Music Review (Tamil): Sathya

Music Review (Tamil): Sathya
Music Composer: Simon K King

Kadhal Project's main drawback is the tune treading on the familiar territory as well as quite an uninspiring tune despite being an energetic one and sung sprightly by Benny Dayal. However, composer made the other elements in the song interesting with Keerthana Vaidyanath's classical tinges and splendid drums and solo violin by Vasanth David and Akshay Ganesh respectively. Yavvana is the brilliant stuff from te composer, semi-classical melody builds upon the rock base with brilliant Kalyani Nair showcasing her prowess while surprisingly Yazin Nizar sounds off track in the pallavi portions. Composer's stupendous arrangements with Vasanth David's drums and Vikram's Tabla make this one song of the soundtrack.

Sangu is the generic high octane rock track and the tune hardly turns into an interesting zone while the inclusion of Kuthu in the grungy rock track doesn't help the song much either. Godfrey Immanuel's guitar work being the solo highlight in this track. The song's area version has the same arrangements with Karky's lyrics replaced by Rokesh but that doesn't make the track better one. Yavvana's reprise version gains a lot from the beautiful semi classical melody and the minimal arrangements add charm to its allure. The melancholic version of the same tune works exceptionally mainy for the Keerthana Vaidyanathan's earnest vocals and decent support by Yazin Nizar. Srivatsa's woodwinds set the mood of the song perfectly in the interludes Simon King ends the soundtrack with the brilliant In search of Satya theme and the santoor touches are the absolute highlight apart from the curious mood set by the string sections. Overall fitting theme track for the crime thriller.

Verdict: Simon K  King's third album is the most promising work from the composer with ample support from the lead singers.

My Rating:7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Yavvana, In search for Sathya, Kadhal Project
