The theme and title are already mammoth. And now, everything else associated with 'Kumki' too seems to be big. The audio album of the movie, which was launched at a function attended by Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, has a whopping 10 songs (seven songs and three karoke versions).
The Prabhu Solmon-Imman combo, which filled the air with their musical waves in 'Mynaa', has struck it rich in 'Kumki' too. One listen to the songs give a feel of taking a trip into the jungle.
Benny Dayal, D Imman
An energetic beginning to the album. The song crooned by Benny Dayal and Imman talks about the lifestyle of a set of people who take care of elephants. It also introduces the lead players to the audience.
The music composer doubles it up as the solo singer of this song, and he is accompanied well by guitar. What starts with a mild humming gains momentum as its progresses and impresses the listener.
Haricharan has chipped in with all bubbliness in this song, which celebrates the joy of falling and staying in love. Imman's composition and orchestration are the USP.
Sollitaley Ava Kaathala
K J Ranjith, Shreya Goshal
Though the beginning reminds one 'Mynaa Mynaa Nenjukkula...', the song takes a different route as it progresses. A feel-good song with full of positive energy, this one is sure to stay in the minds of melody lovers for a long time.
A fast paced song, apparently to fill the 'kuthu' appetite of the audience. Magizhini Manimaran's voice and Imman's composition blend well. The 'Soi Soi' words are catchy.
Nee Yeppo Pulla
A song that carries a bunch of questions that the protagonist wants to ask his ladylove. Imman has come out with some racy beats which gets value addition with Alphons Joseph's rendition.
A Lady And the Violin
Aditi Paul, Karthik (Violin)
'Ayyayo Ananthamey...' which already impressed us is back, this time in a female voice. But for some slight changes, the original version is almost retained. Violin inputs are impressive.
Besides these seven songs, there are karoke versions for 'Sollitaley...', 'Ayyayo Ananthamey...' and 'Onnum Puriyala...' All the 10 numbers make 'Kumki' a jumbo album.
