The album starts with a musically and lyrically inspirational “Chitirai Nila” rendered soulfully by Vijay Yesudas. It’s the genesis, a great start to the album. The song is irrefutably positive, thanks to the enlightening lyrics by Vairamuthu.
Wow, we have another Aaromalesque song from Rahman. The tone of “Adiye” is almost preposterous, in a good way, obviously. The song is one of the most alluring songs of the album, personally. The song is crooned faithfully by Sid Sriram, an amazing talent. Proof, as soon as the album released Sid Sriram was trending on twitter, enough said. Two thumps up!!
A heart-warming tune almost an instant classic, you might presume that it’s another simple melody, wait, listen again. The instrumentation is nominal yet magical. Vocals by Abhay Jodhpukar and Harini are serene, to foster into a soulful melody. In classic Rahman style, the song culminates with an impulsive duet.
You will only like the song more!
PS: AR Rahman’s voice is only a scrumptious icing on the cake.
A light hearted country song, it immediately gets you on the feat. Rahman’s rendition is reminiscent of the “Mustafa”, “Urvasi” days. The tune is explicitly carefree and so is the befitting lyric by Karky. Elay Keechan, a joyous song, which is sure to rock.
The grandeur of this religious song is inimitable. The chorus is instantaneously mesmerising, I found myself humming the chorus after the first listen. I wish all songs sung in the church were as good. Rahman effortlessly pulls off a grand chorus piece. Anbin Vasale, another elevated tune from Rahman.
Magudi Magudi, I never liked the idea. I mean a song like this in Kadal seemed implausible. However, I see myself liking it involuntarily. A foot tapping number like ‘Dol Dol’ from “Ayutha Ezhuthu” electrifying and galloping beats dominates this song. Looking forward to the clubs rocking with M-A-G-U-D-I!
Verdict: In Hollywood style, Rahman undoubtedly delivers “the” album of the year at the eleven hour.
