Music Video Album review: Tullel Lawkta by Zami Hauzel

Love/Patriotic, Paite, DVD Video, ZRS, Muanlal Home Studio, Skylight: With the involvement of Muanlal (Muanlal Home Studio), it’s safe to say Zami Hauzel’s Tullel Lawkta has been braided out from his preceding Nancy Biaklun’s Muikhozing which reprised and remixed the best of old Love songs: Of the eleven tracks the album has to offer, from the title track Tullel Lawkta written by (L) S. Kaizadal which has attribute of power-classic, to G. K. Gualnam’s Vangkhua Khatlou, Zansawt Leidi and V. Paukhansiam’s Lamka. The classic styles of these songs quietly are affable to Zami Hauzel’s vocal. But the reprised songs – Lianlunching’s Muikhozing, Ncy Doungel’s Khuambang kip In and Aw Ka Hinkhua and Boisy Chongloi’s Ka Lunggel – however shamed her; she couldn’t escape the embedded signatures of either Lainlunching in Muikhozing or Lynda Vaiphei in Aw Ka Hinkhua.

While Zami tried to cover the best of power-classic and Ncy Doungel’s lunglen songs; these selections alone could have proven disastrous without Muan Hangzo’s Cell Phone and Zolei and Khupkhenthang’s Sinzawl Vangkhua. Like the duet with Hatbawi in Nanglou In, Muan Hangzo (though he still haven’t been kuddo-ed by this blog for that breezy Simte Love duet) has a fresher take in composition. Both his tracks accomplished much of what this music album is capable of. It could have been confident with its selection instead of marrying every other genre.

Zami Hauzel appeared in most of the videos. The director, James Thangluai cast himself opposite Zami in Muikhozing. The video sequence has a storyline with a mature narration. Chiching in Tullel Lawkta and Rebecca in Cell Phone deserve to be mentioned. And the camera and editing have done their job right.
