Odura Nari is instantly identifiable as a Sean Roldan product, there are tell-tale signs all through the song, particularly the guitars and the man’s own singing. Entertaining song though, especially for the rap style wacky lines written by Sean himself. The kanjira strikes the occasional discordant note in otherwise nice Thanniyila, highlighted by some lovely violins while the guitars impart a jazz undertone. The melody is sung by Pradeep Kumar and Divya Ramani. One Day Enum Match is a fairly regular rock song by Sean’s standards, groovy but in a rather heard-before manner. The highlight of the song is Alphonse Joseph’s singing though, the high pitch he manages to reach in the latter half of the song is unbelievable! The soundtrack’s best are the remaining two songs. In Naalellam the composer creates a beautifully addictive piece out of a folk base in a slightly Rahman-esque fashion. The rich arrangement features some very nice flute and harmonium amidst an assortment of folk percussion, while beneath all this is a superb bass line. All this in support of Shaktisree Gopalan’s fabulous singing. Nalla Kettukka Paadam is a trippy retro fusion piece, yesteryear drama style portions ensconced in a disco type arrangement. Sean Roldan and A L Raghavan do a super job of rendering the comedic lines as well.
Aadama Jaichomada. Not as awesome as Sean Roldan’s other three soundtracks this year, but there is some good music to be heard nevertheless.
