The usage of saxophone and funny trumpets add cool value to the track and the singer Thomas Andrews does a great job in giving it a funky feel. Lyrics by Sreemani are fun filled and the chord progression sounds quite novel and interesting. The track has an interesting cartoonish feel in the interludes which was never tried before by any composer.
Bujjima Bujjima is an interesting composition with local beats and western styled singing by Gold Devaraj. The interludes are uniquely styled with techno sounds and native beats - the wonderful electric guitar does the magic. This track has interesting bass work and the peculiar fun element of Ghibran’s compositions. The changeover point in the second interlude is another highlight of the track.
The lovely melody Vadhantune Nenu Vadhantune sung by the breezy Chinmayee arrives in the midst of unique rhythm and great chord progression. The track has a great carnatic melody touch with modern orchestration that makes it stand out as one of the best compositions in recent times. Chinmayee performs out of her comfort zone with great ease and comfort. The second interlude reaches a fantastic crescendo with her solo humming.
The album reaches the inevitable party state with Coma Coma sung by the talented Kunal Ganjawala. The track has a contrasting modern feel and the unique chord progressions stand out. Interludes have a fun feel with various layers of percussions and great riffs. The interesting piano touches give the composition a unique touch.
