Neelangaryil (Version 1)
Singers: Karthik, Shreya Ghoshal
The album begins with a breezy melody sung by Karthik and Shreya Ghoshal at their usual best. The prelude starts off in Sindhu Bhairavi and lends it hands to Charukesi. Raghunanthan proves yet again , that he can blow your mind with his arrangements. Since it borrows the rhythm loop of ‘Kan Pesum’, doesn’t mean ,there is replication. This one is a way different.
Neelangarayil (Version 2)
Singers: Karthik, Saindhavi
An alter version with a turn-in of Saindhavi to do the vocals , while Karthik gets retained . Rest of the song remain the same with no change. This one too , is appealing.
Singers: Anitha, Haricharan
A casual catchy number comes with perfectly-suited-for-the-song vocals by Haricharan and Anitha. The music by the composer is defined and rhythmic throughout the composition with some nadaswaram and classical guitar additions. Lyrics too , are interesting and automatically allows you to notice it.
Singers: Madhu Balakrishnan
An aggressive number set in Mayamalagowla , performed by Madhu Balakrishnan is a good one , but after a few listens ,turns out monotonous , with a few plus points. However , the composition and the lyrics are effective in reflecting the mood needed.
Singers: Raina Reddy, Tippu
Lyrics: Madan Karky
The tracks starts off with a racy house rhythm with a hidden bhangra beats. The singers get to the song instantly with no break. Nothing attractive comes from the lyrics and it’s a surprise in the case of Karky , being the lyricist. A dance number, that struggles to get hold onto one’s mind.
Singers: Harihara Sudhan
Harihara Sudhan gets a melody , finally to show some difference from the rest of his songs and does a a great
job , down the low registers. Instead of going on a vigour mood to show the emotions , there is very minimal music attack and that’s a
value add. Here,
Suddhadhanyaasi is used in a conserved manner.
Picks of the album

Bottomline – N.R. Raghunandan is one of the expected composers in the recent times , keeping in mind his consistent record of atleast delivering two or three acceptable songs. He gives the same output for a medium budget film too and carries the success flag, exactly one place below the word “excellent”. Surely ,this tiger-tail is a wholistic one, except for a few greys.
