Thillu Mullu
Singers: Naresh Iyer, Ranina Reddy
Lyrics: V Padmavathy, Sirkali Sirpi, Gana Vinoth

An urbane and trendy track paves the beginnings of this album with fluid ease. This is a cakewalk for a superior singer like Naresh Iyer and Ranina Reddy follows him with her stylish singing. There is little scope for experimentation as most of the orchestration is digitized with loops and predictable rhythm progression.

Thaen Katru
Singers: Haricharan, Shashaa Tirupati
Lyrics: Thamarai

A typical Harris Jayaraj melody arrives next with classy vocals of Haricharan and Shashaa Tirupati. The mild trance strokes and neat treble is effectively coupled with guitar strums. The piano chord touches set the ideal mood perfectly and paving for a relaxing ambience. The usage of electronic nadaswaram in the interlude is another good move by the composer. However, it has irresistible resemblance to the popular number Pookkale Sattru from I.

Yevanda Ivan
Singers: MC Vickey, Sharmila
Lyrics: MC Vickey

The detour occurs in an abrupt fashion with an eerie number laced with sultry chorus along with peppy Rap lyrics as well. The electric guitar stands out in a prominent fashion. Nevertheless, the track neither offers novelty or paves the way for any experimentation.

Adiyae Adiyae
Singers: Karthik, Shalini
Lyrics: Thamarai

A funky number is rightfully saved by Karthik’s mesmerizing voice which reaches a no man’s land as it progresses by. While the trendiness and usage of electric guitar and bass work sounds impressive, the lack of linear progression and pale experimentation makes it a fairly passable listen.

Mutta Bajji
Singers:  Gana Vinoth, Anthony Dassan, Marana Gana Viji, Ebisa
Lyrics: Gana Vinoth, G.Prabha

The striking finale occurs with a rustic folk number dominated outright by Gana Vinoth and the talented Anthony Dassan. Lack of new sounding and experimentation is quite evident in this track as well.  The loops and the rhythm section sounds quite out of place and fail to aid the powerful lead vocalists.

Verdict: A passable album from Harris!
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
