Evandi Unna Pethan  
Vocals: Silambarasan, Yuvan Shankar Raja
Lyrics: Silambarasan, U1

Overpoweringly attractive is the simple verdict to mark ‘Evandi Unna Pethan’ for its electrifying beats and an excellent sound engineering. Silambarasan’s lyrical lines are catchy but he could have limited himself from certain lines. This track has become the favorite amongst youngsters. The accompaniment by bass guitar adds more intensity to the song. It’s a perfect song for the party animals.

Vocals: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

This is the cherry-pick of the album as it establishes the soul of this film. Having worked on the song nearly for three months, Yuvan Shankar Raja has come up with a remarkable performance. Na. Muthukumar has penned the song based on philosophical theme of ‘Where God is? Nowhere but in the hearts of those who repent for their sins’. Sounds like the song will appear during the crucial point of this film. The mild and beautiful chords played on guitar followed by distorted guitar heard during interludes embellish the song. ‘Vaanam’ is one of the best compositions of Yuvan Shankar Raja. The producers should have got this number as single-track album as it would have gained more attraction for the movie.

Cable Raja
Vocals: Abhishek, Lawrence
Lyrics: Abhishek, Lawrence

A mass number exclusively meant for STR fans. It sounds like an introduction song for Silambarasan and it is reminiscent of Yuvan Shankar Raja’s yesteryear song ‘Variya’ (Pudhupettai).  The song includes the titles of Simbhu’s previous and upcoming movies.

Who Am I  
Vocals: Benny Dayal
Lyrics: Na. Muthukuma

Yuvan takes us for a ride through heavy metals and live drums that sound perfectly as a rock number. The lyrical lines centers upon a young man’s quest of himself just as the title signify ‘Who Am I?’ It may take some more time for the song to get its hold upon the listeners. The reason is because the instrumentals sound louder, thereby eclipsing the clarity of lyrics. Perhaps, if the essence of song is perceived clearly by listeners, it’s sure to make its way on top of charts. It sounds like the song is about a character confused to decide between his dreams and outside influences.

No Money. No Honey
Vocals: Silambarasan, Andrea, Srikanth Deva
Lyrics: Na. Muthukuma

A time-worn song that speaks about ‘Role of Money’ in everyone’s life and it’s an unstrained effort from entire team. Years back, we have come across a similar song titled ‘Chenna Pattanam’ from the film ‘Allithantha Vaanam’. Simbhu and Yuvan have picked a part of tune from ‘Nalam Thaana’ (Silambattam). With the song involving Simbhu, Anushka, Santhanam and producer Ganesh, we can expect that the song will gain more attraction with the visuals. Andrea steps out of her usual pattern of crooning melodious numbers and experiments with a fast-Kuthu number.

Verdict: ‘Vaanam’ can be regarded as one of the Yuvan’s better composition and it is sure to make high waves now. While ‘Evandi Unna Pethan’, ‘Vaanam’ and ‘Who Am I’ touches the surpassing degrees on different styles, ‘Cable Raja’ and ‘No Money’ caters to the tastes of mass audiences.
