The song binds you emotionally, especially if you’re in love with someone. While Shakthishree Gopalan and Dheekshitha render their songs with perfect emotions, it’s the lines penned by Uma Devi that makes it more compelling to hear it over and again.

Agayam Theepiditha
Singer: Pradeep Kumar
Lyrics: Kabilan

Pradeep Kumar is undoubtedly the silent winner in musical panorama as his songs have become a sleeper hit without any grand promotions. He has just a cool voice that can touch any octaves and yet do not lose its substantiality. The guitar works are yet another special feature here.

Voice: Gaana Bala

This song leaves everyone in abrupt silence as if you’re witnessing something over a loss. Gaana Bala has kept us entertained with his impeccable flow of fun-filled Gaana music, but this is the first time, he takes us through an emotional blow.

Suvar (Theme music)

The reason why the song is titled ‘Suvar’ (meaning ‘Wall’ in English) is because it is one of the crucial factors in the screenplay. The unique instruments are the best parts here and Santhosh much more than songs makes an impressive spell with the background score.

Madras songs diminish the usually portrayed commercialism and for the first time, we get to a clear view of plot or screenplay with these songs.

Verdict: A different one for Karthi
