Music Review (Malayalam): Kaamuki

Music Review (Malayalam): Kaamuki
Music Composer: Gopi Sundar
Kurumbi, song about mischievous daughter, sung perfectly by the child prodigy Sreya Jayadeep and the average tune is propped up by Sumesh Parameswar's brilliant bass line. The title hook is catchy enough and the singer makes this one work easily. Gopi Sundar delivers his best in the heady maapilla paatu styled Sowhrudam and the song instantly takes me back to composer's Kizhakku Pookum from Anwar. Mithun Jayaraj and Sithara Krishnakumar nails the tune with their pitch perfect vocals with ample support from the chorus. The title hook is an incredibly catchy stuff from the composer and Mithun's sargams along with Sithara's vocals makes this one an wonderful listen. Gopi Sundar delivers another breath taking melody with mild Quawalli touch to the tune and an undeniable highlight is Jossy Alpy Sax and loved the way the transition between Sumesh's classically played guitar leaves way for wonderful Sax. Divya S Menon steals the show with her mesmerising vocals.

Verdict: Gopi Sundar's short 3 song soundtrack is enjoyable and the two melodies standout with ample things to love.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the album: Sowhrudam, Neeyam Sooryan
