Kaaki Sattai
Singers: Vishal Dadlani
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

Vishal Dudlani's rugged voice and the funkiness in the treatment of the song establish the theme. Effects of the walkies-talkies and the functional use of the siren sound are innovative. Distorted guitars, rudiments on the snare and chorus portions by the children are the daring attempts.    

Kadhal Kan Kattudhe
Singers: Anirudh, Shakthishree Gopalan
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

The bolder Shakthi Shree and the alluring Anirudh team up for a structured melody. Minute portions of flute and veenai along with dampened beats give a whole new genre'- blues and mild folk. The acoustic guitar strumming in the background, harmonium for the interlude and the strong bass line are the scoring areas. The slow progression of the tune, sudden lows and the break-downs are Anirudh's killer elements.

The Trooper Theme
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

Anirudh gets all of his international exposure in this one single track. Dub-step, EDM, rap, DJ effects and the contrasting Udukkai for a theme song. Listeners already exposed to such gaming-type numbers can relish it.  

I'm so cool
Singers: Anirudh, Sivakarthikeyan
Lyrics: Arun Raja Kamaraj

Anirudh's voice and the colloquial lyrics are the striking features. The jumpy loop station, Sivakarthikeyan's gimmicks and the sudden konnakol are all surprising. The appealing drum rolls and the over-lapping flute notations are experimental. The charanam part is the winner. A catchy track is ready.   

Kaaki Sattai Theme Music
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

This is the instrumental adaptation of the title song led by saxophone. Guitars on full throttle and the chenda melam offer a power-packed, energetic theme song.   

Singers: Anita , Antonydasan, Manasi
Lyrics: Anthony Dassan

A soft-folk and jazz merged number with programmed thavil. The accents on the tape beats, slapping of the bass guitar, nadhaswaram in the prelude, female chorus portions and the use of tumbi towards the end show Anirudh is getting explorative. Anthony Daasan is the life-line of the song.     

Shake That Singer
Singers: Anirudh

Trumpet - Congo beats - Loop station - jarring effects - street rap - DJ - house mix . Untried effort from Anirudh is 'Shake that'. A street hip-hop like mix with groovy loops, rapping, Congo beats and the trumpets. A song for listeners with international tastes !

Verdict: Expectation from Anirudh unfortunately is way higher.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
