1.Naan Maatti Konden-Karthik

Beginning with ebullient guitar strums, this breezy solo sung by Karthik is fresh and engaging right from the start. It is a tailor-made number for Karthik who croons with elan. Gopi Sunder composes a likeable tune which flows easily along with Madhan Karky's heartwarming lyrics. The interesting string progression in the background adds beauty to the track. A charming song!

2.Para Parappa Oru Ooru-Ranjith

After a soulful melody, the album changes gears with this hardcore rock number. This track is all about the city Bangalore and how the lead characters enjoy roaming around. Gopi Sunder indulges a steady progression of rock along with groovy drum beats and screeching guitar strums. Ranjith thoroughly enjoys himself while rendering his lines as it is evident from his voice.

3.Aaga Motham Ennai-Gopi Sunder

Yet another fresh and breezy number makes its way into the album. This track is peppered with interesting interludes which has a combo of violin and mandolin. The drumming in the background peps up the lovable tune and Gopi Sunder does justice with his velvety rendition. The entire song has a countryside feel which makes it utterly enjoyable. Lovely one!

4.Thodakkam Mangalyam-Vijay Yesudhas,Sachin Warrier,Divya S.Menon

Gopi Sunder retains this chartbuster wedding song from the Malayalam version. And the surprise is that it is equally fantastic and colorful in this version too. There is no change in the tune, even the same ensemble of singers croon the number. The only difference is the lyrics which is penned to perfection by Pazhani Bharati. Get to enjoy a sumptuous wedding feast with this track!

5.En Vizhiyin Kanavu-Anna Katharina Valayil Chandy,Gopi Sunder

Gopi Sunder has taken the right decision to reuse the Malayalam tune for the most soul-stirring number of the album. Filled with live plucked guitar strums, this unplugged melody is honey to the ears as long as it lasts. Anna Katharina Valayil Chandy's whispery rendition is the icing on the cake which permeates the serenity of the tune and she is amply supported by Gopi Sunder. Just close your eyes and revel in this one!

6.I Want To Fly-Anna Katharina Valayil Chandy

Sung sensuously by Anna Katharina Valayil Chandy, this montage song sequence is brilliantly composed by Gopi Sunder. With lilting piano notes, this short number is engaging and the English lyrics are passionate. A fitting finale to the soundtrack.

Verdict:

Award winning composer Gopi Sunder delivers a feel-good album with Bangalore Naatkal. The soundtrack is enthralling with its heartwarming and fresh melodies.

Rating: ***3/4
