Music Review: Taramani (Tamil)

Composer(s): Yuvan Shankar Raja
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

Yuvan's auto-tuned voice suits perfectly the breezy synth-coated melody Yaaro Ucchikilai Meley, but not so much in the plaintive but beautifully arranged Unnai Unnai Unnai and the sufi-esque Paavangalai, even as actor Siddharth sounds like the composer himself in the pathos-soaked Unn Badhil Vendi. The familiar rap that's Kaadhal Oru Kattukkadhai is well delivered by SuVi and Rita, while Andrea Jeremiah is spot on with her rendition of the hip-hop number Oru Koappai. Taramani's music is soulful and thematically rich, but Yuvan's singing continues to remain one of the soundtrack's weaker links.
