Music Review: Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thora

Music Review: Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thora
Music Composer: Vishal Chandrasekar

Ek Gau Mein aims solely to get the upper hand with familiar dialogues trope and STR name in the credit list, However, the song barely works despite the tune is tailor-made for STR's vocals. The techno sounds also fail to hold the listeners while M M Manasi ably supports the tune and the second interlude being the only listenable element in this passable opening number of the album.Vishal Chandrasekhar ropes in Gangai Amaran to croon the interesting number Kattaduraiku and the interludes, as well as other assorted sounds, are quirky enough which holds the listener's attention till the end. The casual lyrics fits the bill perfectly for the mood of the song and the lovely use of Kazoos and other synthesized sounds deserve special mention.

Hai En Kai Mela is a passable melody with the tinge of rock transition towards the end after the monotonous tiring rhythm and the melody is backed by the talented Shakthishree while Anirudh Ravichander tries hard to score in comparison. The only respite being the lovely violin cues infused intermittently.Govinda Govinda starts off like Harris Jayaraj styled kuthu song but turned out to be very tired and tedious tune combined with the pedestrian lyrics makes this one easily weakest track in the album. GV Prakash's vocals being the only silver lining in this passable kuthu song. The title song is a relatively interesting song in the album and that is strictly in comparison with the other songs in the album. Arunraja Kamaraj sounds similar to Kabali's Neruppu da and Premji reciting the iconic dialogue reiterates the hangover of Kabali.

Verdict: Vishal Chandrasekhar's Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thora has hardly any engrossing tracks and the songs lack the punch.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Kattaduraiku, Hai En Kai Mela
