Music Review (Tamil): Rekka

Music Review (Tamil): Rekka
Music Composer: Imman

       The song which has been already released as a single and the track has very minimal appealing factor. The title hook is annoying even though it lasts for brief duration.Imman's arrangements are the hodgepodge of composer's trademark sounds. Jithin Raj alone unable to salvage this underwhelming track.Kanna kaattu podhum is a minimum guarantee track which is adequately pleasant in the mesmerising vocals of Shreya Goshal. However the warmed up soundscape for Imman- Shreya Goshal combination is of little concern. The arrangements are strictly confined to the Imman's forte with generous usage of strings and the lovely Verna in the second interlude.

        It's delight to listen Nandini Srikar vocals in Tamil after Nerungi Vaa Muthamidadhe and Yuvan's Moondru per Moondru kadhal. She aces in kannamma also with excellent improvisations throughout the track. Imman complements the tune and vocals with neat arrangements employing fabulous Nadhaswaram, keys and slide guitar in the first interlude. Pollapaiya gains a lot from the singing prowess of Shwetha Mohan and Haricharan while the background arrangements and rhythm are tried and tested umpteen times by the composer itself. The English lyrics and rock guitar mix in the first interlude is incongruous with the overall flow of the tune. The furious wings theme is adequately thumping and grungy enough, however the theme song stays in the strictly functional level without any awestruck moments in the two and half minute instrumental duration.

Verdict: Rekka is an another typical Imman album filled with stock tunes of the composer and the tracks benefit from the superlative vocals throughout the album.

My rating : 7/10

Pick of the Album: Kannamma,  Kanna Kaatu Podhum, Pollapaiya
