Direction: Gautham Menon
Music: Ilaiyaraja
Production: RS Infotainment
Vocals: Karthik, Suraj Jagan, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Ramya NSK, Sunidhi Chauhan, Ilaiyaraja, Bela Shinde
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar

After forming great musical combinations with the likes of Harris Jayaraj and A.R.Rahman, Gautham Menon has joined hands with Maestro Ilaiyaraja for this romantic caper. Jiiva and Samantha look great together and the album promises a lot. Does it deliver?

Kaatrai Konjam...  
Singer: Karthik

The song begins with beautiful harmony and what follows is a typical Ilaiyaraja number which is enjoyable thanks to the surreal saxophone (or is it the clarinet?) touches and the catchy tune. The female chorus in the second interlude is haunting while Karthik has sung in a base pitch. The violin touches in the first interlude are again characteristic of Raja.

Pudikale Maamu...
Singers: Suraj Jagan, Karthik

The song begins in a rocking fashion (reminiscent of AC/DC) with the drums and electric guitar in place and this mood is maintained till the second interlude. After that the song gets into a ‘Kuthu’ mode which stands out oddly. The lyrics talk about college life of teenagers. The youthful mood of the song is its biggest trump card and it might work on screen.

Yennodu Vaa Vaa...
Singer: Karthik

Starts off with typical Ilaiyaraja instrumentation and having Karthik again for this song brings some sort of monotony. Raja’s instrumental interludes make a mark as always, particularly the violin touches. Another chartbuster in all probability!

Saayndhu Saayndhu...  
Singers: Yuvan Shankar Raja, Ramya NSK

This is a number where the singing doesn’t match the lofty instrumentals especially Yuvan who drags a bit. The guitar and the percussive beats give the required pep to the song while the piano notes in the first interlude are serene. The splendid symphony in the second interlude is the icing on the cake for this number which is sure to hit the charts soon.

Pengal Yendral...
Singer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Begins with heavy metal touches and the lyrics talk about the boy’s anguish in love. The dramatic element in this song is matched by the heavy instrumentals, with the electric guitar and drums being prominent. A new genre for Ilaiyaraja, for sure and Yuvan’s spirited rendition lifts the song. It will find its niche of listeners with time.

Mudhal Murai...
Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan

Another song with rock touches thanks to the heavy instrumentations. Sunidhi Chauhan is spunky as always with her energy and the chorus proclaiming the movie’s title is blissful. It’s sheer genius to include violin and other string touches in this number.

Sattru Munbu...
Singers: Ramya NSK

This song talks about the pain that the girl suffers due to her love and the instrumentation in this song is intricate thanks to the symphony. Ramya is sober and brings out the anguish through her rendition;she easily shifts pitch. One needs patience to appreciate this number as it might slowly grow on you.

Vaanam Mella...  
Singers: Ilaiyaraja,  Bela Shinde

The female harmony and the bagpipes at the start set the mood for the song. Raja’s mastery over orchestrated instrumentations shines through yet again while he has also lent his voice for this duet. The song has an old world feel thanks to its straightforward duet structure. But, it’s a winner nevertheless.

Verdict: It’s a strong comeback for Ilaiyaraja and this has turned out to be another musical treat from Gautham Menon. A new superhit combo is born!!!
