Music Review: Simba (Tamil)

Composer(s): Vishal Chandrasekhar

The haunting violins are clearly the highlight of Pinjula Pinjula, an otherwise customary love failure song sung by STR. Marandhadhe is classic rock fare, with Anirudh Ravichander crooning the melody very well in his signature style. The wacky Sarpetta and Bow Wow Vadai both carry a strong Santhosh Narayanan vibe, but are enjoyable funky listens. Vandhaene takes this wackiness to an all new level while being groovy at the same time, even as Sinduri Vishal impressively belts out the melodious Pesugiraai. High on techno influences, Vishal makes it all sound interesting without going overboard in Simba.
