25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007



Billa Theme

Movie: Billa
Composer: Yuvan Shankar Raja

What makes this short piece work is that it doesn’t wander on with a single theme and it ends at right time with right punch. It has an ultra cool, techno orchestration which is in synch with the feel of the movie. Initially, we get a mysterious e-tune (like the one from Manmadhan theme), a rock guitar takes over giving us a head shaking rock bit and only when the solo guitar piece starts almost at the end, we come to know that all those variations are to build up to this ultimate guitar theme. Even though it is short, I sense that completeness in this song.

Suresh,

r u aware of the fact the the main theme of billa perfectly sounds similar to the guitar piece of Vasamilla Malaridhu song from Oru Thalai ragam.

u will be surprised if u listen to this song.

am not sure whether this is an accidental one or inspired/lifted one. sounds very very similar.

do listen to that track and giv me ur opinion
