Songs in a film isn’t a wonder, but how about experiencing them while flipping through a novel. Sounds quite unconventionally exciting, isn’t? Mariyaan befitting to such unparalleled attributes can have its credits to AR Rahman’s music.

Each track speaks of a theme and Bharatbala mentioned in an interview, AR Rahman chose the song situations, which he usually doesn’t prefer making it for other films. Call the songs of Mariyaan, a metaphorical resemblance of VIBGYOR (Rainbow colours) as every track creates a unique ambience to the listeners.

Kadal Raasa

Singer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Lyrics: Dhanush

Perhaps, for the first time you heard this song in the film’s teaser, you might have assumed it to be a mass introduction song for Dhanush. But on contrary, it’s about the pathos of the lad, who is succumbed to a pitiable situation.

The song traverses through his emotional praises of his home town and ladylove Panimalar. Yuvan Shankar Raja has rocked to the core with his high-pitch tone and it’s obvious that AR Rahman made a stunning choice.

On the instrumental panorama, the Shenai and percussions played during the interlude with guitars is awesome. Trust us!!! You would relentlessly keep listening to this part of song over and again.

I Love Africa

Voice: AR Rahman, Blaaze, Madras Youth Choir


Lyrics: Brian Kabwe, Blaaze

Congo drums and the rap by Blaaze with AR Rahman’s rendition keeps creating the smile on our faces as we keep listening to the tracks. It sounds like the song would be placed in the background score when Dhanush embarks on his journey into the Africa for his new job along with a bunch of his mates.


Voices:Javed Ali, Haricharan, Nakash Aziz

Lyrics: Vaali

Rap lyrics: Sofia Ashraf

Pump out the energy and let the electrifications spread into your spaces. AR Rahman distinctly makes sure that the song keeps us enthralled from beginning till the end. With the best singers Javed Ali, Haricharan and Nakash Aziz make the song more energetic. Hats off to the stunning beats on percussions and wonderful orchestration that stands out as the major highlight in this track…

Enga Pona Raasa

Voice: AR Rahman, Shakthisree Gopalan

Lyrics: Kutti Revathi

You’ll be left speechless and one can be sure that ‘Enga Pona Raasa’ will definitely get ennobled as the best melodious treat of this year. The song doesn’t boast of more instrumentals and brims with just mild guitars and the strings. The mellifluous vocalism by ‘Nenjukulle’ fame Sakthisree Gopalan is icing on the cake.

Netru Aval

Voice: Vijay Prakash, Chinmayee


Lyrics: Vaali

Here comes another honeyed treat to the listeners with the singers Vijay Prakash and Chinmayee enchanting us with their soothing voices. But guess what makes the song more embellished? The colossal orchestration of instruments and chorus by Rahman that gives an appealing touch to it…. In places, the song reminiscences of Rahman’s yesteryear melody hit from Thenali, but that doesn’t affect its intensity.

Innum Konjam Neram

Voice: AR Rahman, Vijay Prakash, Swetha Mohan

Lyrics: Kabilan

The prelude on harmonium gives a nostalgic feeling of ‘Ye Manpuru Mangaye’ from Guru. The folk touch is so melodious with Vijay Prakash and Swetha Mohan ornamenting it with their beautiful rendition. The lyrical lines by Kabilan are so simple and easy to grasp.

Nenjae Ezhu

Voice: AR Rahman

Lyrics: AR Rahman

Arise oh soul from the gallows of misery and darkness. Enliven your spirits and keep going the way to your destiny. The LOVE and HOPE become the intriguing elements in this song and Rahman has brilliantly infused it with best feel by scaling the pitches. Of course, this will be the most celebrated song in this album and that’s due to the charismatic voice of AR Rahman.

Overall, Mariyaan brings out a new line of engaging music that keeps juggling between various genres. AR Rahman has neatly arranged the music and has shed more importance to the lyrics for its poetic attribute.

Verdict: Mariyaan – Discovery of a rare pearl.

  1. What can you expect when two friends who are already immortalized in the minds and hearts of every Indian across the globe for their soul stirring album “Vandhe Mataram” decide to collaborate once again? Forget everything they achieved before or set to achieve later, Vandhe mataram would always remain an achievement, inspiration ages to come. And when the news of ARR and Bharat Bala coming together hit the headlines, music aficionados let their expectations soar.. Dhanush a name synonymous these days to lyrics and music set the meter hot and with Yuvan’s entry nothing more mattered in Tamil film music. Not in recent history had any movie album received so much of attention and expectation purely for the names behind its music. So much so that everything else associated with the movie took a back seat and the music took centre stage….

    Nenje Ezhu : An song of “hope” and ARR doesn’t try too hard. He picks one from his illustrious list of patriotic songs template and croons it himself to get the desired effect. As usual ARR takes care of the theatrical orchestration to create an impact. The song takes off well but mid way it stays afloat.

    Innum Konja Neram : A lively song elevated by some splendid singing by Vijay Prakash aptly supported by Shwetha Mohan. It’s the earthy ghatam in the back ground that provides the perfect foil for this song not to forget the relationship it has with the other instruments. Its instantly catchy.

    Netru Aval Irundal : If you thought Vijay Prakash was splendid listen to this, subtle, warm and close to perfect Vijay Prakash charms listeners in this song. Chinmayee is not far behind. The song progresses beautifully and somewhere it loses its flow. The orchestration is bare to highlight the tune, the singers and the lyrics. The lines by Vaali are the best of the album and go a long way in giving wholesomeness to the song.

    Sonapareeya : As you get into the groove comes this dampener, Ignore the naadaswaram bit and you would cringe at its manufactured structure. The “Sonapareeya” repeat sounds silly and Javed Ali an absolute misfit doesn’t help either. The rhythm and the nadaswaram remain the saving grace.

    I Love Africa : If you thought the previous song was average this song beats it square. Blaaze goes jay singing with African sounds for company. It more sounds like “A song for Blaaze” please. Too little to please us.

    Enga Ponna Rasa : Back to where it all began, plain lyrics, uncomplicated tune, poignant singing by Shaktisree, emotionally supported by soulful strings. This song straightaway appeals to the heart.

    Kadal Raasa Naan : The much expected song begins with an excellent rhythm that plays throughout the song saving it from some ordinary lyrics. Yuvan perhaps has given his best performance so far behind the mike. Nothing much to write about the song, save for a few interludes as the song performs much lesser to the expectation it was built on.

    Mariyaan is definitely not on par with ARR classics.. It’s lost somewhere in the middle. Yes there is a lot to savour and cherish but that’s far and in between. Its good.. But nowhere to the expectation made out of it…..
