Soundtrack Review : Onayum Aatukuttiyum

Mysskin’s ventures always ensure that the director and his films stand out from the crowd. With the soundtrack of Onayum Aatukuttiyum Mysskin has achieved that distinction yet again. Firstly for employing the legendary Ilayaraja’s services only for composing the background score and secondly for making the entire score available for free consumption online on his home banner’s website . Here is the review of the soundtrack in a nutshell.

The ten tracks on this album rest heavily on violins, as a solo instrument and as a collective assault of heavy emotions. Interestingly there is no room for any vocal duties, not even dramatic chorus sections, on any of the tracks. The album is definitively Western Classical in style and most of the compositions are short bursts of sentiments.

Not only do these short instrumentals serve as motifs but they also set the listener up for the beautiful longer pieces like ‘A Fairytale’, which is replete with excellent flute and violin performances, and ‘Walking Through Life And Death’ which lives up to its name by transgressing seamlessly from one mood to another. Mysskin’s visuals are known to be intense and this collection of music is certain to elevate it to greater heights.
