Lyrics: Vivek
Singer: KS Chitra

A riveting solo sung by the legendary playback singer K.S.Chitra thrills the listener with its chord progression and changeovers. The mild strings, symphony and the brilliant tune based on Nata Bhairavi scale is a pleasure to hear. The entire composition is enchanting with an amazing fervor of strings in the background. The delicate touches of the grand piano are another icing on the cake.

Ei Suzhali 

Lyrics: Vivek
Singer: Vijaynarain

The typical funkiness of Santhosh Narayanan is exhibited in this folksy number which is fused with modern jazz keys. Vijay Narain’s sultry vocals add much attitude to this rustic fusion. The digital riffs effortlessly fuse with the indigenous percussions with sheer brilliance. Watch out for the incredible journey of the jazz keys which break all the conventional boundaries!

Kodi Parakkudha

Rap & Verses: Dhanush, Arunraja Kamaraj

An essential rustic number is equipped with Dhanush and Arunraja’s powerful vocals and feisty trumpets. The storytelling style of the composition is quite appealing and builds up perfect tension needed. The funky brass instruments give additional punches to the composition in perfect style. The jazz keys are indeed a masterstroke for this raw folk number.

Vettu Pottu

Lyrics: Vivek
Singer: Shankar Mahadevan

The high voltage playback singer Shankar Mahadevan joins the party with amazing energy levels and heavily laden riffs. However, there are less changeovers in the composition to rejoice. The song has an eeriness associated with it and at the same time leaves the listener pondering for more. The interludes are feisty with nadaswaram and rhythms section.

Sirukki Vaasam

Lyrics: Vivek
Singer: Anand Aravindakshan, Shweta Mohan

The finale arrives in contemporary style with a trance melody sung by the ever sweet Shweta Mohan and supported greatly by Anand’s brisk vocals. The song makes an ideal listening for a road trip for its mild strings, delicate treble and acoustic guitar. The live drumming gives the composition an easy listening tag.

Verdict: Kodi seems to be an apt composition for the film's subject
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
