I do not see any discussions on Santhosh Narayanan here. I heard some rumblings about his BGM in Jigiridanda (To me, it sounded like Morricone stuff).

I did not like any of his songs in Jigiridanda or Madras.

Thoughts?

I find Santhosh to be quite good among the current crop but get a feel he's being overhyped. But would take him over the Harris Jayarajs and Anirudhs. But early days IMO. Will need to see his work over the coming years.

Found this track by one Ranjith Melappat. Minimal interludes, arrangements and all that. But the melody is quite lovely.

Re Santosh Narayanan, thought the Cuckoo songs were pleasant though I wasn't overwhelmed.

Re Santosh Narayanan. His latest for Roshan Andrews's 36 Vayadhinile. Cool sounding folkish-jazz song. Quite a delight. Well done.

Surprised, no one is talking about Uttama Villain soundtrack, not just here. I have not seen any social media or music reviewers talking much about this soundtrack. To me this one is a phenomenal soundtrack in the last 20 years which have come from a music director other than Maestro. It's almost a shame that such a quality is coming (only) once in 20 years (point to be noted as this comment is for the entire soundtrack, there were some brilliant 1 or 2 songs in the movie, but not as a whole). Don't know when will such soundtrack come again from this generation. When people get hyped over some popular (but mediocre) music of today, ably amplified and bombast ed by (hallow) music directors, this soundtrack comes with no noise and rules our hearts (if you listen to it at-least once).

Except for one drishtiprathikaaram; Loveaa Loveaa, all other offerings are truly breath-taking and timeless classics. The way the songs and stories are laid out is again the best. It's almost like reading a novel, or hearing someone reading a book for us during our drive. Every story from Iraniyan Naagam,  Mutharasan Kathai, Uttaman Introduction, Uttaman kathai to Saagavaram and Uttama Villain theme, it takes us exactly where it is intended to. Kamal's rendition is top notch with perfect modulations. Lyrics, especially the word flow in all the story songs is amazing. Connoisseur of art!!! Brilliant orchestration surprisingly on the story songs, leaving enough room for visuals and also keep checking the period it was supposed to me meant for. Kaadhalaam kadavuL mun is again a brilliant gem. Thematic tracks also seduces us.

Even when I hugely applaud Ghibran for coming up with such a stunning soundtrack which the film music was almost in a drought for the past 20 years, I still doubt if it is totally his ability and skills. As Kamal answered in the audio release function that, if he could not come up with at-least such a soundtrack after working with Maestro for 100 films, he is an idiot. That goes to say that his contribution to this soundtrack is not just to lyric writing and singing, it also says that he has a much bigger hand in composing the tunes and themes.

Anyway, this is a stunning soulful masterpiece, that I would relish for a long time to come. Can't wait to see the movie having already overwhelmed with the soundtrack. Huge kudos to Kamal and Ghibran applause  noteworthy  Please don't miss it.

Santhosh Narayanan


So, what’s the solution?

What the actor desperately needs now is a script doctor. Much like how he left everything in the hands of qualified doctors during his 2011 medical trials, he needs to forget logistics and image, and hand himself over to Pa Ranjith and team.

Those not tuned into the Tamil film industry might have not even heard of Ranjith’s name and might be wondering about his credentials. Well, that’s exactly the point – sometimes, it takes a rank outsider to shake things a little bit in life. Even with Rajinikanth.

If with his debut flick Attakathi, Ranjith made just another youthful subject, with Madras, he showed finesse in his craft. And now, with a strong technical crew in tow – the supremely-talented Santhosh Nararayan scores music – the director has all the backing he needs.

It would be interesting to see what will be delivered...

Good Catch!  It looks like GVP has taken Balki's advice to heart about flicking pieces of IR's BGM and building songs around it!

Anirudh's latest; Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, is quite good. Though he's had to channel a bit of Santhosh Narayanan.

Santhosh Narayan

Anirudh gets kicked out of a Dhanush project! (தலைமறைவாக இருப்பதன் பலன்)


முதலில் இப்படத்துக்கு அனிருத் இசையமைப்பதாக அறிவித்தார்கள். ஆனால், 'பீப்' பாடல் சர்ச்சையில் சிக்கியிருப்பதால் அனிருத் இன்னும் சென்னைக்கு வரவில்லை. விரைவில் சென்னை திரும்ப இருப்பதாக அவருக்கு நெருக்கமானவர்கள் தெரிவித்தார்கள்.

'கொடி' படத்தின் படப்பிடிப்பு தொடங்கப்பட்டு, பாடல்கள் தேவை என்பதால் படத்தின் இசையமைப்பாளராக இருந்த அனிருத் நீக்கப்பட்டு சந்தோஷ் நாராயணன் ஒப்பந்தம் செய்யப்பட்டு இருக்கிறார்

Since there is no Marathi film/music thread, I will post it here Smile

I have been listening to Sairat soundtrack from Ajay-Atul for the past few days. As we know them as the Ekalaivan(s) of Maestro's music. The songs they make has that inspiration clearly. Be it Natarang, Jogwa or Agneepath it would be a mark-able difference and deviation from the rest of Bollywood or Marathi sound tracks. We can even feel at home when we listen to them.



This song Sairat Zaala Ji song is a fun love song sung by Ajay Gogavale and Chinmayi (yes surprising) with generous expressions from the heroine Rinku. This feels like our Thamizh films where we see these kind of expressions and setting frequently. The melody is in folk, while the orchestration was predominantly done in WCM. I heard that the soundtrack was recorded in Sony studios, Los Angeles.

The soundtrack has four songs, but surprisingly I only liked this song with some reservations. The other song melodies were average which didn't invoke much interest in me. Even in this song, even if the melody is fine, the orchestration is quite questionable. Even the rhythm section is over-powering for the soft setting. After each anu-pallavi/charaNam it starts off with some wind instruments (with backing strings), but suddenly WCM takes off from nowhere and again the part where it ends and gives lead to charaNam is not that convincing. First for this kind of folk setup, a prolonged WCM score does not quite complement the visuals/setting/melody. If you listen to the song without the visuals we can feel that incompatibility clearly. The director had to forcefully shoot panoramic/aerial just for WCM part to give the impact, but definitely falls very short. This is where they need to learn how Maestro changes the notes/genre/instruments frequently within the interludes, that we don't even realize it as a separate "stick-out" entities in any of the songs. There will still be more complex WCM idioms, but no one can say these components distracted the melody,visuals or the setting. Here I can say that. While it is laudable effort from the duo, still much more to learn from Maestro's compositions Smile

I'm yet to hear the other songs of kabAli - meanwhile, there's a review from vikatan which carefully does iruttadippu on two important IR-RK albums (ejamAn / veerA) :
http://www.vikatan.com/cinema/tamil-cinema/music-review/65140-kabali-songs-quicklook.art


16 வயதினிலேவில் ஆரம்பித்த கமல் - ராஜா காம்போ, நடுநடுவில் விட்டாலும் சபாஷ் நாயுடு வரை தொடர்கிறது. ரஜினியைப் பொறுத்தவரை, ரஜினி - இளையராஜா என்கிற கூட்டுச் சாம்ராஜ்யத்தை சந்திரபோஸ், அம்சலேகா என்று சிலர் எட்டிப் பார்த்துவிட்டுப் போனாலும், தேவாதான் அண்ணாமலை படம் மூலம் அதை மெள்ள ஆக்ரமித்தார்.

By the time Chandrabose (& others) came to MD for Rajinikanth, he had already become a huge brand. 

Actually, in that star brand creation, though IR had a mild initial contribution ("பொதுவாக எம்மனசு தங்கம்"), his later work didn't continue in building him into a larget-than-life image thingy. Interestingly, like every other star movie, only the IR brand got glorified even in Rajini movies. (e.g. while KH sang 'rAjA kaiya vachchA', RK was dancing to 'rAjA, rAjAdhi rAjan indha rAjA' melody in 'mAmA un poNNakkodu'.)

So, I would take IR out of the Rajini brand building history. While IR gave majority of # of hit albums for RK, and indirectly contributed to his rise as a successful hero, his contribution in "super star brand building" is < 1% IMHO.

Actually, in a way, he worked against it (for e.g. making a lot of comical songs for him Laughing and emotional numbers such as sittukku / ammA enRazhaikkAdha, things that show him in pAmaran mode rather than 'bullet kooda onnum paNNAdhu' kind of superhero mode)

Such 'super star' brand was originally powered by MSV (my name is biilA) and may be S-G in the years prior to Chandrabose - who finally did the 'super star-u yArunnu kEttA' stuff.  Later Deva / Vidyasagar (even ARR, in Sivaji) continued it and the latest is Santhosh Narayanan. 

That way, from Chandrabose to current, the MD & RK worked together to harvest the benefits of the brand that originally got created by MSV. (Who had earlier mastered the art of such hero-big-brand-building, working with MGR).

As for IR, he typically worked against building "larger than life" hero image - and that included RK, if one takes all the works he did for him into account!

Apart from just a few minutes of Kaaga glory, Mirzya is such a disaster to me. After soulful and silent Kambhoji, this soundtrack is full of incoherent noise and disonance!! What a fall for S-E-L from Katyar Kaljat Ghusli to Mirzya!! Embarassed

All I can say is, I was in a state as Kounder (that growl, acting and expression of Kounder is priceless) was when listening to this soundtrack.

And the crap called Halena. A vomiting song! This is all what Harris Jeyaraj could come up with after all these years of isolation? No imagination, no novelty, nothing at all. That jivvu jivvu matter is there to mark his signature. scratch Some one told me that this is the only good song (LOL), imagining how other songs would be. TFM is totally screwed.
