Music Review (Malayalam): Anuraga Karikkin Vellam

Music Review (Malayalam): Anuraga Karikkin Vellam
Music Composer: Prashant Pillai

Manogathan Bhavan's enticing classical melody in the fore delivered with absolute finesse by both singers Mathangi and Haricharan while at the background Prashant Pillai employs pop sounding cues throughout the track. Apart from all this eargasmic ambience, Prashant topped up the song with fantastic Josy's Sax in the interludes. Vaikom Vijayalakshmi's idiosyncratic vocals in Neeyo Njano hooks up the listeners while Prashant incorporates the upbeat sounds in the background in sync with the song's tone. The lovely Prakash Hariharan's Mandolin base amidst the punchy percussion is the highlight of this track. Poyimaranjo's resonant tune evokes the memories of Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal title song, however composer upped the ante with brilliant string progressions. Govind Menon's wonderful violin solo is enough to enjoy the foot-tapping melody of the title song which Peethamabaran Menon and Govind menon renders earnestly.

Verdict: Prashant Pillai is one of the composers I always look out for and he never disappoints and Anuraga Karikkin Vellam is also top-notch work from this brilliant composer.

My rating: 8/10
