Music Review (Tamil): Indru Netru Naalai
Music Composer: HipHop Tamizha

In Iphone 6 Nee endral, Hip Hop Aadhi confined to his forte which sounds similar to his solo music songs and his debut Aambala album. However, synthesised Nathaswaram sound and sporadic Thavil mix stands out amidst the potpourri of sounds. Only grouse is heard- before-feel of the tune takes the fun out of the song. Indru Netru Naalai's highlight is classical orchestration with sarangi, veena in the backdrop of  grand string sections. Icing to the cake is Shankar Mahadevan's classical prowess in singing bolstered amply by Aalaap Raju's effectual vocals. Overall, winner of the album and it’s totally radical shift from composer's style. Aadhi tweaked the title track's melancholic tune in Kadhale Kadhale into spirited one and an additional bonus is Padmalatha's charming vocals with classical touches. Aadhi arranged the song mostly with synthesized sound and flute sounds in the interludes are blissful to hear.Hip Hop Aadhi returns to his domain of songs with Naane Than Raja and the highlight is entertaining percussions and other sounds. However, processing of Anthony Dassan's voice irks a lot and tune too didn't support enough the orchestration created by Hip Hop Aadhi. Theme song starts like a title track but reaches the crescendo with brilliant use of string sections and live drums.However, dubstep portion of the same title track tune appears forceful and discordant with the theme.

Verdict: Hip Hop Thamizha's sophomore soundtrack didn't offer much variety and rides mainly on the brilliant title track composition.

My Rating: 7.25/10

Pick of the Album: Indru Netru Naalai, Kadhale Kadhale
