Singers: Yusuf
Lyrics: Traditional

The album begins in an auspicious manner with a traditional Muslim prayer performed well by Yusuf. The bass work and usage of traditional string instruments give it a spiritual and calming feel.

Unnai Kanda Naal Mudhal
Singers: Hemachandra, Srinivasan, Supriya Joshi
Lyrics: Annamalai

The album quickly changes to a contrasting trance mode reminding the listener of a popular Robert Miles track. The melody and the singers make sure that the influence can be overlooked. Hemachandra in particular is at his usual best.

Avala Nambithan
Singers: Emcee Jesz, Mahalingam
Lyrics: Gaana Bala

Another dance floor friendly tune arrives with a remix of the all time classic 'Siva Shambo' from Ninaithaale Inikkum. The usage of electric guitar gives the track a power packed feel. The singer isn’t a match for MSV’s energy in the original but nevertheless performs well. Gaana Bala's lyrics are an asset to the tune.

Mascara Pottu
Singers: Sharmila, Supriya Joshi, Vijay Antony
Lyrics: Priyan

The inevitable kuthu style of Vijay Anthony makes its presence here with interesting rhythm blended with rap lyrics. This track is the most fun-filled in the whole album as it packs a punch.

Ulagam Unnai
Singers: Prabhu Pandala
Lyrics: Annamalai

The album's finale is an ominous track sung well by Prabhu Pandala. The Arabic flavor makes its impact felt with great violins, string instruments and mellowed treble.

Verdict: A mixed bag from Vijay Antony.
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
