It’s been years, but we still cherish over the musical mania of ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’ that created by the beautiful team – Gautham Vasudev Menon, AR Rahman and STR are back for a new film. While VTV was a musical love story, this one seems to be an intense story of love and some action. Every song in this album likely offers soft melodies, power-packed tunes and few more newfangled elements.

Avalum Naanum
Singer: Vijay Yesudas

There is something special about this song. AR Rahman embraces a retro styled classical touch that is iced by modern instrumentals. The compiled lines of Bharathi Dasan that brings up a metaphorical essence of words like – My girl and I are like Moon and Cold, Sun and Rays… That’s so poetic and if you’re to read the song without music, you’ll fall in love with it. Vijay Yesudas’ recital we would say rather than he sings it.

Thalli Pogathey
Singers: Sid Sriram, Aaryan Dinesh Kanagaratnam & Aparna Narayanan

No words! So much of elegance, emotions and eccentric love of a chap that he keeps pondering for his girl…. Beautifully composed in terms of vocalisms, instrumentals and mixing is brilliantly significant. It’s a trademark AR Rahman that relentlessly keeps you addicted to it. Sid Sriram gives more soul to this song and not to miss the beautiful humming by Aparna by the end of this track.

Singers: Sathya Prakash & Shashaa Tirupati

Journeying with your loved ones and if you’re in need of a poetic and sweet melody, this would imbibe your souls unconditionally. It all starts off with a western panache and later shifts to the classical zone, especially the interludes before Shashaa Tirupati takes off are a honeyed treat.

Singers: Aditya Rao, Aaryan Dinesh Kanagaratnam & Sri Rascol

If you’ve assumed ‘AYM’ is all about melodies and sweetness, this song sends a heavy pump of energy and electrification into your senses. OMG! If you’re gonna set this as your alarm tone, it’s going to be a blast anytime and this is something that music directors of the entire region including some of the young so-called musicians would envy upon. AR Rahman distinctly shows that he is there to adapt the contemporary style and his music will always be up to date.

Idhu Naal
Singer: Aditya Rao & Jonita Gandhi

One more slow poison that will keep you so much adhered through the track. Especially, the vocalisms of Aditya and Jonita are so blissful. Not to miss the instrumentals and it is so evident that AR Rahman should have spent more and more quality time over getting the interludes and preludes. It’s so much beautiful and you cannot stop listening to them.

As on whole, Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada album carries 100% engagement for all music lovers…. Believing that music lovers would expect more than VTV, AR Rahman has offered a wholesome album that will be considered as one of the best albums in this decade.

Verdict : AR Rahman amalgamates breezy sweetness throughout.
