A complete single and a teaser sample featuring music by SS Thaman are out today. Two musical bits can’t be as diverse as these and they, in turn, highlight the versatility of the music director.
Mr. Majnu’s musical glimpse might appear a bit too perfunctory for SS Thaman, but it is the emotional song “Peniviti” from Aravindha Sametha that showcases his capabilities and range as a composer. The song is intense, situation and passionate and yet SS Thaman not only delivers, but he also makes it a must-listen kind.
“Peniviti” is also a far cry from the first single “Anaganaganaga” that came out earlier from Aravindha Sametha. It was a peppy modern song with neatly infused classical strains. Compare this to Mr. Majnu’s music, and one would understand the wide variety that given to the listener.
SS Thaman is having a great year with the Bhaagamathie earning him laurels for the background score. It was followed by Tholi Prema’s unanimous appreciation musically. The album of Chal Mohan Ranga too was a special one with some lovely melodies in class and mass style. There are a few other albums as well where the movies were panned but not the music. Here’s wishing the music director for more success ahead.
