Dukkum Dukkum 

Singer - Anita Venkat
Lyrics – Yugabharathi

The album gets a folksy punch in the so-called Imman style chord progression. The pleasant chorus prelude effortlessly takes the listener on a tour of rhythm and feisty string section. Anita Venkat’s sultry vocals are quite enjoyable to hear for its freshness. The rhythm slowly progresses to be more fun-filled and entertaining. The interludes are adept with feel good strings and melodious chord progression. However,the song lacks experimentation or vigor which is so important for such genres.

Unkooda Pesathane

Singer - Shreya Ghoshal , Anthony Daasan
Lyrics – Yugabharathi

A soul-stirring duet featuring the sweet sounding Shreya Ghoshal and haunting humming of Anthony Dassan arrives next composed in the evergreen raga Shivaranjani. The dew drop acoustic guitars and mild rhythm section set the stage for a beautiful number. The song carries the film’s soul in the so-called Imman style and has the aura of 80s rustic melodies.


Singer - D. Imman
Lyrics – Yugabharathi

A Spanish style number sung by the composer D.Imman himself gives a contemporary touch to this otherwise rustic album. The riveting guitar in rumba style is effectively balanced by the folk-styled lead vocals. The typical unpredictable chord progression which is so typical of Imman albums makes its presence in this song. The interludes are feel good, compelling and at the same time enjoyable to hear.


Singer - Sathya Prakash
Lyrics – Yugabharathi

The finale strikes in grace with an impressive fusion song which has folk lead vocals and modern electric guitars. The first interlude’s electric guitar solo is quite brilliant and has the flavors of Hindustani Raag Jog in effervescent style. The song has a beautiful presentation which gives the “old meets new” flavor in great conviction. Watch out for the timely ticks of the electric guitar now and then which garnish the song in perfect vigor.

Verdict: Roobai is a typical Imman style album which scores high on melodies but falls short in novelty.
