Music Review (Tamil): Trisha Illana Nayanthara
Music Composer: G V Prakash

Album starts off with Bittu Padam Di, dynamic mediocre  kuthu number with guitar riffs giving slight nod to yesteryear sensual numbers and lyrics features famous ‘virgin payan sabam’ along with other love failure lines. Adhik Ravichandran is apt for the tone of the song and sounds similar to GV Prakash Kumar. Mutham Kodutha Mayakkari starts with Ilayaraja’sh background but soon digressed into an enticing combination of dubstep and Thavil sound throughout the song. Yuvan Shankar Raja sounds good, however tune appears to be on flipside which didn’t gel well with the other interesting sounds in the song. G V Prakash and his better half Saindhavi comes together to croon another wonderful melody Yenachu Yedhachu and this too will have a reputed place in their combination. GV Prakash arrangements with flute in the first interlude, violin solos along with mild percussions in the second interlude and other synth sounds deserves special mention. Dakalti too suffers from tepid tune amidst many fusion sounds throughout the song. Andrea Jeramiah, Gana Bala and other singers bolstered the mediocre tune with their vocals, however that too fails to clasp the listeners for four and half minute. Song features lyrics which are sub-standard and cringe worthy.
G V Prakash nails the Rain Dance A Tin Theme tune with thumping percussion and Tin whistle  sounds peppered with sweeping strings sections. Overall Rain dance A tin theme elevates the mood of the soundtrack as a whole.Title Song also works wonderfully for its enticing Nadaswaram and Thavil combination and remix of yesteryear famous tune and hilarious lyrics adds further to its quirky tone of the arrangements. However dubstep portion towards the end appears discordant with flow of the song.

Verdict: GV Prakash creates offbeat enticing fusion sounds in some of the songs to suit the movie’s genre, However, tunes by GVP doesn’t support the ambience created by him  which results in average soundtrack from composer.

My rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Yenachu Yedhachu, Rain Dance a Tin theme, Mutham Kodutha Mayakkari.
