Cast: Keerthi Suresh, Sivakarthikeyan, Soori
Music: D Imman
The successful VVS trio – Sivakarthikeyan, Imman and Ponram, is back with yet another rural based love album, Rajini Murugan which stars Sivakarthikeyan and Keerthi Suresh in the lead roles. The movie is produced by Lingusamy’s Thirrupathi’ Brothers banner.
The precision of the snare rolls creates an instant stir. A promising title track emphasized by the live elements of the marriage band music, chorus and more than catchy lyrics. Minute detailing like using the Veena, gunshot sounds and particularly ending the song with the ‘The Good The Bad The Ugly’ theme music pack the song better.
Un Mele Oru Kannu
Singers: Jithin Raj, Mahalakshmi Iyer
The prototypical melody from Imman treated on a chatusra jati, the humming, emotional rendition from the singer, clear-cut bass lines and the already heard rhythm loops. Multiple listening will gain listenership because of the enterprising interludes. This song is bound to become the next pick for light music troupes.
Aavi Parakkum Teakadai
Singers: Badava Gopi, V.M.Mahalingam
The light-folk genre fully exposed, this accessible song has a surprising violin interlude and EDM patches rightly used. Lyrics being a huge relief, another favourite for casual listeners is ready.
Yennama Ipadi Panreengalaema
Singers: D Imman
Capitalizing on the famous catchphrase thanks to the context associated to the song, Imman’s flawless singing of the creative lyrics gives a winner. The essence of guitars for a proper folk track is a trial effort while the improvisations during the programming of the song are evident with noticeable addition of elements.
Singers: Diwakar, Kalpana Raghavendar
Though the mandolin adds a tang; the celebratory song with a cliched situation demands no expertise. Kalpana’s voice gives the much-needed edge when the non-progressive folksy elements are a letdown. Solo from the percussions might bring out the dancer in you.
Yennama Ipadi Panreengalaema (Imman Mix)
Singers: Aaryan Dinesh Kanagaratnam, D Imman
With a compulsion to take a folk based song to the pubs, the remix version of the original is filled with EDM, Aaryan’s rap and numerous sound effects that hardly get noted.
Verdict: Another mainstream treat from the VVS trio!
