Bang Bang Bang (4.5/5) : The saving grace of the album. Oh! Did I just indirectly give a hint that the rest of the album is very mediocre right at the beginning? Yes, I did. And that is sadly true. We thought and hoped Yuvan would be back with a BANG with this album as it holds heavy names like Suriya , Lingusamy and Samantha. But he gave the Bang in only one song apparently. We are not blaming him here ofcourse. Everyone goes through phases and this is not a good one for Yuvan. We all are waiting for the Paiyaa phase to return.
But anyways , talking about the song – it looks like a intro song but with a classy twist. Just like how Karka Karka was a classy boost in Vettaiyadu Vilayadu. Suriya and Vidyut Jamwal are adorable together. Afters seeing Vidyut with a grumpy face all through Thuppaki, seeing him smile is like, aww 😀 Ranjith has mesmerized as always.
Oru Kan Jaadai (2/5) is an attempt at fast romantic number. Is just okay. Nothin to specify there. Benny Dayal wasted.
Ek Do Teen (3.5/5) is a descent song with a catchy tune. That kind of music that gets easily struck in your head all day long. But I got to see the vedio of the song (which is ofcourse taken down from youtube now ) and the choreography sucked. It literally sucks the energy outta you. That slow ! Be warned. Good song but Im ready to be disappointed with the visuals.
Kaadhal Aasai (3/5) by Yuvan. The peculiar Yuvan’s voice adds the depth to it and only because of his voice, we listen to it. Not a “on-repeat” song, but still a good one. Especially the middle part which goes
Oru Kuzhandhaiyin Magizhchiyai Polavae
Unnai Vidumurai Thinamena Paarkiraen
Yen Nilamaiyin Thanimayai Nee Maatru
The tune here is particularly good.
Siruppu En (3/5). Item Song. Old tune but sexy voice of Manasi kinda makes up for it. And the English rhyme-scheme used is highly appreciated. Pun intended. 😀
Overall it’s a descent album from Yuvan but we keep getting disappointed ONLY because he is much much more than this. We want you back Yuvan. Let this be a start.
