Jassie Gift is the one music director who had made a deep impact in Malayalam Cinema Music. Eventhough he couldn't cash on the greatest ever phenomenal opening for a music director that he received through 'Four the people', he survived as a more famous singer in the South Indian cinema delivering continuous hits with his aesthetically different voice.
The selection of bad movies and improper PR work is cited as the reasons for the non propagation of Jassie phenomena, but not his quality of music. Creating good music for films like Ennittum, Rain Rain Come Again, December ....which had its lean performance in box office couldn't pay Jassie any dividends as a music director, eventhough the songs continued in the charts for some time.
Having learned much of Malyalam cinema, Jassie is now into his second run as a music director with the magnum opus, 'Balram Vs Taradas'. Eventhough the film is an action thriller and the music section claims only two songs, Jaasie has infused some genuinely in the creations. Sung by Yesudas, Jassie Gift, Anwar, Afsal and Rimi Tomi the songs are gracefullly penned by Kaithapram.
1. Neelathadakangalo........This is the song which announces the comeback of Jassie to the right platform. A soft melody in the likes of Raveendram, Dr.K.J. Yesudas has finessely rendered this solo in exeuberance. The orchestration of the song also stands apart from the normal Jassie stuf with soft take overs and minimal use of heavy equipments like his super hit 'Snehathumpi'. The lyrics is also well crafted to feel the make of a love song. The song is sure to climb the chart tops.
2 Matthaapoo.... This is a group song sung in parts by Jassie Gift, Afsal, Anwar and Rimi Tomi. This is a festive song with right mix of vocals and great beats of north . The singers has infused the energy for this foot tapping number set to heavy orchestration. It is very enthusiastic to hear refreshing voice of Jassie again after a gap in Malayalam. The song is a dance number - another sure hit.
Anyway, Jassie is back to safe track creating some music to the need of the Kerala masses. The album doesn't shows patches of his anglican rap or reggae styles, and is soothing to hear.
Good show, Jassie.
