Music Review (Tamil): Remo

Music Review (Tamil): Remo
Music Composer: Anirudh

Remo Nee Kadhalan rides on the repetitive title hook and "Iva Ava than" loop recurrently while Nadhaswaram and trumpet cues got subdued behind the vocals and Vignesh Vasudevan's lyrics are pedestrian at best. Overall average track from Anirudh and would have been fared better with neat vocal and orchestration arrangements.Senjitaley has an easily accessible tune and Anirudh did a neat job as a composer rather than as a singer. The mild tabla rhythm beat occasionally coupled with the casual singing of the catchy Vignesh Vasudevan's lyrics prods the song to the further level.Anirudh roped in Bollywood singer Arjun Kanungo to croon Sirikkathey, the pleasant melody with minimal catchy orchestration dominated by uber cool guitar strums and synth sounds. Anirudh and Srinidhi Venkatesh gives fabulous support in the vocal front. Vignesh Vasudevan's lyrics is apt for the romantic melody which is sure to stay on the charts for a long time. The reprise version of the song by Inno Genga is also enticing one mainly due to Anirudh's alluring orchestration with guitars and Inno Genga's involved rendition.

Meesa Beauty is another mediocre track where both Richard's vocals and lyrics are pedestrian one and the tune sounds recklessly composed with few arrangements especially the second interlude and pop sound hooks the listener till the song lasts. The middle kuthu digression sounds incongruous to the flow of the song.Daavuya has its quirky gaana base tune while Santosh Narayanan sounds like contemporary Deva and he croons the song with absolute finesse and swag. Anirudh props up the tune with the melange of synth sounds and the kuthu is enjoyable as well as easy to the ears. Vaadi en TamilSelvi is another passable track where Anirudh's synthesized EDM sounds alone unable to salvage the song from the NakashAziz's Tamil diction and the mediocre tune. The song turns enticing route in the charanam portions, however as a whole this one is the underwhelming song in the album partly due to functional lyrics.Remo theme is the rework of Remo Nee Kadhalan and the one-minute version of the song fails to create much impact due to uninteresting tune,

Verdict: Anirudh delivers another fun filled album which is sure to satiate the fans and though devoid of standout experimental tracks, the feel of the album is vibrant enough to elevate the overall mood of the movie.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Sirikkathey, Senjitaaley, Daavuya
