Goli Soda 2 Music Review
Vijay Milton comes back with the sequel of the critically acclaimed movie Goli Soda with Samuthirakani, Chemban and Vinod Jose in lead roles. Achu Rajamani composes music for the film. Let's check out whether Achu has been able to deliver memorable soundtrack with this promising sequel or not.
Pondattee seems to be the kind of music Leon James would churn and the peppy breezy tune has been sung by the composer Achu himself. This guitar-laden track is listenable and the arrangements are adorned by Ranjith's Sitar in the first interlude. Though Mani Amuthavan's lyrics sound force fitted, Achu's singing and buoyant tune make this one listenable.
Kelambu is the hackneyed anthemic rousing grungy track with a hardly memorable tune and apart from Steve's effectual guitar score, the track has little to offer. Deepak, Mahalingam, Jitin Raj and Sreeraj deliver fine within the limited scope of the tune. The track relies largely on the punchy percussions and few nifty guitar solos.
Yaaro Vandhu is another track sung by the composer himself and this short melancholy track fails to stick to the listeners. This track is mostly a situational one and gains a lot from the pensive lyrics.
Kannamma is on the lines of Pondatee where the breezy tone of the song and the stylish rendition by the string of singers lead by Praveen and Nishitha Menon. The interludes with the iPad synth are extremely catchy which flows in tandem with the overall tone of the song.
Achu ends the soundtrack with the racy theme track led by the effectual Gautham Vasudev Menon's voice over. The theme track is loaded with techno synthesised sounds which gives the haunting soundscape for the thriller.
Verdict: Golisoda 2 is definitely a better soundtrack than the prequel but the album lacks instant catchy songs, despite occasional brilliance in the arrangements.
Pick of the Album: Kannamma, Pondattee
