Despite the immense love for Meher Ramesh in all sorts of wrong ways, his films so far have had good music and the director deserves a credit for that much for sure.
Coming to Shadow the director extracts interesting bits of music from music director SS Thaman. Almost all the songs have a prominent disco/club vibe to them with typical Thaman techno beats attached to it.
The title track and â€œNaughty Girlâ€ stands out. Among the rest there are interesting bits like the female vocals in â€œPilla Manchi Bando Basthuâ€, interludes of â€œGola Golaâ€. â€œAythalakkaâ€ is a routine number with only the funny female mid section lyrics involving lines of popular nursery rhymes standing out. â€œRevenge of the Shadowâ€™ is okay.
On the whole the album is a disappointment. It lacks the consistency and is mildly engaging due to interesting bits.
Our picks- Shadow, Naughty Girl
