Singers: GV Prakash Kumar, Megha
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

The album begins with a peculiar brand of folk in the lively voice of the composer G.V. Prakash Kumar himself.  He adds huskiness to the track to give it the vivacious folk flavor as the track progresses to kuthu beats. The lilting guitar and haunting chorus in the first interlude give a unique touch to the track.

Lovely Ladies
Singers: Aaryan Dhinesh, Gana Bala, GV Prakash Kumar, Megha, Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

After a folksy start, it is time to gear up for a paced up track blended with various genres like House, Disco and local flavor as well. The track has a fading feel of Punjabi as well in the midst of local percussions.  The track oscillates between indigenous genres of House and Hip-Hop to give it a fun factor.

Penne Oh Penne
Singers: Al-Ruffiyan, Vandhana
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

The melodic touch is back with a groovy track blended with harmonium, guitar strums and great vocals by Vandana Srinivasan and Al-Ruffiyan. The vocals are not stylish or over emotional but are refreshingly laid back. The guitars progress well with the rhythm and the track also carries a beautiful Spanish flavor making it an enjoyable listen. It is interesting to see a plethora of instruments such as electronic saxophone, tabla, and piano in a feel good melody of this sort.

Idhayam Unnai Theduthe
Singers: GV Prakash Kumar, Saindhavi
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

This track strikes an emotional chord with impactful singing by the composer G.V. Prakash yet again and the track is well equipped with a peculiar rhythm along with progressive string section. The main highlight of the track is the phenomenal string section. It is a challenging track for the vocalists as it has many sliding notes but the couple pull it off well with ease.

Aadu Machi (Remix of Lovely Ladies)
Singers: DJ Vijay Chawla
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

The ecclectic Lovely Ladies track arrives again in a remix version now. Interestingly, the remix fares better than the original thanks to the prowess of the established DJ Vijay Chawla . The trance rhythm does wonders to the original composition.

A Restless Theme
Singers: Instrumental

The track begins with an unmistakable eeriness in the form of viola with progressive percussions leading to a world of restlessness- apt to the track’s title. The string section is gripping along with the crescendo it reaches as the track progresses. The usage of electric guitars in order to depict the aggression is a good form of experimentation. 

Verdict: A blend of intersting melodies from G.V. Prakash
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
