Vivegam (translated Prudence) is the soundtrack album for the 2017 Indian Tamil film of the same name, composed by Anirudh Ravichander. The film, directed by Siva, stars Ajith Kumar and Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles, whilst Vivek Oberoi and Akshara Hassan, portray supporting roles. Kabilan Vairamuthu, Yogi B, Siva and Raja Kumari wrote the lyrics for the film. The soundtrack album featuring seven songs, were released digitally on 7 August 2017, by Sony Music.

Production

The film marks the second collaboration between Ajith Kumar and Siva, after Vedalam (2015). The song "Surviva" is a western-based EDM (electronic dance music) number. Performed by Malaysian rapper Yogi B, the song has lyrics about survival. With a tagline "Believe in yourself", this new track is believed to be along similar lines of never giving up and surviving.

The second song "Thalai Viduthalai" is in the death metal rock genre. It is based on a punchline – 'Never, ever GIVE UP!' that became a rage after fans saw Ajith saying in a high-pitched tone in the teaser earlier. Thalai Viduthalai is written by director Siva. The philosophy of the song is, irrespective of the number of times you have been knocked down, as long as you are willing to stand up again and fight back, you are not a failure. The heavy metal track and adrenaline pumping lyrics match the larger than life onscreen and off-screen image of Ajith. Besides composing tunes, Anirudh Ravichander has also lent his voice to the song along with Harish Swaminathan.

The third song "Kaadhalada" is a classic number. In one of the recent interviews with a leading daily, Kabilan Vairamuthu, who has penned the lyrics for Kadhalaada song revealed how he got this opportunity. He said, I was initially called in to work on the script and co-write the screenplay. That was my first job in Vivegam, and during a discussion, this opportunity to write the lyrics for a song came up. The lyricist did not reveal much about the song before its release but opened up about the film. Kabilan is working with Ajith Kumar for the first time.
