AAA Trend song 
Singer: T R Silambarasan
Lyricist: STR

The Trend song which has been sung by Simbu starts off as a melancholy (pain of love) but turns out to be a fast paced high energy number with a transition from ‘Vaazhnaal Muzhuka to Iniki Nightu Mattum Nee’.There comes Yuvan’s bgm and EDM to add spice to STR’s own lyrics. It has tunes from the previous collaborations of Yuvan and STR like Manmadhan and Yevan di Unna Pethan from Vaanam playing in the backdrop, that too an updated auto-tuned version of these old numbers. An enjoyable song that sets a trend as the name suggests.


Rottula Vandi Oodudhu
Singer: Maestro Ilayaraja
Lyricist: STR

Rottula Vandi Oodudhu has been sung by the maestro Ilayaraja himself. It is a folk based western number. Ilayaraja’s voice is apt for the gana or folkish style. Yuvan once again banks on his electronic background score to give a fairly different flavour to this song crooned by Ilayaraja. Lyrics by STR are simple, catchy and hummable. It has some good meaning to it too and last minute of the song is a proper fusion of EDM and folk beats.


Ratham En Ratham
Singer: STR
Lyricist: Vairamuthu

Ratham En Ratham is that song addressed to the people. It is a positive sounding folk based song that carries some good energy with it. It has the motivational feel to it. Sung by STR himself, it has lyrics by Vairamuthu. Simbu has given soul into the singing just as he always does. The song also has the friendship tag attached to it and also about Simbu’s journey with ups and downs with support from his fans throughout.


Ashwin Thatha Theme Song 

The stylish Ashwin Thatha has been given a nice western style theme music with a twist. It sounds like the ‘Naan Unna Love Panraen’ song and has both the instruments as well as the EDM and electronic beats. Strings and flute add the nativity to the latter half of this Ashwin Thatha theme song. A nice blend of the two genres.


Madurai Micheal Theme song

The Madurai Micheal theme song is handcrafted for Simbu’s mass image. It has some great use of drums, minimal synth, guitars and a perfect transition from a mass folk based theme to an emotion filled one. It is captivating and with STR’s screen presence, this will serve as a goosebumps theme music for the high moments of the film.


Retro Romance Theme song


The retro romance theme song as the name suggests is of the retro style in a carnatic folk flavour. The Nadhaswaram and Thavils flow in followed by a slow paced catchy folk beat. Yuvan scores high with this flashback based theme music that has a nice interlude. It has a unique usage of Santoor and Accordian.

Verdict: Yuvan and Simbu’s rocking musical combination strikes again with a blend of western and folk to satisfy the masses!


3 ( 2.75 / 5.0 )
