Urumi (Music review), Malayalam – Deepak Dev
The overall gaiety in Aaranne and its enthusiastic rhythm are instantly infectious! Aaro nee aaro has phenomenal vocals by Swetha and Yesudas for a sweeping melody, while Manjari’s Chimmi has really sweet, (Rahman’s) Uzhavan’ish orchestration! Reshmi’s Appaa is a serene, traditional solo with beautiful santoor backdrop, while her other song, Chalanam, gains completely from her majestic singing, besides scintillating music. Thelu thele is earthy and simplistic, but in Vadakku vadakku, featuring Prithviraj’s vocals, Deepak goes disproportionately modern and super zingy! In comparison, the other version sounds bland! Urumi’s soundtrack is a good listen, but it is also a strangely predictable package.
