Thadaiyara Thaakka (Music review), Tamil – Thaman S
Poondamalli, despite LR Eswari’s post-Kalasala presence, falls flat with a tune that hardly works and even the music is ho-hum. Kelamale is trademark Thaman – auto-tuned to perfection and a mighty pleasant, breezy tune! The unplugged version too is a wonderful listen, with Thaman replacing Aalaap Raju. Kaalangal, with Javed Ali and Chinmayi’s vocals is a gorgeous tune too, with a mildly melancholic feel, almost Rahmanish music, particularly in the interludes, and involving lyrics by Madhan. The theme music barely passes muster and seems perfunctory. Short, tuneful soundtrack by Thaman who gets the melodies right and the sole kuthu wrong.
