If you are not an internet buff, then know this: the last two days has been some incredible response to Anirudh's third musical "Vanakkam Chennai" which features Shiva and Priya Anand in the lead. The social networking sites has been trending with amazing responses to this music outburst, let's take a look at what has made this album a sensation.
Singers: Anirudh, Suchithra
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
The song has a refreshing tryst with melody; probably one of the reasons is because the stringful harmony of Nathaswaram clubbed with strings innovates continuously. The song is also a revelation of Anirudh as a singer who matches the standards of a matured singer. A soulful duet that speaks and breathes the love of a guy and girl, probably a rain dance, a candy love in making, thanks to Madan's vibrant lyrics.
Chennai City Gangsta
Singers: Anirudh, 'Hip Hop Tamizha' Aadhi, Country Chicken, Hard Kaur
Lyrics: 'Hip Hop Tamizha' Aadhi, Hard Kaur
Here comes Anirudh's club song unleashed, full and heavy on party elements. International icon Hard Kaur grooves off to make way for Hip Hop Tamizhan, who steals the songs limelight and then Anirudh helps on the melody bit. A song that sleazes away on Chennai's rich quotient by making references to SRK, Goa, Marina and yeah Aadhi is the lyricist as he prides on Chennai. Freakishly fast raps with heavy dosage of Electronic tempos make this song a livewire sensation to drop on the floor and sway away.
Singers: Andrea, Anirudh
Lyrics: Vignesh Shivan
Tap your foot, clap your hands and laugh in guffaws for that is what this song is capable off. Anirudh wails away to a chic Andrea and together they sizzle. A funny song to relish especially for the youth. The highlight of the song is Vignesh Shivan's lyrics makes you double with laughter at various references of the week and the Baasha mention just catches you off guard at its echoes. Shiva will be the spotlight as the lyrics look tailor made for his antics. The Vocal percussions from the start applaud the song and finishes off with a wail.
Singers: Maria Roe Vincent, Papon
An interesting song with a horde of instruments compliments Papon's animated singing. Starting off with an acoustic guitar base, moves on to the strings department and then between interludes full with whistles and saxes. Another fresh song from Ani probably the breezes new found love of our Romeo like a million bucks bundled with energetic buzzes of trance music and percussions. A bouncy song that should go "Yahoo" among the love bugs.
Singers: Anirudh, Vishal Dadlani
Welcome to the song of the album, Vishal and Anirudh bring a melody sensation; the perennial groove in the background sizzles away. A vibrant solo from Vishal a delight for someone who is a first timer in Tamil, and with Anirudh's vibe of love just brings the soul to bliss. The confidence in the Pianistic rut bursts in segments, Kudos to Ani yet again.
Oh Penne (International version)
Singers: Arjun, Charles Bosco
The teaser which came out first, does live up to the expectation and boy does this cream in to your whistle. Arjun from UK cleans up his stance with a performance on the standards of International star, a song for all Yo English lovers in urban milieu.
Singers: Anirudh, Pragathi
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
A breathtaking duet from Anirudh and Pragathi, that gives the listener a celebration of romance, upped with harmonious interludes and instrumentation. The flute and Violin mix ripples as the song settles in, and this song again reverberates the singer in Anirudh and his immense belief in new comer Pragathi. The song though definitely makes you compare it with Rahman and Harris, as the tunes are set on that standard.
Verdict: A Hatrick no doubt!
