About music in Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru?

Mani Sharma is the music director in Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru. You would have usually heard kuthu paattu and commercial songs from him but in this film, he has scored music in line with the script which is a light hearted subject. It will be very different from his usual style. There are four songs and a theme one. All of them are refreshing and light.
