Album Analysis

Yaaro Ivan

Singers : GV Prakash Kumar,Saindhavi

This song is a slow, neatly placed duet with both the lead singers etching out a nice rendition. This could well work if this song is shot as a montage. There are no hard percussion instruments jarring the lyrics much to the relief of listeners. The interludes deserve a mention. There is a little trace of auto-tuning in this but it doesn’t disturb the song in any way. A blissful ride !

Ora Kannala

Singers : Gana Bala

Catchy at first glance ! “Ora Kannala” used extensively in the promos has been grabbing eyeballs ever since it was telecasted. This song is of the ‘gaana’ genre & GV has attempted something unique. This song has all the ingredients to be the next youth anthem. Gana Bala eases through the lines effortlessly.Watch out !

Maalai Pon Maalai

Singers : SP Charan, Bela Shende

Probably the best song we might hear this year! “Maalai Pon Maalai” is a blissful, slow, romantic duet which has the old-age charm to it. The candy floss romantic tune sticks with the listeners.SP Charan does everything right & evokes SPB memories. Bela Shende does well too.This song is very simple in its approach yet this is the one which works the maximum. Double thumbs up!

Vaa Iravugal

Singers : GV Prakash Kumar, Ajmal Khan, Amrith Vishwanath

The techno’s are back! “Vaa Iravugal” is a completely techno-ish,club number fully loaded with synthesizers,mixers & fillers. The vocals somewhere get lost in the heavy instrumentation. This song didn’t get me going in the first instance but this started appealing after multiple listening. So,give it a try!

Indrodu Thadaigal

Singers : Srinivas,Ramya NSK

“Indrodu Thadaigal” is a typical Vaali song.The veteran is in full form & blazes with his lyrics. The song however falls flat due to the domination of the tune by loud,jarring instrumentation. The lead singers have done a good job with their rendition but the spark is clearly missing in this song. This song,in all probabilities won’t feature entirely in the movie & will be seen as a montage. So,its all upto the visuals now.

Overall,Siddharth & GV have got another winner here & GV proves one more time that he is as good as anyone when it comes to delivering melodies.

Picks : Maalai Pon Maalai,Yaaro Ivan,Ora Kannale

Verdict : GV’s best this year so far !
