Review By : Album Release Date : Jun 19,2017

VIKRAM VEDHA CAST & CREW
Production: Ynot Studios Cast: Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi Direction: Pushkar Gayathri Screenplay: Pushkar Gayathri Story: Pushkar Gayathri Music: Sam C.S Background score: Sam C.S Cinematography: P S Vinoth Dialogues: Manikandan

Karuppu Vellai 
Singers: Sivam & Sam C S
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivn

Karuppu Vellai to start with is of the rock genre. It has the heavy guitar distortions and the attractive deep vocals of Sivam and composer Sam CS himself. It features the music that is heard in the Vikram Vedha teaser and is a serious song which talks about the outline of the film and preaches. Apart from guitars and the vocals, percussions also add to this track which ends on a slightly softer note after starting off with rock.

Yaanji Yaanji  
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander & Shakthisree Gopalan
Backing Vocal: Sathiya Prakash
Lyrics: Mohanraj

A melody crooned by the versatile singers Anirudh and Shakthisree Gopalan. There is a mild use of autotune and Shakthisree sounds soothing yet stylish. Anirudh is at his usual good form and the tune is catchy and quite simple that makes it hummable. String instruments like Banjo and Harp have been used well and Yaanji Yaanji is a nice melodious track that is likeable by one and all.

Tasakku Tasakku 
Singers: Mugesh, M L R Karthick, Guna And Chorus
Lyrics: Muthamil

This is an unusual folk based song. Sung by the whacky vocals of Mugesh, MLR Karthick and Guna, it is a proper situation based song that is on the lines of “Onnu Rendu” from Iraivi. Instruments used are majorly percussion oriented and the composer has played well with the vocals and the modulations. In fact, Vijay Sethupathi’s voice is also heard in between. It is a different and very innovative song.

Yethu Dharmam?
Chennai Orchestra

A complete instrumental by Chennai Orchestra, Yethu Dharmam is a high octane number. It has some really nice beats and a good fusion of guitars and Cello with a very superior mixing and mastering that enhances this track by Chennai Orchestra. It gives the Eerie feel as well.

Pogatha Yennavittu 
Singers: Pradeep Kumar & Nega Venugopal
Lyrics: Sam C S

 

A beautiful song for the situation of love. Singer Pradeep Kumar who’s voice was magical in ‘Poo Avizhum’ sounds very impressive with Pogatha Yennavittu as well. It has some nice use of strings, Oud, flute and traces of violin as well. Nega Venugopal has a sweet voice and this compliments Pradeep’s beautiful vocals. Composer Sam CS has delivered a neat song in the melody genre. The latter half of the song is particularly beautiful as it has an emotional connect with the play of instruments.

 

Ghetto Chase
Singers: Meghavarshini, Avantika & Monisha
Chennai Orchestra

Ghetto Chase is a fast paced number sung by Meghavarshini, Avantika and Monisha and is a typical situation song that is proof that the movie can be expected to have a musical narrative. Again, the music from the teaser has been played well with. Chennai orchestra give another unique number with the use of instruments like Lute and Sarod which are Indian string instruments and also use synth to add a western flavour.

Idhu Emosion 
Chennai Orchestra

Idhu Emosion, as the name suggests, is an emotion kindling song. It has also been composed by Chennai Orchestra and the backbone of this emotional number is the violin portions complimented well by the string usage. It is a very attractive instrumental piece.

Yethu Nyayam?  
Singers: Sam C S
Chennai Orchestra

Yet another rendition by Chennai Orchestra for Vikram Vedha. Composer Sam CS has taken the route with an album majorly banking on instruments. Even though the track follows a certain pattern that is usually adapted by Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer, it seems fresh and could be apt for the story telling. It is a song that has a question attached to it and catering to this is the genre as well.

Sangu Sattham
Singers: Sethu Thankachan, Kannan M, Ravikumar

Sangu Sattham is a short stint by Sethu Thankachan, Kanna and Ravikumar. It has use of instruments like Madolin and Ukulele and a depth filled string usage throughout. It is another innovative attempt by Sam CS with quite some experimentation.

Oru Katha Sollatta?
Singers: Sam C S, Sethu Thankachan, Kannan M & Ravikumar
Chennai Orchestra

 

Yet another track in this album which is completely ruled by the orchestra and no lyrics. The Chennai Orchestra takes total control of the track with an expert usage of the strings and arranges a haunting score. Singers Sam C S, Sethu Thankachan, Kannan M & Ravikumar hum their bits with total robust rage.

Verdict: An innovative, genre specific album that has the depth and soul from composer Sam CS!
2.75
