A top-notch actor, a promising director and a leading music composer... When these three men come together, the output is a musical bonanza. For songs from 'Rajapattai' live up to the film's name, as they have got the power to clear the way and make it to the top.

As usual, Yuvan Shankar Raja has utilized the service of a battery of talented singers, who have given energy and enthusiasm to the album. Despite his regular style, Yuvan has also made some new attempts which needs appreciation.

A close look at songs from 'Rajapattai', which marks Vikram's return to commercial cinema:

Podi Paiyan Polave - Listen here
Singer: Haricharan
Lyricist: Yugabharathi
Simplicity is the best decoration. Proving this is 'Podi Paiyan Polave...' With a straight forward tune and easy beats, the song makes its first impression in an impressive way. Haricharan gives shape to Yuvan's tune and Yugabharathi's words with his voice.

Villathi Villain - Listen here
Singers: Mano, Malathi
Lyricist: Yugabharathi
M for Mano, Malathi, music and masti. Veteran Mano is back in full form. In the company of the ever energetic Malathi, the singer gives us an interesting song, which of course has loads of paeans on Vikram. Yuvan proves once again that he is in good form.

Paniye Panipoove - Listen here
Javed Ali, Renuka
A melodious number in which Yuvan Shankar Raja seems to have worked overtime. 'Paniye Panipoove...', sung by Javed Ali and Renuka will be remembered for its smooth tune and soft composition. Yugabharathi's beautiful words add more suaveness to the product.

Laddu Laddu Rendu - Listen here
Vikram, Priyadarshini, Suchitra
This song is already making waves, for the media is writing too much about it thanks to the two beautiful women- Shriya Saran and Reemma Sen - who appear in this special number. The Chiyaan has crooned it with utmost energy in the company of Priyadarshini and Suchitra. Get ready to shake your legs as Yuvan rocks big time in this number.

Podi Paiyan Polave - Listen here
Singer: Haricharan
Lyricist: Yugabharathi
Not just life, but this album too is a circle. Things are back to square one when Rajapattai song-list concludes with 'Podi Paiyaan Polave...', the song with which it started. In a sense, it is a double bonanza to the listeners.

'Rajapattai' songs on the whole are a treat to those who like an interesting collage of music...
