Devathai ticks off all facets of a catchy Yuvan track, with Nivas adding good value. Yuvan sings Uyire in his typical off-key way, with horrendous Tamil diction, killing an already sad song. Ippadiye is too templatized too comment, evoking many songs including Dhaavani potta. Odi odi provides musical ammunition to the standard Hari montage of […]

Hariharan aces the slow, likeable melody of Neeli rangu, with Yuvan playing the folk rhythm to very good effect. Javed Ali’s Gulabi is a lovely slow-burner! Yuvan hands him a tune that has really long phrases that Javed handles confidently, to make the tune thoroughly endearing. Ra rakumara seems to be making good use of […]

Dukki tikki obviously rehashes snatches of Variya from Pudhupettai, but what’s more intriguing is that it sounds more like a Thaman song than Yuvan’s! But he channelises the Bhatt-clan sound in his own way well in Tere hoke – thanks to Arijit too! Shweta Pandit’s reprise too is an excellent variant, orchestrated differently. Of the […]

Bang bang is obviously Raju Bhai’s intro song – high on hero worship, and barely functional. Ek do teen, despite the desperate attempt at singing by Suriya, works purely because of Yuvan’s catchy backgrounds and the simple, addictive tune. The reverse happens in Kadhal aasai – fantastic sufi-style melody, but Yuvan’s singing is atrociously bad […]

Pesadhe is vintage Yuvan – a lovely melody orchestrated with the necessary chutzpah and inventiveness, but with a more generous rock dosage than usual; fabulously sung by Hariharasudhan and Pooja! Ennodu vaa is passable kuthu, with a keen ear for the pulsating percussion. Moodu panikkul is truly interesting, recalling Jean Michel Jarre’s electronic music sensibility, […]

Kongunattu thendralukkum has a nice folk groove, but Karthik Raja and Venkat Prabhu’s vocals are jarring, to say the least, besides the rather staid tune. Yuvan’s singing is significantly worse in Tharaimele irunthae, and the tune too offers nothing new, regurgitating many other Yuvan songs. Thakkaalikku has a fantastic folk rhythm to back the pleasant […]

Nenjukkulla nee is an easy winner, thanks to the rollicking rhythm, clubbed with infectious vocals. Low aana life is a consistently groovy ode to Sunny Leone, complete with a fantastic kuthu twist mid-way, delivered with requisite attitude by Anirudh and Andrea. Lalithanand’s hilarious lyrics and Gana Bala’s rendition helps Kelunganne’s qawali-gana mix very well, but, […]

Adadada arrambame is loaded with festive exuberance and uses alternating percussions to good effect. En fuse pochu sounds like something Yuvan usually reserves for Simbu, right up to the corny lyrics and is just passable. Hare rama‘s heady sound is largely due to Tanvi and Shaktisree’s lovely vocals and catchy rhythm, while the supposed ode […]

The title song is full of curiously interesting sounds topped by the whistle-like flute usage; the hip-hop mix Yuvan creates with Tanvi, Bhavatharini and Vilasini is equally intriguing… and alluring! The hip-hop mix in Nahnh na nah works even better – familiar Yuvan-style catchiness all the way, again with some interesting choice of instruments/sounds! Its […]

Aaja aaja‘s retro pop sound is minimal but enticing. Haricharan and Priya Himesh do a neat job and Yuvan layers it with cool sounds! Ranjit aces Kai pesi en kooda, with Yuvan delivering a lovely tune and also holding forth in the interludes confidently! Unfortunately, the Raagangal pathinaaru, a gorgeous tune originally, despite having superb […]
