Lingusamy and his Thirrupathi Brothers held a grand audio launch of their Paiyya at Sathyam Cinemas big screen on Sunday (November 22), at prime time 7pm.
The lead artist Karthi and Tamannaah were present along with the film’s music director Yuvan Shankar Raja. Shankar the chief guest at the function launched the audio by giving the first copy to Suriya.
Venkat Prabhu, made the evening livelier by anchoring the nearly 2 hours 35 minutes show with his wit and wisecracks. The highlight of the evening was the slick promo trailer and two songs of the film.
The trailer cut is racy and mass, sending across the message that Paiyaa is an action packed road movie with a romantic tinge. The way the trailer has been cut by editor Antony showcases Madhie’s camera and graphics and sends the message that it is a romantic action packed entertainer.
The introductory song of Karthi, a melody Thuli, Thuli Mazhai Azhariye…. sung by Haricharan and Tanvi, is eye catching and seems to have been shot in Bangalore and surrounding locations. It is a love song with touching lyrics by NA. Muthukumar, that brings about the passion in a guy for a girl he has just seen.
The second song, a rain song Adada Mazhaida…. is the sure fire chartbuster in the album sung by Rahul Nambiar and Saindhavi and is picturised on Karthi and Tamannaah in lush green locations including Athirapally waterfalls. Tammu has never looked so glamorous in itsy-bitsy clothes that hug her body, due to the rain effect. There are five songs in the album, Yuvan's best in recent times.
After that it was all speeches and those who spoke included, Suriya, Yuvan, Karthi, Tamannaah, Jayam Ravi, Silambarasan, Shankar, Hansraj Saxena, Abirami Ramanathan, RK Selvamani Parthipan, Mysskin, Balaji Sakthivel, AR Murgadoss and finally Lingusamy’s thanks giving. K Bhagyaraj who was present on the dais, did not speak.
