Velli Thirai - Audio Review

The sonorous melody Uyirile glistens with Rahman’ish touches across interludes, backgrounds and the tune that seems reaches varying, Rahman-like highs! Dhaiyare dhaiya is incredibly innovative - dollops of Rahman’ish flourishes, Celtic deviations, with generous stepdancing elements thrown in. Sooriyane has Lucky Ali mincing Tamil words into a mess, within a neat, Rock’ish tune, while Kanji paanayin, while being thoroughly enjoyable, showcases both the composer’s immaturity in using utterly disparate stock sounds and seeking valid inspiration from Rahman’s fusion-qawali tracks like Monalisa. But, despite all this, Vellithirai is a very interesting soundtrack and a confident step ahead for the young composer.
