Yennai Arindhaal is an upcoming movie starring Thala Ajith Kumar as the lead hero alongside two ravishingly beautiful ladies, Trisha and Anushka. The movie also marks the comeback of one of the evergreen combos Gautham Menon and Harris Jayaraj after six long years.  

Yaen Ennai
Singers: Kharesma Ravichandran, Sunitha Sarathy
Lyrics: Thamarai

With gypsy like strumming of the guitars to set the rhythm, Sunithy Sarathy and Khareshma's quirky yet open-throat singing sound different and appealing. The sax solo in the BGM is truly international. Take the time and hit the pods with this.

Mazhai Vara Pogudhae
Singers: Emcee Jesz, Karthik
Lyrics: Thamarai

This is evergreen Harris for you. Karthik's honeyed singing, strong features of R 'n' B, acoustic strumming and synthesized interludes. The harmonies in the background are a true delight. A jazzed up melody with a brief rap portion. The pop like beats, blues like guitar and the prog element reminds the Toto days.   

Unakkenna Venum Sollu
Singers: Benny Dayal, Mahathi
Lyrics: Thamarai

Using Benny Dayal for an almost pathos is a killer move. Backed by very strong chords, mild arrangements and evenly paced rhythms, this song can instantly bring a smile on your face. Chorus portions are soulful and the lyrics are a noteworthy experimentation.

Yennai Arindhaal
Singers: Abhishek, Devan Ekambaram, Mark Thomas
Lyrics: Thamarai

The title track is all pumped-up with the dub-step effects, dainty EDM loops and not forgetting Thamarai's dashing lyrics. The highs and lows  in the song are haunting and totally new. Harris has experimented with the tune progression and also has positioned the composition with multiple layered instrumentation. The interludes are tripping and Dj's delight.

Adhaaru Adhaaru
Singers: Gana Bala, Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivan

Starting with the lively chorus, the song is ruled by powerful singing and peppy beats. The rhythm breakdowns in the interludes are meant to evoke thunderous response. A nice casual gaana.

Maya Bazaar
Singers: Aalaap Raaju, Krishna Iyer, Priya Subramanian, Velmurugan
Lyrics: Thamarai

French house, light classical, folk-rock, ballet and what not. This is an ambitious blend of genre specific portions catering to a montage of sequences. Like the title, the song is one stop bazaar for all types of music.

Idhayathai Yedho Ondru
Singers: Chinmayi
Lyrics: Thamarai

Grand piano to substantiate Chinmayi's soft voice, this melancholic melody is a clean winner. A female take on the Unakenna venum sollu version, this track is rich in the notations.

Verdict: With huge expectations, Gautham Menon and Harris Jeyaraj avoid the tried and tested path and deliver an adventurous album. They are back !
( 3.25 / 5.0 )
