Music Review: Ee Adutha Kaalathu

Gopi Sunder, of Anwar fame, is back with a short and an immensely engrossing soundtrack in Ee Adutha Kaalathu. Vijay Yesudas is fantastic in Oru Vazhiyai, a mappila pattu on the lines of his Kizhakku Pookkum (Anwar). The tune is simplistic, yet addictive, and the harmonium laden interlude is just a sheer delight. O Ponthoovalai is a gorgeous jazzy piece with some brilliant orchestration and the singers Sithara and Rahul Nambiar are excellent. The short rock track Naatil Veetil packs in great energy, with the composer taking over the reins as a singer along with Anna Katharina Valayil. However, I felt it had a faint similarity to Ram Sampath's Bhaag D.K. Bose (Delhi Belly). EAK is definitely one of the better OST's in recent times!
