6 is a thriller that will feature its hero Shaam in supposedly 6 different avatars in the film. The movie also stars Poonam Kaur and Archana. This V.Z. Dhorai directorial venture is produced by Najimudeen Majid and has Srikanth Deva as its music director.

Boy Friend Girl Friend
Singers: Sathyan
Lyrics: VZ Dhorai

For the most part, the song is quite ear-friendly and lively, but its English talk portions and the overdose of “woahs” and “yeahs” could have been avoided. Sathyan drives the tune with a fine vocal performance and Srikanth Deva treats it as a light hearted pop-rock tune.

Aagayam Boomikellam
Singers: Sathyan, Soundarya
Lyrics: VZ Dhorai

What stands out in the track is Srikanth Deva’s penchant for simple melodies that get instantly registered. The song may carry familiar strains of a track from the recent past; still it makes for pleasant listening, thanks to good singing from Sathyan and Soundarya.

Unnai Naan Velvatha
Singers: Nancy Vincent, Roopa
Lyrics: VZ Dhorai

This is an old fashioned item number that conforms to all the known stereotypes. Roopa & Nancy Vincent’s exchanges can be unsettling at one stage. This sensual tune comes to a close on a high, but one feels it’s a tad bit too late.

Bigulu Bigulu
Singers: Soundarya, VZ Dhorai
Lyrics: VZ Dhorai

Srikanth Deva is on his home turf in this track. A standard kuthu song but there is a difference in presentation, with the use of Telugu along with the Tamil verses. The film’s director, VZ Dhorai lends his voice to this song that is fairly short in duration and comes to a quick close.

Singers: Haricharan
Lyrics: VZ Dhorai

A dark and eerie tune that’s held up by a strong drumline and an electronic groove. Haricharan sings powerfully in a high range. Again the music director gives a lot of emphasis on the vocal melodies without trying to fill the song to the top with orchestration activity.

Verdict: Barring one song, the album has Srikanth Deva stepping out of his comfort zone and showing his capabilities at something different.
