Oru Oorla Rendu Raja Music Review [D. Imman]

Fantastic album by D. Imman

  • Sundari Penne – Sounds like a lighter, more modern version of the Malayali hit Kizhakku Pookum. Harmonium and rock elements are integrated very well, and the rhythm is an uncommon one. Shreya’s singing (as always) on point. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYEuxBraO2Q)
  • Kukkuru Kukkuru – A particular strength of Imman is basslines. No exception here. Slight recycling of some elements from Muttalai Muttalai from Yennamo Yedho. Lakshmi Menon’s heavy voice enhances the other folk elements of the song. Her singing style is reminiscent of Imman himself. Sathyan crushes it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rVzaszH_vg)
  • Oru Oorla Rendu Raja – Slight recycling of Ammadi Ammadi tune in the song. Good, clean, kuthu otherwise. Distorted veena-like string turning into electric guitar is interesting. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K22T7GXHKhw)
  • Odum Rayile – Flutes set the stage for epic song. Hard to predict the key in the beginning, and a lot of surprise instrumentation is delivered by Imman throughout the course of the song. Abhay Jodhpurkar kills it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjxDqsa_lnk)
  • Mazhakaatha – Solid duet by Haricharan and Vandana Srinivasan. Slight Latin touch is cool. Vandana’s voice has noticeable autotune on it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wgw42GLtFV8)
