Durai Singam (Suriya) as we know is a powerful cop, a loud cop who likes to find a permanent solution to an issue. Someone who thinks big and doesn't mind going to any extent to taste success. His practices might not always be legal but his main purpose would be for a greater good.

The Singam series consists of superficial cop stories. To enjoy it, you will have to distance yourself from reality. The treatment could be loud and not practically possible, but you get 100% action packed fun. This edition of Singam is no different when it comes to entertainment.

When you are going to bring back a powerful character like Durai Singam, you definitely need a strong and never-heard-before story. It has an interesting core story and Hari has done full justice to the script with an engaging screenplay.

Soori's comedy doesn't work what so ever. In most Hari films the comedy slows the tempo of the film. Though Hari has understood that and reduced the number of comedy scenes, none of the few that were shown in this film attracts you and sometimes even annoys you. The editor does have a major work to do as he has so many scenes to maneuver around than a normal commercial film. Though you laud him for giving us a crisp product, we also need to point out the fact that the final product is not smooth and few scenes get over even before it starts.

Durai Singam looks just like how he was 7 years ago in Singam 1. It is fascinating to see how someone could maintain his looks. Suriya has given it all, be it the fierce dialogue delivery or his mannerisms. This is Suriya's best performance since Singam 2. Durai Singam is now a part of Suriya's life and we believe he continues this franchise.

Does Hari create the purpose of a second heroine because we have seen enough romance between Suriya and Anushka in the earlier parts? We think that is why he created Hansika's role in Singam 2 and Shruti Haasan in this movie. Though Shruti Hassan has a more significant role to play here, her comedy portions with Soori and a couple of her romantic scenes were a distraction.

A script as intense as Si3 actually doesn't need any songs. Songs hamper the pace of the film especially when none of the songs make a significant impact. Even the background score doesn't quite solve the purpose. Hari's dialogues are rhyming as usual and work well for the film. But negative remarks against Australia could have been avoided.


Verdict: Duraisingam strikes again! Suriya and Hari don't disappoint you in this Singam franchise.

Album Release Date : Nov 27,2016

O Sone Sone 


Singers : Javed Ali, Priya Subramaniyam, MC Vickey
Lyrics:PA.Vijay,MC Vickey


O Sone Sone is that song from Harris’s album that has lyrics that are whacky and have a catchy tune to it. Javed Ali’s voice is perfect for the song. MC Vickey’s rap portion adds to it well. The song has hosaka and many other meaningless words but makes us like it, thanks to the tune. The guitar portions in between have worked well too.


Mudhal Murai 


Singers:Harish Raghavendra,Swetha Mohan,N.S.K Ramya, Karthik
Lyrics : Thamarai,N.S.K Ramya


A melody with one of the best voices. Lyrics by Thamarai are impressive as usual. The beats get a little repetitive but the tune is catchy as we expect it to be. Vocals by Swetha Mohan, Harish Raghavendra are pleasing to the ears. The second part of the song that has Karthik rendering his voice is also pretty good.


Universal Cop


Singers: Christoper,Dinesh Kanagarathnam,Krish
Lyrics : Vivek,Dinesh Kanagarathnam


Universal Cop is another fast paced song by Harris for S3! It fantasizes the kind of cop Suriya is in S3. Strong,quick and unbeatable sort of a worship song that has a monotonous tone to it. The song’s rap portions are good. Harris’s special saxophone sounding voice is present in this song.


He’s My Hero


Singer : Malavika Manoj
Lyrics:Director Hari,Malavika Manoj


The song is an English jazz-based carol. It has lyrics predominantly in English with a few Tamil lines in between. It is a pleasant jazz number with a single beat as the tempo playing throughout.
Vocals by Malavika Manoj are good.


Wi Wi Wi Wi Wifi 


Singers: Karthik,Nikita Gandhi,Christoper
Lyrics:Director Hari,Harris Jayaraj


Wi Wi Wi Wi Wifi has a very dance based theme. It is a song that has Nikita Gandhi showing why she is such a good singer. Karthik does well as usual. The song has a few variations and layers after it’s first minute. It is a very danceable song and has something catchy about it too! Perfect for the commercial genre from Harris Jayaraj.


Mission To Sydney


Singer:Lady Kash
Lyrics : Director Hari,Lady Kash


Mission to Sydney is a proper commercial rock number that might suit the pace of the film. This is also a song that has lyrics by the singer and director themselves. Lady Kash has scored well with her peculiar voice. The song seems a little abrupt towards the end but ends with the same bang it started with.


S3 Theme Music


Singer:MC Vickey
Lyrics: Director Hari


S3 theme is a proper commercial theme that is super fast paced. It is perfect for the kind of cop story that Singam is. MC Vickey’s vocals and Hari’s lyrics are good and apt for the song and genre. It, however, is not a goosebumps theme music. It just has the pace required for the film.



Verdict: A proper commercial album from Harris Jayaraj for Suriya's cop story! An apt album with fast paced songs.
