Director Vikraman returns with his latest offering Ninaithadhu Yaaro. The film introduces newcomers Rejith and Nimisha. Music is by debutant X.Paulraj.

Konjum Punnagai
Singers: Harish Raghavendra, Vinaya
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

X. Paulraj presents himself as composer who focuses entirely on the melody aspect of a song. Mostly the orchestration is relegated to a supporting role to some sweet but antiquated melodies. One gets the sense that the track is deprived of some freshness with the orchestration.

Manase Ringa
Singers: Ranjith, Swetha Mohan
Lyrics: Vairabharathi

A fairly uptempo tune that struggles to decide between being urban or rural. The orchestration suggests one direction but the lyrics aim at something different altogether. The end result makes for difficult listening despite having some catchy moments. Again, the composer shows that he has the ability to churn out impressive and catchy melodies. Ranjith and Swetha Mohan sound youthful.

Kairegai Polathan Kadhal
Singers: Haricharan, Madhushree
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

A soft and slow melody that holds promise, but despite the talented singers efforts the track finds itself short of being thoroughly engaging. This deficit may be attributed to the treatment which is simplistically old fashioned. Haricharan and Madhushree both sound very tender and give the melody an emotional fragility.

Kadhal oru Mafia
Singers: Jassie Gift, Suchitra
Lyrics: Vairabharathi

A hummable melody with an infectious hook makes for this playful tune. The track trots along without any urgency but could have done well with some more speed. The lyrics are fun in nature and take a dig at the opposite sexes but even as the singers, Jassie Gift and Suchithra, deliver their best, the track is left wanting for more energy and a little more life injected into it.

Azhagana Kolaikari
Singers: Harish Raghavendra, Vinaya
Lyrics: Kalai Kumar

The dependent use of violins, veena backing a soulful melody makes for a tune that won’t feel out of place in a Vikraman film. The chorus especially has a trademark of the director’s ear for such melodies. Harish Raghavendra safely delivers the goods with his singing hitting all the right notes and emotions.

Kairegai Polathan Kadhal(female)
Singers: Chinmayee
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

The track rests safely in the good hands of Chinmayee who does the melody justice in a solo performance. But the grip the singer brings with her voice isn’t consolidated with the instrumental interludes which come across as slightly dated. The string section however is well employed and achieves in bringing forth a sense of drama.

Kadhal Oru Mafia Remix
Singers: Hyde Karty, Jassie Gift, Suchithra, Sylvester
Lyrics: Vairabharathi

What the original lacked is made up in this remix version. The fast electronic beats offer a racier tempo that’s further enhanced by the rap segments. The guitar riffs over the Indian percussions makes up what is a pretty entertaining groove overall.

Verdict: Classic 'Vikraman melody' fare with a sweetness overload!
