Don't You Mess With Me
A rushed outing
After a set of mesmerizing tunes in Naanum Rowdy Dhan, Anirudh delivers a plastic album which has traits of the other extreme. Talented vocalists such as Shaktisree, Vishal Dadlani and Baadshah have little off nought to do in this soundtrack, which will thrive on the visuals to take it further. Altogether, Vedalam is a reasonably disappointing soundtrack which impresses in parts.

Label: Sony Music
Veera Vinayaka: Singers – Anirudh, Vishal Dadlani
Anirudh makes use of the routine beat which ushers with songs in the devotional genre. The indifferent vocal organization doesn’t work in its favor either.
Don’t You Mess With Me: Singers – Shruti Hassan, Shaktisree
An EDM background which instantly reminds you of a dozen English songs, forms the base. Shruti’s rendition is perhaps the main takeaway from this passable number. Our PICK!
Uyir Nadhi: Singers – Ravishankar
Quite a moving song which is high on lyrical quality. Though Ravishankar may not be the go-to man for this, it clicks on the whole to turn out to be our PICK of the album.
Theri Theme: Singer – Anirudh
Anirudh’s strength for his theme tracks have always been the catchy tune and the presence of an absorbing string bit. Those factors are nowhere to be seen here, with a dubstep based score which just hits par.
Aaluma Doluma: Singers – Anirudh, Baadshah
Loud kuthu beat which gets infuriatingly repetitive after a while. Lokesh’s lyrics bring about a whiff of relief into this track which will bank on the visuals for mileage.
