The album takes off with much pulsating number that is energizing completely. In fact, the song ‘Adi Vaadi Thimira’ has been so much appreciated right from the time of its single track release.

A fast paced folk kind of number that gets a blend with classical touch by its second half. The Qawali ragas during the first interlude followed by the verses that shifts from major to minor scales.

A cool sangfroid number and it’s perfect one from Karthi, who makes it more appealing.

A unique and different number in the album when compared to other tracks, which has the North Indian appeal, where we get to hear a decorous rendition by Chennai Qawali kids.

Lyrics: Bramma

This is a short number that is written by Bramma G and it looks like the flashback song of Saranya Ponvannan, who has crooned it. It’s a short love story of a girl’s affair with her typewriter master. Well, it might have its perfection when viewed with the film’s screenplay.

Karu Karunnu

Lyrics : Bramma

A small number that has a running length of just one minute of 48 seconds that has a short ballad like impact.

The rendition by Bhanupriya, Namitha Babu and Gold Devaraj are precisely on its best. Filmmaker Bramma has written the lyrics and the highlighting part is the phrase – I didn’t know his name, but when I got to know it, his breath was lasted.

Magalir Mattum

Ghibran always expresses his wizardry when it comes to offering signature music irrespective of what genre it is. He simply enlivens the musical spell out here with flute and piano bringing up the beautiful embellishments. As the peck of Nadhaswaram happens, it furthermore beautifies the track apparently.

It’s a blissful package of song that brings forth energetic enthusiasm. If songs are a part of screenplay, then listening to the tracks of Magalir Mattum gives a clear assumption of what this film is all about.
