Chikku Bukku...
Vocals:
Benny Dayal, Rahul Nambiar, Maya, Sricharan
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay

A brisk dance number with a slight touch of hip-hop. Well controlled voices and rhythms make this song pass muster. Enthusiastic singing from all.

Oru Nila...
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan, Chandrayee Bhattacharya, Uma Padmanabhan
  Chikku Bukku
 
Lyrics: Valee

The song begins with a fond marriage wish- A romantic duet. What gives it a nice feel is the use of gentle tavils, tablas, piano and flute. The song seems based on Sankarabaranam scale but the flute touches upon Mohanam too. Shankar Mahadevan is delightfully subdued.

Zara Zara...

Vocals: Benny Dayal, Lavanya.
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay

Another dance number, tight knit and cheerfully rendered by both. Could climb the charts for its spunky feel. Has a slightly dated air to it.


Smile...
Vocals:
Suchith Suresan
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay
Composer: Pravin Mani

Oh, yes this song does make you smile a bit because of its ‘Old School’ music feel. Moves along at its own unhurried pace and the instrumental interludes are equally languorous too. Has the faintest touch of Gowri Manohari raga to it. Could prove chart-friendly.


Thooral Ninraalum...
Vocals:
Hariharan, Wadali Brothers
Lyrics: Valee

This song, sung with a liberal use of the Hindustani idiom, charms you with its melodic appeal. Hariharan soothes and the brothers add a nice contrast with their soaring folksy music. The flute keeps hinting at the passion behind it all

Vizhi oru Padhi...
Vocals:
Adnan Sami, Sujatha
Lyrics: Valee

Quite a sensuous number, but its effect gets diluted by Adnan Sami’s weak vocals. Just what did the composers have in mind? Sujata delights. By not touching much upon the ‘dha’ swara, the base raga Sankarabaranam here acquires a light Nalinakanthi raga touch!

Adi Saarale...
Vocals:
Pradeep Vijay, Suvi
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay

A short ditty that paints a warm cosy picture of moments of loving togetherness. Neat violins add a rosy touch.

Verdict:

For those of us who expected stuff from them on the lines of ‘Modhi Vilaiyadu’, this album is somewhat low-key. A couple of songs even sound like ad jingles. Of course there is melody and a pleasant fusion of genres here, but will these songs hit the charts? Let us wait and see.
- Songs to Watch out!
