Music: Srikanth Deva

Machan marks the return of commercial director Sakthi Chidambaram after his last outing in 2010, Guru Sishyan. This project has Vivek, Karunas, Ramesh Aravind and Sheryl Pinto in the lead. Music is by Srikanth Deva and nearly all but one song has Sakthi Chidambaram as a lyricist.

Machaan Machaan
Singers: Srikanth Deva
Lyrics: Sakthi Chidambaram

Srikanth Deva turns singer for this album opener and he tries to sing it with an urban diction. The song employs some simple powerchords over a drum loop and also a human beatbox at one point. Sakthi Chidambaram contributes as the lyricist and comes up with lines like “friendship is the secret of my energy”.

Nanba Enna Marandhutia
Singers: Haricharan, Krishna Raj
Lyrics: Sakthi Chidambaram

An emotional tune about the loss of friendship is what the track is about. Instrumentally, the track rests on a repetitive drum loop over which vocal harmonies and string sections are added. The vocal melodies are easily identifiable almost instantly. Sakthi Chidambaram uses a direct approach rather than being overly poetic with his lyrics.

Singers: Craze, Thyagarajan
Lyrics: Sakthi Chidambaram

A typical Srikanth Deva tune that comprises all of his usual traits of a peppy folk beat over simple and unusual vocal hooks. Sakthi Chidambaram pens a whole song full of double entendres which could make it amusing and enjoyable for some, and off-putting for others.

Ennachu edhachu
Singers: Aalaap Raju
Lyrics: Arivumathi

A melodious number rendered well by Alaap Raju. The song has Srikanth Deva’s touches aplenty, be it the instantly catchy melody or the use of random murmurings to the beat of the tune. Lyricist Arivumathi gets an opportunity to contribute to this album and he’s penned some simple yet nice words.

Nanba enna
Singers: Haricharan, YNP Venkat
Lyrics: Sakthi Chidambaram

The song makes a second appearance on the album but with a change in vocal duties as YNP Venkat takes the place of Krishna Raj.

Verdict: Machaan has Srikanth Deva being totally in his elements.
