Kumki (Music review), Tamil – D.Imman
Yella oorum works at a functional level as a hero intro song. Onnum puriyala is spectacular; moves from serene to the more enthusiastic, percussion-led portion incredibly well; Imman’s vocals is brilliant as is the quality of orchestration. Haricharan’s Ayayayo is no different – one heck of a sweeping melody, again orchestrated brilliantly. Sollitaaley is comparatively tepid, but does have its own charm, while Magizhini Manimaaran’s rustic singing sees the joyous Soi soi through beyond the predictable package. Nee yeppo pulla drones on, but A Lady & The Violin works perfectly as Ayayayo’s alternate version. Imman is firmly consolidating his form!
