Veera Vinayaka
Singers: Anirudh, Vishal Dadlani
Lyrics: Viveka

Anirudh has duplicated his voice track to bring in an interesting force to his vocals in this track. This supposedly bhakthi padal-like composition is not deprived of Anirudh's usual love for trance. The song has overriding instrumentation to deliver the power of the emotion. Daf rolls, electric guitars and innumerable sound patches deliver a vigorous song.

Don't You Mess With Me
Singers: Shakthisree Gopalan, Shruti Haasan
Lyrics: Madan Karky

Invoking some girl power, this erotic hip-hop track transforms into an interesting Rn'B interlude and then again settles into a funky Beyonce-sque song. Shruti's truly international rendition is the attraction and this will also be your pick during the pub scenes. The is the kind of track you would like to turn up both your volume and bass up for.

Uyir Nadhi Kalangudhae
Singers: Ravishankar
Lyrics: Viveka

A mesmeric pathos composed like an authentic light classical-rock song, Anirudh's ability to fuse any known genre with the local flavor acts as a major plus when it comes to the overall sound of the song. The Veenai backed by the guitars on distortion in the first interlude and the portions involving the backup singers lends it a beautiful feel.

The Theri Theme
Singers: Anirudh
Lyrics: Siva

Anirudh's strongpoint house-mix is in top form here. Making use of the already famous 'Theri' catch phrase, this theme track is a colourful blend of all possible effects and loops. An example of effective programming, the track is bound to bring an eruption of cheer when played onscreen.

Aaluma Doluma
Singers: Anirudh, Baadshah
Lyrics: G Rokesh

The ideal chart-buster of the album, this Rokesh-written folk-EDM song is made with a compulsion to instigate the dancer in us. The sudden rhythm breakdowns, increase and decrease in the pace of the song, derivative BGM and a rap portion in the prelude are all the necessary elements for a proper kuthu number.

Verdict: Anirudh serves it hot for Ajith fans!
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
