Aaha Kaadhal Konji Pesudhe… Singers: Nandini ErikarLyrics : Na Muthukumar
The album opens with an attractive raga-rock tune. The contrast is lovely with the singer’s carnatic intonations while the backing band supports her with a bluesy groove. A SELECTED section of the melody does appear to lead towards a well-liked Ilayaraja tune ‘Entha Poovilum Vasam Undru’ but goes elsewhere. The singer Nandini brings a pleasing and authentic feminine personality to the tune together with her voice and function. The orchestration includes interludes that feature violin, accordion and flute segments, giving it a refreshing feel of an ‘early morning song’.
Kaadhal Enthan Kaadhal… Singers: Neha BhasinLyrics : Na Muthukumar
The build-up of the song is very impressive. What begins as an overly sober yet haunting melody explodes into something that you simply can’t help yourself from bobbing your head or tapping your feet to. The track’s use of the morsing and processed beats provides an ideal groove. Neha Bhasin delivers a performance with an attitude that the track demands. The song has several sing-along moments, which really is without doubt one of the indications of successful song and the nadhaswaram hook is.. well, off the hook !
Mazhai Mazhai…Singers: Karthik, ShwethaLyrics : Na Muthukumar
While the hole segment prepares you for the standard mellifluous tune about rain, be warned that the track doesn't join standard templates or song structures. Lot of changes refill the song which can require a couple of listens to totally follow and comprehend. The orchestration is pretty heavy with so much happening. There’s plenty occurring with the vocals as well, from solo segments, to exchanges to harmonies between Karthik and Shwetha who deliver excellent performances.
Padapadakkudhu Maname…Singers: Krish,BlaZeLyrics : Na Muthukumar
This one is correct up Yuvan’s alley with the R&B sort of tune. It’s the type of music the young generation involves expect of Yuvan and he doesn’t disappoint. The accordion segment is pretty nice even though it’s repetitive. Popular rapper BlaZe gets a possibility to give himself differently as he sings melody aside from fluent rap portions. Krish’s segments are almost freestyle that lives a lifetime of its own but is made to nicely compliment the tune with its crafty placement. Musically, the tune may well be commonplace for listeners who follow international pop music.
Unakkagave Uyir Vaalgiren…Singers: Yuvan Shankar RajaLyrics : Na.Muthkumar
Yuvan wins bragging right for being the primary to bring dubstep to Tamil film music. Fans of the genre though might feel that it’s toned down a notch for the regional audience who is probably not familiar to this variety of music. Yuvan drops some nice beats however the melody continues to be king and he delivers it in his own unique voice literally making the song his own. There are some nifty video-game-ish musical effects that he utilized in his other recent release Aadhi Bhagavan.
Stop The Paatu… Singers: Ramesh VinayagamLyrics : Na.Muthkumar
The song has the possible to become probably the most widely sung tune particularly for its pumping percussions and lyrical content. This is able to be the one song at the album that may be pretty direct relating to melody and approach. The chorus and the instrumental hooks are all in its usual place but there's experimentation within the interludes. Ramesh Vinayagam sings the song well with pep in addition to irony.
Verdict: Overall, the album could have been described as ‘post-modern’ by the director, but it’s an easily approachable album where each listener can pick a distinct track as their favorite. Yuvan Shankar Raja does things his own way, and does it mighty good!
