Music Review (Tamil): Kaaki Sattai

Music Review (Tamil): Kaaki Sattai
Music Composer: Anirudh    

      I'm so cool, with Anirudh voice heard in similar tune umpteen number of times makes this song somewhat laborious listen. However Anirudh's techno elements infused with sudden drums, flute and konnakol are the surprising entry in this track. Akin to the previous song, title song also lacks punchy tune however Anirudh compensate with his rock based arrangement, Vishal Dadlani behind the mic to support Anirudh with his usual verve and occasional siren, walkie talkie sound mix. Next comes the winner of the album Kadhal kan Kattuthe, where both lead singers Shakthishree Gopalan and Anirudh with their effortless rendition and Anirudh progressive tune mixed with Accordion guitar adorned with flute and veena bits makes this an arresting listen. Kattikida is Anthony Dasan's show all the way with Anirudh techno elements mixing along with Thavil touches makes this song above routine folk fare. Shake that, another routine Anirudh number with hip hop sounds offer nothing new. Both instrumentals Kaaki Sattai theme extension of title song and trooper theme are short and ends without creating much impact.

Verdict: Barring one melody Kaaki Sattai is usual Anirudh Album and he confined to his forte for the remaining tracks. Better Anirudh should opt for other talented singers in the industry rather than singing himself for most of the songs.

My rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Kadhal Kan Kattudhe, Title Song, I'm so cool
