Tharangam – Music Review (Malayalam Soundtrack)

Songs and musician credits at the end.

Two of the three tracks in Tharangam are variants of the same song. Debutant composer Ashwin Renju has a fine melody in place for Minnunnunde Mulla Pole. Its first, more filmi version has Karthik leading the vocals in his dependable style. The tune works even better in its alternate version sung by Neha Nair. The synth-based ambient arrangement (topped with Dr. Bhavyalakshmi’s violin) lends the song a dreamy quality. The other song Enthelum Parayanundel is pretty much on the other end of the spectrum with its earthy raucousness. Singer Sajeev Stanley’s rendition isn’t without flaws, but he makes up for that in energy and the drunken-ish drawl. The song is entertaining while it lasts, though not bound to stick in mind.

Short but promising debut from composer Ashwin Renju
