For the first time, D Imman comes up composing tracks for Jeyam Ravi and Hansika Motwani in ‘Romeo Juliet’. The album has 10 tracks that come with a package of 5 songs, a reprised version and remaining with karaoke versions.

Singer: Anthony Dasan
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

Madhan Karky is always known for adding some innovative words to the songs. Although, it’s a folk Kuthu number that centers on a guy’s pathos in boozed mode on yelling at his girlfriend and love failure. Anthony Dasan has always been a special favourite of D Imman and this combo works the best here.

Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Sunitha Sarathy
Lyrics: Thamarai

Romantic duets always find poignancy with the lyrical lines of Thamarai and this one isn’t an exception. The singers Vishal Dadlani and Sunitha Sarathy offer a beautiful rendition, but what makes this song more special is the instrumental accompaniments, especially the flute during interludes is beautifully done. But if any prominent Tamil singer had crooned instead of Vishal Dadlani, it would have been more decorous. The reprised version with complete song rendered by Sunitha Saarathy is worthy of appreciations.

Singer: Anirudh Ravichander
Lyrics: G. Rokesh

From the same lyricist Rokesh, who made a stunning debut with Chartbuster ‘Danga Maari’, here comes the most sensational ‘Dandanakka’ that has been already making a huge buzz with single track release. The song has certain funny elements of TR’s original speeches complied in synch mode to the song. It’s already a hit and with the choreography, it would be a commendable track in the career of Jayam Ravi, as he didn’t have any big Chartbuster hits for a very long time.

Idharkuthaane Aasaipattai
Singer: Vaikom Vijayalakshmi
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

She’s is a much blessed singer and has already turned the global spotlights for her fabulous numbers in Malayalam and in Tamil as well, especially in ‘Celluloid’. Vaikom Rajalakshmi goes for a change crooning a sassy Jazz number and D Imman deserves all praises for trying something different. The strings and chords in the accompaniment are brilliantly composed. But the vocalizing style of this genius singer is wasted. Please music directors don’t try to encompass this gifted singer with unwanted genres.

Romeo Romeo
Singer: Vishal Dadlani, Hyde Karty
Lyrics: Madhan Karky

A party song that gets a hype with the intonation of Vishal Dadlani and Hyde Karty. Sounds like an introduction song for Jayam Ravi and the rap lines in the interludes is good in places.

This is not the best of D Imman as when compared to the previous albums, this one rarely has some catchy numbers, but for Jayam Ravi, it’s a good one as the actor didn’t have any big albums that carried hit tracks. For now, it’s Arakki, Dandanakka and Thoovanam that make a best impression.

Verdict: Not the best of D Imman, but okay
