Music Review: Sathya (Malayalam)

Composer(s): Gopi Sunder
Listen to the songs online here: YouTube (Millennium Jukebox)

Chinthicho Nee is Vaikom Vijayalakshmi's show even if the semi-classical tune is by now typical Gopi Sunder. The composer fares much better in the simple Carnatic composition Chilankakal, backed by effortless singing from Sithara Krishnakumar. Kaattingathi Veegam and the Halena-inspired Njan Ninne Thedivarum however evoke tedium for the most part, leaving the listener with a sense of dissatisfaction. Sathya is customary and forgettable.
