There is a Shaan Rahman vibe to Veerangana, reminiscent of his compositions in Thira, with the sister duo Amrutha and Abhirami Suresh infusing traditional elements into an engaging rock tune. Anitha Shaiq ropes a fabulous-sounding Shweta Mohan to sing the catchy mappila pattu Melakey, while M. Jayachandran himself goes behind the mic for the melodious ghazal Oru Vela, the classical kriti Nama Sametham (which makes an awkward transition to Dimthana sung by Abhirami Ajai) and Makane, the latter notable for just featuring his voice sans any instrumental accompaniments. Crossroad is an ear-pleasing musical confluence of a variety of genres!
