Vivegam, the action spy-thriller starring Tamil superstar Ajith, is set to be released on August 24 and the soundtrack for the movie(which was released last month) is already making waves with the Tamil audience. The movie is director Siva’s third collaboration with Ajith, and also marks the Kollywood debut of Vivek Oberoi and Kamal Hassan’s daughter Akshara Hassan.
Music for the movie has been directed by Anirudh Ravichander, and includes hit tracks such as Veriyara and Thalai Viduthalai. The music rights have been purchased by the TV giant SUN TV for an undisclosed amount, but industry watchers have claimed that the movie has already made in excess of 120 crores even before release, a record of sorts.
The movie has been shot in multiple locations across Europe, following the exploits of the spy played by Ajith. The teaser and trailer for the film, released back in July, had created quite a buzz in the industry and the release of the soundtrack was an added bonus.
The track Veriyara (whose lyrics were penned down by the director Siva himself), trending on Twitter in the lead up to the movie’s release next week, is the climax song. The track is 4:39 long and has been sung by M Mansi and Poorvi Koutish while Thalai Viduthalai is somewhat of a comeback song, and its message of never giving up has become a raging hit with Ajith fans who first heard those words from Ajith in the trailer for the movie.
