Vocals : Vijay Antony, Emcee Jazz, Janani Iyer, Naresh Iyer, Ranjith, Sangeetha, Vinaya, Vijay Prakash, Saindhavi, Ajesh.
Lyrics : Priyan, Eknath, Annamalai
Uthama Puthiran is Dhanush's next movie which is directed by Mithran Jawahar. This will be the pair's third movie together after Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Kutty. This will also be a hat-trick of remake movies for the two. Uthama Puthiram is a remake of Telugu hit Ready and is produced by Mohan Appa Rao. Genelia will star in the movie with Dhanush. The music of the movie has been composed by Vijay Antony while Priyan, Eknath and Annamalai have penned the lyrics.

Ussumu Laresay...
Vocals: Vijay Antony, Emcee Jazz, Janaki Iyer

Lyrics: Priyan

Typical to a Vijay Anthony song, Ussumu Laresay starts with a rap flavor and moves on to heavy guitar and 'kuthu' arrangements. The Vijay Anthony touch is very visible especially with sounds like 'nachakku nachakku' and more rap in the middle. Lyrics are not a great plus to the song
  Uthama Puthiran
but as is the case with previous attempts of Vijay, this one may get strike a chord with the audience.

Kan Irandil...

Vocals: Naresh Iyer
Lyrics: Eknath

From a peppy dance number, Naresh tells you how he fell down Kan Irandil Mothi. When you just imagine, it will be a melody, he gets to the next gear with the usual drum arrangements. The song does remind us of songs of the past but Naresh does a good job in carrying it right through. Worth a listen!

Idicha Pacharisi...

Vocals: Ranjith, Sangeetha, Vinaya
Lyrics: Annamalai

Vijay Antony gets into his groove again with Idicha Pacharisi. A song of celebration, this one has a folk flavor to it. With the women and men chorus interludes adding more pep, the nagaswaram sounds make it even more authentic. Ranjith, Sangeetha and Vinaya have done a good job. Fast paced song, but fails to engage!

En Nenju...
Vijay Prakash, Saindhavi
Lyrics: Priyan

We are treated to lovely sounds of the violin in En Nenju. A different experiment this time makes this more than just a melody. Ordinary lyrics like "Idhyangal idam maruthu" and "Vali kooda sugamaguthu" does let us down a little. But the song weighs on the positive side for the musical experiment. Has the potential to hit the charts!

Thooral Podum...
Vocals: Ajesh, Janaki Iyer
Lyrics: Eknath

Ajeesh and Janani do a nice job in Thooral Podum singing with the mood of the song. Guitar strums indicate a good opening for the song and is carried forward in a soothing manner. Though heavy at times for a melody, the music is just about perfect. Will fall into the play-it-again category!

Ulagam Unakku...
Vocals: Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Annamalai

A typical I’m-the-hero-of-the-movie song, Ulagam Unakku sounds monotonous right from the start. "Ulagam unakku kavalai ethukku... irukkum varaiyal adithu norukku" screams Vijay Prakash. The song neither has the vigor nor the zap to make you want to listen again. This also makes the song a little preachy at times. Nothing special about this!


Overall, Uthama Puthiran is a typical Vijay Antony album with raps, kuthus and melodies. It is disappointing that the usual zing attached to a Vijay Antony album is missing this time. Though a couple of songs and sound experiments sound promising, it is not enough to make this album connect with the audience!
