Here's the first invitation! Vaanga Makka Vaanga in all ways is likely to be the title track of the movie (or for a drama within the movie) Almost all the commonly used stage instruments like veena, tabla, mridhangam, nathaswaram are used in this number and the lyrics by Na.Muthukumar deserves a mention. This track indeed has a relatable factor that connects with the typical stage songs.
Singers: Haricharan, Shashaa Tirupati
The first sighting of Jazz! Aye Mr.Minor is a typical nostalgic throwback to the romantic duets of the 60â€™s with the instrumentation taking a back seat paving way for the singers to take control. The lyrics are easy on the ears and the usage of conga is noticeable. The way the interludes have been done akin to the yesteryear era is a nice ode. Hello Mr.Edhirkatchi 2.0!
The album's best track is here! Yaarumilla is an earthy, warm melody set to the instrumentation of neatly arranged table, flute and harmoniums. Shwetha Mohan does a commendable job with the rendition while Srinivas chips in with the humming portions. The lyrics do sound odd at the first instance but later we get to know that it is actually a letter being sung to the tune. Perfecto!
Straight out of vintage Nagesh type tracks! Sandi Kuthiraiâ€™ is a peppy, 60's type dance number right along the lines of Viswanathan Velai Vendum & Anubavi Raja Anubavi. The track simply oozes fun and the typical rock 'n' roll genre is brought back alive with some lively singing by Haricharan and by some jazz arrangements. Especially the xylophones!
The epic 8 parter! This track's runtime is a mind boggling 10:28 minutes encapsulating 8 short tracks.The initial Gettimelam (lil Ottagatha Kattiko ode here) begins with Vandhanam Vandhanam after which the song gets ready to unleash itself. Yaadhavanam is more of a lyric utterance show depicting Alli-Arjuna's love story. Alli Varugiral which follows next is relatively peppy and fun to sing along. The song shifts course for a sobered Priyasakhiye where the female voice by Bela Shende gets an introduction. Kanna Kanna has relatively colloquial lyrics and is pretty much on the lines of an Arjuna-Krishna interaction. Naan Annathooviyil is set in the similar backdrop as Idayam (from Kochadaiyaan). Gettimelam is back again - this time signaling a happy ending. Although the context is unknown, the finale of this epic â€“Nenju Porukkudhilaiye has Haricharan fittingly finishing the proceedings with an amazing rendition.
