperoor Kliptham
Music Composer: Bijibal



Maangappoolu is the typical Bijibal tune with old world charm and an endearing Anupallavi makes up for the heard before soundscape of the track. Though the arrangements are nothing out of this world, the simple, likeable pleasant sound makes this one engaging listen. Bijibal tried to take the different route for Kada thala Kola with the upbeat mix of synth and native percussion elements especially udukkai, however, the tune sounds pale when compared to the backgrounds. Sannidanandan spruces up the song with his energetic vocals despite sounds processed intermittently. Venne Vennakal Penne also sounds contrast to the sounds one can associate with the composer, however, Sayanora Phillip's vocals and the second interlude makes this one worthy listen. Oruthari Aasha's discordant backgrounds aside, the standalone classical tune is blissful enough to clasp the listeners.Vivek Moozhikkulam's confident vocal prowess is apparent in this short track and one wishes that Bijibal could have made this one full-length track. Pushpavathy who hails from Thrissur croons the fun filled Thrissooru and Bijibal's splendid backgrounds sounds is the highlight of the track apart from the top notch singing. Thaikkudam bridge's vocalist Vipinlal croons Kaantha and Bijibal employed Chenda melam exquisitely but the same cannot be said about the synth elements and also the track is short to make an impact.

Verdict: Bijibal produces a different album for the debutant RatheishKumar but the album falls short of awe factor despite engaging sounds throughout the tracks.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Oruthari Aasha, Maangappoolu, Thrissooru

Music Review (Telugu): Goutham Nanda

Music Review (Telugu): Goutham Nanda
Music Composer: Thaman

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a tedious listen and the templatized techno sounds from Thaman makes it hard to listen while 6 minutes duration of the song augments the boredom further. NSK Ramya's vocal brings the little respite while mangling of Yazin Nizar's vocals with processing continues with this track also.Black and white is another painful listen where Thaman reused the background rhythm from his selfie song in Kannada movie Jaguar. Divya Kumar's contrasting vocals being the only highlight in this pedestrian song where the familiar tune doesn't help the song either.

Basthi Dorasani starts off surprisingly well but soon spiralled downwards into the typical Telugu commercial song where the catchy hook is the rehash of Gandi baat. Nakash Aziz who is regular in Telugu songs these days salvage this song to some extent and Ramajoggaya Sastry's lyrics standard also dives deep along with Thaman's music.Bole Ram Bole Ram saves this soundtrack and credits to enjoyable pleasant melody with the flavour of Nuvve Nuvve from Kick 2 while the soundscape also follows the same song. However, the track is immensely enjoyable when compared to other tracks in the album while Ramachandra Murthy's flute and Chennai Strings Orchestra's violin in the interludes are the mesmerising stuff. Srikrishna and ML Sruthi breezes through the melody effortlessly. Theme of Goutham Nanda has nothing extraordinary to offer except for the deft usage of Kebab's guitar and the track may work well with the visuals rather than as a standalone track.

Verdict: Goutham Nanda is another forgettable commercial soundtrack filled with Thaman's templatized sounds and the rehash of his own tunes.

My Rating: 5/10

Pick of the Album: Bole Ram Bole Ram

Music Review (Hindi): Jagga Jasoos

Music Review (Hindi): Jagga Jasoos
Music Composer: Pritam Chakraborty




Ullu Ka Patha's buoyant vibe mainly because of Daniel Garcia Diego's flamenco guitars which easily transcends the listeners to the country side and Vivienne's ululle vocal is a catchy hook which Pritam brilliantly employed in the track. Arijit Singh and Nikitha Gandhi has such a fun in crooning this track which adds up to the charm along with the arrangements. Galti Se Mistake is where techno sounds meet Assamese tribal sounds and the fun track is adequately enjoyable Thanks to the energetic vocals of Arijit Singh and Amit Mishra and the tune is tailor made for Nakash Aziz's voice. Jhumritalaiyya's soft rock and thodi thodi hook is absolutely enjoyable one and Pritam used the chorus portions exceptionally well. The arrangements are done in a neat manner starting from the simple guitar laden prelude and eventually moving towards the soft rock one while Arijit Singh and Mohan Kannan sails through this breezy lovely song. Arijit Singh totally aces Phir wahi with his earnest rendition and Pritam kept the arrangements minimal with the enjoyable guitar laden portions and ends the song showcasing Arijit Singh's singing prowess. The addition of lovely saxophone and Arijit's usual ooh ooh sound is icing on the cake. Musafir is another soft rock genre song sung eventually by Tushar Joshi, the only song where Arijit's vocal is not in the soundtrack and the track is absolutely enjoyable thanks to the hummable tune and the track reaches crescendo towards the end with the thumping chorus portions.

Verdict: Pritam continues to deliver his best for Anurag Basu and the soundtrack is the best from the composer in recent times since Barfi. Hopefully, the remaining musical tracks which are due to release next week is equally enjoyable.

My Rating: 8.5/10

Pick of the Album: Ullu Ka Patha, Jhumritalaiyya, Musafir

Music Review (Telugu): Fidaa

Music Review (Telugu): Fidaa
Music Composer: Shakthikanth Karthick




Vachinde is a delightful celebratory song delivered by Madhu Priya's squeaky vocals and supported by Ramky's terse verse. However, Shakthikanth Karthick props up the song with the Kishore's Sitar and Biju's harmonium serves as a wonderful rhythm which sets the mood of the song. Suddala Ashok Teja's colloquial banter lyrics gels well with the tone of the song. Edho Jaruguthundhi is the standard English Pop material dominated by the synth elements by Santosh and the tune is pleasant and also very templatized one carried effortlessly by Aravind Srinivas and Renuka. One wishes that tune could have been better rather than following the well-trodden path. Shakthikanth shines in the native folk song Hey Pillagaada, penned by Vanamali and the prelude easily entice the interest of the listeners while the composer's interesting usage of Shyam Ravishankar's violin and Shruthiraj's Khanjira and Percussion adds the flavour to Vanamali's lyrics. The song ends with the brilliant solo show by violinist Shyam while Sindhuri's effortless vocals add charm to the song.

Oosupodu's melancholy-drenched tune is salvaged by wonderful arrangements especially the way Babu's trumpet and wonderful bass line by Keith Peters accompanied by Navin Iyer's flute. Hemachandra tries hard and able to sail through the tune well. 24 Violin's strings background makes this song enjoyable till it lasts.Hey Mister, once again falls into the zone of tried and tested tune, however, the song is adequately enjoyable, Thanks to the Martin's Saxophone and the catchy title hook. MC Chetan's rap portions blend smoothly with the Deepak's vocals. Fidaa is an another pleasant melody and though nothing extraordinary in terms of tune and the arrangements also, the track is adequately listenable till it lasts. Hemachandra and Malavika sound adequate enough to keep the song afloat. The composer effectively blends Hey Pillagada sound cue towards the end of the song. One wishes that Babu's banjo could have been used extensively and it would have made song more interesting one.

Verdict: Sekhar Kammula's music sense continues to be winsome one irrespective of the composer and Shakthikanth Karthick strikes in his sophomore soundtrack confidently.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Hey Pillagaada, Vachinde, Oosupodu

Music Review (Malayalam): Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum

Music Review (Malayalam): Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum
Music Composer: Bijibal

Kannile Poika's old world charms and sweet melody packaged in the ambient backdrop make this one irresistible listen and this sounds like the equivalent of Idukki from Maheshinte Prathikaaram, director's previous association with Bijibal. Ganesh Sundaram and Sowmya Ramakrishnan is pitch perfect with their renditions. Aayilyam derives a lot of benefits from the dark folk flavoured arrangements with brilliant flute prelude by Rajesh Cherthala, which sets the tone of the song. The chenda beats are brilliantly interspersed throughout the song. Sithara Krishnakumar's punchy vocals make this one engaging listen. Varum Varum sounds pleasant in the vocals of Bijibal dominated by Sandeep Mohan's guitar work, however this song fares tad low and also generic when compared to other two songs in the soundtrack.

Verdict: Bijibal continues his fine work this year and after Maheshinte Prathikaaram, Dileesh Pothan's combination with the composer works beautifully.

My Rating:7.5/10

Music Review (tamil): Podhuvaaga En Manasu Thangam

Music Review (tamil): Podhuvaaga En Manasu Thangam
Music Composer: Imman

Imman's tried and tested tune in Summa Irukkaradhu easy illa gets tiresome just after listening to the pallavi itself and the composer's melodious track are enjoyable even with the minor tweaks but his kuthu mass tracks are hardly interesting and Yugabharathi's colloquial lyrics adds fuel to the fire. Deepak's energetic singing alone is not enough to salvage this highly tedious song. Ammani is a highly interesting folk track with splendid vocals and Shashaa Tripathi's improvisations and humming are delightful to hear while the pleasing tune is adorned with highly engaging arrangements. Yugabharathi aces once again with his simple lyrics and the Srilankan Singer Diluckshan Jeyarathnam marks his debut with an adequately interesting song.

Yennaanu Solveno comes off more like a situational track and the singers Vandana Srinivasan and Sathyaprakash carry this soulful track single-handedly. Imman's thumping rhythm arrangements are the highlight in this short pathos song. Imman introduces another singer Rajaganapathy along with Niranjana Ramanan for the folk track Singakutty and the tune fails to clasp the listener despite the adequate mix of enticing elements in the background. The tune is largely languishing one despite it treads on the path of Imman's tried and tested tune repertoire. Pachi Parandhuruchi is an another uninteresting folk love failure track where both tune and arrangements hardly create any enthusiasm and the chorus also didn't work. The only solace being the second interlude and  Mannargudi Ramesh, autodriver turned playback singer and it's great that Imman continues to introduce new vocals in each and every album.

Verdict: Imman stick to his tried and tested folk tunes in Podhuvaaga Enmanasu Thangam and the result is highly underwhelming.

My Rating:6/10

Pick of the Album: Ammani, Yennaanu Solveno




Music Review (Telugu): Ninnu Kori

Music Review (Telugu): Ninnu Kori
Music Composer: Gopi Sundar

Unnatundi Gundey's arrangements can be easily associated with the composer and he kept it easily accessible with dominant strings while the tune is average and gets much engaging in the charanam portions of the song. Karthik and Chinmayi who delivered wonderful tracks for Gopi Sundar album in Telugu, nails this melodious track also effortlessly. Adiga Adiga is an affecting melancholy which gains amply enough from Sid Sriram's vocals and the singer is pitch perfect with his rendition while Gopi Sundar's minimal guitar laden backgrounds accentuate the singer's prowess. The interludes are adorned with wailing violin solos in tune with the mood of the song. Sreejo's lyrics deserve special mention.

Once upon a time lo is a mass dance track which is interesting in parts but the tune fails to engage throughout the track. Though Arun Gopan tries to make the song little enticing with his vocals, the track lacks the instant catchy appeal and it works partially due to the amusing lyrics by Bhaskarabatla. In Hey Badhulu Chepavey, Gopi Sundar sets the upbeat tune for Anantha Sriram's pathos lyrics and though the tune sounds standard one, the interludes are Gopi Sundar'ish with an adequate mix of flute with classical tinge and string sections. Haricharan sails through the song effortlessly.

Verdict: Though Ninnu Kori falls tad low in  Gopi Sundar's splendid  Telugu repertoire, the soundtrack is adequately enjoyable while Nani continues to get the best music in his films irrespective of the composers.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Music Review (Tamil): VIP2

Music Review (Tamil): VIP2
Music Composer: Sean Roldan

Nada da Raja's screeching guitar riffs by Josh Mark Raj and Ramkumar Kanakarajan's drums aside, the track is typical grungy rock track where Yogi B's return after a hiatus doesn't help either. Dhanush sails through the tune effortlessly while the tune gets better towards the second half but still one can feel that song could have been better.Iraivanai Thandha Iraiviye sounds to be from the composer's recent smashing hit soundtrack Power Paandi and the composer strikes once again with the soulful melody backed by Sean Roldan and M M Manasi. The arrangements are delightful to hear dominated by Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra and Vishnu Vijay's mellifluous flute is brilliantly interspersed throughout the song.


Torture of Raghuvaran is another raucous kuthu track where tune falters behind and though the tune is a cakewalk for Dhanush vocals, the track fails to make it enticing one. The only silver lining in the track is undeniably Balasubramaniam's Nadaswaram and Ben Jaigopi's brass sections. Dooram Nillu's buoyant outlook along with Shakthisree Gopalan's vocals make this track enjoyable compared to other upbeat numbers in the album. Benny Dayal provides excellent support while Sean Roldan adequately made the arrangements favourable especially with the stupendous usage of plucked instruments in the interludes and the Sean Roldan's banter lyrics are the delight to hear.Empress Arrives theme as akin to the title sounds majestic with the dramatic strings sections accompanied by James Bond'ish Jai Gopi's trumpets and the theme track is satisfactorily engaging till it lasts.


Verdict: VIP2 is an energetic outing from Sean Roldan and the arrangements are sufficiently sensational but overall the album doesn't match its prequel because of its lack of instant catchy tracks.


My Rating: 7/10


Pick of the Album: Iraivanai Thandha Iraiviye, Dooram Nillu, Nada da Raja

Music Review (Tamil): Geminiganesanum Suruli Rajanum

Music Review (Tamil): Geminiganesanum Suruli Rajanum
Music Composer: Imman

Pradeep Kumar gets a stellar opening rock track, Ammukuttiye and the singer is pitch perfect with his rendition while much awesomeness comes in the arrangements. Karthik Iyer's kickass solo violin in the second interlude and classical tinge in the Keba Jeremiah's guitar riffs make this one earworm track in the album while Yugabharathi shines with his easy go lyrics. Imman delivers another charming melody, Kanmani which is strictly confined to the Imman's territory but at the same time the tune is enjoyable and ear pleasing till it lasts. In the backgrounds, the upbeat rhythm and Nathan's woodwinds do magic to the pleasant tune. Abhay Jodhpurkar's charming rendition makes this song easy another winner in the soundtrack.


Venilla Thangachi is a passable kuthu track which struggles to elevate beyond the mediocre level despite the lively show by Nakash Aziz and Ramya NSK. Balasubramaniam's Nadhaswaram being the only highlight of this forgettable track and Yugabharathi's lyrics didn't help the song either.Imman strikes back yet again with Aahaa Aahaa and the sensual vocals of Shreya Goshal with excellent support by Haricharan ups the ante of the track. The Ilayaraja'esque tune is adorned by the brilliant rhythm section conducted by Kaviraj accompanied by Nathan's woodwinds and Seenu's strings. Imman ends the soundtrack with another mediocre track Thambi Cuttingu, which starts with an enticing prelude but slips into the tried and tested insipid tune. Anthony Daasaan and Vijay Yesudas's vocals fail to lift the song and Yugabharathi's pedestrian lyrics adds little value to the languishing tune.


Verdict: Imman's melodies are easily accessible as usual but the fast paced tracks comes off as tiresome listen. Ammukuttiye being the irresistible track in this typical Imman album.


My Rating: 7.5/10


Pick of the Album: Ammukuttiye, Aaha Aaha, Kanmani.

Music Review (Tamil): Vikram Vedha

Music Review (Tamil): Vikram Vedha
Music Composer: Sam CS

Karuppu Vellai's grungy dark rock shades accompanied by Kebo Jeremiah's guitar riffs make this one stunning listen and the exciting prelude portion followed by Tana na hook is the highlight of the track. Sivam and Sam CS's throaty vocals gel well with the tone of the song. Overall Sam CS set's the right tone for the overall soundtrack with Karuppu Vellai. Sam CS ups the ante with the next track Yaanji Yaanji, lovely melody ballad where Anirudh and Sakthishree Gopalan aces the melody and makes this one enjoyable listen. However, the autotuning of Anirudh vocals could have been avoided. The show stealer is undeniably the buoyant usage of banjo and string instruments in the interludes apart from the mesmerising tune in the Charanam portions. Mohanraj deserves special mention in penning the captivating lyrics.


Tasakku Tasakku's free flowing percussions and an unusual tune make it an engaging listen till it lasts while Mugesh, MLR Karthik, Guna ably delivered the frolicking tune with ease while once again Sam CS scores in the interludes especially the first interlude and the style of the song reminds Santosh Narayanan quirky compositions. Yedhu Dharmam rides mainly on the exhilarating Chennai Orchestra's strings and cello symphony accompanied by grungy guitar riffs makes this short track adequately engrossing one and the instrumental may reach well with the visuals. Pradeep Kumar and Neha Venugopal bags the another folk-tinged melody Pogadha Enna Vittu and the singers enhanced the mesmerising melody with their singing prowess while Pradeep Kumar sails through the high-pitched portions with ease. Sam CS shines with his brilliant usage of mandolin and arousing string section in the second interlude. The underlying string section in the first interlude is a bliss to listen along with Kiran's solo flute.


Ghetto Chase and akin to its name the instrumental is fast paced with assorted sounds dominated by Chennai Orchestra's rousing string sections mixed with ample dosage of thoroughly engaging Seenu's Sarod solos. Idhu Emotion is another instrumental dominated by the plucked instruments and wonderful wailing violin solo section and the track is engaging till it lasts. Yedhu Nyayam rides mainly on the Chennai Orchestra's thrilling arrangements and the track is absolutely engrossing one and one hopes that visuals do justice to this track. Sangu Satham is an another interesting attempt by Sam CS and the composer packs the variety of sounds from Mandolin to ukulele in less than one minute backed by powerful Sethu Thankachan's vocals.Sam comes up with a much engaging extended version of Sangu Satham as Oru Kadha Sollatta and the instrumental is backed by yet another splendid usage of Chennai Orchestra's string sections and plucked instruments.


Verdict: Sam CS deliver the stunning soundtrack for Pushkar-Gayathri with ample support from Chennai Orchestra and the deserving composer gets his due with this engaging soundtrack.


My Rating: 8.5/10


Pick of the Album: Yaanji, Pogadha Ennavittu, Ghetto Chase, Oru Kadha Sollatta

Music Review (Tamil): Ivan Thandiran

Music Review (Tamil): Ivan Thandiran
Music Composer: S S Thaman

Dagalty's outmoded kuthu tune and the pedestrian lyrics fails to lift the song from the mediocre level while Thaman spruces up the proceedings in the interludes but overall the track falls flat. Rahul Nambiar's vocals being the only solace in this below average number from Thaman. Ivan Thandiran fares slightly better than the introduction song but strictly in comparison, otherwise, the title song has nothing extraordinary to offer. However, the rhythm and guitar riffs are neatly done by Thaman and Deepak Dev along with Yazin Nizar sails through the typical tune effortlessly.

Thaman tweaked his blockbuster Telugu track Telusa Telusa to Medhakavitta Medhakavitta and the result is astounding mainly because of the pleasant tune and the pitch perfect singing by Sanjana Kalmanje. Yazin Nizar ably supported her by crooning this dulcet melody while the interludes are adequately engaging.The instrumental version of Medhakavitta comes as a theme song and the splendid tune is adequately enjoyable dominated by mellifluous flute and keys section.

Verdict: Thaman's redux of Telugu blockbuster song saves this Ivan Thandiran and the short soundtrack fails to strike.

My Rating:6/10

Pick of the Album: Medhakavitta Medhakavitta

Music Review (Telugu): Duvvada Jagannadam

Music Review (Telugu): Duvvada Jagannadam
Music Composer: Devi Sri Prasad

The title song's tune, as well as intermediate Ganapathi chanting accompanied by the hodgepodge of classical and Percussion elements, come off as archaic one while Keba's racy guitar and Vijay Prakash's energetic vocal helps to elevate the song from the mediocre level. The title hook also sounds to be a pedestrian one from the composer. Asmaika is an easy winner from the composer and the track's astonishingly catchy background rhythm background by pitch perfect singing by MLR Karthikeyan and ever sweet Chitra's vocals make this one earworm stuff from DSP.  Kalyan's Konnakol and classical cues in the interludes blends smoothly with the appealing tune.

Mechukko's tune and Chiranjeevi invoked lyrics are purely for the purpose of whistle worthy moments for the on screen but not for the music lovers. Nakash Aziz sails through the typical Telugu composition effortlessly while Babu's trombone and guitars being the only solace in this composition. Seeti Maar is another techno dominated sounds with little recall value both in terms of tunes as well as arrangements. There is hardly any interesting elements in this 4 minutes song while Jaspreet Jasz and Rita's digitised voices also unable to salvage this tedious track from DSP. Box Baddhalai Poyi is an another mass track to showcase Allu Arjun's dance prowess and DSP has very little to offer except for the mass beats to clasp the audience to be in awe of Allu Arjun's show. Sagar and Geeta Madhuri's aces the song's of this genre by now and the tune is the cakewalk for them while Bhaskara Bhatla's lyrics set the right mood for the song. However, the track comparatively catchy compared to other tracks.

Verdict: DSP comes back to his routine with DJ after an impressive Nenu local and the result is underwhelming except for the ultra-catchy Asmaika.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Asmaika, Box Baddhalai Poyi.

Music Review (Tamil): Sema

Music Review (Tamil): Sema
Music Composer: GV Prakash Kumar

Sandalee's tune has the trademark GV Prakash style and the composer relegated the vocal department to Velmurugan and Mahalingam instead of the GV Prakash itself who usually croons these type of songs. Though the tune is pretty standard one, the folk arrangements dominated by Kiran and Nathan's flute work shines till the end.Uruttu Kannalla easily breezes through with the catchy title hook, however, the transition from the folk filled arrangements to the Monisha's second interlude appears to be the misfit in the overall tone of the song. Egadesi's lyrics sounds apt but at some places comes off as brackish stuff from the lyricist. Santosh Hariharan ably holds the song till it lasts.

GV Prakash scores easily in Nenje Nenje backed by the ear-pleasing tune and the lead singers Sidharth Mahadevan and the splendid Shashaa Tripathi easily makes this one enjoyable. Seenu's classical guitar and Kalyan's violin accompanied by Chennai's symphony's string sections make this one worthy listen in the soundtrack.Vechu Senjaachu is exclusive to satiate the particular section of the audience with high octane synthesised beats delivered with aplomb by Raja Ganapathy and Adhik Ravichandran. Though the catchy prelude prods the song, the monotonous sounding tune didn't help the song much despite the energetic background and singer's verve.Sema's theme is purely Thirumoorthy's Nadaswaram show with occasional annoying scatting by Adhik Ravichandran and the folk rich theme song sounds apt and an engaging one.

Verdict: GV Prakash's Sema is filled with folk rich sounds, however, the tunes are hardly memorable one despite occasional sparks in terms of arrangements.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Nenje Nenje, Sandalee

Music Review(Tamil): Kurangu Bommai

Music Review(Tamil): Kurangu Bommai
Music Composer: Ajaneesh Loknath

Paathum Paakama's waltzy tune and cheerful accordion dominated arrangements mixed with assorted string sections easily work to its favour while Shankar Mahadevan's impeccable singing adds charm to the song. There is a fine guitar rhythm in the background which blends smoothly with the string sections in the foreground while Francis's lyrics are adequate. Annamaare Ayyamaare takes its cue from the composer's recent smashing Belegaadu in Kirik Party, though the song sounds mediocre, the tune in the Charanam portions is intriguing enough to clasp the listeners. VM Mahalingam aces the tune with right swag and adequate support from Premji Amaran.

Beachu Kaathu's tune is a fiasco despite an engaging and high octane brass led arrangements in the background while Anthony Daasan sounds as usual and unable to prop up the average song in the soundtrack.CR Bobby is one of my personal favourite singer who often sings for Ajaneesh Loknath and she croons a short effective Unna Naan Rasika and the only grouse being that song is less than two-minute duration. Kalaangadhe Kanne is another short track delivered by the composer itself and it's too short to create any impact on the listeners.

Verdict: Though nothing extraordinary debut by the famous Sandalwood composer, the tracks are adequately engaging and refreshing. Eagerly waiting for his Ulidavaru Kandante's Tamil Remake Richie.

Music Review (Tamil): Rangoon

Music Review (Tamil): Rangoon
Music Composer: RH Vikram and Vishal Chandrasekhar


Yaatreega's world music elements accompanied by the haunting melody crooned with finesse by Navin Iyer while the uncredited female vocal pieces are scintillating gelgels well with the tone of the son. Amalraj's brilliant usage of Oud, Saz and Burmese Harp being the undeniable highlight which makes this one delectable music experience while late Na Muthukumar shines with his lyrics. Maria Kavitha Thomas's fangled rendition of typical pop styled tune of Enai Maraikirene aside, the real awesomeness is in the arrangements led by Martin Visser's Baritone Sax and Shyam Benjamin's serene prelude piano keys accentuate the groove of the song very well.

Foreign Return is another mass kuthu number crooned by Anirudh Ravichander and he sails through the song effortlessly. Despite the staid Kuthu portions, the remaining elements incorporated by RH Vikram are alluring from the brilliant usage of Manoj Kumar's Kazoo in the prelude to traditional vocals by Anthony Dasan and Ritu. One wishes that Kuthu portions could have been done better. Vishal Chandrasekhar's displayed his prowess in full throttle with Nee Illa Aagayam where Yazin Nizar steals the show with his dynamic vocal range and the way singer ends the song is the splendid one. Kraven's sharp acoustic blues guitar strums add another haunting tone to the song and the interludes make this one compelling listen.It's a delight to listen to Yazin Nizar's high-pitched portions and the humming towards the end is top notch from the singer Vishal Chandrasekhar strikes a chord with the alternative rock number Ey Jajabor in Assamese language written and crooned by Kraven Stratfile and the song is adequately infectious with the Kraven's guitar work stands out.Thottil Madiyil rides mainly on the mellifluous vocals of Chinmayi and the minimal arrangement song by RH Vikram works despite being less than 2 minutes.

Verdict: Rangoon's highly experimental tracks by debutant RH Vikram and Vishal Chandrasekhar is sure to stay in the playlist of music lovers who love to listen to the sounds hugely deviant of normal Tamil albums.

My Rating: 8/10

Music Review (Telugu): Rarandoi Vedukka Chuddam

Music Review (Telugu): Rarandoi Vedukka Chuddam
Music Composer: Devisri Prasad

The title song starts up with the celebratory Balesh's Shenai and the tune is adequately ear friendly with the pleasant arrangements while Ranjith and Gopika ably support the tune till it lasts. Ramajoggaya Sastry's nails the lyrics and the verses gels well with the DSP's amiable tune.Nee Vente Nenunte is the typical DSP tune and the tried and tested rhythm didn't add much value to the song. However, the staid tune is improvised by engaging arrangements highlighted by Nathan's Sax and flute sections accompanied by DSP's acoustic guitar. Srimani's lyrics sounds apt for the composer's languishing tune. Shwetha Mohan's vocals give much impetus to an otherwise average tune.

Brahmaramba also suffers from the DSP's stock tune and the tune gets tiresome in the prelude itself despite Sagar's high-octane singing while the lyrics also fails to make this one an engaging one. The only solace in an otherwise tepid song is Balaji's solo violin.Break up is an another mediocre song where an impressive credit list of musicians is wasted in the lifeless tune which is backed only by the mass template of the song. Bhaskara Bhatla's colloquial lyrics is also unable to salvage this Simha and Dhanunjay's show.The song of the soundtrack comes in the form of Thakita Thakajam and the song is adequately pleasant with an engaging Tabla base accompanied by stupendous affecting usage of violin and Keba Jeremiah's impressive guitar work. Javed Ali gives life to the engaging tune and it's a great respite to listen to this song after the string of mediocre songs in the soundtrack. However, the rock versions fares lower when compared to the original version despite the brilliant effort from Keba Jeremiah.

Verdict: DSP sticks to his comfort zone in Rarandoi Vedukka Chuddam and couple of songs works in an otherwise largely an average soundtrack from the composer.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Thakita Thakajam, Title Song.

Music Review (Telugu): Keshava

Music Review (Telugu): Keshava
Music Composer: Sunny MR

Telusa Neeku Bahusa rides mainly on the husky sensual vocals of Shalmali Kholgade complimenting the Krishna Chaitanya's lyrics. However, as a composer sunny MR aces in delivering groovy synth dominated arrangements and the title hook is adequately catchy enough especially in lead singer's vocals. Yedisthe Rareveru is Sunny MR's territory and his regular Arijit Singh behind the mic delivers the fine job while the background is dominated by Roland's Electric guitar and wonderful bass line by the composer itself. Though not an exquisite track, the song clasps the listener till it ends.

Po Poradi is another high-octane song filled with modular synths and haunting bass line by Sunny MR and tune is less captivating one. The song may gel well with the visuals but not as a standalone track. Arijit Singh is adequate in crooning this grungy track. Sunny MR adds punch to the energetic traditional Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam with Roland Fernandes Electric guitar while the string of singers led by Harshika Gudi did a fine job behind the mic and kept the mood afloat till the end of this 3-minute song. However Kaala Bhairava's recreated version works as a whole package with interesting arrangments. The soundscape created with absolutely enthralling 60's jazz accompanied by James Bond'ish sounds adds much charm to the traditional melody.

Verdict: Sunny MR continues to churn out his unique sounds for Telugu and still his Swamy Ra Ra with Sudheer Varma is the best from the composer.

My Rating: 3/5

Music Review (Tamil): Brindavanam

Music Review (Tamil): Brindavanam
Music Composer: Vishal Chandrasekar

Shoobi Doobi Dooba sticks to the tried and tested Jazzy tune while Sharanya Gopinath handles the tune with aplomb attitude except for the mangled pronunciation of Pazhagi. Karky's lyrics provoke enough enthusiasm to keep the song afloat while the kickass show stealer of the song is undeniable Kraven's Electric guitar work.Yaar's Ilayaraja'esque tune evokes delightful memories and S P Balasubramaniyam's vocals infuse life to the tune while Vishal Chandrasekhar brilliantly employed the Chandrajith's Tabla and Punya's Veena layer over the pleasant tune. Raghvasimhan's strings come off as parallel vocals in the background. Overall enjoyable laid back relaxing tune from Vishal.

Giji Giji Saare's Goan'esque sound is the only song which is easily relatable to Vidyasagar while Vishal adorned the tune with the brilliant arrangements dominated by Krishna Kishor's live percussions. However brief Carnatic tinged cues in the interludes being the undeniable highlight of the track. Nikhil Mathew and composer's better half Sinduri Vishal handles the lively tune very well.

Verdict: Vishal delivered confidently the never before heard sounds in Radha Mohan films for Brindavanam, However missing the timeless melodies by Vidyasagar for Radha Mohan movies.

My Rating: 7.75/10

Music Review (Tamil): Server Sundaram

Music  Review (Tamil): Server Sundaram
Music Composer: Santosh Narayanan

Bro's ear friendly techno sounds in the background backed by Tapas Naresh's drums being the amiable element in the soundtrack whereas the tune by Santosh Narayanan is as passable as his vocals. Lyrics by Viveka is adequately listenable enough and flows with the tune serving the purpose aptly nevertheless nothing extraordinary element in the song.Nirkaadhey's prelude has the shades of Santosh Narayanan's close associate Pradeep Kumar's indie album Poorva whereas what follows is an interesting attempt at the fusion of classical elements and trademark Santosh Narayanan sounds. The undeniable highlight being the Anantha Narayanan's classical violin in the second interlude and Naveen's bass line. Ananthu, Vijay Narain and Santosh Narayanan aces the Vivek's optimistic lyrics and makes this song enjoyable one till it lasts.

Though as a standalone tune Kannal Modhadhey appears as plain one, Sid Sriram's improvisations along with the blues touch in the tune make the listeners to totally buy the song. Babu steals the show from Sid Sriram in the interludes with his splendid trumpet while Naveen's synth bass blends beautifully throughout the song.Gama Gama Samayal is highly rooted to the nativity both in terms of lyrics and 4 Idiots percussion, however, the tune is hardly an interesting one. Anthony Daasan's monotonous vocals and Santosh Narayanan's vocals didn't help the song much either which makes this one least interesting song in the album.The song of the soundtrack is indubitably Unavey Marundhu and the classical fusion attempt with the renowned carnatic vocalists Ranjani Gayatri works like charm. The arrangements are top notch and the haunting nylon guitar strums by Keba Jeremiah along with the Ganapthy's Mridangam makes this one blissful experience while Vivek's lyrics deserves the special mention amidst the sonic brilliance in the arrangements front.

Verdict: Santosh Narayanan opens his 2017 account with the unexpected brilliant two fusion songs in Server Sundaram.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Unavey Marundhu, Nirkaadhey, Kannal Modhadhey
