Music review: Maro Charitra (Telugu – Mickey J Meyer)

Posted by Karthik

Prema prema is beautiful, but generic. We Don’t Care sounds good, but is so standard’ish that it is disappointing. Ninnu nannu‘s mellifluous orchestration holds the key even as the tune of terribly predictable. Strangely enough, the composer does an astounding job while retuning two of the MS Viswanathan’s original songs – Bale bale magadivoy, with a groovy, African twist and the best of the soundtrack, Ye teega puvvuno, with its hypnotic touch of melody so different from the original; ambient arrangements, combined with Shweta’s vocals give this track a mesmerizing, ethereal quality! The fatigue shows, but Mickey’s spark is intact!

    “Prema Prema” resembles “Premani Premani” from ankit pallavi and friends due to similar instrumentation and “We don’t care” resembles tune of “Ye Cheekati” from happy days but with faster tempo and initial music from “Ye teega puvvuno” is soo aero smith like.

    I like the innocence of Ninnu Nannu, such a simpler tune with gorgeous orchestration.

    @kallu_be I agree with you.

    Ninnu Nannu is awesome.especially sri madhumitha lines with simple mellifluous orchestration.
    Actually producer and director proposed to remix the ‘ye teegapuvvuno’ and ‘bale mogadivoy’.
    But mickey does in his style by using only lyrics and ofcoz he deserved.
    But i felt its better if he choosen other singer for Bale mogadivoy than swetha

    Brilliant review!!!!
    Bale Mogadivoy is a terrific track with breathtaking music arrangements. The drumish music is majestic. Cant stop listening to it!
    Initially, I had a feeling that we dont care is ordinary but gradually, the fusion of techno and trance music works wonders for the track.

    The sax(?) at 2:45 in ‘Ninnu Nannu’ is breathtaking!!
