Sanga Thamizhan Music Review
Sangathamizhan is an upcoming action movie directed by Vijay Chander of Sketch fame with Vijay Sethupathi, Nivetha Pethuraj and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles. Vivek Mervin scores music for the film and the duo's music always has interesting elements to it and though the composers' albums are not instant chart-busters but it serves the purpose effectually.
Oh My God:
Oh My God is a passable listen with its mindless lyrics by Viveka while the tune hardly entices any interest in the listener. Nakash Aziz's sprightly rendition keeps the uninspiring tune afloat and makes it listenable till it ends.
Composer duo fare really well in Azhagu Azhagu and make up for the initial blip with the engaging melody. The uncredited male singer in prelude sounds more like one of the composers and Shwetha Mohan takes care of the melody with her pitch-perfect rendition. The duo does fairly better in the arrangements also especially with the wonderful usage of Thirumurthy's nathaswaram.
Kamala is Goan rhythm meets the raucous foot-tapping kuthu which one feels that it could have been done better nevertheless fun listen. Vivek Siva himself croons the song with the talented Sanjana Kalmanje who one wishes that sings often. The colloquial lyrics by Ku Karthik able to clasp the listener's attention. The tune vaguely takes us back to the famous song Mia Mia from Aai especially the sound sample comes after current kambi verse.
Innum Vera starts off with the promising not but soon turns out to be languorous listen while Diwakar manages to prop up the song but turns out to be the futile attempt. Viveka's lyrics romanticizes the village life while Manonmani's sarangi being the solace in an otherwise lackluster song.
Sandakkaari sounds more like Anirudh's composition than Vivek Mervin. This may be partially due to Anirudh's singing and the tune is easily sing-along one with Nathan's flute is a standout one which plays along throughout the song. Jonita Gandhi ably supports Anirudh with her rendition.
Composer ends the soundtrack with an inspirational anthemic number and the arrangements strictly confined to the genre with the grand strings sections while Pupil kids choir is added to prop up the proceedings. Composer duo ropes in Shankar Mahadevan and the man delivers as usual with aplomb despite the pedestrian tune.
Verdict: SangaTamizhan is another minimum guarantee soundtrack from Vivek Mervin and though the soundtrack has nothing extraordinary to offer, it has its occasional sparks.
Pick of the Album: Sandakkaari, Azhagu Azhagu, Kamala
