Mella Mella
Singers: Shwetha Subram, Abshek
Lyrics: Soundara Rajan


Mella Mella is a melody to start with Ghibran where he tickles the notes that are usually untouched for a melody genre song.The difference he sets while composing is evident. Piano portions are the backbone when it comes to instrumentation and a violin that teases the listener with just a glimpse. Sung by Shwetha and Abshek, it is a pleasant listen. The chorus lingers in the background.

Maya Masthava 
Singer: Marana Gaana Viji
Lyrics: Sikkander

A techno based folk number for the masses from Ghibran. Electronic beats take the mainstage. It has some Telugu and Tamil lyrics by Sikkander and has been sung by the energetic Marana Gaana Viji. The vocals are digitalised and autotune lovers would enjoy this number. Maya Masthava is a fast paced energetic number that could also have some lively dance steps.

Bodhai Poo 
: Ghibran, Sharanya Gopinath
Lyrics: Vivek


Bodhai Poo as the name suggests has been made to intoxicate the listener. Sharanya sings well in this number which has a lot of drum beats and a slightly haunting effect with the variations used by composer Ghibran. The tune that flows in in the beginning sounds familiar and works well for the number. Lyrics by Vivek are sort of repetitive and follows a loop after a while.


Original Sound Track (OST): The OST of Mayavan includes 14 different tracks that do not have vocals or lyrics, but that convey the intensity of this crime thriller Mayavan. The use of unique sounds and surprise beats with tunes give Mayavan's OST the boost to potentially hold the audience's attention during the scenes of the film. (The music review does not include ratings for the original sound track)

Verdict: Ghibran's magic is evident in the OST but is slightly missing with the songs composed for Mayavan!
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
