Sethupathi Music Review

Movie: Sethupathi

Cast: Vijay Sethupathi,Remya Nambeesan

Director: S.U.Arun Kumar

Music director: Nivas K Prasanna




1.Mazhai Thooralam-Nivas K Prasanna

Nivas K Prasanna composes and croons a soulful pathos that is sure to be a tear-jerker when played on the screens. Nivas' emotion laden rendition and the motivational lyrics are the major plus points of the mellifluous track. The symphonic arrangement accompanied by a dulcet chorus and acoustic guitar sections add to the forlorn mood of the song. Heartrending opening!

2.Konji Pesida Venaam-KS Chitra,Sriram Parthasarathy

Beginning with playful electronic loops, this duet reminds of the love songs of early 2000s. Especially it is Chitra's evergreen voice that takes you back on a nostalgic sojourn. It is very refreshing to listen to Sriram Parthasarathy after a long time. Despite the retro feel, this song works big time due to its simplistic tune and the modern arrangements. 

3.Hey Mama-Anirudh Ravichander

Going by the lyrics, it is evident that this number is the introduction song for Vijay Sethupathi. Overloaded with rock progression, rap and police siren sounds, this song serves as the perfect one for a cop. Anirudh rocks the number with his powerhouse singing.

4.Hawa Hawa-Karthik,Saindhavi

This carefree love ballad reflects the romantic side of a tough cop. The tune is a charming one, punctuated with cheesy lyrics that complement the laidback mood of the song. Karthik's soft rendition is apt for this number and Saindhavi's childlike voice is pleasing to the ears. This love track makes for an enjoyable listen on a lovey-dovey evening!

5.Thaen Kootil-V.M.Mahalingam

Mellowed piano notes welcome the listeners to yet another situational pathos. The unplugged factor of the song is elevated by the earthy vocals of V.M.Mahalingam whose robust voice can drive the listeners to tears. Serves as a good ending to the album.

Verdict:

Though Nivas K Prasanna's sophomore album might not be as exceptional as his first one, it still engages the listeners with a couple of likeable melodies and a powerful introduction song.

Rating: ***

Picks:

Mazhai Thooralam,Hawa Hawa
