A nice melody song Parakirren Naan is love and lust lyrics from Madhan Karky. 5 minutes song has guitars & flute touches make the song feels like more love melody. Srinivas’s classical voice and Maria Kavitha Thomas’s magic voice adds the song stronger in lines. let’s wait and watch in the screen how does the combo of Vijay Sethupathi & Gayathrie work in visuals.
Again a magic voice from Maria Kavitha Thomas with Madhan Karky’s lyrics, music director likes girls voice over male voice that really works well. 4 minutes and 18 seconds full-length song have jazz and beat in it, classical touches from the middle. Sam rocks once in the album and this song receives a mixed response from the critics.
This is also a 4 minutes and 18 seconds length song and it was sung by Andrea Jeremiah. It is an another lady voice pick from Sam, A slow song with humming voice by Andrea clearly it is a different version of Lola. Madhan Karky wrote the lyrics with energetic and enjoyable lines.
This is another melody from Sam that starts with Violin touches, it shows Sam is brilliant in his way. Also, Sam wrote the lyrics while Haricharan & Shreya Ghosal sung the song. 5 minutes length song has its bass and jazz with Shreya Ghosal’s lovely voice and Haricharan classical voice. A notable trademark for Sam’s music with a different kind of attitude.
An old title named Mellisai theme song sung by Chennai Orchestra and lyrics wrote by Vishnupriya Ravi. A slow start, heavy beats, sad violin portion and interesting Jazz within 3 minutes and 17 seconds theme song. This one is different from Sam, he uses to finish the theme in grand symphony style.
