Johnny Johnny (Friends Book)
Singers: Dhanraj Manickam, Gana Bala
Lyrics: Vetri Mahalingam

A Kolaveri-styled mish-mash track starts proceedings with a groovy rhythm sung by the composer himself- Dhanraj Manickam and Gana Bala who continues to venture into different styles.  The song is a funny take on the kindergarten rhyme with some fun and upbeat lyrics that borrows from social networking to ad campaigns. The song definitely has an infectious nature as it wanders between rap, kuthu and rock.

Naayana Osai Kaetten
Singers: Shaktisree Gopalan
Lyrics: Kabilan Vairamuthu, Vetri Mahalingam

A soothing melody from the young talented singer Shaktisree Gopalan, and the music industry’s new golden girl does it again! The lyrics are beautifully written with some really good interludes to look out for. The song surely springs a surprise with where the charming melodies wander into. The mellowed down rhythm backed by gentle pianos ebb and flow as the track quietly picks up steam at several places in the composition.

Aala Alathathu Vayasu
Singers: Padmalatha, Velmurugan
Lyrics: Kabilan Vairamuthu

A laid back track with restrained raunchiness does posses some catchy segments.  The song undoubtedly has the fun element which makes it a breezy listen! Velmurugan, known for his high energy tracks, makes the most of this opportunity where he can present himself differently. Padmalatha is effective in his company.

Sillu Sillu Mazhaiyum
Singers: Karthik
Lyrics: Kabilan Vairamuthu

A brilliant solo performance from the fantastic Karthik which irresistibly reminds the listener of ‘Kan Pesum’ from 7/G Rainbow Colony.  However, the similarity lasts only till the pallavi but the song dramatically changes from the first interlude and chugs along with a steady rhythm. There’s a hardworking string section in the backdrop which is happy to play second fiddle to the fine vocal melody.

Vennila Veettukulla
Singers: Veena Arun
Lyrics: Kabilan Vairamuthu

The fresh voice of Veena Arun joined by interesting blend of string section and piano base make up for this brief track which could well serve as the theme song of the film. While the track is pleasant on the ears, the most unique feature of the track is the singer’s voice- which carries a rustic touch.

Theme of Vennila Veedu

It is a gripping instrumental track with good blend of Violin, Piano and progressing rhythm.  Just when the track sounds quiet and gentle, a changeover with heavy drums takes over and drawing in a dramatic flute solo and smartly transitioning to a Carnatic Violin solo.

Johnny Johnny (Gold Craze)
Singers: Satya Prakash
Lyrics: Vetri Mahalingam

What was already a cheeky little tune gets more doses of humor with the gold related quips. This version features Satya Prakash’s voice with almost same orchestration.  The difference is with the singing style of Satya Prakash, a more urbane delivery along with the processed vocals. The Tamil lyrics in between is another add-on to this version giving it a different tinge.

Johnny Johnny (Karaoke Version)

The karaoke version of Johnny Johnny comes next to bring the album to a close – apparently to engage the listener to sing along this catchy track!

Verdict: A fairly good album with an interesting blend of trendy fun filled songs and melodious tracks.
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
