Pakkam Vanthu
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, ‘Hip Hop Tamizha’ Aadhi
Lyrics: Hip Hop Tamizha

A hip-hop track which becomes addictive after few listens. An out and out party-mix track high on Aadhi's lyrics and Anirudh's love-filled singing. The folk breakdown and fastening of the rhythms towards the end are genre' justifying in this new pub anthem in making.  

Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Shweta Mohan
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

The majestic Shankar Mahadevan exemplifies the grandeur of the setting with his powerful voice dealing a carnatic-folk song here. Anu-pallavi of the song is just musical brilliance. Celebration and unity are symbolized with the joyful group singing and approach of the tune.

Kaththi Theme
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

Urumi melam is the soul of  Kaththi theme. A quintessentially mastered electronic track majorly headed by programmed Santoor, synth effects and some Bagpipers. With the sounds of swords clashing and guns clocking, Kaththi theme is tailor made for Vijay with all the huffs and puffs.  

Selfie Pulla
Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan, Vijay
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

The super singer Vijay is at his best possible form. A potential blockbuster substantiated by programmed shehnai, foot-tapping rhythms and guitars on full distortion. The most beguiling song of the year is READY! What are you guys waiting for ? 

Bad Eyes
Singers: N/A
Lyrics: N/A

Using the water splashes to set the rhythm of the track is totally unique and experimental. Thathkaaram on the Flute, scintillating Sitar fills and bhols fused with electronic beats give a whole new feel to this instrumental piece.

Nee Yaaro
Singers: KJ Yesudas
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

How blessed is this generation to still have access to the golden voice? Yesudas renders a soulful pathos song with so much emotion. This one is bound to linger in our ears for a long time, if the visuals are matched. Guitars establishing the ragam right at the start of the song shows Anirudh’s maturity. Mild Kanjira strokes and mellifluous flute in-between are levitating. The composition also exposes the melancholic side of the delightful carnatic raaga Shankarabharanam at places.

Singers: Anirudh, Vishal Dadlani
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Open stringed guitars welcome us to this catchy R n B song with Vishal Dadlani's crispy voice placed on a groovy rhythm. Interludes and the rap portion going along the rhyme scheme are typical Anirudh killers. The composer proves yet again that he is blessed with the ability to identify the pulling factor of a simple tune and use it to the fullest 

Verdict: Anirudh officially kick starts Kaththi celebrations !
( 3.5 / 5.0 )
