Arrambam Music Review

Arrambam music review

It's been a year after Billa-2, Ajith fans celebrated the musical feast of their matinee-idol and the day finally arrives now. The audio launch of Arrambam is celebrated in grandeur across the town and we bring you the first exclusive music review of Yuvan Shankar Raja's composition. The film is directed by Vishnuvardhan and is produced by Sri Sathya Movies. The film stars Ajith Kumar, Arya, Nayantara and Taapsee in lead roles with Kishore and Atul Kulkarni playing important roles.

Adada Arrambame
Singers: Shankar Mahadevan
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay
The fans can have a big bash with the mass opening of their Thala. The overpowering voice of Shankar Mahadevan and the big monstrous beats of Bhangra style is a special treat. We will have to wait and watch out for more on the screens as the result depends on Ajith Kumar's presentation.

Hare Rama
Singers: Tanvi Shah, Shakthishree Gopalan
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay
It's a trendy track crooned by a couple of singers, who have been rendering songs in contrast of genre. Tanvi Shah and Shakthishree Gopalan appeal to our senses with their intonations. Yuvan Shankar Raja tries to borrow the 'Arabic congo' for the musical accompaniment and the sound effects you find as fill-ins make it more appealing. The lyrics by Pa. Vijay is quite mediocre, but Yuvan's composition and the singers diminish this trait.

Melala Vedikkudhu
Singers: Vijay Yesudas, K.G. Ranjith and Swetha Mohan
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay
Celebrate the colours of Holi that blends with the theme of friendship. Pa. Vijay has tried exerting his best in giving the best lyrics on it. Yuvan's choice of Vijay Yesudas, K.G. Ranjith and Swetha Mohan stands out as the major attraction. What makes this track quite different from other numbers in the album is a strong clarity stressed on lyrics and voices. Of course, there is a lot of space to the instrumentals during interludes and the percussions are catchy as well. The song is filmed on Ajith Kumar, Rana Daggubati and Nayantara.

En Fuse Pochu
Singers: Karthik, N.S.K. Ramya
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay
The accordian during the prelude is worthy of appreciations and there's a surprise - Karthik shifting his paradigm and trying out a new style. But the lyrical lines by Pa. Vijay is so ordinary that it doesn't attract the listeners. Again, Yuvan's attempt to decorate with music helps the track from sinking halfway. It is a guy's proposal to his gal that seems to be flirting in few ways.

Stylish Thamizhachi
Singers: M.M.Manasi, Rubba Bend, Psycho Unit
In the recent times, Yuvan Shankar Raja has been making a big show in collaboration with Psycho Unit. Following the stunning track of 'Run For Your Life' in Biriyani, this one makes a sweep with spellbinding vocalim and stylish composition. Well, the visuals should add more intensity to the song.

It looks like Vishnuvardhan has planned for songs that are cool and refreshing since the film might be set in backdrops of serious plot. If so, there's nothing to worry about the middling lyrics by Pa. Vijay. Overall, Yuvan Shankar Raja makes a clean sweep with his musical spell. Especially, the tracks 'Melala Vedikudhu' and 'Stylish Thamizhachi' are instant hits and the rest may take some time to brew up.

Verdict: Doesn't surpass 'Mankatha' & 'Billa-2', but different in style.
