Album Analysis
Kalyana Vayasu
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander
Lyrics: Sivakarthikeyan
Is there a song that is more popular than this one currently? ‘Kalyana Vayasu’ has developed its own brand of followers now ever since it got released as a single. Yogi Babu’s antics coupled with a peppy, foot-tapping Anirudh rendition has made this song a chartbuster already. The lyrics are plain trough but that has been compensated with a highly entertaining picturization. 

Singers: Sean Roldan, Gautham Vasudev Menon
Lyrics: Vivek & Gautham Vasudev Menon
An instantly likeable song. Sean Roldan’s coarse rendition adds so many layers to the tune. What a combination these two are turning out to be! (throwback to Naanum Rowdy Thaan). Gautham Menon chips in with a voiceover in his very own quintessential style. The tune slowly builds up momentum and when Sean Roldan lets it loose when the tune hits the crescendo, the impact is wonderful. 

Orey Oru
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Jonita Gandhi
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivn
We have heard Anirudh try his hand at minimalistic arrangements & deliver soothing tunes in the past. ‘Orey Oru’ is a leaf out of the same book. The song has an acoustic guitar backing & the mild strumming guides the tune which plays out like a ‘meet-cute’ exchange between the leads. Jonita Gandhi is in terrific form here & accompanies the idiosyncrasies of Anirudh. A special call out to Vignesh Shivn for the lyrics too. Soothing!

Kabiskabaa Coco
Singers: Arunraja Kamaraj
When was the last time you heard a complete gibberish track played to the gallery? (Probably, the one that was in Nandhalala’s album). ‘Kabiskabaa Coco’ has an influx of immense amount of energy and wackiness thrown into it. The song has been made with the intention to entertain the listeners and this track does it. Effortlessly!

Thittam Poda Theriyala
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivn
Signature Anirudh! ‘Thittam Poda’ plays out so melodiously pleasant that it triumphs every other track in the album. Anirudh’s rendition goes hand in hand with the foot tapping tune that ups its ante when it reaches the hook line. The instrumentalization and arrangements sound so foiled and beautiful to listen to. Best track of the album!

Gun-In Kadhal
Singers: Vijay Yesudas, Arunraja Kamaraj
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivn
A song to be played in the parties! It is very clear from the beginning of the track that the emphasis is not on the ‘feel’ factor but very much on synthesizers and the familiar club samples. Vijay Yesudas’s vocals in a song centred around the club setting is a very unique choice. Not a bad song but definitely not up there with some of the other tracks in the album!

With this album, Anirudh has played around his entire range & has delivered comprehensively and effectively. This soundtrack is going to turn out to be a great boost to the movie. With impressive tracks like Kalyana Vayasu, Edhuvaraiyo, Thittam Poda & Orey Oru, Anirudh has delivered an absolute package!

Picks from the album: Edhuvaraiyo, Kalyana Vayasu, Orey Oru, Thittam Poda
Album Verdict: A cracker of an album!
Album Rating: 4/5
