Tenaliraman music review

Staring : Vadivelu, Meenakshi Dixit

Director : Yuvaraj Dhayalan

Music : D. Imman

Production : AGS Entertainment

Tenali Raman marks the re-entry of the vivacious Vadivelu back on the big screen. After a hiatus, this film has the comedian in a dual role, along with Meenakshi Dixit and an array of supporting artists. D.Imman has scored the music for the film, time to assess his tunes for this one.

Aanazhagu : Singer - Shreya Ghoshal, Lyrics - Viveka ( CINEMALEAD's PICK )

With the charming voice of Shreya Ghoshal, Aanazhagu is a melodious number sung towards a handsome individual. The use of hiccup sounds turns out to be a unique idea from Imman, which works in favor of the song. The composer makes use of classical instruments like the tabla, working well with Viveka's lyrics.

Aey Vaayadi : Singer - Krishnaraj, Lyrics - Viveka

Krishnaraj takes the mic for this quick number with the use of Imman's template beat. Just an average song to listen to, with nothing special about it.

Udal Vangalayo Udal : Singer - Andrea, Lyrics - Viveka

Probably an item number in the film, this is a solo track with intuitions from the Mid-East. More of a belly dance jingle.

Nenje Nenje : Singer - Hariharasudhan, Lyrics - Viveka

With engrossing lyrics from Viveka, Hariharasudhan provides his fitting voice to Nenje Nenje, which is an inspirational song with minimalistic instrumentation from Imman. One of the saviors of the album.

Rampapa Rampapa : Singer - Mukesh, Lyrics - Pulamai Pithan

Attempting to carve out a fun filled track to be the intro song for Vadivelu, Imman ropes in Mukesh to sing out Rampapa Rampapa. The album ends on a low as this song doesn't ebb the flow of the songs which were already on the wane.

Not an ounce of what one expects from D.Imman is felt in the album, making it a banal listen towards the end. Hopes are now pinned on the colorful visuals which might take the album to the audience with a positive effect.

Verdict : A bromidic album from D.Imman this time.
