1. Enna Saithale
Singer : Haricharan, Shreya Goshal
A cool and breezy tune with all the usual Harris elements is here. The lethargic chorus and sleazy sax is a usual in the composer's orchestration, and in a slow duet it has come out neat. No qualms on this romantic song, Harris has made the saxophone extensively between the interludes, with Hariharan stealing the magic, should go down well among the urban youth.
2. Ennatha Sola
Singer : Karthik, Haricharan, Velmurugan, Ramesh Vinayakam
A jolly go happy song has a horde of singers crooning in a talkative fashion; go about yapping what happens if you get hooked with a gal, in love and what the women are capable. The tune is quite catchy and carved especially for a peppy visual for the youngsters in love. Harris has used a range of westernized instruments and then hopes on to the traditional folk bit when it comes to the signature lines.
3. Kadal Naan
Singer : Sudha Ragunathan, Suzanne, MK Balaji
The song shoots off like a candy pop and then flows with a distant electronic beat in the background. Yet another breezy song has traces of Harris's signature all over the song, as he blends the song in a "Shake your head" style! Sudha's mesmerizing voice blazes through this solo love song that sings the new found love in a palpable manner. There might be nothing WOW about this song, yet gets your attention.
Singer : Tippu, Abhay Jodhpurkar
A bit of Ghazal in this loner song, that has some hard hitting lyrics on friendship and love. Tippu is classy and he brings the bit of feel, probably the farewell in college or when friends part over. There have been numerous songs on friends parting and going by what we hear, this should be no different and should bring the tear as well. The tabla all along brings a localized touch to it; however the end notes looks abrupt.
5. Vaan Engum
Singer : Aalap Raju,Harini,Devan, Praveen
Yet another song with a lot of Harris presence being felt all over. You'd scratch your head on which tune does this resemble, but the composer is quite clever in camouflaging it with a little variation. A catchy tune full of acoustic guitars and strings gets the song going over the interludes and transits smoothly. The English verses is tailor made for the youth, should be best experienced along with the visuals.
6. Yele Yele
Singer : Krish,Naresh Iyer
The beat is the winner, a party song with lots to groove and freak you out. Yet another friendship song, penned, crooned and sung with party mood should yet again go well with the visuals. The keyboard effect is sizzling as the energy through the song never ceases and with colloquial lyrics, serves its purpose.
All around, the songs are catchy and sure to win the hearts. On a scale of 5, it ranks 3.25.
Verdict : 3.25/5 - Smile for Harris!
