Uchimalai Azhagu 
Singers: Mukesh
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


Uchimalai Azhagu sung by Mukesh, starts off like a tribal based song. It then slowly moves onto the folk genre dominated by percussions. The lyrics by Yugabharathi seem very well written. There are traces of instruments like the tribal fiddle to give the indigenous forest feel. The tune is not at it’s best but there is some level of nativity in the song.

Otha Paarvaiyil
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja, Sri Mathumitha
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


A love based melodious number rendered with the voices of Yuvan Shankar Raja and Sri Mathumitha. Yuvan’s voice is never a let down and Mathumitha has done a fair job with the vocals too. There is a good blend of the Sitar and guitar. However, there isn’t enough  experimentation for Otha Paarvayil to make it a stand out melody.

Saama Kodangi 
Singers: Velmurugan, Anitha Jayamoorthy
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Saama Kodangi starts off with high energy percussions and just within a few seconds there is a transition back to the usual folk genre. Velmurugan is at his comfort zone singing these kind of folk numbers. Anitha tries to keep up her energy levels too in this number which is headed by the drums. A positive sounding number that has a good setting for a heavy dance sequence.

Aagaatha kaalam
Singers: Ananthu
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


A melancholy number by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The composer scores well with his strings and Ananthu adds the pain feel to the song. Yugabharathi gets some scope to portray his talents and he does well with the lyrics for this tragedy based song. Instruments have been kept simple and there is use of sitar, strings and a lingering drums in the background. A situational number that has worked well for Kadamban.

Ilaratham Sodera
Singers: MLR Karthikeyan
Additional Singers : Senthil Dass, Sam Harish
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Ilaratham Sodera is a unity based song that talks about opposing something. Vocals by MLR Karthikeyan are apt for this genre. It is fast paced and has some good use of instruments. The strings and programmed keyboard sound well in a mix. Lyrics are again meaningful and rhyme well. A number on the lines of Nimirndhu Nil from Saroja that has the feel good factor backed up by some good singing and fast paced music.

Verdict: A passable adventure by Yuvan for Kadamban that is just about competent!
