Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga (VSOP) Music Review

Movie: Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga (VSOP)

Cast: Arya,Santhanam,Tamannaah

Director: Rajesh

Music director: D.Imman



1.Vasuvum Saravananum-Kailash Kher,Sooraj Santhosh

A fun filled opening track for Rajesh's yet another comedy film VSOP. What is interesting in this number is that Imman has opted for the usage of electric guitar strums, rock beats and a racy rhythm instead of his usual folk flavor. The lyrics speak about the friendship between the lead characters Vasu and Saravanan. Soon to be a chartbuster!

2.Sona Sona-Armaan Malik,Varun Parandhaman,Maria Roe Vincent

Imman's obsession with the electric guitar is obvious in this peppy track. The catchy tune arrangement makes the song a carefree listen. Armaan Malik and Varun Parandhaman weave magic with their powerful vocals while Maria Roe Vincent's part towards the end is well rendered. The saxophone in the second interlude brings a refreshing change in the track. Though there is nothing new to brag about this number, it would do better with visuals.

3.Lucka Mattikkichi-Dholak Gana Jagan,Senthildass,Palaniammal

Be ready for an enjoyable ride with this Imman's signature folk track. Throughout the song, we can only notice Dholak Gana Jagan's raw rendition and the repetitive rhythm which makes the song foot-tapping. Though this song might turn into the next biggest chartbuster, we can only feel sorry for Imman who gets stereotyped with each number of this kind.

4.Adada Onnum Solladha-Benny Dayal,Shakthisree Gopalan

Finally here comes a serene romantic ballad that is pleasant on the ears, unlike the previous numbers. Though Imman induces folk touches to this number with the rhythm pattern, it is unnoticeable with the mellifluous tune, interesting interludes and soothing vocals of Benny Dayal and Shakthisree Gopalan. Soft and breezy!

5.Naa Romba Busy-Santhosh Hariharan,Neeti Mohan,Sharanya Gopinath

An out and out theri mass number with tanglish lyrics and funky rhythm. Imman indulges some rap sections and classical touches. The final product is an enigmatic number that doesn't quiet strike a chord with the listeners. Even popular singers like Santhosh Hariharan, Neeti Mohan and Sharanya Gopinath cannot save this track.

Verdict:

VSOP isn't Imman's best. It is a debacle for the composer who has given musically rich soundtracks.

Rating: **3/4

Picks:

Vasuvum Saravananum,Adada Onnum Solladha
