Ajith's 50th offering in Tamil cinema - 'Mankatha' is much-expected by those at the film industry and fans eagerly, due to reasons many. And finally, as Yuvan says in an interview with IG, the wait is indeed over for 'Mankatha', as the tracks will hit DVD stands tomorrow!
"Mankatha will be more like a musical with more importance to background score than the dialogues and the eight tracks", says the director Venkat Prabhu. "Although its an action-packed film, music plays a vital role in this multi-starrer", says Yuvan.
IG provides a sneak-peak on each of these tracks:
'Vilayadu Mankatha...' - This hip-hop song is thala Ajith's introduction track in the film. The song already released a couple of months back and has become a hot favourite for many. It's based in a club and gives a nightlife feel. Yuvan has lent the base voice for this song, and the other singers for this track include Anitha, Premgi Amaren, Ranjith and Sucharitha. A trumpet sound is what that indicates the arrival or a celeb or a king and this song has utilized that catchy tune to introduce thala Ajith.
'Nee Naan...' - This song is a montage between few characters in the film and you can see two of the couples in these pictures. This song is the fastest composition by Yuvan in this film, composed in ten minutes of time and recorded in lesser than two days! Niranjan Bharathi, the descendant of Bharathiyar debuts as a lyricist through this song.
'Vaada Bin Laada...'
- A futuristic duet, is how Yuvan terms this song. It's a duet between Ajith and Trisha
with a futuristic appeal even in visuals, with some graphics. Techno beats play a major part in this song that has been sung by Suchitra and Krish.
'Machi Open The Bottle...' - The very mention of this song brings a smile from Venkat or Yuvan. A lot of tunes were given by Yuvan for this situation, and this is what that was finally zeroed in. This will set in a mood that 'Saroja Saman Nikalo...' brought about and is a mass number that sets a celebration mood.
'Nanbane...' - It's a duet and is Venkat Prabhu's favourite pick from the album. It's a feel good song with some great lyrics.
'Balle Lakka...' - It's a song that features thala Ajith and Premgi, another celebration song in the film. Anusha Dhayanidhi has made her debut as a singer in this song.
'Mankatha' Theme Music - It's inspired from a 50 cents track and the due credits have been given to the song. The song brings out the theme of the film aptly.
'Vilayadu Mankatha...' Dance Extended Mix - A little longer than the original, this remix track and is a treat for Ajith fans.
Apart from these, sources in the know add that a few songs will set a perfect retro feel. At a time when even budding stars hesitate do a double-hero project, thala Ajith has placed pure confidence in Venkat Prabhu for a multi-starrer and the whole plot revolves around his moves and there are many chase scenes you can look forward to.
