Music Review: Maayavan (Tamil)

Composer(s): M. Ghibran
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

Shwetha Subram and Abshek lead the euphonious Mella Mella, and needless to say the layered composition is a delightful listen. Set amidst a profusion of trumpets, accordion, violins and thudding beats, Bodhai Poo is intoxicating in Sharanya Gopinath's top-notch singing, while Marana Gaana Viji-sung Aaluma Doluma-like Maya Masthava is the surprise highlight, working well as a marana gaana and a heady techno-kuthu. What sets the soundtrack apart are the 13 thematic instrumental pieces that follow, with each of them seamlessly blending with one other into a cohesive, intense whole. Ghibran delivers a rich engaging soundtrack in Maayavan.
