Music Review: Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru (Tamil)

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

Theeran Da, in one word, is stadium-rocking, and singers Aravind Srinivas and Sarath Santhosh lend solid vocal support to the punchy military-style arrangement that Ghibran aces with effortless ease. Padmalatha, like before in Magalir Mattum, gets to show a different vocal side in the rhythmic folk fare Tinga Tinga even as the composer, as is his wont, adorns the interlude with lovely Hindustani elements. Sevatha Pulla, sung by K. G. Ranjith, is a wicked mash-up of folk and handclapped grooves sewn together in a totally catchy orchestration, while Sathyaprakash and Pragathi Guruprasad lead Laali Laali, a beautiful lullaby-like melody adorned with mesmerising violins and skittering beats. Armaan Malik-sung O Sathiye is stunning, not just as a pathos-soaked tune, but also for the astounding strings-laden soundscape that manages to be both brooding and dramatic all at once. The unconventionally tuned Oru Veettil sees singers Shashaa Tirupati and Inno Genga in fine mettle, with the soulful melody benefitting immensely from an arresting profusion of strings and a thumping percussion that makes it all the more impactful. Ghibran yet again proves he is a nonpareil with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru in what's one of the most musically rich soundtracks I've heard this year.
