Maanja ★★★★½

Singers: Anirudh Ravichander

Lyrics: Madhan Karky

The album’s best track! Typical Anirudh track with peppy beats, an instantly catchy hook and some lively singing by the man himself. ’Maanja’ has some funny lyrics in the local dialect thanks to Madhan Karky’s creativity. Th saxophone and string usage is commendable and the sounds don’t jar the lyrics at any time. The interlude rap is funnily effective too. Extremely addictive track!

Darling Dambakku★★★☆☆

Singers: Benny Dayal, Sunidhi Chauhan

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Already hugely popular, thanks to the teaser. ‘Darling Dambakku’ is Anirudh stepping into the folk zone. With vocals from Benny & Sunidhi, this song boasts of a massy tune filled with typical folksy beats. The

sitar interlude and the flavor of the song is sure to make it a chartbuster.

Royapuram Peter★★½☆☆

Singers: Sivakarthikeyan, Paravai Muniamma, Tamilarasan

Lyrics: RD Raja

‘Royapuram Peter’, much on the lines of ‘Local Boys’ from Ethirneechal is a loud, dance number strictly for the dancing shoes. The track boasts of some humorous lyrics but the tune is outright one dimensional. Paravai Muniamma & Sivakathikeyan – although forming the odd combination, try their best to save this track. Must get impressive with the visuals.

Un Vizhigalil★★★★½

Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Shruti Hassan

Lyrics: RD Raja

Here comes the melody! This is the type of song one would love to listen on a long drive. The tune is smooth having a pleasant aura around it and the singing just enhances the track. Anirudh & Shruti deliver their parts well enough. The song gets better during every successive listen. The second best song of the album!

Open The Tasmac★★★☆☆

Lyrics: Gaana Bala

Singers: Deva, Anirudh Ravichander

The much touted Deva’s comeback song! The ‘Gaana King’ is back with his typical gaana type singing with a song set in a bar scenario. Anirudh chips in with the vocals and is almost a pioneer in this genre of music these days. The synth usage in the interludes are mighty impressive and fuses well with Deva’s rendition. Entertaining!

Darling Dambakku Reprise★★½☆☆

Singers: Nivas, Kalpana

Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Probably the weakest track of the album! The reprise version of ‘Darling Dambakku’ lacks the punch the original version had and is let down by the lead singers though they try their best. The instrumentation isn’t much different from the original. And in all probabilities, this track won’t feature in the movie.

Verdict: ‘Maan Karate’ marks Anirudh in his ‘hit-making’ zone again. Although little inconsistent with a couple of tracks, he makes sure that his midas touch is still with tracks like ‘Maanja’,’Un Vizhigalil’ & ‘Open The Tasmac’ and raises up the expectations bar for his forthcoming flicks.

Picks of the album: Maanja, Un Vizhigalil

Album Verdict: A mixed bag albeit an effective one!

Album Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
