Commences with decorous chords on guitar that takes our memories down the lane of Ilayaraja-fangled mesmerizing tune… Lyrical lines capture your senses right on the first time and Andrea’s intonation works magic with GV Prakash accompanying on her tracks. Simplistic-mild beats and well-organized rhythms make this song more splendiferous. Indeed, it would be one of the best songs of this year.
Here’s the unparalleled pick of the album specially meant for the ardent buffs of peppy song with folk-rap fashioned one… Dhanush doesn’t strain a lot on tracks and merely goes transfixing with it. The orchestrations with best synthesizers again work best magic on this number. Don’t miss the quotients of Aishwarya Dhanush and Andrea. Fill-ins and rap lines by Premji between preludes and invigorating beats excites the heeders.

A felicitous piece that was never attempted by any musicians in tinsel town! Heart-storming song of emotions expressed with the blend of ‘Sundara’ Telugu and language of God’s own country. Wordlessly stupendous! The singers have crooned with the Telugu-Malayalam’s perfect modulation as the genre hop-skips vividly. It’s a complete show by singers with fill-ins on re-recording making it sound more appealing. Perhaps, it will create more sensation with spellbinding visuals canned by Ramji.

Vocals: GV Prakash Kumar
A filmmaker has to get himself more involved in every line of lyrics – Selva uttered this when questioned about penning lyrical lines for this film. Yeah! The film’s theme about a protagonist’s inner voice is illustrious with this song. As the adventure begins, the lad’s puzzle and excitement over the proceedings has been well-expressed with this song. The mild beats and GV’s voice attracts you. On the buttons, it would almost like montages of the young lad traveling through barren land and bushes of thick forests on pursuit of something.
