Cast: Vishal, Arjun, Samantha 
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja 
Direction: P.S Mithran 
Track Analysis: Yaar Ivan 
Singer: Kaber Vasuki 
Lyrics: Kaber Vasuki

‘Yaar Ivan’ plays out a haunting, psychedelic track which is pretty rare for a Tamil album. There are quite a number of interesting elements in the song – like the lyrics which give us a glimpse about the characterisation. The arrangements are trance like during the interludes (thanks to synthesizers & beat boxes). However, the vocals by Kaber Vasuki (especially the pallavi) do establish an intrigue through the aforementioned psychedelic instrumentations. The move to release this number as a single somehow puzzles as this is not particularly a crowd-pleasing number.

Track Verdict: An interesting yet underwhelming number!
Track Rating: 2.5/5
