Music Review (Tamil): Sema

Music Review (Tamil): Sema
Music Composer: GV Prakash Kumar

Sandalee's tune has the trademark GV Prakash style and the composer relegated the vocal department to Velmurugan and Mahalingam instead of the GV Prakash itself who usually croons these type of songs. Though the tune is pretty standard one, the folk arrangements dominated by Kiran and Nathan's flute work shines till the end.Uruttu Kannalla easily breezes through with the catchy title hook, however, the transition from the folk filled arrangements to the Monisha's second interlude appears to be the misfit in the overall tone of the song. Egadesi's lyrics sounds apt but at some places comes off as brackish stuff from the lyricist. Santosh Hariharan ably holds the song till it lasts.

GV Prakash scores easily in Nenje Nenje backed by the ear-pleasing tune and the lead singers Sidharth Mahadevan and the splendid Shashaa Tripathi easily makes this one enjoyable. Seenu's classical guitar and Kalyan's violin accompanied by Chennai's symphony's string sections make this one worthy listen in the soundtrack.Vechu Senjaachu is exclusive to satiate the particular section of the audience with high octane synthesised beats delivered with aplomb by Raja Ganapathy and Adhik Ravichandran. Though the catchy prelude prods the song, the monotonous sounding tune didn't help the song much despite the energetic background and singer's verve.Sema's theme is purely Thirumoorthy's Nadaswaram show with occasional annoying scatting by Adhik Ravichandran and the folk rich theme song sounds apt and an engaging one.

Verdict: GV Prakash's Sema is filled with folk rich sounds, however, the tunes are hardly memorable one despite occasional sparks in terms of arrangements.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Nenje Nenje, Sandalee
