Music Review: Server Sundaram (Tamil)

Composer(s): Santhosh Narayanan
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

Bro is a catchy enough friendship anthem to warrant multiple listens but Santhosh Narayanan's singing is not its strong point. The arrangements in Nirkadhey and Gama Gama Samayal leave a lot to be desired, the blend of musical styles at best uneven. Sid Sriram-sung Kannaal Modhadhey goes for a funky vibe that's moderately engaging and reminiscent of Azhagiya Soodana Poovey, while the soundtrack's best arrives in the form of Unavey Marundhu, a lyrically first-rate and ear-pleasing semi-classical tune that works wonders in Ranjani and Gayatri's competent rendition. Server Sundaram entertains but is no musical feast.
