Just three days ahead of the audio release, the much-awaited track list of Vijay’s upcoming film Bairavaa was revealed on Monday. The music album consists of five songs sung by noted singers, including Haricharan. Legendary lyricists Vairamuthu has penned the lyrics for four songs. Young and talented playback singers Vijaynarain and Singer Darshana KT have sung the duet called Azhagiya Soodana Poovey for the film.
Music composer Santhosh Narayanan has said it has been an honour to be a part of one of the most anticipated films of 2017 in Tamil and added that he had an “immense” fun scoring tunes for the Vijay-starrer. “Here is the full track list of #Bairavaa. We had immense fun working on this soundtrack and greatly honoured to be a part of the movie,” he posted on his Twitter page.
Meanwhile, Vijay has also sung a song titled Papa Papa along with Priyadarshini for the film. Earlier, the composer had praised Vijay for doing an “incredible” job in singing the peppy number. It is believed in the fraternity that films which have songs sung by Vijay become hits at the box office.
The album also has a rap song with Tamil and English verses written and sing by Arunraja Kamaraj and Roshan Jamrock respectively. The song titled Varlaam Varlaam Vaa is also the title theme of the film, which was used in the teaser that was released on Diwali, which went viral on YouTube with more than 12 million views.
Recently, the popular music company Lahari Music bagged the audio rights of the film. The label also holds the music rights of films like Baahubali: The Conclusion, Khaidi No 150 and Gutamiputra Satakarni.
The song album of Bairavaa will be released directly online on December 23 as makers of the film decided not to hold a grand function for the music launch. The filmmakers dropped the idea of the grand audio launch event in the light of recent unfortunate incidents in Tamil Nadu, including the passing of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

The post-production work is going on in full swing as the filmmakers have planned to release the film on Pongal next year. The big-ticket film is also a milestone for Vijay as it is his 60th film in a career spanning nearly 25 years. The expectations from the film are also very high given that Vijay’s last outing, Theri, was one of the top grossing films in Tamil this year.
Bairavaa, directed by Bharathan, is said to have a strong social message. The film has actor Keerty Suresh as its female lead and is bankrolled by Vijaya Productions.
