Velayutham, directed by M.Raja and produced
by Aascar's Ravichandran has bankable star-cast
of Vijay, Genelia and Hansika Motwani. Ever
since the humongous success of Vijay and Vijay
Antony combination in 'Vettaikaran', there
has been much hype about this project. Let’s
see if Vijay Antony can do it this time around?
Singers: Haricharan, Srimathumitha
This opening track offers colorful, cosmic
intro of the hero's brotherly affection for
his sister. Annamalai’s well conceived
verses could refer to the sibling character
as well as Vijay's fans. It delivers a strong
hero impact with the support of routine wordings
in its packaging like, 'Neenga romba naal
nalla irrukanum'. Vijay Antony has given an
impressive track which is loud yet lighter
and catchier. Haricharan's subtly vocalized
version works well, exuding a lovable monologue
for the male lead.
Singers: Prasanna, Supriya Joshi
Vijay Antony gleams out to produce a soft-folklore
composing in 'molachu' song. Distinctive from
the musical flavor of the album, it is soothing,
earthy and mature. The interesting arrangements
make wise use of catchy lyrics to churn out
an attractive listen. Prasanna and Supriya
Joshi's zealous singing can be termed as the
highlight of the song. It is one of memorable
Vijay Antony's tunes.
Singers: Karthik, Charulatha Mani
If you enjoyed , 'En Uchimandai' in Vettaikaran,
then you will be chilled by this fest. The
song is a good amalgam of peppiness and vibrant
beats with old-fashioned Bagavathar type musical
inclusions .It is a signature style kuthu
song with dancing beat from Vijay Antony.
Karthik and Charulatha Mani's tangible and
captivating vocals deliver the happy and chirpy
feel to the song.
Singers: Sangeetha Rajeshwaran
It is a trendy, dreamy song with delightful
composition. Quality singing is the hallmark
of the track and Sangeetha Rajeshwaran does
a striking rendition. The track about female
character adoring her heart-stealer, is an
engrossing number that should be going well
with listeners, and definitely deserves to
top the charts.
Singers: Vijay Antony, Veera Shankar
Lyrics: Siva Shanmugam
Here comes our mass hero introduction song.
This time around, it sounds folkish with lavish
use of thara, thapattai, thavil and urmi instruments
blended in. Vijay Antony's snazzy voice and
Veera Shankar's initial interludes packs the
required punch. With more visually appealing
aura of festive village ambience, it is bound
to entertain Vijay fans. However it unconsciously
triggers our memories of 'Nee entha ooru'
song from Thirupachi.
Singers: Vijay Antony, Mark
This hugely promoted song of the film is
the theme music that would serve as a background
score for the flick. Vijay Antony's stylized,
hi-impulse beat number will work magic on-screen
with Ilaya Thalapathi. This delirious musical
piece is composed keeping in mind the compelling
moments of the film.
Vijay Antony continues to flaunt
his success this time around with Velayutham.
The album has a bunch of entertaining soundtrack
like, 'Molachu moonu', 'Mayam Seidhayo' and
usual mass beat tracks 'Sonna Puriyadhu'
and 'Vela Vela'.
Verdict: Velayutham - Vijay
Antony's feast for Vijay fans.
