'Navarasa': Listen to the first single, 'Thooriga,' from Suriya's story
Suriya fans, get ready! Makers dropped the first single, Thooriga, from the nine-part anthology Navarasa today. The actor will be leading the portion titled Guitar Kambi Mele Nindru and the melodious track is a part of that. Thooriga hits all the right beats and the chorus is instantly likable. Karthik has given the music, while the lyrics have been penned by Madhan Karky.
Ahead of the anthology's August 6 premiere on Netflix, Thooriga surely raises expectations from the music album. Beginning with soft beats, the melody catches up and the build-up is super satisfactory. The use of drums will make you groove while grinning from one ear to another. Music label Think Music had said, "You're bound to fall in love with Thooriga," and we can't disagree!
