Having delivered five back to back Chartbuster albums, Suriya and Yuvan Shankar Raja are back again for their sixth venture ‘Anjaan’ that is directed by Lingusamy and produced by Thirrupathi Brothers along with UTV. The album has five songs and each carry its own identities. We bring you an exclusive look on these songs with a vivid analysis.

Bang Bang Bang
Vocal: Ranjith
Lyrics: Karky

The song was a piece of applause from the time teaser was unveiled before few days. It holds an electrifying effect with Yuvan’s usage of instruments to enhance the heroism through the voices and music. The dance piece during the second interlude is going to leave everyone in high fever of excitement at theatres. The syllable stressed for particular words like ‘Wa..Wa..Wa Vare Varey Wa’ is a catchy one. The song is an intro to both Vidyut Jamwal and Suriya.

Oru Kan Jaadai
Vocals: Benny Dayal, Swetha Pandit
Lyrics: Vivega

A passable song from Yuvan Shankar Raja that takes some time to brew up, but his choice of singers are perfect as Benny Dayal and Swetha Pandit create right mood that is needed for a jazzy number. The song is set in backdrops of Goa and thereby the musical relevance with cool instrumentals employs the right effect. But it might take more stands with the visuals for the stylish looks of Suriya and Samantha.

Ek Do Theen Chaar
Vocals: Suriya, Andrea Jeremiah
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

The studding pinnacle of this album as every Suriya fans curiously looked out for this song as their matinee-idol croons it. The lyrics by Na. Muthukumar are so simple and the track starts impressing you in more depth as you keep listening to it. Andrea Jeremiah is okay with her voice, but her intonation slightly goes out of way during high-pitched scales and a singer like Sunidhi Chauhan would have made it more appealing.

Kadhal Aasai
Vocal: Yuvan Shankar Raja, Sooraj Santhosh
Lyrics: Kabilan

A slow poison that haunts your souls immensely… The composition during the verses of shifting major to minor notes during the lines ‘Veedu Thedi Varuven Koopidum Velaiyil’ is an embellishment of Qawali style that favours the track vividly. If there was another version of this song reprised by a singer like Javed Ali, it would have made more impact. But Yuvan Shankar Raja is over the top and so is Sooraj Santosh with his vocalism.

Sirippu En
Vocal: MM. Manasi
Lyrics: Vivega

It’s an item number and irrespective of the pros and cons, the song will surely grab everyone’s eyeballs as the most gorgeous girl from Bollywood – Chitrangada Singh shakes her legs to this number. The distorted guitars and the sassy voice of Manasi are the best highlights in this song.

‘Anjaan’ has catchy numbers based on different musical genres, but Yuvan Shankar Raja’s ‘Kadhal Aasai’ is over the top and rest of the numbers will gain the prominence with visuals.

Verdict: Cool and peppy treat from Yuvan Shankar Raja
