You can listen to the soundtrack here.
Yaaradhu: Karthik, Suchitra
A peppy melody with Vidyasagar’s stamp all over. Karthik suits the flow of the song and the drums that come in between with Suchitra’s humming gives the song a good old 80′s-ish feel.
Pattamboochi: KK, Rita
After a long time one gets to hear KK’s voice. This is more dancey, though with a melodic base. Both the singers have done their part nicely. The shehnai portions remind of some of the latest Hindi hits.
Sada Sada: Karthik
A fast and racy rendition by Karthik. This song mixes the best of the 80s and the 2000′s, in classic Vidyasagar fashion. Will definitely stay in the charts for sometime.
Step Step: Benny Dayal, Megha
Salsa and Vijay. Need I say more??!! Lets wait for the video to come out. This song will stay on top of the songs for weeks surely.
Vinnai Kaapan: Tippu, Swetha
Finally a message song!! But a pretty racy one at that. And extensive usage of drums has enhanced the impact of the song. Once again the arrangement invokes VS’s older songs like En Ragasiya (Alai) and Vennakkallil (Pattalom – Malayalam). There is a set of lines in between where Tippu seems to miss the beat. But way the singer carries it off subsequently proves that it is supposed to be sung that way. Kudos to Tippu!!
Once again Vidyasagar has proved that he is Mr. Dependable. After a completely subdued soundtrack for Mandhira Punnagai, he creates another out-and-out commercial score in Kaavalan. A sureshot musical hit for Vijay!!
I give it an 8/10!!
My picks [necessarily in the same order ]: Step Step, Yaaradhu, Sada Sada, Vinnai Kaapan
