Karuthanvanlaam Galeejaam: Singer – Anirudh
A fiery kuthu song from Anirudh and Viveka, where the lyrics fit into the foot-tapping kuthu beats with style. While Anirudh should be lauded for his local crooning manner, the real star of the song is Viveka who manages to catch your attention with witty lines. Hit guaranteed, our PICK.
Iraiva: Singers – Anirudh, Jonita Gandhi
Very innovative two-faced track from Anirudh, which takes a wondrous turn midway. The composer doubles up as a fantastic singer here, keeping it calm for most parts and upping the ante when required. Jonita too offers great support, here’s our next PICK.
Vaa Velaikkara: Singers – Shaktisree Gopalan, Anirudh
Shaktisree and Anirudh create a promising buildup to the high point, but the hook is too normal for the composer’s standards. Overall, a decent track that doesn’t quite go the long way.
Idhayane: Singers – Neeti Mohan, Anirudh
Beautiful is the word. Anirudh unleashes a heavenly tune and gives good support to Neeti Mohan, who makes sure her style and pronunciation does not hammer the uplifting feel of the song. Undoubtedly, the best of the lot. Our PICK.
Ezhu Velaikkara: Singers – Siddharth Mahadevan, Anirudh
An inspirational, high spirited track that kicks in a terrific ‘Poraadu’ theme at the background that really helps bring about the excitement. With respective situations in the film, this one will fly high.
