Music Review (Tamil): Thiruttu Payale 2

Music Review (Tamil): Thiruttu Payale 2
Music Composer: Vidyasagar

Nee Paarkum works beautifully with the breezy guitar laden backgrounds and Sathyaprakash doing wonders with his vocals. Vidyasagar's laid back melody is adequately engaging and the tune in the Charanam portions are a delight to listen especially the tune set with the single words accompanied by the singer's improvisations.Thiruttu Payale's sequel has much better title track when compared to the retro track in its first part. Vidyasagar's employed brilliant lazy Jazz arrangements dominated by drums and sax in the arrangements and the only grouse is the pedestrian lyrics which doesn't gel with all the flamboyant backgrounds.

Achukku Buchukku is another poorly written song where Sanjana Kalmanje's vocals being the only highlight and the tune also stays in the average range. The song gets better toward the second half but cringe-worthy lyrics makes the listener to easily press the skip button. Vidyasagar comes to his forte in the final song of the soundtrack Neenda Naal and the track ticks off every element one can associate with the composer. The semi-classical tinged melody, Karthik and Swetha Mohan's splendid vocals and brilliant Manonmani's Sarangi solos make this one easily the best song in the soundtrack.

Verdict: Vidyasagar's quality melodies continue to work effectually for this sequel and it's baffling that this composer is less in action nowadays.

My Rating:7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Neenda Naal,  Nee Paarkum
