Eena Meena Teeka
Dub Theri Step
Acceptable, accessible soundtrack
Though Theri lacks variety with three kuthu songs under its belt, it has enough in it to go places with the help of the visuals. GVP's 50th album doesn't break barriers as he would wish to, but it surely cracks up a celebration which is round the corner. The melodies easily override the weary dance tracks, and that's where the fun in Theri lies.
Cast: Vijay, Samantha, Amy Jackson
Music: GV Prakash
Lyrics: Rokesh, Na Muthukumar, Pa Vijay, Kabilan, Pulavar Pulamaipithan, Arunraja Kamaraj, R Thiyagarajan
Label: Think Music
Jithu Jilladi – Singers: Deva, Balachandran
After a superb start, the song goes haywire with its flooring set on two levels. The horn sounds the tune pretty much cross out the lyrics and a slightly inappropriate Deva inclusion. Nevertheless, the visuals would save this, making it a celebration for the fans.
Chellaakutty – Singers: Vijay, Neethi Mohan
Vijay here, is undoubtedly the sailor who pumps up the ante with his effortless, cute vocals. It is awesome as to how he adds a new color to every word, lighting up this otherwise plain track.
Eena Meena Teeka – Singers: Uthara Unni Krishnan, GV Prakash
Here comes our PICK of the album, where Uthra Unnikrishnan and GVP himself come forward to croon a catchy, expressive rhyme. The interludes too, are mischievously enjoyable, this is probably the best in the album.
Thaimai – Bombay Jayashri
Held high by Bombay Jayashree, Thaimai is a pleasant number with a different second half, where GVP plays around to experiment.
En Jeevan – Singers: Hariharan, Saindhavi, Vaikom Vijaylakshmi
Saindhavi’s songs in GVP’s albums have always been special. With Hariharan for company here, the trio deliver a lilting melody which is honey to the ears. Another PICK.
Raangu – Singers: T Rajendar, GV Prakash, Sonu Kakkar
An uninteresting, unwanted dance number which fails to impress despite the TR tag. This just might affect the flow of the movie.
Dub Theri Step – Singer: Arunraja Kamaraj
GVP loves his dubstep, and leaves no stone unturned here to churn out a tantalizing theme track for the film. Set to racy action blocks, this should be a treat on screen.
