The soundtrack album originally includes five and an additional track composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and was released on November 22, 2009 by Think Music. The release coincided with a promotional event held at Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai, India.
Most notably the album is the fiftieth album of the Chennai-based Think Music label, which was founded in 2007. During a press conference held by Think Music in mid-March 2010, it was announced that, thanks to the enormous success of the audio, an additional track has been composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and included in the film at an appropriate place.
