1.Oh Oh (The First Love of Tamizh)-Dhanush,Nikhita Gandhi,Anirudh
A breezy soft rock track opens this romantic album. The exuberant guitar strums are predominant throughout the number. Dhanush's vocals are effervescent and he sounds much like Yuvan. Though Nikhita's sultry rendition is pleasant to listen to, her voice is overshadowed by the orchestration and the upbeat rhythm. The entire song has a global feel to it, especially the symphony arrangement in the interlude pulls it off well. Highly engaging!
2.Enna Solla (The New Life of Tamizh)-Shweta Mohan,Anirudh
There is that one melody in every Anirudh album that would instantly hook on the listeners and stick to them forever. This is one such number. Anirudh weaves the most easily accessible tune and lends it with beautiful touches of Kanjira. The modulated flute section along with the jubilant strings in the interlude have his stamp on it. But it is Shweta Mohan who steals the entire show. Her baby-like voice sounds sweet and she emotes well, provided the lyrics are heart-touching. Hit the repeat button!
3.Tak Bak (The Tak Bak of Tamizh)-Anirudh
Here comes the funniest and the most enjoyable track of the album. With some fabulous trumpets, horns and string sections, this song is sure to go down well with the urban youngsters. Anirudh excels in his modulated rendition. Though there is no changeover in the tune, it can be enjoyed as long as it lasts. Might do well along with the visuals.
4.Jodi Nilave-Dhanush,Shweta Mohan,Anirudh
Shweta Mohan gets another winner in the form of this Ilaiyaraaja-ish melody. Her haunting voice takes the listeners through various emotions. The melting piano base and the chord progression remind of Anirudh's works in VIP. But the comparison ends there, as the song is scintillating and stirs the soul with its pleasantness. Dhanush too does a wonderful job in crooning his part with passion. Melodiously addictive!
Anirudh does magic once again after Naanum Rowdy Dhaan. This short feel-good album is replete with melodies, sans the stereotyped Anirudh's commercial songs.
