Athiradi is more posturing than a cohesive song, though that retro-style interlude (Vanmurai pazhi) is a nifty touch. Ditto with Yaar ivan – less of a ‘song’ and more background’ish. Mudhal murai is good at places – the anupallavi is really melodious and that nadaswaram-phrase is smart work by Yuvan, but something seems off, overall. […]

Vaanam dhaane has a nice edgy tune that almost sounds like a warning, complete with a mysterious vaudevillian sound. Mazhai megam harks back to Yuvan’s early days, with its flowing melody, though Yuvan’s insistence on singing it befits the film’s horror theme. The soundtrack’s best is Uyirile uyirile, an almost-Raja style melody—the rhythm and the […]

The title song is effortless Yuvan at his best – addictively cool EDM mix! Itemkaaran is no different, with its insanely catchy hook and a steadily raucous kuthu rhythm, delivered with the perfect verve by Ranjith and Anita! Idhayathai oru nodi joins the long list of Yuvan songs that should have been sung by a […]

Despite the digital processing, Revanth is great form in the energetic and steadily rhythmic Adhilekka. O kshanam could easily pass off for a Mani Sharma melody! Yuvan’s tune is gorgeous and his punchy rhythm only makes it better, though Aishwarya and Deepak’s singing seems middling. M.L.R.Karthikeyan’s singing is top notch in Aakaasam, even as the […]

The title song makes up in energy what it fails to do with nativity despite singing about ‘Gowdru’ hotel! Ondhe jeevana is good old Yuvan! The template is all there to hear and enjoy; catchy and highly listenable. Kshanvu kooda is no different – vintage Yuvan dance number that Sanjana Kalmanje aces, barring the occasional […]

After STR’s mental prelude rant, the Trend Song thankfully moves to a frenetic EDM package. Rottula vandi oodudhu faces the EDM heat too, layered with some foot-tapping kuthu. Simbu’s deep lyrics introspect on the prospects of a directionally challenged human’s life. And, poor Ilayaraja. In Ratham en ratham, STR outdoes Yuvan in the singing department. […]

Despite Mukesh’s enthusiastic signing and the ebullient percussion, Uchimalai is perfunctory. But in Ilaratham soodera, Yuvan shows how to do even the perfunctory in a convincing manner! Otha paarvayil starts with a haunting prelude but goes downhill as soon as Yuvan starts to indulge in something akin to singing. Even Srimathumitha seems out of sorts. […]

Sooda oru sooriyan has a heady percussion to go for it and the hook is catchy too, but it doesn’t press further. Paarai mele is that kind of song which deserved a better singer, one who can differentiate between ‘l’ and ‘L’ in Tamil, and can sing in tune, unlike Yuvan. His tune is fantastic, […]

Yaaro ucchikilai meley is vintage Yuvan; lilting rhythm and a pleasant melody. Unn badhil vendi‘s tune seems retrofitted on Na.Muthukumar’s poetry, and Unnai‘s verses seem even more melody-agnostic, going ‘Nee sirithu mayakkum muganool padangalukku, en aanmaavilirundhu araivari eduthu ezhudhinaal podhum, nee Like seivaai‘, resulting in an uncomfortably perfunctory tune. Kaadhal oru kattukkadhai rides largely on […]

Kannungala chellangala is truly intriguing, and captivating! It also has horrendous vocals by Yuvan, besides Selvaraghavan’s inventive lines like ‘Setha naai mela thaan ethana lorry thaan’. Maalai varum has a likeable rock ballad-style melody, with that catchy ‘Ramsay’ call-out. But, it also has stomach-churningly bad singing by Dhanush and Yuvan. Yuvan offers a frenetic drum-and-bass […]
