– Music review by and for
two powerful singers come together,
you expect fireworks to fly
and that’s exactly what
Shankar and Vasundra have managed
to do in Machakari.
They seem to be competing with
each other trying hard to out
do the other. Rahman lays out
the perfect platform for them
to experiment and excel. The
song starts with a bang but
tends to fizzle out mid way.
Picturization would play a vital
role in deciding the success
of the song.
the by, don’t we expect something
much more than this from Rahman, as
we do when Sachin goes out to bat or
when the Superstar is about to the hit
Mozart of Madras gets into his
Kizhakku Cheemayilae style with
the next number, Kummi
Voices used are rustic and original.
A very light hearted song, but
this doesn’t stop the
experimenter from letting his
imagination run wild. Rahman’s
favorite Mani is in full flow
with his drums. (With the drums
playing such a pivotal role
in the song, my guess is that
These days, it’s imperative
for movies to have one for the
dance floors. Maaricham
Yatho is one such
bits and pieces of the song are good,
it’s nothing inspirational.
Might catch up with good visuals.
The new comers (singers) show great
promise. The lead male voice, I am
not sure if its Aslam or Krishna,
is magnetic. Carolisa does an excellent
job with great versatility in her
title song Jillunnu
oru kadhal is quite
interesting. It is of the same
genre as his previous Hello
Mr.Ethir katchi from Iruvar.
It symbolizes the fun and frolic
of the movie. The first time
you listen, it doesn’t
register with you, but when
you listen to it a couple of
times you start humming the
tune and when you see the trailer,
it completely gets on to you.
Tanvil does a fabulous job giving
a jazz touch to her voice.
Shreya comes back again, this
time with S.P.B Saran for Maja
Maja and gives us
a duet, a real sensual one.
singers are fabulous, with Saran
almost sounding exactly like
his legendary father as he gains
some age. There is a part where
he says “Jillunu oru ginger
beeru than”, very reminiscent
of the renowned S.P.B. But the
highlight of the song is what
I keep referring to as the REMs.
Here it’s a Santur (again
correct me if I am wrong) playing
a captivating tune midway. This
song will definitely capture
the imagination of the audience
if the movie hits the bull’s
need a special mention here. Every
song has the lyrics fitting the mood
to the tee.
Munbe va and New York nagaram are
the two out standing ones .
Two out of the world songs, two light
ones, one for the dance floor and
two sensual duets. Go grab your CD!!
