Music Review(Malayalam): Jacobinte Swargarajyam

Music Review(Malayalam): Jacobinte Swargarajyam
Music Composer: Shaan Rahman

Ee Shishirakaalam is typical Shaan Rahman melody and Shaan Rahman's close associate Vineeth Sreenivasan and Alka Ajith handles the gorgeous violin-laden tune quite effectually. Unni Menon and Sithara steals the show in the traditional song Thiruvaavaniraavu filled with authentic Kerala percussion elements, amidst synthesised beats. Especially loved the classical sargams by the lead singers throughout the song. In Dubai, Shaan builds the sing along simple tune on an impressive string base with Vineeth Sreenivasan lending fantastic support with his vocals. In Ennilerinju, Shaan mixes rap portions and Carnatic sargams beautifully and though Rzee's rap portions didn't impress much, the track is the wonderful listen mainly because of the Sithara's stupendous rendition and an enticing orchestration in the background. Home crooned by Ashwin is the typical rock song which is passable at its best.

Verdict: Jacobinte Swargarajyam is rich in melodies as expected from Shaan Rahman, however this one lags tad behind when compared to the Vineeth Srinivasan- Shaan's earlier works.

My rating:7.5/10
