Engathaan Porantha
Singers: STR
Lyrics: STR

Nice flowing chords play along with a generic mid-tempo beat, a lot like ‘Loosu Penne’, even the lyrical identity is a lot similar. Still, STR has a nice knack of picking up good hooks for his songs and they’re arranged rather well here by Thaman.

Hey Vasamoakka
Singers: Andrea Jeremiah, Anirudh Ravichander
Lyrics: Madan Karky

The opening lines dedicated to the lead pair of the movie is cute, but Karky has better moments in the song. Thaman hints at getting a little adventurous with his presentation initially before resorting to the all-too-familiar but enjoyable format.

Inky Pinky Inky Ponky
Singers: S Thaman
Lyrics: Madan Karky

This time around Madan Karky’s way with words work even better as they lead into a jolly good chorus hook, which is catchy enough to sustain its worth. The track has the makings of a pop hit right from the beats to its sing-along sections topped off with candy auto-tune. 

Love Endravan Nee Yaruda
Singers: STR
Lyrics: STR

This is yet another song where it all comes together nicely in terms of lyrics, music and performance, almost at least. Thaman pushes all the right buttons to deliver a punchy rhythm and STR’s candid and forthright presentation of his thoughts is enjoyable from the sidelines as a listener.

Singers: Priyadarshini, T.Rajendar
Lyrics: Madan Karky

The staple kuthu song arrives in full force, which is sort of a given considering it features TR. The rhythm is racy and the track has a fresh enough hook going for it in terms of a chorus to earn its own identity. The popular songs and star references infused in the mix could guarantee the song reaching out widely.

Verdict: Guaranteed fun.
