Iravu Vettai Aaduthey 

Singer: Suraj Jagan
Lyrics: Lalithanand


Rendered by the famous rock and indie-pop singer Suraj Jagan, the intense rock-based track involves simple guitar riffs and electronic beats complementing each other. The lead guitar interludes with a distortion effect add to the dark effect to go with the thriller film.

Song: Yendi Unna Pidikkuthu

Singer: Karthik
Lyrics: Lalithanand


A feel-good solo track in multi-faced singer Karthik's voice looks to be a typical love song with the lyrics connoting to the hero's speculation on his love. The bass lines and the acoustic guitars by the super talented Keba Jeremiah set the happy vibe rolling and the change of an engaging groove with the use of tapes will get you going.

Song: Vaazhvey Oru Poro

Singers: Sharanya Gopinath, Suraj Jagan, Lawrence
Lyrics: Lalithanand


Another Suraj Jagan number which also involves Sharanya Gopinath and Lawrence in vocals is a dark number relating to the genre of the movie. The track mostly involves keyboard programming done by the composer Riaz and ably supported by Keba in guitars.

Song: Thollai Seiyum Kadhal

Singer: Aarthi N Ashwin
Lyrics : Lalithanand


A romantic solo track rendered euphoniously by Aarthi looks to be a slow unplugged number. The romantic feel of the track is equally due to a well-played solo flute interlude and the complementing chord-progression with strings which also adds an aesthetic value and gives a wholesome effect to the listener.

Song: It's a Story

Singer: Sharanya Gopinath
Lyrics: Anthony Faze


The guitar riffs in the track look similar to Iravu Vettai Aaduthey but the highlight of the track being the timber in Sharanya Gopinath’s silvery voice and her ability to reach extreme octaves with ease  . The song just like it’s predecessors looks to contemplate towards the movie’s genre.

Verdict: Maanagaram is thematic composition fitting to the film's genre
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
