Yuvan Shankar Raja
More of Hari, less Yuvan

There is nothing much left for Yuvan to prove, because he had delivered blockbusters after blockbusters in the past. It is about time that he must surpass his own records, and raise the bar to an all new level. ‘Anjaan’ was commercially classy, and ‘Raja Natwarlal’ earned him all the accolades to stabilize his position in B-town. Let’s see what he had offered for Hari’s ‘Poojai’ in detail.

1. Devathayai  Listen here
Singer(s): Nivas

You don’t have to see the label to know this one is from Yuvan. A wonderful foot tapping melody which starts and end with beautiful whistle and guitar notes. Nivas continues his gorgeous form, and quite cleverly renders this track, albeit the base tune finds some resemblance to Yuvan’s work in ‘Samar’ (Azhago Azhagu). If Hari had put in some effort to picture this track in some picturesque place means, this number will easily become a crowd favorite.

2. Ippadiye Listen here
Singer(s): Rahul Nambiyar, Mili Nair

A neither impressive nor so bland one. Rahul Nambiyar and Mili tried their best to ignite some life to this pedestrian celebratory mood tune, but none of them actually works at the end. Once again, a track which falls right under the category of, could have been composed better.

3. Odi Odi Listen here
Singer(s): Palakkad Sriram

The album heads to another clichéd track and Palakkad Sriram gives everything to stir the goosebump’ish quotient, and he might succeed with the help of visuals. The interludes are energetic and might find a place as BGM in the movie, but as a song, this hasn’t served the purpose.

4. Soda Bottle Listen here
Singer(s): Yazin, Anthony Dassan, Sathyan

After hitting the bulwark in the past 2 songs, Yuvan strikes big with a massy number. Anthony Dassan and Yazin complements each other really well to deliver a groovy intro number for Vishal. Yuvan throws a small surprise at the end with his blazing guitars to finish the track on a high!

5. Uyire Listen here
Singer(s): Yuvan Shankar Raja

A short pathos driven by magnetic vocals from the composer himself. Finally, we get to hear the string sections in the interludes and the sound arrangements pulls off the desolate mood.

6. Verarum Listen here
Singer(s): Karthik, Pooja

Yuvan has saved the best for the last in this OST and he roped in the best in the industry to render it. Na. Muthukumar has penned the simplest of lyrics to a tune which is soaked in classical base. Pooja’s part is quite breezy, and she goes ahead of Karthik in terms of delivering the sweet poison.

Verdict: A commercial cocktail which could have been better.

Pick(s) of the album – Devathayai, Soda Bottle, Verarum

Stars: 2.75/5
