Music Review (Malayalam): Maheshinte Prathikaram

Music Review (Malayalam): Maheshinte Prathikaram
Music Composer: Bijibal

Idukki, lovely melody and seems to be the tribute for the eponymous place while Bijibal did a fabulous job in crooning along with wonderful ear pleasing backing vocals. Bijibal aces as a composer too with minimal soothing orchestration and pleasant string sections. Theliveyil starts with kid chorus and what follows is another wonderful waltz'y melody handled by Sudeep Kumar and Sangeetha Srikanth effectually. Bijibal impresses with alluring violin and string sections throughout the song. Vijay Yesudas and Aparna Balamurali got a winner in the album with Mounangal while the tune is again on rhythmic waltzy base but Bijibal churned out a surprise with the brilliant set of instruments with sitar, violins and clarinet. Cherupinjiri also a melody one but compared to other songs in the album this one is least impressive whereas Nikhil Mathew did a fine job behind the mic.

Verdict: Bijibal's success streak continues with 2016, an enjoyable short soundtrack from the proficient composer.

My rating:7.5/10
Pick of the Album: Mounangal, Idukki, Theliveyil

You can listen to the songs in Youtube.
