Weekly Earworm – Week 27 | Ramesh S Kannan
Anirudh's Kutti story and GV Prakash's phenomenal Veyyon Silli are definitely bound to steal the music charts this week.
Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (Tamil): Masala Coffee: Ennai Vittu: After the brilliant Solo and Uriyadi, Masala Coffee composes music for the Tamil movie Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal. The track is definitely peppy and lively one but also a conventional one with nothing much to offer with respect to the tune and far from the band's stupendous repertoire. Ranjith Govind holds the song with his ebullient singing.
Jananya (Malayalam): Pratik Abhyankar: A wonderful music video by Anand Anilkumar which depicts about the Postpartum depression. Pratik Abhyankar's serene guitar-laden (Guitars by Sujith ValiyaVeetil) melody is soothing and Gouri Sreekumar is exceptional with her vocals. Composer employed Sai Cherthala's flute brilliantly in the interlude with the tinge of an ominous soundscape.
Kutti Story (Tamil): Anirudh Ravichander: Kutti Story: Anirudh tries to recreate the magic of Kolaveri with the Kutti Story and this also features Tanglish lyrics by Arunraja Kamaraj. The tune is undeniably catchy and fun one with Vijay behind the mic, the song is sure to become a chartbuster. The Animation by Realworks studios is another silver lining in a catchy song.
Aasai Thadumbucha (Tamil): Justin Prabhakaran: Justin Prabhakaran dropped in Valentine's day special song Aasai Thadumbucha. The free-flowing unhurried tune is backed by a wonderful string Quartet sections conducted by Imam and the 'Thikku Thikku' hook with the violin companion piece is the highlight of this lovely song. Teejay Arunasalam aces the vocals portions effectually.
Teddy (Tamil): Imman: En Iniya Thanimaye: Despite the tune sounds perfunctory, Madhan Karky's beautiful lyrics on loneliness makes this one an engaging one. The tune also gets progressively better with the tinge of rock flavours towards the end while Sid Sriram holds well the song with his effortless singing.
Soorarai Pottru (Tamil): GV Prakash Kumar: Veyyon Silli: GV Prakash is definitely on a roll as a composer and after Asuran, GV delivers yet another fine song with the rural rhyming lyrics by Vivek. GV hands over the song to Agam's fame Harish Sivaramakrishnan and the singer aces the high pitched energetic singing brilliantly. The track is highly listenable for its Madurai dialect lyrics and the singer's pitch-perfect rendition which gels well with the thumping percussion rhythm.
Pick of the album: Veyyon Silli, Kutti Story, Aasai Thadumbucha
