Kaththi - Totally Anirudh's Album.

Aathi Enna Nee - This is the best song of this album. Vishal Dadlani once again gets a good song from Anirudh and this combo works very well. And, when Anirudh enters where the tune shifts into the theme music it was brilliant and addictive. I don't know whether the theme music made me like this song or this song made me like the theme music. Very much looking forward to the visual of this song, I hope they don't disappoint.

Pakkam Vanthu - Anirudh joins with HipHop Thamizha Aadhi once again. As usual they are having too much fun. Instantly likable which I will hear repeatedly for few days and not much after that, I guess. And, it must be a treat to watch on the screen. But, do I hear the word B**CH in this song, which is unacceptable I say given that the heroine is my favorite Sam.

Selfie Pulla - Karky + Vijay combo, which started Vj singing a song in his movie, is back again after Google Google. Another song similar to Google Google, Vj doesn't have any trouble in singing this and he does it in style. Karky's lyrics once again stands out. He uses FB, Instagram, etc., in his lyrics again still it sounds fresh.

Themes - Both the themes are really good. The theme didn't create any impact during the motion poster, but its really nice now except for that Kaatthhtthii bit at the end. And, the bad eyes theme is even more awesome. His best is still the themes from 3.

Yaar - Legendary KJY has sung this, enough said. The lyrics make me curious, like குலசாமி இவன், ayyayo innoru Thalaiva va? Naadu thaangathu.

Paalam - Shakar Mahadevan and Swetha Mohan, two of my favorite singers have sung this song, but didn't create much of an impact on me.

Aathi Enna Nee - Too good.
Pakkam Vanthu, Selfie Pulla - Above Average.
Yaar, Paalam - Just Okay.

This is totally Anirudh's rather than Vijay's. Aathi Enna Nee and Pakkam Vanthu are not an usual Vijay film songs. And, I don't see a mass intro song, which is interesting. A good 'mass' (I don't even remember the actual meaning of mass now) album and he is a different track from Santhosh Narayanan and Ghibran.

Merasalayiten and Kaththi, too much Anirudh this week.

I (Music) - Naan Idha Solliye Aaganum

Aila Aila - Except these two words nothing sticks in my mind even after repeated hearing. Didn't like much.

Ennodu Nee Irunthal - Original version by Adiye fame Sid Sriram is not as good as the reprise version. Maybe ARR should have tried different voice, but he knows better. Didn't like much.

Ladio - Sounds interesting, especially the ka-sa-da-tha-ba-ra start. Too fast to hear the lyrics, but definitely foot-tapping. Liked it to an extent.

Mersalayitten - Nijamave Mersalayitten. Fun and simple song, sung well by Neeti Mohan and Anirudh. But, too much of Anirudh these days. Lyrics were seriously funny like what the legendary Vaali could have penned on the go. Liked it.

Ennodu Nee Irunthal (Reprise) - Chinmayi gets another beautiful song from ARR. She sounds so good as usual, but this song reminds me of "Nenje Ezhu" from Mariyan. Liked it.

Pookalae Sattru Oyivedungal -  Here comes the usual Rahman-Shankar combo's duet song which will be pictured in some mind blowing exotic locales. Haricharan is going places these days. Its hard to keep him out of any album. And, accompanied by my favorite Shreya Ghosal. Was looking forward to hear this after seeing Shreya Ghosal's name in the track list. Wonderful words by Karky as well. Explains the meaning of I as well. My favorite song. Now eager to see it on the big screem.

Surprisingly ARR didn't sing and Vairmuthu didn't pen any in this album.

Pookalae Sattru Oyivedungal and Ennodu Nee Irunthal (Reprise) - Too good.
Mersalayitten and Ladio - Average
Ennodu Nee Irunthal and Aila Aila - Just okay.

Will hear all these songs again and again for few days before I move on. But, no wonder each and every song will be a treat to watch on screen since Shankar will treat each song as a mini-movie.

P.S : Two songs Ovvondrai Thirudugirai and Sangi Mangi (for the repeated dheena-ragajana-dhana-ragajana) is very good from Jeeva by Imman.
