When there are such Kingpins of showbiz involved that goes with Shankar, AR Rahman, Vikram and P.C. Sriram involved, things are so much delighting for the music lovers here with different flavours of emotions embedded with new genre of music.

1. Mersalaayitten
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Neeti Mohan
Lyrics: Kabilan


The album opens with a celebrative spell by Anirudh and AR Rahman has exactly punched the track with a voice that would suit it to the core. He has distinctly analysed that Anirudh has been the latest youth sensation and has roped him in for this track. To be precise, right from beginning till the end, there is so much of irresistible energy flowing throughout the song. The song was released a day before the official launch and now it has almost created a viral music fever across the towns.

2. Ennodu Nee Irundhaal
Singers: Sid Sriram, Sunitha Sarathy
Lyrics: Kabilan


Sid Sriram takes you across the mazes of octaves and the way he shifts easily through them is a magical gift that he is bestowed with. The rhythmic approach on the guitars accompanying his sassy voice that is delivered in a sustained style is awesome. This song is sure to make you strongly fall in love with it.

3. Ladio
Singers: Nikita Gandhi
Lyrics: Karky


What if Lady Gaga comes to render a Tamil song and this would be the obvious picture. Nikita Gandhi exerts her best on top of pitch and in many places leaves you in huge surprise. AR Rahman picks up a voice that sounds so international and if performed Live across any part of the world, it would turn even the non-Tamil fans crazy about this track.

4. Pookkalae Sattru Oyivedungal
Singers: Haricharan & Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Karky


The album is so much balanced between western fever and paradisiacal melodies. Pookkalae Sattru Oyivedungal is bliss to the senses. Apart from the versatile singers like Haricharan and Shreya Ghoshal offer the pronunciation of lines with elegance and even the small and minute detailing of this song is done with perfection.

5. Aila Ala
Singers: Aditya Rao & Natalie Di Luccio
Lyrics: Karky


The first few lines of this song has a punch of opening later followed by some loud music. The lyrics doesn’t get little clarity during the course due to some heavy music, but as the time proceeds, it will win a good position in the charts and with the mind-boggling visuals, things will be a great magic on the screens.

6. Ennodu Nee Irundhaal (Reprise)
Singers: Sid Sriram, Chinmayi
Lyrics: Kabilan


While Sid Sriram dominated with an unbreakable glass like voice leaving you so much in awe, Chinmayi tries to have her cup of acclaim with the reprised version of Ennodu Nee Irundhal. No doubt! She makes the things fall right in places, especially look out for the first stanza, where she bestows the song with best appeal.

7. Mersalaayitten (Remix)
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Neeti Mohan
Lyrics: Kabilan


To end with, the album of ‘I’ offers a wholesome treat to the young bunch and you cannot stop listening to this track. AR Rahman showcases his proficiency as a sound engineer with the plethora of creative spell between the lines and on rhythmic accompaniment.

Overall, the album ‘I’ defines the new age of music. AR Rahman is always known for transforming himself into the subject of film leaving behind the previous traces and with ‘I’ scores more on the international standard. With ‘Mersalaayitten’ and ‘Ladio’ turning to be the outrageous party treat, ‘Ennodu Nee Irundhal’ and ‘Pookaley’ are sweetest melody treat. Precisely, with the masters of visual magic – Shankar and P.C. Sriram on the board, there is no doubt that Rahman’s music would have gain a huge status behind our perception on the screens.

Verdict: Too international, Desi in few places.
