Aambala Music Review

Movie: Aambala

Cast: Vishal,Hansika Motwani

Director: Sundar C

Music director: Hip Hop Tamizha


Aambala is the next commercial venture by Sundar C after his super-hit horror comedy Aranmanai. Vishal and Hansika Motwani play the lead roles in this movie. Renowned hip hop singers and rappers Hip Hop Tamizha debut as a composer.

 


1.Aye Aye Aye-Hip Hop Tamizha

A fast paced peppy number loaded with interesting beats and trumpet sounds in the background. Though it sounds much like Pakkam Vanthu from Kaththi, Hip Hop Tamizha feed some of their style in the tune construction. This opener track provides us an overview of what the album has to offer. As usual the rap section by Hip Hop Tamizha stand out in the entire song. Colorful starter!

2.Inbam Pongum Vennila-Hip Hop Tamizha

This number is a remake of the yesteryear classic. Aadhi's version stays true to the original albeit the digitalized sounds. The rhythm section, EDM tones and the Nadhaswaram in the interlude prove that Hip Hop Tamizha are a great duo who can retain an old song in its true form.

3.Madras To Madurai-Kailash Kher,Maria Roe Vincent,Vishnu Priya

It's surprising to listen to Kailash Kher after a long time. Though known for his melodious numbers, he gets a tailor made tune in the form of this song. Maria's rendition makes the number even more livelier. This track is sure to rock the dance floors as well as the charts. It has minimal orchestration, overloaded beats and simple hummable tune. Chartbuster!

4.Pazhagikalaam-Hip Hop Tamizha

Hip Hop Tamizha croon yet another club number that is sure to make its way to pubs and bars. Their gibberish lyrics can easily connect with the yo-yo kind of youngsters. Though it has nothing new to offer, it is instantly addictive and has an universal appeal. Another winner!

5.Vaa Vaa Vaa Vannila-Mohit Chauhan,Amrita Shekar

Here comes the awesome Mohit Chauhan after two hit numbers Po Nee Po and Velicha Poove. He has his way with this number and rules throughout. This track falls in the category of R&B melody with blaring synthesizers in the interlude. Amrita Shekar sounds much like Shruthi Hassan and she is the perfect choice for this rocking love number. Makes for a sunny listen.

6.Yaar Enna Sonnalum-Kutle Khan,Anthony Dasan,Varun

This track is something that can never be categorized. Sometimes it sounds like a folk number and sometimes it sounds like a western number. Hip Hop Tamizha introduce something new in this song but it cannot be traced easily by casual listeners. However the overall ethereal feel of this number can put you in a trance till the end. Anthony Dasan and the other singers do a commendable job.

Verdict:

Hip Hop Tamizha make a grand debut as composers. Though the songs are urban and cheesy, they take time grow on listeners who connect with simple music.

Rating: ***

Picks:

Aye Aye Aye,Madras To Madurai,Pazhagikalaam
