Maari (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

Maari thara local places enormously misplaced trust in the manic, folded-tongue kuthu rhythm and forgets bothering with the tune. Thappa dhaan has a half-decent, predictable tune and again depends inordinately on the kuthu rhythm. However, Bagulu odayum gets its priorities right – it shuns any dependence on the tune and makes a stupendous mix of marana kuthu and an intriguing violin layer! The soundtrack’s best are Don’u Don’u, a captivating call-and-response duet featuring Anirudh and Alisha Thomas, and Oru vidha aasai, with a wonderfully articulated 80s swagger and Vineeth Sreenivasan in blistering form. So-So Maari, but for these two songs.
