Lingusamy is back with Sandai Kozhi. Featuring Chellamae fame Vishal, the movie has Meera Jasmine and Raj Kiran in the lead roles.

Lingusamy says, 'it is an interesting movie. The idea is to appeal to all the sections'.

Produced by GK Film Corporation, the movie has musical score by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

It has five numbers that are a mix of western and folk numbers.

1.Ennamo Nadakkirathe (Shaan)

A typical Yuvan Shankar number with lively rhythms and high-pitched voice. It is a youthful number written by Na Muthukumar.Shaan's voice is refreshing. The song picks up speed as it evolves. It is a kind of number that has an instant appeal to the youths.

2.Dhavanipotta Deepavali  (Vijay Yesudas, Shreya Ghoshal)

This is again A fusion of folk and western music ---something that was almost patented by Yuvan's father Ilayaraja. The son shows he is the chip off the old block. With Shreya Ghoshal for company, Vijay Yesudas has done a good job rendering his voice.  However one is reminded of the song Theradi Veedhiyil from the movie Run, directed by Lingusamy himself. The banjo and the percussions again take the centre stage here.

3. Gumthalakkadi Gana (Karthik, Ranjith)

As the first line of the song itself shows, this is a racy stuff sure to make it to the top of the audio-charts. Begins as a local 'Ganaa'number, the song goes on to catch a western tune. The highlight of the song is the good lyrics by Na Muthukumar. Describing the mood among students on the farewell day at a college, the song is sure to catch the attention of youths. Karthik is a live wire and Ranjith is an able foil to him.

4. Mundasu Sooriyane (Karthik, Sriram)

Apparently a song describing the rich legacy of a village chieftain played by Raj Kiran in the movie, the song has brisk music with Sriram rendering it with grace with his strong voice. Karthik chips in with his best. Provides a different sound not heard before in Yuvan's music.

5. Ketta Kodukkira Boomi (Jassie Gift, Sujatha, Ganga,Chinmayee) Perhaps the pick of the album. A racy and pacy number with Jassie Gift at his full-flow, the song is set in a rural milieu and provides Yuvan to try his hand at different instruments. Quite typical to his father, known for his earthy tunes, Yuvan has come out with a song, which not only retains the earthy feel but also the pace.
