1. kalloori paadam: Shankar
footsteps of A.R. Rahman who recycles his own tunes in other
languages, Yuvan has recycled this tune in the telugu version of “Sethu”.
Shankar Mahadevan’s voice bubbles with the sprit and enthusiasm of
a teen aged college goer. The song is not bad but for the
colloquial lyrics of Agathiyan which don’t fit with the tune and
spoil the whole song.
2. Iru kangal sollum: Balaram
& Gopika Poornima
Pick of the
album being a perfect melodious song. Balaram should improve his
tamil pronunciation. Gopika Poornima fairs well in her debut song
itself. This song is going to be a chart buster for sure. Quoting
the lines of playback singer P.B.Srinivas, “ In MUSIC, “M” stands
for melody and if there is no “M” it’ll make “U Sick”. Yuvan has
given such a beautiful melody keeping those lines in mind I
3. Bombay city: Pavithra
begins with foot tapping rhythm but fails pathetically, thanks to
the rubbish lyrics with a lot of english words.Pavithra seems to
be a promising playback singer in the future as her voice is
malleable and works wonders going to various pitches.
4. Thozhi thozhaa: Karthik
The new whizkid has once again succeeded in capturing the fan’s hearts.
Initial impression on hearing the song may not be impressive. But
it’s a song set in different style where Karthik’s charming voice
brings out all the pains and emotional clashes in love. Those who
are in love will have to love this song.
5. Salsa- Theme music
This kind of
Salsa music is new to tamil film music and Yuvan should be
appreciated for his innovative effort.
6. Mullai poo: S.P.B.Charan,
Yugendran, Venkat prabu
Blood line of
Veteran singers namely S.P.B., Malaysia Vasudevan and Gangai
Amaran have sung this song in music of one of the Maestro’s
masterpieces (Yuvan). The opening music of the song resembles that
of “Manja kaatu maina”. Yuvan should have avoided this. But this
song is really soothing with Naveen’s flute flowing through out
7. Sithanna vaasal: S.P.B.
dance number with refreshing beats. S.P.B still sound very young
and fresh. Youngsters will surely love this song and is going to
be a sure hit. Lyrics are also good and Sujatha as usual sings the
song with her ice-cream voice.
8. Vidinchaaka kalyanam :
Chitra Sivaraman and Yuvan combination was a great
hit in Thulluvatho Ilamai. But here they have failed to keep up
the magic, thanks to the poor lyrics. Yuvan should have
concentrated well as some beats remind us of a song from the film
So far all the films of Agathian
like “kaadhal koattai”, “kaadhal kavithai” had very impressive
and super hit songs. Here too he has shown his consistency in
selecting the tunes. But his lyrics have spoiled the songs. The
producer of this film, Mr. Panchu Arunachalam being a great lyricist
could have been more critical of the lyrics.
This album has a variety with
melodious songs, peppy numbers, folk and theme music to satisfy
people of all age group and tastes. Yuvan has proved once again
that he’s a chip off the old block. This album is sure to withstand
among the waves created by BABA in the audio market owing to the
young voices and music.
