Anjaan - Music Review - Suriya, Samantha










Song Name - Bang Bang Bang
Movie - Anjaan
Singer - K.G. Ranjith
Music - Yuvanshankar Raja
Lyrics - Karky


The song that was featured in the teaser. As a song its an above average one, but considering the fact its used as the face of the album, should have been better. The 'Bang Bang' portions may cause unintentional laughs, the first few times, but if you get used to that its a fairly okay song, but disappointing to be called the flagship song of the movie. The lyrics do have punch but overall its underwhelming. The song has been shot and cut stylishly with Suriya is great style and attitude showing of 'Raju Bhai'. The choreography is just average.

Song Name - Sirippu En
Movie - Anjaan
Singer - M.M. Manasi
Music - Yuvanshankar Raja
Lyrics - Viveka


The item song in the film, picturised on Chitrangada Singh. Item numbers are like mass masala movies, the lyrics may make no sense and at times absurd. Same is the case here. But since i heard the song in a 'Lyric video' made matters worse. Lyrics were laughable, music is below average. Thesongs lacks the punch or energy to be called an item number, Now everything depends upon the video and Chitrangadha, if the song has to work. Manasi has done great job singing the song, just that the song doesn't deliver.



Song Name - Ek Do Teen
Movie - Anjaan
Singer - Suriya & Andrea Jeremiah
Music - Yuvanshankar Raja
Lyrics - Na. Muthukumar




Suriya too jumps into the actor-singers bandwagon. While most of the actors chose a genre f song comfirtable to them unfortunately Suriya isn't that lucky. First of all, it doesn't sound like Suriya, and one who doesn;t know wouldn't recognize him at all. Second, eventhough he sound good a melody would have been apt for him than this unexciting dappam kuthu type track. The choreography is average once again & Samantha's costumes were horrible, not suiting her at all, hope atleast the situation or character justifies it.



Song Name - Kadhal Aasai
Movie - Anjaan
Singer - Yuvanshankar Raja & Sooraj Santhosh
Music - Yuvanshankar Raja
Lyrics - Kabilan

One of the better tracks from the album, but really wish somebody other than YSR had song the song or at least there is a reprise version with somebody else. The lyrics are good. YSR has given a neat composition. Talked about as the best melody in the album, the song can grow on you after multiple listening. 


Song Name - Oru Kan Jaadai
Movie - Anjaan
Singer - Benny Dayal & Shweta Pandit
Music - Yuvanshankar Raja
Lyrics - Viveka

Undoubtedly the best track from the album. Finally a song that gives the glimpse of vintage YSR. Feels like will be another stylishly shot song. Benny Dayal has done a great job, like they always but all Shweta gets to do is humm here & there (May be there's another version, waiting for Jukebox) . Lyrics suits the mood of the song. 


Another disappointing audio album for a Suriya starrer. Expectations were higher considering the magnitude of the project, but YSR fails to deliver. Anjaan is a better album compared to Singam 2, but expectations were also more  from the team. Singam 2 did exceedingly well at boxoffice despite of this, so hoping for the same for 'Anjaan' and (still) waiting for a grand YSR come back.
