This is a season between Yuvan and Harris.It is proving to be an interesting rivalry. And at any rate, it has proved to be good for audio buffs.

Yuvan has once again shown his fine form in Kanda Naal Muthal. He has come up trumps coming out with five numbers. The movie is directed by debutant V Priya, a one-time associate of Manirathnam, and produced by actor Prakashraj.

Starring Prasanna, Karthik and Laila, the movie has five songs besides a theme music.

Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghoshal,Sadhana Sargam and Karthik have left their magic in the numbers.

Kanda Naal Muthal will be yet another hit in the books of Yuvan Shankar Raja.

1) Pani Thuli (KayKay, Shreya Ghoshal, Thanvi) The start is slow but pretty measured.Kay Kay and Shreya Ghosal take time to warm up. But after they hit the top gear, it is all cruise for us listeners. Yuvan's right touches add extra flavor to this rich romantic number.

2) Kanda Naal Muthalai (Subhiksha, Pooja) The song, set to tune on a perfect carnatic raga,would be a sheer treat for the listeners. A unheard singer Pooja makes you to want to hear for long. Her poise and grace remind one of Bombay Jayashree. Subhiksha gives her good company. A 'classical number' that is sure to enthrall listeners.

3) Koo Koovena  (Karthik, Harish Raghavendra, Mahalakshmi Iyer) The song reminds one of Maestro Ilayaraja's numbers in early 1980s. It has a rhythmic beat and a catchy music. Its nuances are enhanced by the brisk voices of Karthik and Harish Raghavendra in the company of  Mahalakshmi Iyer. The song begins on a slow note and goes on to pick the momentum. Yuvan's excellent orchestration is the special attraction of this song.

4)Erimalai Naane (Shankar Mahadevan, Vasundhara Das) The vibrant Shankar Mahadevan and energetic Vasundhara Dass come together to render a high voltage number. With operatic influences, the song is racy and entertaining. It's nice to see Vasundhara Dass back after a long gap in Tamil. The rocking song in the album is sure to top audio charts.

5)Merke Merke (Shankar Mahadevan, Sadhana Sargam) A soft number with the candy floss voice of Sadhna Sargam along with energetic Shankar Mahadevan. Less of instrumentation but more of tonal rhythms. It shows Yuvan's felicity with tunes and its variations there of.

6) Pushing It Hard  (Yuvan Shankar Raja, Clinton, Premji) A rap number sung by Yuvan Shankar Raja along with Clinton and Premji.Perhaps the theme song of the album. It is raucously agreeable and is in tune with the demands of the youth market.

Yuvan's fine form continues.
