Singers: Gaana Bala
Gaana bala delivers his best again with his casual singing and ‘rhyming lines’ penned with elan, explaining how the hero wants to steal his love’s heart so badly and his VADA POCHE moments. The song will capture people’s hearts for sure, traversing from pazha gana, pop to baangra beats.
Easily the best happy soup song till date.
Enge ponaalum (Prayer song)
Singers: Naresh Iyer, Dr.Narayanan
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
A kick-ass devotional-love song that starts with VS.Raghavan telling us why you need to chant this though a girl has ditched you .It then leads the doorway to Dr.Narayanan murmuring the hymns of KAM-mantras (I mean CALM down for the heart-breaks) and then Naresh providing his opening the list of sweet trashes and veri- wishes to be granted to the girl and her close-ones. The lyrics and the singing never meets the boredom unless you are that one awesome ponnu.After a real long time ,Naresh has come up with a Bang-on song.
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
Hariharan is one singer who continues to show his prowess even after so many years.He stars in this simple cute song which has some intriguing strings and Enrique iglesius pop signature spilled over in certain parts during the start and towards the end.The lines explains the hero’s dream of celebrating his lover’s birthday in a grandeur .Malavika gets a small part and does a fine job with the backing chorus.
Singers: Ved Shankar
Lyrics: Ved Shankar
How would one shout at someone as a dog in different languages and nicknames ? For all Dogsta people , here is a song, which is a total freak out in “Who let the dogs out” style elaborated with classical and rock stuff.There is also a surprise in the form of easy-to-hear raps and konakol to end the woes of an endless shout-spoken person.
Verdict: It is clear from the tracks that both the music directors and the director have had the freedom and intent of experimenting the situations with the music right from the start. The lyrics are easily understandable ,hilarious too and that’s the one, which makes the songs so appealing.A neat and demanding album to look for. Idharkuthane Aasaipataai Balakumaara!!!!!
