Anwar (Malayalam)

Finally, the most awaited songs of Shreya have released. Yes, I am talking about Anwar. The movie which was already making waves among Shreya fans and the great news is that, its Malayalam this time.


Shreya has sung two songs in the movie. One sung by four singers (though fully sung by Shreya, others singers are chorus singers) and the other one is a duet with Naresh Iyer. Music has been composed by Gopi Sundar who also composed Vennilave which still is a favorite among her fans, and will always stay.


Lets talk about "Kizhakku Pookkum". It s been sung by Shreya, Sabbari Brothers, Navin Iyer & Raqueeb Alam. It runs for 5 minutes 7 seconds. The song is a perfect blend of Qawalli and Carnatic music. The song starts with a harmony by a chorus singer followed by a background music played on harmonium. Shreya starts with the song beautifully with clappings supporting her at the background. Since its a qawalli, so you might be aware which beats this song would be having. Shreya's vocals completely melts in your heart. The composition is so rich and fresh. The chorus singing "Khalbila Thee" is an major phase of the song. The song is supported by amazing instruments like harmonium, dholak, tabla, sarangi, flute, etc. The interludes are composed fantastically by Gopi Sundar. The antaras are well composed suiting the theme of the song. I don't know what adjectives should I use to praise the singing of Shreya here. Sabbari Bros have done an awesome job in the song as well. The amazing sargam in the second interlude adds the best finishing touch to the song. I am sure the song will become a rage all over, specially down Kerala. Shreya has used different harkats.I am not surprised as she is the queen of expressions. I won't be surprised if I see Shreya winning a Filmfare for this one.


Next song is titled "Kanninima Neele" which is a duet by Shreya Ghoshal & Naresh Iyer.It runs for 3 minutes 53 seconds. It starts with a beautiful piece played on matka (which is widely used in Carnatic Music). It can even replace dholak in many songs. Shreya starts with the song first and I liked the song in first hearing itself. Everything is very impressive about the song. I really liked the way Shreya sings her first line which doesn't have the space to breathe. Its a very unique romantic song and again, one of the best Malayalam songs of Shreya. Naresh has given good company to her in the second antara. So far, all Malayalam songs of Shreya have been fabulous. Hope we'll get to hear more Malayalam songs by Shreya in near future.

Hellow Nishant :)

I heard "Kizhakku Pookkum" In one word it's Brilliant, I fell in love with it, amazing composed and singed by our Goddess. This song gets the best out of Shreya. Listening again and again to it. I love Qawali songs. This is a treat to my ears :)

"Kanninima" is an impressive song, like the tunes and the instruments are choosen very well. Loved the Turkish saz and the buka. Very rithmic. Listen to the control of Shreya's voice, amazing. I think I started loving Malayam songs too :)
This is how a music should be presented. Hats off to the whole musical team.
