Music Review (Tamil): Neruppu da

Music Review (Tamil): Neruppu da
Music Composer: Sean Roldan

Rokesh's passable lyrics aside, Andha Madhiri Ponna  is a pleasant listen mainly because of the splendid arrangements of Martin's Percussions and Chennai string's string section while KJ Vijay teases us with the soothing flute solos in the interludes. Ravi G's casual singing sounds apt for the Rokesh's lyrics.Aalangiliye is a lovely throwback to Rahman's heydays and Sean Roldan created the splendid track while the composer himself and Swetha Mohan nail the beautiful tune with the pitch-perfect rendition. The pleasant folk arrangements especially flute and tabla base accompanied by intermittent violin solos are a delight to listen and Swetha Mohan able to croon some of her best songs with Sean Roldan.

In Karuppu Kallangolu, Sean Roldan continues his Power Paandi mode, However Balasubramaniam's Nadhaswaram is an amiable detour from the composer. Rokesh's lyrics sounds convincing in Anirudh Ravichander's vocals and the transition from the high octane kuthu to quite a melody in the middle being the only lovable element in this passable song. Enga Pona is an affecting melancholy while Sean chooses the arrangements in tandem with the tune to accentuate the mood of the song. Sean Roldan once again aces in the vocals side also with his unique voice.Raghavasimhan's strings are the major highlight in this arresting melancholy. Sean Roldan ends an impressive album with the splendid energetic theme delivered ably by Blaaze while Jai Gopi's buoyant trumpet steals the show amidst the hardcore Ramkumar's drums and Sean Roldan's screeching guitar strums.

Verdict: Sean Roldan continues to deliver engaging soundtrack with aplomb consistency and there seems to be no stopping for Sean Roldan. Another fine soundtrack within a month.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Aalangiliye, Andha Madhiri Ponna, Enga Pona
