Thalaivaa is one of the year’s most anticipated films starring Vijay and Amala Paul and directed by director Vijay. The film has G.V.Prakash continuing his partnership with director Vijay yet again and the album has 6 songs all written by Na. Muthukumar.
Psycho Unit’s intro Tamil rap sets the tone of the song and is guaranteed to raise the hairs of Vijay fans. The track features inventive processed beats that builds a groove which allows room for Vijay to show off his dance moves. Pyshco Unit’s second appearance is as impressive as his first, followed by a nice synth hook by GV. The vocal melody is easy to follow and makes a quick impression. Benny Dayal’s vocals are processed to an extent to suit the song’s theme and he does deliver an energetic performance. The lyrics are sure to strike a chord with the fans.
G.V comes up with yet another ‘family duet’ that is as well crafted as the couple’s earlier partnerships in the past, if not better. Maybe G.V is saving the best for himself and Saindhavi, and they don’t disappoint as they do possess a magical chemistry. The orchestration is simply grand especially with the string section being effectively used. A soft song but thoroughly enjoyable because of the sparkling melodic hooks and engaging orchestration.
The highly celebrated 25th ‘bhang-song’ sung by Vijay himself makes for the single most high point of this album. Santhanam too features in this song offering his classic ad-libs but its Vijay who singlehandedly propels this tune to delightfully dizzying heights. Vijay plays both actor and singer at the same time as he emotively slurs his way through hilarious lyrics, more drunken philosophies about love, without missing a note. G.V backs up the singer with infectious percussions and middle-eastern strings but all the roads eventually lead to the singer. Vijay – well done bro!
A racy electronic dance number right at the midpoint of the soundtrack to ensure that the built up momentum is sustained. The tune has just about enough to scrape through into this high profile album. The treatment given by G.V helps the song escape being an overly generic western tune, despite the objective being the very same. He throws in some catchy synth hooks just when the track seems to be plateau-ing out. The male singers Vijay Prakash, Abhay Jodhpurkar deliver spirited performances as the track rides mostly on them.
An instrumental with the flute taking the centre stage initially as the Violins dance in the background setting the groove. The brief tune builds up nicely featuring the melody of ‘Yaar indha Salai’ and knows exactly when to end.
A bit of Ilaiayaraja’s resonance is evident in the opening notes of the song and during the mid-section. Otherwise the track’s direction and focus remains on setting up a pulsating theme that’s clearly played to the gallery. The male chorus may seem rather simple but it does pack a punch nevertheless. The violins add the necessary drama. The echoing vocals are a clever production touch and ensure that ‘Thalapathy Thalapathy’ is ringing in your ears long after the song is over.
