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.
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

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.
