Vijay fans have been keeping themselves hooked upon this film for a very long time. The reason is with the grand success of ‘Kaavalan’, the expectations were completely bigger with this film as the Ilayathalapathy fans were curious to see Vijay in a new avatar. The audio launch of ‘Velayudham’ was held in grandeur last evening in Madurai.
We bring you the exclusive music review of ‘Velayudham’ first on net.
- Ratthathin Ratthame
Vocals: Haricharan, Madhumitha
A song meant for Vijay and his ardent followers and it’s so noticeable with the lyrics itself. The song takes off with a perfect note with the usage of distorted guitars. It’s clear that Ilayathalapathy is conveying his message for the fans here. Haricharan vocalism suits well for Vijay and Madhumitha too does her job well. Annamalai has very well understood the need of the song and has delivered it with excellent essence.
- Molachhu Moonu
Vocals: Prasanna, Supriya Joshi
Although Vijay Anthony fluently churns out fast-beat Kuthu numbers, he is always best in delivering some commendable melodies. The only melody in this album and its outstanding. Prasanna and Supriya Joshi have rendered the song with a splendid feeling. It must create more impact with the visuals.
- Sonna Puriyathu
Vocals: Vijay Anthony, Veera Shankar
Lyrics: Siva Shanmugham
Again, it’s a song meant for Vijay and fans as the opening lines itself implies it. Vijay Anthony had earlier crooned few tracks for Vijay and they were at the best. This one isn’t an exception as it’s sure to create more mania in the theatres. Get ready for the treat from Vijay-Vijay combo.
- Maayam Seidhayo
Vocals: Sangeetha Rajeshwaran
The song sounds like a remix of yesteryear classical old Tamil song. Much more than the voice of Sangeetha Rajeshwaran, it’s the musical accompaniment and chorus that evokes more interests among the listeners. The distorted guitars and drums over the rhythmic panorama make it more appealing.
Vocals: Vijay Anthony, Mark
The signature song is already famous as we have been hearing them frequently with the teasers. It looks like it will occur throughout the film during the hilarious portions.
Vocals: Karthik, Charulatha Mani
Here comes the rocking song from Ilayathalapathy and he is gonna take you for a big treat for the frontbenchers. The song has heavy pumping beats and it is surpassing than ‘En Uchi Mandaila’ in Vettaikaaran. Usually Vijay Anthony picks up such tracks, but has gone for a change as Karthik croons the number. Charulatha Mani on the pars gives the right feeling of the song.
On the whole, ‘Velayudham’ has songs that are specially for the fans of Ilayathalapathy. With vigorous promotions and continuous airings on all networks, the songs are sure to reach the peak within short span of time.
Verdict: Special treat for Ilayathalapathy fans.
