This song sung by M G Sreekumar is definitely the pick of the album. You could hear the vintage M G Sreekumar in this song, doing something which only he could do. The song starts off with a classical touch and later shifts to an energizing song with some peppy tunes. The lyrics are interesting and is expected to enter the chartbusters soon.

It seems like this song is set in the background of a wedding ceremony. There are a host of singers who have lend their voices for this song. Music directors have opted for a bit of Punjabi style songs and the lyrics have both Hindi and Malayalam mixed in equal fashion. Eagerly waiting to see how Priyadarshan has picturized this song.
Singer: M G Sreekumar, Shreya Jayadeep
Lyrics: B K Harinarayanan
This one is a cute little song which seemingly establishes the bondage of a father and his daughter, in the film. The lyrics are meaningful and the musicians have employed minimal instruments giving due importance to the voices of M G Sreekumar and Shreya Pradeep
Singer: M G Sreekumar
The song Chirimukilum has some striking resemblances to some songs of Priyadarshan movies from the past. The beats of the song would remind you of the song Nilaave Maayumo from the film Minnaram. Probably, the song would enter your favorites list after repeated hearing.
Altogether, songs of Oppam would take you down the memory lane and after a gap, we have got a Priyadarshan film with some quality songs. The tracks of the film is fresh when recent trends are considered and has the elements of nostalgia in it. More importantly, M G Sreekumar is back with a bang as a singer.
