High On Love should ideally be High on Yuvan! The entrancing melody is vintage Yuvan, with a deeply engaging orchestration and Sid Sriram’s stupendous vocals. Dope Track is equally brilliant. The melody is affecting, and even Yuvan’s poor diction and off-track singing seem pardonable given the wonderfully pulsating music. Hold Me Now is a hattrick! […]

Yuvan’s first interlude in Dhooramaai is quite literally like soaking into the beauty of a cool, green mountain, as the music simply flows. Vijay Yesudas adds to the effect with his exquisite singing too, while Vairamuthu’s lyrics imaginatively allude to the maternal instincts, in both the anupallavi (“Inge thondrum siriya malai, iyarkkai thaayin periya mulai, […]

Simbu seems particularly in great form with his exaggerated singing in Mr.X, amidst the flashy EDM that Yuvan unleashes! Pattukutty Neethan is Yuvan at his vintage best! The melody is incredible, the music is almost hypnotic, and the singing… well, abysmal, courtesy Yuvan himself! Kaadhal Gaana is Yuvan letting V.M. Mahalingam belt out a superb […]

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. […]
