The first song from Suriya's forthcoming movie "24" was released Monday, March 14. The single track titled "Kaalam En Kadhali" and its Telugu version titled "Kaalam Na Priyasi" were unveiled by Eros Now.
Two-time Oscar Award winner AR Rahman has composed the song, which is crooned by Benny Dayal and written by Vairamuthu.
The songs of both the versions have impressed the listeners with many describing it, "slow poison" as the impact of the numbers continue to improve with each hearing. People have shared good words about the songs on Twitter and readers can find selected-few comments here:

The teaser of "24" was recently released and went viral among the South Indian movie goers. The brilliant visuals backed by Suriya's electrifying screen presence and AR Rahman's background score were the highlights of the video.
However, the audio of "24" will be launched later this month in Hyderabad where both the Tamil and Telugu versions of the songs will be unveiled. It will be followed by the trailer release, which is expected to be out in the first week of April.
Vikram Kumar's "24" is a science-fiction movie about time travel. The film has been simultaneously shot in Tamil and Telugu. Samantha and Nithya Menen are the female leads in the flick. Suriya himself has produced the film on his home banner of 2D Entertainment.
The movie was supposed to release April 14. It is now reported that the film has been pushed to the last week of the month.
