Samar sees director Thiru teaming up with hero Vishal and music director Yuvanshankar Raja for the second time after Theeradha Vilayattu Pillai. The film has Vishal, Trisha, Sunaina and Manoj Bajpai all playing important roles.
The processed vocals in the beginning give the sense of delusion. The song is dark and gritty with menacing beats and synth effects. There is some relief half way through the song when we hear the more familiar voice of Yuvan. The song’s lyrics and mood describe someone suffering from mental claustrophobia and the sounding of the alarm towards the end may suggest that the person is set for a rude awakening.
The tune is pretty generic in terms of sound and approach. The opening chords are a bit reminiscent of ‘Poga poga’ from Pattiyal. The lyrics are typical of a hero introduction song, with the words praising his speed, strength and fearlessness. Ranjith and Naveen Madhav are good choices for a youthful male voice while Suchitra chips in with the common English fillers.
The song features the unmistakable voice of Udit Narayan, but there are times where it does get a touch nasal. It’s a soft romantic number in the backdrop of a drum n bass groove. Yuvan does make room for some live instruments like the flute and veena, the latter especially has a nice solo. Both singers seem to feed off each other quite nicely, Shwetha Mohan particularly impresses with her emoting.
A bouncy tune that’s pretty simple and straightforward. The melody and hooks are connatural and mostly of the widely accepted kind. Rita’s voice goes through a few overdubs and is processed in places to give it a dark yet sensuous tone. Ranjith is made to sound mysterious and chant out English lines that are far from being original or profound.
This would have to be the most radio-friendly tune of the entire bunch in the album. Again, the groove carries a strong resemblance to Yuvan’s earlier work, this time ‘En Kadhal Solla’ from Paiyaa. But the melodies are pleasant, especially the “ayayyo” chorus segments, and the presentation is neat despite being almost customary for Yuvan’s own standards.
