HNY Puthandin
Singers: SJ Suryah
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A party track high on energy sung by Suryah himself. The electronic vocals, with philosophical lyrics, take off well with passionate electric guitar bits. The rap lyrics in the midst of House genre riffs let the track progress with good thumps.

Isai Veesi
Singers: Chinmayi
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A completely laid back track with mesmerizing vocals by Chinmayi. The peculiar chord progression has the flavor of a Spanish flamenco. The interludes include some fun moments with djembe rhythm touches.

Atho Vanile Nila
Singers: Chinmayi, Deva, Karthik
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A groovy number that’s high on rhythm and class. Karthik and Chinmayi pull off this track effortlessly. The simple yet gripping lyrics add to the feel.

Nee Poiya?
Singers: Vijay Yesudas
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A solo, based on New Age and Trance genres in terms of orchestration but styled with Indian vocals. The melancholic flavor is perfectly presented by Vijay Yesudas in vocals along with heartfelt lyrics. Having the evergreen flavor of Carnatic Nata Bhairavi Raaga, the composition creates a moody sublime.

Dirty Dancing
Singers: Shalini Singh
Lyrics: Georgina Singh, Shalini Singh

A sultry composition with a blend of Hip-Hop vocals and Kuthu beats. It has the shades of eternal pathos Carnatic Sindhu Bhairavi Raaga. However, the track goes repetitive as it progresses, lacking the instant thump factor.

Lip Lock Theme
Singers: Chinmayi

The velvety vocals of Chinmayi, makes this instrumental emotionally gripping. The breezy appearance of the orchestration with mild treble sounds, does the job.

She is his Piano Theme
Singers: Chinmayi

A funky gusty piano track interspersed with Chinmayi’s vocals. It is the Piano base in the Western Classical minor chord progressions that takes over this short piece with efficient mastery.

Baby Theme
Singers: Chinmayi

The album arrives to an optimistic ending with an uplifting instrumental. The Western Classical backdrop makes an impact.

Verdict: SJ Suryah should feel proud of his work in Isai !
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
