Stupendous effort by Imman, but not as stunning as ‘Kumki’

Filmmaker Prabhu Solomon and music director Imman have somehow managed to offer a hat-trick hit through ‘Mynaa’, ‘Kumki’ and ‘Kayal’. Now they have their standards set higher for their fourth outing titled ‘Thodari’ as it involves big names like Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh. The film’s audio released this morning has been carrying some good buzzes and here is our music review.

Adadaa Ithuyenna
Singers: Haricharan, Vandana Srinivasan
Lyricist: Yuga Bharathi

As soon as the track starts, there is a relentless string work that lets you imbibe and feel the nostalgic memories of Ilayaraja genre. Imman offers more sumptuous instrumentals that keeps going on and one with efficient engrossment. But the intonating style by Haricharan and Vandana Srinivasan is just middling.

Oorellam Kekkudhe
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Maria Roe
Lyricst: Yuga Bharathi

Maybe, this is the introduction song of Keerthy Suresh and it all sounds the same as erstwhile composing of D Imman albums. But as usual Shreya Ghoshal adds her best to ice the song and it gives an enlivening feel to the lyrical lines of Yuga Bharathi.

Manasunam Manasunam
Singer: Gaana Bala
Lyrics: Yuga Bharathi

Gaana Bala has become an intriguing part of almost all the recent albums composed by any music directors. This one looks like a track that would be placed during the jovial portion of the film and this is about the man’s current life, where the importance of relationship values are declining due to the technological advancements like Whatsapp.

Pona Usuru Vanthuruchu
Singer: Haricharan, Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Yuga Bharathi

Again, there is Shreya Ghoshal who exerts the best to get the song on top perfection levels. This is a soulful melodious duet that has Haricharan too offering the kudos effect. The composing of interludes and preludes by D Imman deserves best appreciations and it is stirring up the senses.

Love in Wheels
Singer: Chinna Ponnu, Nathan

As the album comes to an end, it gets a valuable touch with this instrumental track titled ‘Love on Wheels’ and this is going to be something more like a dancing panache or something with montage visuals. Starts off with a lullaby style by Chinna Ponnu followed by instrumentals and it is one of the best numbers in this album.

There are couple of Karaoke tracks in the album as it is tagged in all the albums of D Imman, which would give music listeners a chance to croon the number.

Overall, ‘Thodari’ has some good music and D Imman has given his best efforts in doing justice to Prabhu Solomon. But when you hear it in comparison to their previous albums, it is not as best as ‘Mynaa’ and ‘Kumki’, but is on pars with a different style though.

Verdict : Stupendous effort by Imman, but not as stunning as ‘Kumki’.
