Kaaki Sattai (2015) Music Review

Movie: Kaaki Sattai (2015)

Cast: Sivakarthikeyan,Sri Divya

Director: R.S.Durai Senthilkumar

Music director: Anirudh Ravichander



1.Kaaki Sattai-Vishal Dadlani

The title song of Kaaki Sattai begins on a rocking note. Vishal Dadlani's coarse voice, the high digitized blazers and the backing chorus are perfect. The hard rock guitar section peps up the number even more. The police siren and walkie-talkie have been put to good use. Highly energetic!

2.Kadhal Kan Kattudhe-Anirudh Ravichander,Shakthisree Gopalan

Definitely the pick of the album! As soon as Shakthisree begins with her honey-dipping voice along with the dulcet guitar strums, the song pulls you in a romantic trance. The number in itself is a fusion of mild folk and western which is a new genre in Kollywood music industry. Anirudh's part is passionate as he sings as if a cupid has struck him. The flute section in the latter part of the song exhibits Anirudh's knack of composing catchy melodies. Chartbuster love duet!

3.The Trooper Theme-Anirudh Ravichander

This very short theme is a varied mix of rap, DJ, electronica and dub-step. It's good as long as it lasts but doesn't match up to Anirudh's previous themes.

4.I'm So Cool-Anirudh Ravichander,Sivakarthikeyan 

A modern day guy wooing a girl song. This number is on the lines of Aathi Enna Nee, though the lyrics here are quirky and in Thanglish. The childish flute loops adds to the fun quotient of the song. What brings a smile on our face is Sivakarthikeyan's occasional gimmicks! Anirudh's English part is refreshing to listen. Another winner!

5.Kaaki Sattai Theme-Anirudh Ravichander

Hard rock guitar coupled with chenda melam gives a delighful feel to this theme. Though fast paced, the saxophone plays a vital part in giving this theme a wholesomeness.

6.Kattikida-Anthony Dasan,Manasi,Anitha

Another Darling Dambakku on the way. Though not as catchy as the former, this number has its own moments like Anthony Dasan's rustic rendition, the beautiful violin interlude and Manasi's energetic voice. This track could turn as a perfect dance number in the reality shows. Anirudh leaves his trademark in this folk song.

7.Shake That-Anirudh Ravichander

And here comes Anirudh's oft repeated type of track in almost all his albums. What stands out in this number is the repetitive 'Shake That'. A hip-hop song in typical Anirudh way is something not new to us. But even then this track would strike a chord with his fans in a good way.

Verdict:

Anirudh continues successfully from where he had left in Kaththi. This album is also another winner from him containing all elements of music.

Rating: ***1/2

Picks:

Kaaki Sattai,Kadhal Kan Kattudhe,I'm So Cool
