Following some hit albums in the last year, Santhosh Narayanan gets his new outing ‘Server Sundaram’ unveiled now. The film starring Santhanam and Vaibhavi in lead roles is directed by Anand Balki, which is based on catering and food.

Vocal: Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Vivek

The song is already familiar as it was released as the single track before few weeks. It’s a regular kind of rendition and composing by Santhosh Narayanan, which is passable in places. Maybe, with the visuals and choreography, the song might have its realms to impress us.

Vocals: Ananthu, Vijaynarain, Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Vivek

Nirkadhey has a unique touch of music from Santhosh Narayanan, which happens to be a different dimension from rest of the numbers. The usual instrumentals that we happen to hear in other tracks are prevalent here as well, which includes Mridangam, violin and percussions. Although Ananthu, Vijay Narain and Santhosh Narayanan have tried giving their best, the song remains to be a mediocre and doesn’t hit your senses instantly.

Kannaal Modhathey
Vocal: Sid Sriram
Lyrics: Muthamizh

Usually Santhosh Narayanan prefers bringing up melodies that are limited to medium pitch, but here he surprises bringing in a different attempt. The high pitched intonations of Sid Sriram are extraordinarily appealing, which takes through the most attention with the high pitched portions. Sid Sriram is always special with melodies that especially touch the top pinnacle of vocalization and the lines by Muthamil are very well grasped to his voice.

Gama Gama Samayal
Vocals: Anthony Daasan, Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Vivek

Have you ever come across a Gaana number that is based on food? Of course, Ghazals and Gaana have never spoke about food, maybe about wine. Santhosh Narayanan and Anthony Daasan have always been an epitome of best Gaana and their erstwhile collaborations have proved it so much. Apparently, over here, although the tempo is slow paced, it gets vitality through their style of rendition. The lines by Vivek that is yet again based on food comes up with icing the cake factor.

Unavey Marundhu
Vocals: Ranjan - Gayathri
Lyrics: Vivek

As the album comes to an end, it brims up with a classical touch that has some fusion like elements too. The songs involving food over the times have always appealed to the tastes of everyone and this one is sure to have its realms without any ignorance. Ranjan-Gayathri make an impressive show with the rendition. The usage of guitars, which happens to be the favourite instrumental of Santhosh Narayanan gains impeccable attention that is embellished by Mridangam.

As on whole, the songs by Santhosh Narayanan are just at the average phase and he definitely has to work a better way to bounce back at least have half the mark of Kabali. The songs might get to impress us with the visuals, but for now, it’s a mediocre one.

Verdict : Not really impressive as the previous albums of Santhosh Narayanan.
