Vedalam songs were released last night amid much anticipation from fans and music lovers as young music sensation Anirudh has composed tunes for Thala Ajith for the very first time. So what does the album of this film has to offer? Continue reading our music review to know.
First of all, this album is blessed with songs of various
genres. We have a melodious track in 'Uyir Nadhi Kalangudhae' which
has been beautifully crooned by Ravishankar and then we have a folk
based dance number titled 'Aaluma Doluma', which carries with it
some interesting lyrics by Rokesh.
While 'Veera Vinayaka', which sounds like the first song of the
movie, is nice and peppy, 'Don't You Mess With Me' is a hip hop
based song with lots of electronic backing.
But the baffling factor about the album of Vedalam is
that songs like 'Veera Vinayaka' and 'Don't You Mess With Me'
sounds as though it has been sung by just Anirudh and Shruti Haasan
respectively, though the tracklist claims otherwise.
'Veera Vinayaka' is supposed to have two voices, that of Anirudh
and Vishal Dadlani's. But it sounds like the entire song has been
sung by Anirudh alone, for his voice has largely masked Vishal

distinctive voices of Anirudh and Vishal. A conscious attempt
'Don't You Mess With Me'
Though this particular song is racy and fills your head with
electronic beats, the after-effects of the song might leave you
recollecting 'Stylish Tamilachi' from Arrambam, composed
by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
There are couple of things that stand out in this song; the way
Anirudh has sung it and Rokesh's unique lyrics. Watch out for the
crack in Anirudh's voice at certain places in the song. It looks
like a conscious effort by the Rockstar. The song also has some
amazing beats that will make you dance for its tunes.
'Uyir Nadhi Kalangudhae'
'Uyir Nadhi Kalangudhae' is a giveaway that points at the
sentimental aspect of Vedalam. It also provides a much
needed break from all the electronic beats as it has a soothing
effect, thereby deserves a place in your playlist.
'The Theri Theme'
Taking a leaf out from the book of trance music, Anirudh has
indeed fabricated a 'theri' theme for the film. This type of theme
will especially be loved by Ajith fans when it is played on the big
