Music Review (Tamil): Yaakai

Music Review (Tamil): Yaakai
Music Composer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

         Nee En Kannil sounds pleasant and the upbeat electronic rhythm works to the song's favor. However, Yuvan Shankar Raja's edgy vocals and the cluttered arrangements especially towards the end is incongruous to the overall flow of the song. The familiarized Yuvan's tune keeps the song afloat in an otherwise passable opening number from the composer. Sollitholaiyaen Ma starts off well with an engaging Vijay's flute and string section, however, the song meander towards the techno dominated song. Though Dhanush sounds like Yuvan at times, he pulled off the Vignesh Shivan's youth friendly lyrics exceptionally well. Overall, easily accessible lyrics and vocals make this one listenable till it lasts.

         Naan Ini Kaatril is easily best one in the album, sweeping melody sung effortlessly by ever reliable Chinmayi and the composer itself. The highlight is undeniably the lovely arrangements where serene piano cum string and an upbeat electronic rhythm interspersed in a fabulous manner throughout the song. Vijay's brief flute in the second interlude is the standout piece in the track.Yuvan ends the soundtrack in style with the haunting immersive melody Ennulle crooned by Tanvi Shah and the string sections along with the chorus complements the mood of the song. The symphonic classical arrangements and the Tanvi Shah's attitude elevate the level of the song.

Verdict: Yaakai has the right mix of Yuvan's likable stamp tunes and the pleasant breezy melodies from the composer.

My Rating: 7.5/10

My Rating: Naan Ini Kaatril, Ennulle, Sollitholaiyaen Ma
