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 […]

Neee is a superb melody that builds on the EDM sound really well. Yuvan’s singing leaves a LOT to be desired, but he makes up for it in other departments. His abysmal singing almost mauls Naan ini! It’s orchestrated brilliantly and is a tune that deserved a better singer to accompany Chinmayi. Ennulae has that […]

Soppana Sundari spins around Goundamani’s iconic Karagattakaran dialog, but the enthusiasm seems rather forced. The remix is a decidedly better, with punchy electronic sounds. The Boys Are Back is all swagger and electronica, with an easily hummable hook. House Party is no different – ‘homely’ techno-TASMAC song, with addictive hooks and Senthil Dass’s enthu vocals. […]

Endha pakkam is good old Yuvan, exactly an year later! Immersive melody over a simple, captivating rhythm, and superbly sung by Chinmayi and Rahul Nambiar, with a particularly lovely humming-based bridge connecting the anupallavi and pallavi. Aandipatti‘s Laxmikant-Pyarelal sound is an awkward surprise, while Poi vaada‘s early-Rahman sound is sedate and well sung by Srimathumita. […]

Parapara‘s upbeat sound, cool vocal effects and vocal interplay between Vijay Yesudas and Ranjith lift the song. Konjalaai is that typical Yuvan melody – a resonant, engrossing tune with funky orchestration incorporating dubstep. Kakkaponnu, in contrast, has more of the alluring sound, but is saddled with a less interesting tune. Innum enna is the song […]

Therikkudhu masss is a curious melange; it has likeable pieces like the thavil base being used in two different backdrops, but as a whole, it’s bewildering. Premgi’s remix has its work cut-out and delivers a pulsating dance track. Naan aval illai‘s base melody is likeable enough, but its build-up is ho-hum, while Poochandi‘s street-smart funk […]
