Thaana Serndha Koottam
Engae Endru Povathu
Stable, well-constructed soundtrack.
TSK shows that Anirudh has changed his approached towards commercial soundtracks, and has learnt to balance the fun and the fire. It may not be downright innovative, but sure has something in it to connect with the audiences. Bring on some solid visuals and watch the flowers bloom bright.
Cast: Suriya, Keerthy Suresh
Director: Vignesh ShivN
Label: Sony Music
Naana Thaana: Singers – Anirudh
Anirudh tries to concoct a casual love song with lots of musings and pauses, and the end result is an acceptable number that works within it’s boundaries. The ‘Adiye Munnala Porava’ hook is the most enjoyable aspect of the song, and makes you wait for it. Our Pick.
Sodakku: Singer – Anthony Daasan
A super peppy, energetic track that smartly sends out lines about unemployment and such. Picking up Anthony Daasan to croon the song has become a masterstroke, and that’s how it becomes our PICK.
Peela Peela: Singers – Nakash Aziz, Mali
Though the song is something that clearly caters to the kids, what makes it special is Mali’s vocals that sound unique and special. Vignesh Shivn’s lyrics pay tribute to retro usages like Ujala, Nirma, Poppins and Kawasaki – a commendable job.
Thaana Serndha Koottam: Singers – Anirudh, Vignesh Shivn
With mischievous intents, Anirudh sends out another light rock fusion that has Vignesh Shivn on the mic as well. The chorus packed with kids has something positive about it, with colorful visuals it should click onscreen.
Engae Endru Povathu: Singers – Anirudh, Shaktisree Gopalan
What an impactful, thought-provoking song that immediately moves you. Thamarai stamps her class all over it with her distinctive lyrics which are wonderfully sung by Anirudh, who also uses Shaktisree’s vocals very well. It’s a checkmate from the team to save this song for last, and wouldn’t have to work hard to earn claps if they are going to end the film with this. One of the composer’s best songs in his career, I’m saying it without second thoughts. Our PICK.
