‘Zinda’ was rocking & while one wondered how the rest of the album would turn out, the magical trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have come out with ‘Mera Yaar’. The song starts off slowly with guitar strumming & vocals kick-in later. Javed Bashir single-handedly owns this song with his towering vocals. The chord progression throughout the song deserves special mention. The song has an earthy, soulful feeling attributed to it. The vocal-fillers enhance the song & surprisingly, this number doesn’t have a distinct second interlude but the singing makes up for it. ’Mera Yaar’ is another feather in the composer’s cap & is a worthy successive release to Zinda. Now that both the songs(Zinda & Mera Yaar) are extremely brilliant, a fantastic platform has been laid for the remaining songs in the album to scorch the charts.
Of recent, most of the Tamil albums seem to have their audio launches in different venues across the globe. Naturally, there were huge expectations behind the audio release of Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam. Finally, the Ulaga Nayagan has decided to have a different one of its kind audio launch in 3 different places namely Chennai, Coimbatore and Madurai. The audio launch will be on November 7th and interestingly, Kamal Haasan will be present in all the three venues in person. Wonder how? Keep thinking as he has coined out something really innovative. Vishwaroopam's music has been composed by the trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Interestingly, November 7th is also Ulaga Nayagan's birthday! Having an audio launch on that day is an additional excitement to all his fans.
