Life Machan Machan
‘Life Machan Machan’ starts with Mukesh channelling his inner TMS during the prelude. The arrangements echo a ‘wedding band’ type song with a mix of philosophical lyrics & brass dominated instrumentation thrown in. Sounds the least impressive amongst the three that we've got here.
Singer: Gana Bala
Groovy Funk! We see Gana Bala in his true form here, almost back to his ‘Ora Kannala’ glory days. There is an impressive violin work in the interludes. The tune is pretty easy to get into us & there are no ear jarring arrangements to hamper the enjoyment while listening. Fun listen!
Singer: Vaikom Vijayalakshmi
‘Mazhai Ingillaiye’ is a near classical approach in a mainstream song after ages. Vaikom Vijayalakshmi, who we usually associate with fast paced folk numbers is a revelation here. Impressive arrangements like gatam, violins & mridhangams enhance the vibe of the song.
On the whole, the soundtrack of ‘Ammani’ impresses owing to the innovative blend of tracks that it has. Although one would have hoped to have more tracks in the soundtrack, these three tracks could sit well with the movie.
Picks from the album: Mazhai Ingillaiye, Roattora Paadhaiyile
