Never Give Up
AK Theme Music
Stylish, smashing soundtrack!
Summary : Kudos to Anirudh for cracking new grounds with Vivegam, undoubtedly his most musically worldwide soundtrack till date. The songs do have an international feel as the team claims, boasting of style all through. If the film offers even half of the support that the music brings to the fore, we are in for a blockbuster.
Cast: Ajith Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal, Akshara Haasan
Lyrics: Kabilan Vairamuthu, Vivekha, Yogi B, Siva & Raja Kumari
Label: Sony Music
Surviva: Singers – Anirudh, Yogi B, Mali Manoj
A fantastic, upbeat rap number which is handled superbly by Yogi B. After the halfway mark, the song reaches an all new level and scores as an instant chartbuster. Our PICK.
Thalai Viduthalai: Singers – Anirudh & Harish Swaminathan
Motivational pump up track with a very addictive Hoo-Haa beat. Anirudh and Harish Swaminathan join hands to form a perfect chorus to match the song’s energy. Our next PICK.
Kadhalaada: Singers – Pradeep Kumar & Shashaa Tirupati
Anirudh who has been on an electric mode in the first two songs tones down to a beautifully composed melody with a strong classical touch. The violins and the vocals combine wonderfully here to end up as a winner. Our PICK.
Veriyera: Singers – MM Manasi, Poorvi Koutish
MM Manasi does her part with audacity in this powerful track which has no shortage of a heroic sound, when it comes to the hook. With this kind of stock in hand, the team is bound to unveil terrific visuals.
Never Give Up: Singers – Anirudh, Raja Kumari
Holding us in a pleasant surprise, Anirudh brings forward an extremely stylish Bond-like song as the title track of the film. Rajakumari sounds like a talent to watch out for, and the composer’s background score is worthy enough to complement her diction. Another PICK.
Kadhalaada Reprise: Singers – Anirudh, Shashaa Tirupati, Narmatha, Pooja
A shorter version of the third track, with more ethnic instruments coming in. Anirudh makes sure the vocal side is flawless, and that is the song’s takeaway.
AK Theme Music (Ready to Rage)
A simple mix of a string tune and a racy rock backdrop, to a satisfactory result. Should go well with Ajith’s onscreen charisma.
Vivegam Songs Review Rating: 4/5
