Music review: Remo - Young and bubbly

Tuesday, 6 September 2016
M Bharat Kumar

Music composer Anirudh and actor Sivakarthikeyan share an excellent rapport. They have teamed up in the past to render many musical hits. Now comes 'Remo' from their kitty.

The album has seven songs that includes a song rendered by music director Santosh Narayanan. A typical Anirudhisque, the album is racy with quirky lyrics - romantic and racy.

The movie is written and directed by debutant Bakkiyaraj Kannan.

A rom-com, the film has Keerthy Suresh playing the heroine. Veteran director K S Ravikumar, Saranya Ponvannan, Rajendran, Aadukalam Naren are in supporting roles. Sri Divya in doing a cameo.


'Meesa Beauty'

(Anirudh, Richard)

The song describes a beautiful nurse, one of the roles that Sivakarthikeyan plays in the movie. Richard and Anirudh come together for this number with some comical lyrics by Vivek. The rap interludes are catchy.

'Tamil Selvi'

(Nakash Aziz)

Penned by filmmaker Vignesh Sivan, the song with a mix of electro, bass and bouncy beats sounds interesting. Nakash Aziz’s soft rendition and Anirudh's voice in chorus singing 'Vaadi En Tamilselvi' makes it one of the best from him.


(Santhosh Narayanan)

Perhaps the pick of the album. Written by Ku Karthik, it is sung by music composer Santhosh Narayanan with a open throat voice reminding one of 'Gana' Bala songs. It is no kuthu song. But one that makes you dance immediately.   


(Arjun Kanungo, Srinidhi, Anirudh)

One more number penned by Vignesh Sivan in the album, 'Sirikkathey' is a a soft one unlike Anirudh's routine. A romantic song, it deserves a special mention for Arjun Kanungo and Srinidhi rendering it with a romantic feel. The harmony and arrangements of Anirudh add shine to the song.



Anirudh at his best. His voice does the magic. Targetted at youngsters with some funny lyrics by Vignesh Sivan, 'Senjitaley' is more of a fusion between East and West. The chorus and interludes are good to listen to.

'Remo Ne Kadhalan'


The title track, which is crooned by Anirudh again, is fast song which perhaps speaks about the theme of the movie. When watched on screen, the song is sure to make an impact with the audience.
