Anirudh hits right out of the park with the laid-back Jazzy melody Megham Karukatha. Anirudh consistently keeps the background engaging with Yuri Villar's Saxophone and Jon-Paul Frappier's trumpet which effectually makes up for the passable Dhanush's vocals. Especially loved the way the trumpet sounds flow in tandem with the main melody. All this factors into the song being highly successful and well recieved by the public.
Thiruchitrambalam was released theatrically on 18 August 2022, to positive reviews from the critics with praise for the performances of the cast and music. The film was a huge critical and commercial success at the box office and is continuing to go strong.
