GV Prakash commenced his musical journey with a folk based musical genre in ‘Veyil’ following which after many years; he returned back experimenting with it again in National award winning film ‘Aadukalam’. Teaming up with Karthi for the third time, he has now tried something completely folk in ‘Komban’. The album has five songs and we bring you the exclusive music review of this Komban-Lakshmi Menon starrer directed by Muthaiah and produced by Studio Green K.E. Gnanavel Raja.
V.M. Mahalingam and Ananthu
It’s a festival song in the rural backdrops and there is a plethora of dance and celebration in it What turns more impressive about the song is the rendition panache of V.M. Mahalingam and Ananthu for they consistently deliver the lines with more energy. There are lots of dance sequences in this track and will be surely enjoyed by the rural audiences.
GV Prakash and Shreya Ghoshal
Shreya Ghoshal remains too synonymous for her sweet melodic voice and this song carries her best persona in usual paradigms. GV Prakash has his portions embellished in the midst of hers cherubic delivery. The song speaks about the erotic and loveable chemistry between a newlywed couple in the native lands with more poignance.
Vel Murugan and Maalavika Sundar
The song captivates your memories for the first time you hear it and you will not stop listening to this track. A special surprise from GV Prakash who hasn’t delivered a single Chartbuster in the recent times and this one is a fabulous one. Laced with best music, lyrics and wonderful rendition by Vel Murugan and Maalavika Sundar, the track is sure to top the charts in a short span of time.
The song takes the emotional route and offers a touching impact to the listeners’ heart. Moreover, the inclusion of a singer like Madhu Balakrishnan adds additional emotions through his style of vocalisation and the montage visuals should bring forth more essence into it.
A Celebration (Komban Theme)
This would let the frontbenchers in the theatres, especially the ones across the suburban and rural areas to have their blast with the dance and musical trumpets in the style of their nativity.
On the whole, ‘Komban’ has a touch of complete folk genre, which keeps us enchanted in many places. Appappa and Karuppu Nerathazhagi happen to be the instant hits and rest of the numbers would surely catch up our attention brewing up with the visuals.
Verdict: Moderately better than GV’s previous albums.
