Okato Classu

Singers : Mukesh,Priyadarshini

Rehash of “Daddy Mummy” ! This song is strikingly similar to “Daddy Mummy” number from “Villu”.Not even for a second,this song sounds original.The arrangements,beats,vocal style,lyrics everything is a pale copy of Daddy Mummy number.The masses might love this track but this song clearly shows the lack of creativity.A disappointing start !

Thakka Thaiyaa

Singers : Karthik

“Thakka Thaiyaa” seems like a festival/celebration song.The song also has dialogue pieces from Santhanam & Karthi.The vocals are rendered by Karthik in his usual style.The interludes are filled by Nadaswaram & the beats are accompanied by Dhols,Drums & Mridangams.There is nothing wrong with the tune but somewhere,something falls short.Repeated listenings might work for this song.

Kidnap Raja

Singers : Devi Sri Prasad,Anitha

This one’s a different number ! The lyrics suggest that the song is set in a forest & the hero is threatening the heroine.DSP renders the song in a different,haunting style.The spooky animal effects also add up to the enjoyment.This one is a good listen & peppy one too !

Bad Boy

Singers : Baba Sehgal,Priya Himesh

A Baba Sehgal number is almost mandatory in a DSP album.The combination of DSP + Baba Sehgal + Priya Hemesh which delivered a successful “Kaadhal Vandhale” number from Singham is back again.This is easily one of the album’s better songs.The “Bad Boy” phrase is quite catchy & the song is easily foot tapping.Album’s best !

Rayya Rayya

Singers : Javed Ali,Ranina Reddy

Done & Dusted ! “Rayya Rayya” starts with a processed prelude humming & within seconds after you start listening to this number,one can easily judge the route the song is going to take.There is nothing new in this song.The beats seem jaded,the lyrics – usual & the vocals – nothing extraordinary to lift this song.

DSP disappoints big time ! This will go down as Karthi’s weakest soundtrack till date.There are no traces of innovation whatsoever & some of the songs remind us of DSP’s previous hit numbers.Don’t know why but even the male singers under DSP’s music sound like DSP’s vocals.The “Bad Boy” number & “Kidnap Raja” number are noteworthy.The remaining songs might take some time to get into listeners.The visuals promise to be cool & that might save the other songs.For die hard DSP fans,this album will surely appeal and the mass appeal might save these numbers.But,DSP needs to come up with fresh tunes just like he did in “Manmadhan Ambhu”,”Oosarevalli” & “100% Love”.Time for re-invention…big time !

Picks of the album : Bad Boy,Kidnap Raja

Album Verdict : A boring soundtrack laced with clichés !
