The music was scored by noted Tamil musician Yuvan Shankar Raja. The soundtrack, which released on 28 April 2007, features 9 tracks with lyrics provided by Suddala Ashok Teja and Ramajogaiah Sastry. One of the songs, "Korameenu", was retained from the original Tamil film Chithiram Pesuthadi, composed by Sundar C. Babu, whilst two other songs were earlier used in a Tamil film.

The album became a "big hit" as the songs gained immense popularity upon release.[1][2] Also reviews were very favorable, praising composer Yuvan Shankar Raja and describing his compositions as "superb", "a major strength to the movie" and "excellent".[3][4]
