Sweet moments of love begin to flourish as you hear the album of Raja Rani as GV Prakash brings in a honeyed style of Hollywood romantic-comedy musical genre. The film stars Arya and Nayanthara in lead roles with Jai and Nazriya Nazim making a cameo appearance. The album consists of 7 tracks that takes you for a trip through many genres, which indeed arrives with a top-notch quality.

Hey Baby

Singers: G.V. Prakash Kumar, Gaana Bala, Aishwarya

Lyricist: Na. Muthukumar, Gaana Bala

The album takes off with a beautiful melody that goes with a western classic style that goes with simple rythms and a breezy aroma spreads with GV Prakash and Aishwarya crooning the lines in unique style. On a sudden note, the songs shifts into the local kuthu beat of the same version with Gaana Bala striking the right chords to evoke the energy of mass audience.


Singer: Shakthishree Gopalan

Lyricist: Pa. Vijay

First thing that pulls you into the song is Shakthishree Gopalan. She holds a couple of unforgettable melody hits - Nenjukulla and Enga Pona Rasa for AR Rahman. While her other song in Irandam Ulagam is catching up with its fever, she has crooned this track, which sounds quite exceptional in its own way. Undoubtedly, the visuals by George Williams should add some intensity to the tracks.


Singers: Clinton Cerejo, Alphonse, Alka

Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

There is something about this track that features Jai and Nayanthara. The song is set in backdrops of three different arenas - City, Village and a traditional Kerala zone. GV Prakash has picked a right choice of singers and the beautification with visuals happen with the cinematography of George C Williams. And what's more appealing the beautiful looks of Nayanthara and the energetic appeal of playback singers.


Singer: Vandhana Srinivasan

Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

This is a song of small duration and yet carries a depth of intensity by Vandhana Srinivasan. The lyrical lines by Na. Muthukumar is a catchy element of this track. It sounds like this is a situational track.

Oday Oday

Singers: Vijay Prakash, Sasha, Shalmali Kholgade

Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

A fun-filled romantic song filmed with a much grandeur and Atlee picks up Shankar's style here of erecting the best sets with creative ideas. The song passes through different phase of backdrops just like Chillena as Arya-Nazriya will be seen in Rock-n-Roll, rural and peppy style of music. But the lyrical lines doesn't cross beyond the usual paradigm of Pa. Vijay.

Imaye Imaye

Singers: GV Prakash Kumar, Shakthishree Gopalan

Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

This is a soul-stirring track that keeps you transfixed with an emotional appeal. It carries a strong feel of souls pondering for the love. Hats off to GV Prakash and Shakthishree Gopalan for a mind-boggling performance as they distinctly let us envisage the feel with their rendition. Not to miss the orchestral work in the backdrops that enhances the song to a greater mangnitude.

A Love For Life

Performed by G.V. Prakash Kumar, Navin Iyer, Chennai Symphony

There is something about this mellisonant tune. It shifts your soul to different worlds within few seconds. GV Prakash had earlier attempted the same with the signature theme of Deiva Thirumagal and gets on with the same panache, but with a different approach.

Overall, the album of Raja Rani proves to be a decorous stress buster. For the next 28 minutes (approximately) you'll find gain your sangfroid with the mixed bag of enthrallment for this beautiful work of GV Prakash. Thanks to the promising music director for bringing back the celebration of love through music after a long time.

Verdict: The big fat musical wedding feast from GV Prakash
