'Vettai' marks the coming together of actor Madhavan and director Lingusamy after 'Run' (2002) and also the collaboration of Lingusamy with Yuvan Shankar Raja after their super-hit 'Paiyya'. The film revolves around two brothers and stars Madhavan, Arya, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul in the lead roles. Four days prior to the audio release, the song "Pappappa" was launched as a single track and received a great reception in Youtube. Now let’s analyze the album.

Pa Pappa Pappa Pappa...  
Singers:  Yuvan Shankar Raja, Renu
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

Its party time, as the first track of the album 'Pappa Pappa Pappapa' has all rural elements in the right place. The highlight is of course the clever mix of folksy musical arrangements that make for a good celebration number. Yuvan's fun-filled singing comes alive and is ably supported by the peppy sounding Renu.

Dham Dham Dham...
Singers: Karthik, Krish
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

The next song, 'Dham Dham' is naturally an all out boy charmer fun number that bears the stamp of Lingusamy legacy! It’s another attempt to recreate the yesteryear's hit number 'Theradi Veethiyil' from Run. The mellifluous voice of Karthik and Krish make the mood merrier in this quite pleasant sounding number.

Kattipidi Enna...  
Singers: Vijay Prakash, Shwetha Pandit
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

With simple musical composition and filmy predictable lyrics, Yuvan has managed to create this charming love song. The lovely vocals of Vijay Prakash and Shwetha Pandit are just soothing, especially Vijay Prakash who croons his heart out. Another decent pick that is worth listening to.

Thaiyath Thakka...
Singers: Harini, Saindhavi
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar 

After the boys outing number in 'Dham dham', it’s the girls turn in 'Thaiyya Thakka'. It is a cool, effortless soundtrack composed between two sisters in their search for a perfect groom which piles up for a reasonable sounding entertainer. As far as the composition is concerned, it comes like a mix and match of sweet folksy tune wrapped in a mild kuthu. Saindhavi's suave singing with Harini's minty fresh vocals establish the lovable chemistry between the two sisters.

Dhama Dhama...  
Singers: Haricharan, Swetha Mohan
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar 

A gentle flute, easy percussions, singers Haricharan-Sheweta Mohan playing the perfect foil and Na.Muthukumar's uncomplicated lyrics complete the song. But the highlight is the 'Vaaranam aayiram' piece.

Vettai has some peppy likeable soundtracks to its credits. Even if it’s not Yuvan's best, Vettai packages all genres of folksy music well. With songs like 'Pappa Pappa' and the romantic 'Kattipudi', the album is all set to turn out to be a commercial winner.

Verdict: Yuvan's folky affair!
