Aalaporaan Tamizhan  Get ready to be blown away :

Vijay's Aalaporaan Tamizhan is out, and boy we can't get enough of AR Rahman already. The song is juxtaposed with magical nativity that dwells hard into the pride of Tamil culture. Starts on a vibrant note, the opening song is colloquial mix of folk upped electronically by the Oscar winner. With an array of singers – Pooja, Deepak, Kailash Kher, Sathyaprakash take the lead in this highly energetic number.

With tabla, tavil and heavy drumming climaxing the bass level, the mild transition comes with gentle flute and Nadhaswaram which is soothing to listen. The song itself competes between the instrumentation and lyrical department as the verses dig deep into the sands of a tamizhan's history and takes pride in revealing the richness it brings to one’s identity. ARR visits, folk occasionally, when he does its innovation and freshness at its best.

Neethane from Mersel is a breeze

After Aalapora Tamizhan turned out to be a blockbuster for its high voltage, the shift to melody in Neethane is mesmerizing and will make you go on repeat. Shreya Goshal takes lead and brings that softness of a blossoming love in her vocals even as AR Rahman’s surprisingly interferes on a good note as both of them play with the medley on a promising note. Both their vocals are contrast, yet that is balanced craftly showing the magnitude of ARR’s experience.

The Veena is divinely melodious even as the strings continue to play along with the beats in the background. Neethane scores on all levels, Vivek’s simplistic romance dwelled lyrics creep into our minds slowly as the first time listen would definitely go to Shreya Goshal’s honey coated voice. Before stepping into the first interlude, ARR hums Yaache Yaache so very beautifully and Shreya responds even better with Yaale Yaale.

Verdict : Love is certainly in the air with Neethane!
