Vedalam Music Review

Movie: Vedalam

Cast: Ajith,Shruthi Hassan,Lakshmi Menon

Director: Siva

Music director: Anirudh Ravichander



1.Veera Vinayaka-Anirudh,Vishal Dadlani

A devotional type intro number arrives hot for all Ajith fans. Anirudh weaves an ordinary tune and peps it up with powerful rhythm, screeching electric guitar strums and an energetic chord progression. Both the singers Anirudh and Vishal Dadlani are fierce in their rendition. A typical masala number from Anirudh.

2.Don't You Mess With Me-Shruthi Hassan,Shakthisree Gopalan

This is gonna be a track which is going to be a massive hit with the pubs and discotheques. This girlie hip-hop number is replete with a trance-like tune, Rn'B interludes and a global atmosphere all over. Shruthi Hassan renders like a pro and she sounds like an international singer while Shakthisree Gopalan does a commendable job within her limited space. Turn up the volume and enjoy!

3.Uyir Nadhi Kalangudhe-Ravishankar

Anirudh churns out an exhilarating fusion that is captivating right from the beginning. He blends rock and classical elements and the end product is something ethereal. The innovative Veena section accompanied by ample guitar strums in the interlude stands out. Ravishankar delivers this pathos with such passion that it is endearing to listen to him. Purely situational!

4.The Theri Theme-Instrumental

A mass theme is up next. Anirudh indulges house-mix beats, a melange of blaring sounds (read noise) and the repetitive 'Theri' phrase to make it suitable for probably one of Ajith's stunt sequences.

5.Aaluma Doluma-Anirudh,Baadshah

Here comes the next commercial anthem of the youngsters which brings the album to a fitting finale. Though it might appeal instantly to the front-benchers, we can only sadly cringe at Anirudh being stereotyped with such kind of songs. However, it is mandatory to have such a track in a Ajith's movie and Anirudh does just that. It will surely make you roll up your collars and dance like a maniac.

Verdict:

After an awesome, innovative and musically rich album Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, Anirudh goes back to composing in his bland repetitive templates. Since it is a Ajith's film, we can forgive him!

Rating: **1/2

Picks:
