Music Review(Tamil): Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga

Music Review(Tamil): Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga
Music Composer: Imman


      Imman starts off the title song with lovely retro rock and roll mood and especially guitar cum key combination along with drumming takes the listeners totally to 80's swing. Sooraj Santosh and Kailash Kher's complemented the retro styled song with their peppy vocals while Na Muthukumar makes his presence felt with his witty lyrics.Imman unveiled breezy melody Sona Sona with pretty much engaging and hummable tune along with interesting elements like cool guitar usage, mild percussions and highlight being Sax in the second interlude. Bollywood singer Armaan Malik makes the cool debut with this laid back song while Varun Parandhaman gives ample support with his backing vocals.

          Lucka Maattikkichi is a pedestrian tune and reminds Deva's yesteryear songs in not a postive note while Imman's beats in the background also too staid and drab. Dholak Gana Jagan, Senthildass and Palaniammal vocals being the only silver lining in this average tune and the vocals too unable to clasp the listeners for four minute duration. Adada Onnum Sollatha rides mainly on the vocals of Benny Dayal - Shakthishree Gopalan whereas tune and the structure is more like reduced tempo version of Mazhakaatha from Oru Oorla Rendu Raja. Imman's background percussion beats also gives heard before feeling and lead singers rendition mitigates the above glitches in the song.Naa Romba Busy is another song to appease the particular section of the audience and there is nothing to boast of in terms of tune and arrangements. The song is passable at its core and engaging mainly due to the quirky lyrics by Na Muthukumar and Snighdha Chandra. Particularly loved the inclusion of Goundamani dialogues in the middle. Santosh Hariharan, Neethi Mohan and Sharanya Gopinath props up the tune with their singing but felt their potential is under utilized.

Verdict: Imman starts off the soundtrack really well but the album fizzled out towards the end. However,VSOP is better than Imman's previous venture.

My rating: 6.5/10

Pick of the Album: Sona Sona, Adada Onnum Sollatha, Vasuvum Saravananum
