1.Party With The Pei-Hiphop Tamizha,Kharesma Ravichandran
The horror film soundtrack kickstarts with a high voltage number. The song is replete with digital sequences, upbeat rhythm, eerie ghost sounds and EDM loops. Topped with the effervescent voices of Hiphop Tamizha and the quirky Kharesma Ravichandran, this one is sure to be a hit with the dance floors.
2.Maya Maya-Kailash Kher,Padmalatha
A light folkish duet is up next. Hiphop Tamizha indulges an innovative blend of orchestration containing rustic sounds as well as modern elements. The number is perfect for a listen on a trip along the roads of a village. Kailash Kher's voice has an earthy tone to it while Padmalatha's sweet voice is soulful. This track might appear as an intro song for one of the female leads. A pleasant number!
3.Poraada Poraada-Hiphop Tamizha
Hiphop Tamizha zooms back to his comfort zone with this cool number. The track progresses on a soothing tone with it's lovely lyrics, EDM sounds, electronic Nadaswaram loops and racy rhythm arrangement. Hiphop Tamizha croons like a lovestruck guy. A simple romantic number that is instantly likeable!
4.Kuchi Mittai-Anthony Daasan
This track is a typical kuthu number that is prevalent in almost all soundtracks of these days. What is surprising is that it doesn't sound like a Hiphop Tamizha number. Anthony Daasan does justice with his rendition while the rhythm is foot-tapping. But there is nothing innovative in this one and it ends up as the weakest track of the album.
5.Amma (Amman Song)-Hiphop Tamizha,Malathi Lakshman,Anthony Daasan
Kollywood has seen lots of Amman songs in the past. But listening to one after a long time is refreshing. It's a challenge for Hiphop Tamizha to compose this number, but it ends up as a good product with the powerful vocals of Malathi Lakshman and some energetic devotional beats. This track may appear towards the end of the climax and might scorch the screens with its visuals.
6.Aranmanai 2 Theme-Instrumental
The theme of Aranmanai 2 begins like a typical horror theme with eerie humming and the haunting sounds of rocking chairs. But soon it veers off into some screeching rock mix and once again falls into the horror category with the ghostly humming. Overall, the theme stays true to the genre of the movie.
Though there is nothing much to experiment in this album, Hiphop Tamizha does a fair job in composing a good genre-specific soundtrack.
