Music Review (Tamil) : Darling

Music Review (Tamil) : Darling
Music Composer: GV Prakash Kumar

        Anbe Anbe, soporific melodious tune reminiscent of composer's own compositions interspersed with occasional brilliant guitar strums and drums. GV Prakash rendition stands apart in an otherwise mundane track. Sattena Idi mazhai, another passable party track with electronic sounds in GV Prakash and Megha's vocals ends bland despite lively rendition by lead singer.

        Soundtrack turns into interesting with Vandha mala, amusing lyrics, instantly catchy tune, energetic vocals by Arun Raja Kamaraj and Gaana Bala. The brass sections, drums and guitar portions aided with dialogues makes this song enticing. Next come another gorgeous melody Unnale with impressive violins and acoustic drums in interludes backed by chorus. Shankar Mahadevan and Shreya Goshal in the vocals, hardly anything can go wrong in singing and they nail the haunting tune in their own way. Good to see that Shankar Mahadevan returns to tamil soundtrack this year in many albums. Another proficient singer Harini rules the next melodious track in the album Un Vizhigalil with her mellifluous voice. GV goes minimal in the orchestration with pleasant piano sounds and flute in the interludes to support Harini's soft rendition.The dead are back is gloomy theme track mixed with sounds associated with horror films backed by chorus and strings section.

Verdict: GV Prakash Kumar returns back with engaging melodious album after average Irumbu Kuthirai.

My rating:7/10

Pick of the Album: Unnale, Un Vizhigalil, Vandha mala
