Kidaari Songs Music Review
Ramesh S Kannan
Kidaari is an upcoming action film directed by PrasathMurugesan with Sasikumar as a lead. Darbuka Siva of Rajathandiram fame debuts as a music director for this movie. Let's check out how well songs fared well for this rural flick.
Vandiyille Nellu Varum
Vandiyille Nellu Varum's best part is consistent foot tapping Keba Jeremiah's guitar sections and Naveen Napier's fabulous bass line. Anthony Dassan shines with his vocals true to his signature, however, Sanjana Kalmanje's outsmart with her brief easily appealing vocals. Darbuka Siva spruces the second half with quite decent Selvaraj's Nadhaswaram.
Vettaruva Veecharuva ✔
The album shifts into the broody mood with Vettaruva Veecharuva and the composer brilliantly set the ambience with haunting string sections and Navin Chandar's flute and woodwind orchestration accentuate the tone of the song in a splendid manner. Vel murugan fits the bill perfectly crooning the Ekadesi's gloomy lyrics.
Thalakaalu Puriyala ✔
Thalakaalu Puriyala is the brilliant fusion work which starts off with the soulful rendition by Anitha and the song turns out into quite an upbeat rock and roll fashion filled with rustic Mohan rajan lyrics. Darbuka Siva segued wonderfully Bala's Nadhaswaram and Pichaikani'sthavil amidst the enjoyable Babu's brass work. Vel murugan lends the fantastic support to Anitha's energetic vocals.
Nenjukulle Ninnukittu is a short pleasant listen lifted by the lilting orchestration dominated by Navin Chander's flute and rhythmic darbuka by the composer itself. Sanjana Kalmanje handled the tune well with her pleasant vocals.
Pagaivanukku Arulvaai ✔
Darbuka Siva recreates the familiar MahakaviSubramanyaBharathi'sPagaivanukkuArulvaai with Haricharan's effortless vocals. In contrast to the lyrics which speaks about love, the composer's rich arrangements features haunting string arrangements by B Prasanna and wonderful classical sarod solos by Debasmita Bhattacharya. Overall, debut composer delivers a stunning song, the song is worth a listen for its captivating orchestration itself.
Kaathu Veesuthu Kaathu
KaathuVeesuthuKaathu is an effective short piece with symphonic string sections and Bala'sNadhaswaram giving the slight nod to ThalakaaluPuriyala.
Darbuka Siva ended the brilliant soundtrack with another haunting instrumental piece Velivarumulagam where gloomy soundscape created by thrilling string sections gives the goosebumps for the listeners.
Verdict: Kidaari is a competent noteworthy debut from Darbuka Siva where composer's stellar fusion in the arrangements for the rustic lyrics stands apart.
