Move Your Body
Singer: Ilayaraja
Lyrics: Dhanush

Vai Raja Vai has been making all the right noises thanks to an impressive teaser and the hilarious bloopers video.

For starters, Vai Raja Vai is the second directorial venture of Aishwarya Dhanush following ‘3’ and it stars Gautham Karthik, Priya Anand, Taapsee Pannu, Vasanth, Vivek and many others and has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. 

After the phenomenal musical success of ‘3’, a lot is riding on the shoulders of the team to deliver another rocking album. The team recently launched the first single ‘Move Your Body’ set to the tunes of Yuvan, lyrics of Dhanush and sung by the Maestro Ilayaraja. 

Move Your Body is a typical party track which features Ilayaraja’s voice that has been completely processed. The whole auto-tuning defeats the purpose of roping in a legend to sing. The song’s lyrics depict a similar situation to that of Ilayaraja’s yesteryear hit ‘Raja Rajathi Raja’. (Agninakshatram) 

The song appears flat at the first instance but on repeated hearing indeed grabs the listener’s attention. The tune is tailor-made for someone like Dhanush to sing but making Ilayaraja render it, ups the ante. ‘Move Your Body’  has given us a real peep into the flavor of the album and one is intrigued enough to find out how the remaining tracks have turned out. Repeated listening does the trick!

Rating: 3/5
