Music Review: Thirumanam Enum Nikkah (Tamil)

Composer(s): M. Ghibran
Film: Thirumanam Enum Nikkah

Ghibran's musical versatility is by now well-known and his latest Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah may as well be his best work till date! Chillendra Chillendra's sufi touches are very evident and beautifully composed, and Ghibran regular Sundar Narayana Rao (who needs to sing more!) and Kaushiki Chakrabarty, along with the chorus, do a commendable job singing the spectacular melody. Shadab Faridi and Chinmayi rock the piano-backed electro fusion Enthaaraa Enthaaraa, and the composer's wizardry with the arrangements is truly captivating. Kannukkul Pothivaippen is undoubtedly the stunner of the soundtrack. The semi-classical melody's orchestration is scintillating, especially the jal-tarang and ghatam, and gets pitch-perfect support from Charulatha Mani, Dr. R. Ganesh, Sadhana Sargam and Vijay Prakash. Kwaja Ji and Zikr, the traditional Islamic pieces, are handled with adequate poise, while Rayile Raa has to be the most experimental of the lot. Expertly mixing sounds of a child crying in the opening segment, it transforms into an exhilarating EDM piece. Lead singer Bonnie Chakraborty's invigorating rendition aptly complements it too. Yaaro Ival's percussion and beats rule the roost as Yazin Nizar confidently croons the endearing melody. From Vaagai Sooda Vaa to Thirumanam Enum Nikkah, composer M. Ghibran has demonstrated an impressive range that makes him one of the most exciting finds in recent times. One of the best soundtracks this year. Period!
