The profusion of keys and violin that starts Nee illai endraal paves way to the soft melody so very well, even as Haricharan and Vandana Srinivasan converse in perfect sync. Sathya Prakash holds Ithu pol together with his splendid singing, though the tune is largely flat, with a been-there melodic sound. The soundtrack’s best is the very unplugged’ish melody, Mannippaaya, sung wonderfully by the film’s heroine, Aparna Balamurali, and Udhay Kannan. Andhi saayura neram is pedestrian, though, despite the functionally catchy Kokoko hook. Composer Sundaramurthy KS does considerably better in 8 Thottakkal, when compared to his average debut in Avam.
