Finally, all the songs from Suriya's upcoming movie 24 were unveiled today, right after the audio launch event, which was concluded successfully a few hours ago.
Composed by two time Oscar winning composer AR Rahman, the album of 24 houses a total of 6 tracks, crooned by various singers, whose voices have been used quite intelligently by the Mozart of Madras.
Naan Un Azhaginile
'Naan Un Azhaginile' has been sung by Arijith Singh, Chinmayi Sripada. The song boasts of a soulful rendition by both the singers and is sure to make it to your personal playlist. It has been penned by Madan Karky.
Once again written by Madan Karky, 'Mei Nigara' has a monotonous tune and would've sounded ordinary, if not for the incredible voices of Sid Sriram, Jonita Gandhi and Sanah Moidutty.
Penned by the legendary lyricist Vairamuthu, 'Punnagaye' is probably the weakest link in the entire album. The song somehow sounds hoary, which comes across as a surprise. It has been sung by Shashaa Tirupati and Haricharan Seshadri.
'Aararoo' is yet another melody and as the title suggests, it is a lullaby of sorts. Sung by Shakthisree Gopalan, 'Aararoo' is penned by Madan Karky. The song sounds soothing alright, but doesn't have any special attributes. The Telugu version of the same has been crooned by actress Nithya Menon.
My Twin Brother
'My Twin Brother' is more like a theme song. It has been sung by Srinivasa Krishnan and Hriday Gattani. Don't be surprised if this track is devoted to the antagonist, played by Suriya.
Kaalam Yen Kadhali
And of course, 'Kaalam Yen Kadhali' was released as a single a few days ago. Penned by Vairamuthu and sung by Benny Dayal, this peppy track is probably the brightest spot in the entire album.
Though the album of 24 has been lucky enough to have been received warmly by music lovers, a common man might not be all that impressed with the songs. Given the expectations it had prior to its release, this album from AR Rahman has turned out to be a surprise for many, in a negative way.
