Arya, Santhanam and Premji are set to rock the theatres from April, and as a bonus; foot tapping numbers from Thaman are out in stores selling like hot pancakes. "Settai" is also the remake of the blockbuster "Delhi Belly" which had rave music reviews. Now let's take a look at how the songs have fared off
Singers: Vijay Prakash & Megha
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
This is a lovely duet by Vijay & Megha craving us for the visuals. The song opens with a strong Bass rut which carries on throughout the track. There are no real qualms with this song and strikes a strong chord by carrying the constant tempo which gets you listening over and over.
Singers: Karthik and Suchitra
The lyrics of this song are sure to be in rounds for this valentine season. Thamarai has made the best use of the tune in this breezy song. Karthik's groovy voice is a plus, but then Suchitra steals the show with a sweet and harmonious opening. However it might need a second listening to convince its blissful nature.
Singers: Sricharan and Chinmayee
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
Two of the happening singers and a brainy lyricist in the town join and what do we expect? A foot tapping bass delight. Thaman's rigorous with the Bass level of this song, adding to the guitarish nature and Chinmayi's chirpy voice humming in the background is a total harmony to the ears.
Singers: Andrea Jeremiah
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar
Andrea Jeremiah still basking on the success of "Google Google" has sung this sizzling number. Though this song has everything to keep the head nodding, it's a reminiscent of many known tunes put together. To sum up, though this song has all beautiful elements in it, lacks bits and pieces here and there. There is also a Mediterranean touch to this song.
Edhathaan Kanduttey Nee Pudhusa
Singers: Gaana Bala
Lyrics: Gaana Bala
When you hear this song the first time, you are sure to be drawn by the mettle of the singer, then the lyrics slowly captivate us and finally the music, thereby all the elements one by one. A hilarious song with Gaana Bala crooning his voice and lyrics makes us wait for the happy go track, onscreen.
Theme Settai :
Singers: Anbu Raju, Dhevan
Those who have seen "Delhi Belly", will sense that, the theme of Settai is a beat by beat photocopy of the Hindi version. Even the words "Bhaag Vodu" seem to be replicated without much fuss. This unique track is fast paced and gets you the chanting words "Vodu Vodu".
Ergo an elite attempt by Thaman
