1.Thillu Mullu-Naresh Iyer,Ranina Reddy
A peppy and youthy track opens this album by Harris Jayaraj (after a long time!). Right when we expect something out-of-the-box, Harris composes a tune that has already been composed by him thousands of times before in different templates. Comparisons apart, this trendy number is instantly likeable because of its cheesy lyrics, sultry vocals of Naresh Iyer and Ranina Reddy and digital sequencing of rhythm.
2.Thaen Katru-Haricharan,Shashaa Tirupathi
A remarkable Harris type melody is up next. The tune oozes with melody from all its corners. What is more striking is the laidback progression of the entire arrangement and the trance-like aura that it creates with the tune. The electronic Nadaswaram in the first interlude spices up the beauty of the number while Haricharan and Shashaa Tirupathi croon passionately. Lyrics by Thamarai are romantically heartwarming. Despite all these, the song is overwhelmingly similar to Pookkale Satru Oyivedungal from Ai movie. Nevertheless, it captivates the listener!
3.Yevanda Ivan-MC Vickey,Sharmila
This number has a global touch to it with it's screeching electric guitar sections, digital sequencing and spruced up rhythm. The overloaded segment of Rap by MC Vickey & Sharmila and the ebullient chorus do little to save the song from being a boring one. There is nothing new in the tune or the orchestration. Might do well with the visuals.
Though this number has an abundant heard before feel, it stands out due to the exuberant vocals of Karthik. It is refreshing to listen to the sweet Shalini after a long time. The entire peppiness of the number lies in the racy rhythm, bass sections and guitar strums which elevate the happy mood of the song.
5.Mutta Bajji-Gana Vinoth,Anthony Dassan,Marana Gana Viji,Ebisa
When will Harris learn to compose innovative tunes? Let it be that stereotyped folk number of every album these days, it must have some amount of experimentation to it. This kuthu number falls flat, despite an ensemble choice of Gana singers. Nothing is worthy to tell about this track. A huge disappointment!
Though Harris Jayaraj has composed after a long time, his old-wine-in-a-new-bottle attitude has never left him. All we get to listen is a banal soundtrack, devoid of tunes worthy to brag about.
