Composer(s): Yuvan Shankar Raja

Parapara, its Hey Salaa (Aegan) touches aside, is peppy, and Vijay Yesudas and Ranjith lend superb vocal purchase. Konjalaai, on the other hand, is trademark Yuvan melody, high on auto-tune and electronic sounds, while Kaakaponnu, despite being saddled with a passable tune, makes up for it in the orchestration department with an interesting mix of hip-hop and folk elements. The sombre Innum Enna similarly shows promise in terms of arrangements, but Yuvan's voice sadly doesn't make the cut. Still, the soundtrack manages to end on a high with the trendy hip-hop number Champion. Yuvan Shankar Raja, though in much better form, has seen better days.
