Enai Marubadi Marubadi
Singers: Megha, Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
The album ticks off with a sweet yet invigorating melody in Vijay Prakash’s flawless voice. The simple electronically tuned beats that travel through the song work well. Tried and tested rhythm pattern, nevertheless, the pleasant chord progression and the interludes makes it sound uber cool.
Oorellaam Unnai Kandu
Singers: Bombay Jayashri, P. Unnikrishnan
This is an easily accessible track that works instantly backed by some soothing vocals from Unnikrishnan and Bombay Jayashree which blend so beautifully with Kaviperarusu Vairamuthu’s lyrics. Though the song gives us a déjà vu of yesteryears hit numbers, it still sounds fresh because of its instrumentation and orchestration. The brilliant shades of Carnatic Raaga Poornachandrika are seen in the first interlude.
Nee Sunno New Moono
Singers: Andrea Jeremiah, Mili Nair
Lyrics: Pa Vijay
A proper RNB song, the brass section in first BGM is exuberating. Predominant use of bangos in the prelude portion is noticeable. Programmed loops and strong baseline set the song while Andrea’s bombastic voice adds a flavor.
Singers: Arjun Menon, Rap – MC Vickey
Starts of way too soft and slow but takes a u turn once MC Vickey makes his presence with a short exhilarating rap portion. Thamarai doesn’t fail to impress with her unique usage of words even in such a short song. The house mix styled loops give it a trendy outlook.
Singers: Bala, Ujjayinee Roy
Lyrics: Vijaya Sagar
The song sounds quiet similar to Aathangara Orathila at first listen, thanks to Gana Bala’s vocals. Not one of those songs that work in the spur of the moment but give it some time it might surprise you.
Thaene Thaene Sendhaene
Singers: Haricharan, Pravin Saivi
A breezy number which has all the usual Harris elements. The typical usage of chorus in the composer’s composition is clearly evident in this track. Haricharan, who is on roll with back to back hit numbers, has sung so effortlessly.
Verdict: A pleasant album from Harris for Udhay and Nayanthara !
