Ente Janalarikil is another entry to the fast growing list of songs paying a nod to the 90s sound of Malayalam music. Simple, Malayali tune, and a rich orchestration that is marked by the characteristic domination of violins and flute (Rajesh Cherthala), the naadaswaram-ish cameo from O K Gopi on shehnai is a nice touch. On vocals, P Jayachandran does his job well. Kayampoo Niramayi is more Carnatic in its melody, starting off with a very classical prelude from Thrippunithura Girija Varma (not sure if an actual composition or something written by lyricist Santhosh Varma) before moving onto a lighter but still very abhogi raga-oriented tune delivered beautifully by Swetha Mohan. In the background the percussive exchange between mridangam, ghatam and kanjira is quite engaging. Composer Bijibal’s best offering in the three song soundtrack is the pensive Raavinte. That touch of longing in the raga (not sure which, the mood is sort of akin to such ragas as bhoopaalam and vaasanthi in places, though it is not either) that is conveyed well by Ganesh Sundaram but it is the harmonies from Santhi and Sangeetha that really haunt you. That and the guitar work by Sandeep Mohan.
Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam. Another short but effective soundtrack from Bijibal.
