Take Me Higher
Mysterious, yet beguiling soundtrack
Though Mellisai lacks the hit quotient, it is a mysterious soundtrack with its own share of orchestral innovation. Sam CS must be lauded for the controlled use of his instruments, without going over the top looking for glory. Give it some time to sink in, and you will start liking this one.
Cast: Vijay Sethupathi, Gayathrie
Music: Sam CS
Direction: Ranjit Jeyakodi
Label: Think Music
Vellai Kanavu: Singers – Hariharan, Harini
Mellisai begins with this mellifluous melody which starts off with a lovely flute setup and then escalates into the endearing vocals of Hariharan and Harini. The light strings which hover all over the song bring in a lovely feel. Our PICK!
Lola: Singers – Maria Kavitha Thomas
A stylish rendition from Maria Kavitha Thomas is the saviour of this track which has a heavy deja-vu feel attached to it. Nevertheless, it could click with glossy visuals. There is another version of the same track sung by Andrea, which is marginally better.
Parakkiren Naan: Singers – Srinivas, Maria Kavitha Thomas
A minimalistic number with a mysterious, eerie feel stitched to it. Srinivas always adds a lot of power to his songs, the end result is no different here.
Mazhaikulle: Singers – Haricharan, Shreya Ghoshal
Sam CS makes the right pick in Haricharan and Shreya Ghoshal for this track, as the duo bring their best to the fore. The recurring violin which plays in the background is a haunt. Another PICK!
Take Me Higher: Singers – Suchith Suresan, JK, Maria Kavitha Thomas
An English version of Parakkiren Naan which is in fact pulled down by the wannabe accent, making it a middling number.
An instrumental bit which does have a cunning feel embedded. Just like the teaser, it is tough to guess the genre of this film with the help of the songs too.
