Singers: Pradeep Kumar
Pradeep Kumar has been creating a huge familiarity with his pleasant tunes from ‘Attakathi’ followed by ‘Pizza’, ‘Villa’, ‘Cuckoo’ and now ‘Madras’. With the guitar chords on running, the song keeps us so much mesmerized. Moreover, the intonating style of Pradeep Kumar is a special bliss to the listeners.

Lyrics: Gaana Bala
Much prior to the audio release, the entire team was sure about a thing. This song would be the icing of cake and yes, as you heed to it, you’re taken to the different world. The philosophical punch and emotions are at the peak here and it connects us so much beyond the music.
Theme music – Suvar
There is so much of story laced with this theme music and it takes you through some course that Madras has an intense script. The collage of musical instruments and the tempo that keeps shuffling is a huge highlight.
Overall, ‘Madras’ as the name how special it sounds to the old Chennaites, the album proves to be so special and close to our hearts. It would be a commercial hit and win the strong critical acclaims as well.
Verdict: Breathing the essence of real ‘Madras’.
