Thegidi is an upcoming mystery thriller starring Ashok Selvan and Janani Iyer. Written and Directed by Ramesh, the film has music by Nivas Prasanna.
A carefully constructed tune with a modern take on the Carnatic raagam Abheri, despite a few deviations in the interludes, houses an unexpectedly charming progression in the melody which elevates the composition each time the moment arrives. The song features an immersive vocal performance from Sathya Prakash and also introduces the proficient backing band which plays a large role in this album.
A moody and mysterious sounding down-tempo tune possessing an air of tension with its intermittent violins, haunting piano notes and muted segments. Andrea’s soul singing set to the noir sound does manage to get under your skin. The precise use of the theme-like chorus adds magnificence.
Coming in the form of yet another fine interpretation of Abheri, the opening Piano notes make way for some deft and delightful guitar work. The clever stop-starts and the interplay beautifully highlight the potency of a solid band. As much as the singers stand in the forefront with their impeccable performance, the role of the enterprising backing band can in no way be undermined as they contribute strongly to the dynamics of this composition. This track in particular would deem fit as an ideal way to bring the charismatic nature of funk and rock music to the door step of the regional audience.
The flute’s build up works well for this sorrowful tune that doesn’t overstay its welcome. The bass and string section provide the additional drama along with Ajesh’s emotive performance.
Shankar Mahadevan begins on a dark and serious note with the band lurking in the background waiting to burst through. The big bang however comes in the form of Rajesh Vaidhya’s processed Veena solos which definitely stand as one of the album’s highlights. Again the band’s playing is super tight and the individual flourishes thrown in by the musicians give this Sindhu Bhairavi based composition a live feel. Shankar on the other hand is given a melody that sees him employing his complete range and delivering a powerhouse performance.
