Songs at the end (don’t be fooled by the length, it is just two songs repeated twice over).
Singer/composer Job Kurian records his first song for Gopi Sunder in Kali, the laid back piece called Chillu Ranthal. The singing is unsurprisingly ace, and Gopi’s arrangement, although bearing faint shades of his past works, is really nicely done. A jazzy/latino rhythm base topped with some fab guitaring and some surprise entries like the shehnai and the Carnatic bit (shanmukhapriya raga?) on violin. Vaarthinkale follows a pop-ish route, riding on a charming melody that is rendered very well by Divya S Menon. The arrangement sticks to the norms, guitars leading the way. The accordion adds a nice touch however. Well written lyrics too, by B K Harinarayanan.
Kali. Lovely, but very short soundtrack from Gopi Sunder. Surprisingly light-hearted songs though, for a movie titled Kali (anger)!
Music Aloud Rating: 7.5/10
PS: Also, just noticing the musical consistency in Dulquer Salmaan movies. There isn’t one that featured a bad soundtrack, if memory serves right.
