Maanga (Music review), Tamil – Premji Amaren

Premji gets the retro sound perfectly in Anjathey, thanks also to Hemambika’s vocals. Hemambika continues her form in Kanne, with Premji handling the quasi-retro sound that cleverly uses modern words to funny effect. TL Maharajan pulls off a Thyagaraja Bhagavathar spoof impressively in Sriranjani. The title song has a glitzy, almost-Yuvan’ish sound and Ranjit delivers it well, while Premji sings exactly like Yuvan in Appankitta, the quintessential love-failure song, with an extra dose of guitar. Vedakozhi is more Yuvan; a power kuthu marrying nadaswaram and electric guitar in a pulsating package. Premji is again impressive in his most ignored talent!
