Miruthan Music Review

Movie: Miruthan

Cast: Jayam Ravi,Lakshmi Menon

Director: Shakti Soundar Rajan

Music director: D.Imman



1.Munnal Kadhali-Vishal dadlani,Sharanya Gopinath,D.Imman

The album begins on a high note with this energetic love track. Imman goes out of his comfort zone to compose an unconventional tune with excellent digital sequencing, pan flute loops and screeching hard rock guitar strums. Vishal Dadlani's powerhouse singing works in the favor of the track as he effuses energy with each and every line. Though the mood of the track is racy, there is an underlying melody that will definitely strike you. This number is gonna rock the charts!

2.Bitten By Insanity-Instrumental

Imman spins an intricate web of instrumental masterpiece that adopts well to the theme of the movie. Everything is so perfect in this theme- be it the brilliant violins, the engaging grand piano notes or the eerie chorus, everything falls into place aptly. Added to these, the thumping beats give an even more serious tone to the theme. Amazingly orchestrated!

3.Veri Veri Veri-Suraj Jagan,Maria Kavita Thomas

Once again Imman does a splendid job in composing an experimental track, unlike the songs that he has composed for his previous albums. In this track, he indulges in hard rock progression amply supported by the hoarse vocals of Suraj Jagan and the spooky humming by Maria Kavita Thomas. This number will definitely scorch the screens with its visuals.

4.Mirutha Mirutha-Vijay Yesudhas,Shreya Ghoshal,D.Imman

An emotional clarinet section opens this beautiful melodious duet. Shreya Ghoshal's honey-dipping voice welcomes the listeners, punctuated by a haunting tune, eerie symphonic progression, Vijay Yesudhas' heartrending vocals and the occasional trombone section. However, it is Shreya's passionate rendition that will melt your heart. Going by the lyrics, this track would appear in a critical point of the movie. Madhan Karky deserves a special mention  for the lyrics which speak about the unavoidable death and afterlife. Musically rich!

5.Horrifying Zombies-Instrumental

Imman composes yet another plot-specific theme. Here, he takes on hip-hop style for the rhythm arrangement and a retro feel for the orchestration. This theme exactly portrays the nature of zombies.

6.Munnal Kadhali (Reprise)-Haricharan

The chartbuster track of the album arrives as a mesmerizing reprise in the evergreen voice of Haricharan. His voice drips with melody as he croons his lines with passion. Imman gives a Jazz treatment to the entire number and provides indeed a treat with his excellent chord progression. The mellowed saxophone and piccolo sections in the background elevates the jazzy mood of the song. Heartwarming end!

Verdict:

Imman's urban outing is musically rich. The songs from this soundtrack are sure to be on the playlists for a long time!

Rating: ****
