 Jaganmohini, a remake of yesteryear mythological thriller by Vittalacharya, is directed by N K Viswanathan and it stars Namitha, Raja, Vadivelu, Nila, Jothilakhsmi along with others.

Maestro Illayaraja has scored music for the movie and has come with catchy songs. The likes of Chitra, Ujaini, Swetha among others have sung the songs. Lyrics by Vaali and Muthukumar worth a mention.

1. Ponmani Theril - Listen here

Singer: Yeya Shinde

Illayaraja's mastery in coming up with catchy notes is the hallmark of the song. The wonderful chorus combined with catchy percussion gives sheen. Though the tune sounds familiar, the pace at which the song goes makes one fall for it. Shinde's voice is adequate.

2. Nilavu Varum Neram - Listen here

Singer: Swetha, Ujaini

A soft number. What strikes instantly is its lovely rhythms. Watch out for its interesting interlude. Swetha and Ujaini give their best oozing with energy. Muthukumar's lyric sets the right momentum. The song is more of technology meeting vintage melody.

3. Poothadhu Poovu - Listen here

Singer: Rahul Nambiar, Rita

Seemingly inspired by a classical tune, Raja has come out with a song that is typical of his style. Melody from Raja's hut is at its best. Tune your ears for youthful lyric by Vaali. Rita and Rahul have sung in contrasting styles. Soft and sweet is what the song is all about.

4. Kattikkitta Raasa - Listen here

Singer: Rahul, Nancy Vincent, Bogi

It is the best in the album. A fusion of melody and western music, it has all essential touches of Illayaraja. The song has catchy rhythms and light music interludes. The trio of Nancy, Rahul and Bogi are at their best.

5. Unnai Vittal - Listen here

Singer: Chitra

Isn't it a delight to listen to Chitra's voice especially when the song is set to tunes by maestro Illayaraja? She sings the sing with utmost ease but strikes one instantly. A racy rhythm, the song has everything in it to strike the masses. The percussion of Illayaraja's music always stands unique. And it is in this song.

On the whole, the audio of `Jaganmohini' is of Illayaraja's touch. He has proved his mastery in scoring music for a mythology movie, which is a rarity these days.
