Jal jal osai
Singer: Aalap raju, Surmukhi
Lyricist: Yugabharathi

A refreshing number yet sounds like the typical attempt at singing by the boy next door to charm the village belle. Though lyrics are worthy of attention, the tune does not elevate it through the right platform and therefore, it feels like a mere rendering in between. But the beginning and ending of the song is appreciable. On the whole it is has a certain melodious unity, quite like all of Imman’s numbers.

Po po po
Singer: Javed ali
Lyricist: Yugabharathi

As in the case of most situational songs, this number too lacks that ‘in the face connec’t that lyrics will otherwise have. Therefore, it may be seem redundant yet, the instrumental bits here and there have more than made up to it. The unexpected amalgam of the score and instruments give this the right touch to make it click. Not one of Imman’s best, yet noteworthy.

Dang dang
Singer: Saisharan
Lyricist: Yugabharathi

The fast moving happy number of the album, but sadly lacks the ‘it’ factor. A unique combination of tabanguchi and modern chic music is appreciable though. In the hard hitting beats, lyrics are almost ignored and it is heard only when one cares to notice. Yet the beats ‘Dum Dum .. diga diga.. dum dum “ remains lingering in the years.

Yenna solla
Singer: Vijay Prakash, Chinmayi
Lyricist:  Yugabharathi

A tune that can get you swinging, yet seems more or less like a repetition of jal jal osai, with a better rhythm. Sadly a disappointment from Imman to give a bag of like sounding tracks. The lyrics are conversational in style thus, clearly nothing strikingly creative, so to speak. Yet again, the musical bits in between are the saving grace. Singer Vijay Prakash has done a great job.

Oorana oorukulla
Singer: Santosh Hariharan

Yet another repetition not just within the album but also with that of a popular track from VaaranamAiyram,    called “av ennai ennai tedi vanda anjala”. Though not really intentional, it seems like an inspiration deep down, and thus on the whole has a similar feel. It is just about average.

Album ★★★★★½☆☆☆☆

Verdict: A nice effort and going by the quality of music and the trailers seems like a low budgeted movie. Therefore it is appreciable and most be encouraged. But, the redundancy takes out the sheen of it. However, a few bits scattered across and the melody appreciable. Take a listen! It is definitely worth it.
