Maya Music Review

Movie: Maya

Cast: Aari,Nayanthara

Director: Ashwin Saravanan

Music director: Ron Ethan Yohaan



1.Aayiram Aayiram-Chinmayi Sripada

The tinkling bells in the prelude sets the eerie mood for this haunting number. It gets even better when Chinmayi croons it with her modulated voice which adds spookiness to the number. The fast paced beats, gothic orchestration and exuberant guitar strums give the listeners a heart-thumping experience!

2.Naanae Varuven-Swetha Mohan

The magic of this song lies in its unplugged mode which perfectly captivates the listeners. The tune arrangement flows in its own way and the accompanied piano notes provide a serene atmosphere. Swetha Mohan's lullaby voice can be listened to any number of times just for its sweetness. Though listeners may not give this number a second listen, it sticks to the theme of this movie!

3.Thoonga Kangal-Shakthisree Gopalan

When Shakthisree begins 'Thoonga kangal' in her raw and unadulterated vocals, we know that we are in for a treat. This is yet another haunting number indulging in a romantic tone. The heavenly acoustic guitar strums and mellowed rhythm makes it a soothing listen. Richly addictive!

4.Always A Woman-Theme

This is a beautiful instrumental piece replete with mild piano notes, grand symphony and angelic chorus. It forms as a perfect background score for the movie!

5.Hope & Despair-Theme

Beginning with racy piano notes, this instrumental is a grand journey through a magnificent symphony and some traces of Thoonga Kangal here and there.

6.Dark Hours-Theme

With numerous highs and lows throughout the score, this instrumental is an innovative one which gives goosebumps at many places due to its eerie setting.

Verdict:

Ron Ethan Yohaan delivers a calm and haunting album pertaining to the theme of the movie!

Rating: ***

Picks:

Aayiram Aayiram,Thoonga Kangal,Always A Woman-Theme
