"Vandha Mala" - Singers: Arun Raja Kamaraji, Gaana Bala, Karunaas; Lyrics: Arun Raja Kamaraji
"The Gaana specialist comes again for a retro number with open stringed guitars. Play with the hi-hat in the background, Bala's quirky voice and the funny lyrics work big time. The guitar solo in the first BGM is fresh and new. Karunaas' voice and the comical fillers enhance the title track." – Behindwoods
"Catchy tunes and witty lyrics are the main highlight of this song. The voice of Gaana Bala and Arun Raja Kamaraj were simply spectacular and it will give a soothing air to the ears of listeners. The mood of the song is simply awesome, and the feel is evidently visible in each lines of the lyrics."- Movieclickz
"Unnale" - Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghoshal; Lyrics: Na Muthukumar
"A symphonic arrangement for a pathos. Chorus, Haiko, Cello sessions, Harp, Clarinet, Violin and powerful voices give you a soulful experience. Give the time and space, the song will grow onto you." – Behindwoods
"A sure shot chartbuster in December 2014. The song is blessed with the voice of Shankar Mahadevan and Shreya Goshal, and it will surely take the listeners to a new world of love and ecstasy. The use of violin in the song should be noticed, and this is one of the main highlights of this song." – Movieclickz
"Sattena Idi Mazhai Singers" - GV Prakash Kumar, Megha; Lyrics: Na Muthukumar
"The typical GV track is here. R 'n' B, melodic voice, peppy loops and guitar strumming make it a casual listen. The claps used as the metronome, Grand Piano in the prelude, the strong bass-line and the female voice portions are the attractive elements." – Behindwoods
"The composer himself has sung this song, and it will be liked by some genre of listeners. For some people, this song might be pure crap, but for some others, it will be elegant in all means." –Movieclickz
"Un Vizhigalil" - Singers: Harini; Lyrics: Na Muthukumar
"Does Harini have the softest voice on earth?? A definite yes! Un Vizhigalil has got it all to instantly put a smile on your face. Live guitars, flute in the interlude and the subtle improvisations on the landing note are thorough experimentation." – Behindwoods
"A perfect romantic song from the sweet vocals of Harini. The songis special in all means; let it be the singing lyrics or the composition. The usage of instruments in the song is simply spectacular, and this song is surely going to rule the Tamil song channels for the coming three or four months." – Movieclickz
"Anbe Anbe", Singers: G.V. Prakash Kumar, Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar
"A rock number. The guitars in distortion, tight acoustic drumming and GV's voice are the major highlights of the song. However this song might need the visuals to experience it better." - Behindwoods
'An absolute melody with some thought provoking lyrics. This song will surely impress people who love to go in depth of the lyrics of the song." – Movieclickz
The Dead Are Back – Darling theme
"A track composed to comprehend the visuals. The over-powering piano chords, chorus, humming parts and horrific sound effects might get all the mileage for the song through the visuals." – Behindwoods
"Instrumental music completely filled with mystery and wildness." - Movieclickz
