Music Review (Malayalam): Kammatipaadam

Music Review (Malayalam): Kammatipaadam
Music Composer: John P Varkey, K, Vinayakan

John P Varkey's Para Para has sonorous ambient soundscape with gloomy vibe attached to it and incredible way the song transcends from lethargic folk tune to soaring second half is absolutely stunning. Composer incorporated some timely idakka sounds in a brilliant way. The song's vocal credits should mainly go for the lovely chorus portions bolstering Anoop Mohandas. In Chingamaasathile, Varkey builds the beautiful languorous folk tune with minimal guitar riffs laden track played by the composer itself and rendered effectually by once again Anoop Mohandas. K returns to Rajeev Ravi's movie after winsome Malayalam debut in Annayum Rasoolum. Kaathirunna Pakshi Njan is another sweet-sounding melody rides mainly on the ever-reliable Karthik who aces both singing as well as with whistles while K kept the arrangements simple with another composer Varkey takes the lead with uber cool guitar strums. Puzhu Pulikal's tune sounds more like conversation between a man and boy but Vinayakan's brilliant arrangements with tinge of somber vibe mainly due to Janardhan's udukku built over the simple tune  and the highlight of this track is undeniably Francis Xavier's blissful violin in the interludes.

Verdict: Rajeev Ravi's association with multi-composer for Kammatipaadam turns out to be appealing one akin to his debut movie soundtrack.

My rating:8/10

Pick of the Album: All songs, nevertheless only four.
