Music Review (Tamil): Rubaai

Music Review (Tamil): Rubaai
Music Composer: Imman

Asathuthe is adequately enjoyable thanks to the lovely nostalgic guitar strums and Imman aces the tune backed by stupendous guitar strums throughout the track. Imman spruces up the tune with quite an enticing interludes and it reaches crescendo especially in the fabulous usage of accordion and latino styled guitars in the second half. Unkooda Pesathaane starts off with gospel-styled chorus and the tune shift towards the expected melody territory in the ever-reliable vocals of Shreya Goshal. Though the tune fares notch below the latest Shreya Goshal- Imman combo tracks, the melody and the vocals are adequately engaging till the song lasts.

Paathukuren's 90 style melody didn't hit the mark and the languishing tune is made listenable by Sathyaprakash's engaging vocals. The rhythms and interludes by Imman also sound staid without any spark. However the brief flute portion in the second interlude is pleasant to hear and makes this song works partially. Dukkum Dukkum is an another mediocre song in the soundtrack and the soundscape is on the lines of Soi Soi from Kumki and Pom Pom from Desingu Raja. Anitha Venkat's rustic vocals sounds apt, however it's difficult to brush aside the sound cues from the composer's earlier works.

Verdict: Imman's latest album Rubaai falls short of the engaging set of tunes in contrast to his previous couple of releases and the album works partially for few nifty touches.

My Rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Asathuthe, Unkooda Pesathaane
