Movie: Kaththi

1.Pakkam Vanthu-Hip Hop Tamizha Aadhi,Anirudh Ravichander

Well, if it's hip hop tamizha, then its sure to be a hip hop track. An energetic party number that is sure to rock the dance floors in the coming days. Embedded with gibberish lyrics and slight folk beats, this song gets interesting with Anirudh's soulful rendering in the 'Manamey manamey' line. A rocking pub song!

2.Paalam-Shankar Mahadevan,Shwetha Mohan

Right from the beginning of this song, there is grandness written all over it. A carnatic folk song that turns even more beautiful in the powerful voice of Shankar Mahadevan. And of course, Shwetha Mohan excels in this number with her sweet voice. The chorus is an added advantage which brings out the celebratory mood of this track. The rhythm turns faster towards the end which gives this song a grand finishing.

 3.Kaththi Theme-Anirudh Ravichander

Anirudh brings out a theme that is high on energy. There are the sounds of knives clashing which makes the theme stay true to the movie's title. The major instrument used in this track is the Urumi melam along with digitalized Santoor and Bagpipers.

4.Selfie Pulla-Vijay,Sunidhi Chauhan

A tailor made track for Vijay that completely satisfies all the requirements needed for a peppy number. This song is going out to be the chartbuster of the year as it has been loaded with oodles of energy and some powerful rendition by Vijay and Sunidhi Chauhan. With lyrics like 'Facebook' 'Instagram' and 'Selfie', this one is a uber cool modern number that is sure to be enjoyed by all the youngsters!

5.Bad Eyes Theme-Anirudh Ravichander

This theme has been composed with lots of flute loops, Sitar and bhols that turns extraordinary with the water splashed in the background. Anirudh does a great job in bringing out this theme.

6.Yaar Petra Magano-K.J.Yesudhas

A sentimental piece in the evergreen voice of legendary singer is something special in this generation. Anirudh makes this pathos as soul stirring as possible. The guitar strums give it a contemporary touch that saves the song from turning out be a complete 80s number. The occasional humming by Anirudh adds spice to the mellifluous number. Classic in all the ways!

7.Aathi Ena Nee-Vishal Dadlani,Anirudh

 And here comes the signature track of Anirudh! This one is the highlight of the entire album. A groovy R&B number that instantly hooks you on. Vishal's voice flows fluently along with the simple rhythm of this song. With no much instrumentation, this number excels with its overall simplicity and the romantic feel that it carries along. A soulful modern number!

Verdict:

Anirudh once again proves that he is a youth-friendly composer. With tracks that are peppy and catchy, this album is sure to stay on the charts for a long time.
