Music directors know what kind of music the audience will expect from Ilayathalapathy Vijay's films. Especially, Vijay Antony, who has delivered sensational hits for the actor in Sukran and Vettaikaaran, understands the taste of the Kaavalan star's fans and keeping their demands in mind, he has composed the songs. The music director has joined hands with the 37-year-old actor for the third time with upcoming Tamil movie Velayudham. Let's see what he has offered. Read for the music review.

Ratthathin Rathame
Singers: Haricharan, Sri Madhumitha, Prasanna, Supriya Joshi
Lyrics: Annamalai
For all those Ilayathalapathy's hardcore fans, Vijay Antony kick-starts the proceedings with a meaningful number. Undoubtedly, this has been tuned keeping Vijay's political plans in mind. Annamalai's lyrics are good and Haricharan has not lost the opportunity to give life to the song. He is joined by Sri Madhumita and chorus.

Molachhu Moonu
Singers: Prasanna, Supriya Joshi
Lyrics: Viveka
Here comes a number to give you a romantic feel. Prasanna and Supriya Joshi have lent their voice for the melody track for which Viveka has penned the lyrics. Vijay Antony has full control over the instruments, as he changes the phase of it according to the singers' renditions.

Chillax
Singers: Karthik, Charulatha Mani
Lyrics: Annamalai
The triumph card of the album is out in the form of 'Chillax...'. The 4.45 minute number holds your attention throughout the song. Charulatha Mani steals the show and overshadows Karthik in the track. Her varying voice is a treat to hear in the kuthu song. Surely, Vijay's steps for the number are interesting to watch.

Maayam Seidhayo
Singers: Sangeetha Rajeshwaran
Lyrics: Viveka
Sangeetha Rajeshwaran goes solo for the song. The peppy number reminds one of his first love. It is probably shot on Genelia D'Souza, when she falls in love with Vijay. The song will have more appeal, when we hear the song with visuals.

Sonna Puriyathu
Vocals: Vijay Antony, Veera Shankar
Lyrics: Siva Shanmugham
Vijay's trademark song is out. Veera Shankar kick-starts the number with his engaging voice. Soon after a minute, Vijay Antony takes away the responsibility of entertaining the audience by the former. The moment he starts crooning, it instantly makes one to shake his legs. The energetic track is out and out mass number. The interesting element of the track is that 1000 dancers have shaken their legs along with the actor.

Velayudham
Singers: Vijay Antony, Mark
Lyrics: Priyan
Vijay Antony and Mark come behind the mike for the title track. The song is a mixture of Tamil and English lyrics, which are penned by Priyan. The music director has used rich instruments to have an explosive appeal in the film.

Verdict:
Vijay Antony's music has met the expectations of the audience. The album has all kinds of songs and the music director has targeted the mass as well as class listeners. Some of the song will have to be heard quite a few times before you see yourself humming. 'Chillax...', 'Sonna puriyathu...', and 'Ratthathin Rathame...'.
