Ilayathalapathy Vijay fans have been constantly waiting for this moment to celebrate the musical emergence of ‘Puli’, which happened recently. The film is directed by Chimbu Devan and is produced by Thameems and P.T. Selvakumar with Hansika Motwani and Shruthi Haasan playing the female lead roles opposite Vijay. Devi Sri Prasad has composed music for this album and he is teaming up with Vijay after the success of ‘Sachin’ and ‘Villu’.
No words! The song captivates our senses from the first time we hear it. The single track promo that was unveiled before a week prior to the audio launch made it more enhancing. The well tuned note by DSP, which is completely different from his usual style is an additional highlight. The vocalising style by Vijay and Shruthi Haasan are completely amusing.
As it happens in many songs composed by Devi Sri Prasad, the sound and noise eclipses the voices of Shankar Mahadevan and MM Manasi. Perhaps, there are chances for the song to take a upshot during the release of visuals.
The percussions become the major strength in this film with the singers like Sooraj Santhosh, MLR Karthikeyan, Chinmayi and Anitha make the song sound at its best of their efficient efforts. The song has been carrying forth an immense sound, but again at some points gets too noisy. Yet again, the splendiferous visuals by Natty would be adding some additional strength to this film and for the songs as well.
Singers: Javed Ali and Pooja AV
As the title of this song suggests, it’s a tribal song that gains some momentum with the beats and it looks like this is pictured on Vijay and Shruthi Haasan. As mentioned in some of the above songs, this would be making its way to a greater appreciation when heard with the visuals.
Sometimes, the lyrics and composing would be finely done, but it would gradually lose its prominence, when there is a lack of synch. Such is the impact of Puli song that is rendered by Mano and Priyadarshini.
As the album comes to an end, the track ‘Manidha Manidha’ stands out to be a perfect track that sounds more inspiring and emotionally bonding. It will surely make the listeners more adherent and the visuals will bring some additional strength.
On the whole, Puli songs are completely composed in favour of Vijay fans and they will surely rejoice over this composition from Devi Sri Prasad. But when analysed critically, it’s ‘Yaendi Yaendi’ and ‘Manidha Manidha’ that favours our interests instantly and others might take some time to brew up.
Verdict: Well tailored album for Ilayathalapathy fans
