Music Review: Match Box (Malayalam)

Composer(s): Bijibal

Bijibal, in a sense, is like D. Imman, whose list of upcoming releases is a bit hard to keep track of. Both are no doubt talented, but Bijibal fares the better of the two, if only because the number of songs in his soundtracks rarely go over four. Match Box too is short by that yardstick (the whole album is just about 13 minutes long), yet is not without its share of highlights that arrive in the form of beautiful melodies Aaradyam and Orayiram. Chuvadukal and Kettumaranno are comparatively run-of-the-mill, but Afsal's enthusiastic singing of the former elevates it every bit.
