Kavi Uddeshichathu – Music Review (Malayalam Soundtrack)


Songs and full credits at the end.

Guest composer Vinu Thomas delivers the first track of Kavi Uddeshichathu, Innaleyum. The man has always done well with melodic pieces, and delivers here too. There is a mild familiarity in the tune and arrangement, but it works, aided by Arun Alat’s vocal efforts. Rest of the soundtrack is composed by Jakes Bejoy, and he too includes a melodic composition in his set. Kuyilin Paattu has a nice folk-tinged tune that goes splendidly with Jyotish T Kasi’s nostalgia-inducing lines, and the composer makes excellent use of Kamalakar’s flute and Derick’s folk percussion in the backdrop. The only weak link is P Jayachandran’s singing which seems to be a bit off-scale. He is supported well by the kids’ chorus (Baby Neha Chavara, Master Ryan Farooq) though.

The inspirational feel that the composer attempts to bring about in Nerunde Nerunde gains much from the chendamelam-led percussion. The arrangement is pretty well done overall – the other standout elements being violins (Chennai Strings) and mandolin (Seenu). Jakes does a fine job behind the mic as well, alongside Suchith Sureshan. The movie’s ode to money – Paisa Paisa – is a groovy melange of guitars (excellent bass line from Naveen Napier!), brass (Babu on horns) and folk percussion (Shruthi, Derick). Jakes does the singing here as well, along with Jaya Moorthy and T S Ayyappan.

Kavi Uddeshichathu. Engaging soundtrack from Jakes Bejoy and Vinu Thomas.
