Music Review: Ammani (Tamil)

Composer(s): K

Life E Machaan Machaan and its Yema version are absurdly foot-tapping, thanks to Mukesh's knockout vocals and a catchy brass-band style orchestration that hurtles into overdrive by the end of it all. Gaana Bala is apt for the soothing retro-styled Rotora Padhayile, but it's Vaikom Vijayalakshmi who mesmerises with her amazingly fluid rendition of the classical piece Mazhai Ingillaye. Featuring a lovely assortment of ghatam, mridangam, morsing, violins and jal tarang (?), K delivers a composition that's intoxicating and melodious. After Aarohanam, it's Ammani for K.
