Billa - Audio Review ( Tamil )

The title song and Vethalaya’s remixes take a leaf from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s techno update for the original, Hindi Don’s remake. But both the tracks are surprisingly jarring with a nauseatingly overdone sound. Seval kodi too is strangely indifferent with a stock tune and stale rhythms, while the theme music is pretty assembly-line. Thankfully Yuvan’s innovation comes to the fore with Naan mattum and Sei - a set of experimental, but groovy tracks, complete with exotic interludes and orchestration. Given Vishnuvaradhan’s past success with Yuvan’s music (Arindhum ariyaamalum & Pattiyal), it’s surprising that a large part of Billa’s music is rather mediocre.
