Music Review: Aan Dhevathai (Tamil)

Composer(s): M. Ghibran

Vineeth Sreenivasan scores big time in Nigara Than Nigara, a splendorous melody accompanied by a beautiful mix of veena and lullaby'ish beats. Malarin Narumanam goes the serene qawwali route, yet the vintage Ghibran in its layered arrangements is unmissable. Prominent Kannada singer Chaitra Ambadipudi makes her Tamil singing debut with Pesugindren Pesugindren (although it's not her first song for Ghibran; she recently sang Naanaagiya Nadhimoolamae's Telugu version in Vishwaroopam II), a soft melody that unfurls quickly to become an experimental-yet-engrossing classical-dubstep fusion. The kuthu flourishes in Roattu Kadai Party sound out of place, but the tune in itself is quite catchy, even as the theme song turns out to be utterly captivating, with the composer crafting a nuanced, lilting mix of violins, strings and flute. Ghibran strikes gold yet again with Aan Dhevathai.
