Music Review: Jil (Telugu)

Composer(s): M. Ghibran

Man on Fire is full-on rock, with the heavy percussion and guitar strums lending the theme song a punchy twist. Bianca Gomes's rendition in particular is superb. Yazin Nizar and Shalmali Kholgade are fantastic in the uptempo techno-melody Jil Jil Jil Manase (Run Raja Run's Shanthi Om Shanthi immediately came to my mind!), as singers Blaaze and Sangita Santosham take the EDM route in the adequately catchy Swing Swing SwingPori Masala Pori is no different, mixing an array of electronic sounds against a folksy setting to impressive effect. Yemaiyindhi Vela, with its lovely banjo-violin-guitar interplay, is enticing country-meets-EDM fusion and the best of the lot. Barring a little techno overdose, Ghibran shows a diametrically different musical side in Jil.
