The album became a chartbuster, with the song "Unnai Kandaene" being listed among the top ten songs of the year and earning him a name in the industry. Sify in its review described Dharan's songs and background score as "a major highlight" of the film, which itself became a commercial successful as well. His next release was the soundtrack album to the low-budget horror thriller Sivi that starred newcomers. The album received very positive reviews and response as well, while Dharan's background score was highly appreciated by critics and described as "haunting", and "top-class" that gives the film "its true color". Behindwoods, in particular, praised his work, citing that Dharan had "enjoyed his work and threatened the audience] continuously with his music", further adding that he had understood his role "perfectly well" and "delivered the goods with a sharp flourish".
The film, despite garnering favorable reviews, performed poorly at the box office. Only 2009, his next album, the soundtrack to the gangster film Laadam, released, which prominently featured Hip-hop music, cronned by popular Malaysian rappers Dr. Burn and Emcee Jezz. The film, directed by Prabu Solomon, also bombed at the box office, failing to propel his career. In 2010, Dharan first release was Bharath's Thambikku Indha Ooru, which, too was highly unsuccessful at the box office, while his next release would be Siddu, collaborating again with K.
Bhagyaraj. The soundtrack to the film was released in 2009 already, for which he made composer Yuvan Shankar Raja and director Venkat Prabhu to sing each a song, with the former's song "Poove Poove" emerging a chartbuster. He makes his Malayalam debut with The Thriller, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and is currently working on the Salsa-based romantic-musical Podaa Podi which also features a Bhangra number, starring Silambarasan. Upon the release on 10th October 2012, the album became a big chartbuster.
