Music Review (Tamil): Parandhu Sella Vaa

Music Review (Tamil): Parandhu Sella Vaa
Music Composer: Joshua Sridhar

Kaatril Eri Midhakuthe is adequately foot tapping and head-banging synth sound dominated pedestrian track treads on the familiar sound while Joshua Sridhar's processed vocals didn't help either and Lady kash chips in with indiscernible rap portions. Joshua continues his passable track mode with Sillendru Thakuthe and the song comes off listenable due to the lead singer vocals. Thanks to Sathyaprakash, Ranina Reddy and Ramya NSK. Welcome boys Idhu is another banal song which builds on the familiar pop template where vocal also comes off as an edgy one without helping the song much either. The only solace being the lovely use of the banjo in the interlude.

Joshua Sridhar easily scores in the remaining three melodies. Mann Meedhu Inbam, lovely retro jazz track and even Rajesh Krishnan sounds more like SPB which accentuates the 90's feel in the song. Swetha Mohan aces in another lovely melody Nadhiyil Vizhundha Poovin and Joshua kept the rhythm hook simple while the jibberish in the interlude sounds odd in an otherwise enjoyable song in the soundtrack. Yaarumae Thaniya Illai has beautiful optimistic lyrics by Na Muthukumar while Haricharan and Joshua build the enjoyable ear-pleasing melody around that.

Verdict: Joshua Sridhar produces another enjoyable soundtrack with listenable melodies and I wish he composes frequently in Tamil.

My rating:7/10

Pick of the Album: Yaarume Thaniya Illai, Mann Meedhu Inbam, Nadhiyil Vizhundha Poovin
