Shakti (Music review), Telugu – Mani Sharma
Thaliya thaliya offers the perfect platform for NTR Jr to showcase yet another song with moving-the-shirt-collar-up-and-down dance movement, while Prema desam is just functional regurgitated Mani Sharma melody. Mathileka pichiga fares slightly better – assembly-line Andhra-style ‘cowboy’ music. Between the 2 chants, Mahishasura Mardhini‘s ambient remix works superbly, compared to the filmy and rasping Maha Rudra Shakti. Surro surra is funnily catchy and the Javed Ali – Suchitra combo scrapes it through, while Yamaga unde is plain catchy – the latter, featuring Karunya and Malavika, obviously works much better! It’s time Mani Sharma threw in the towel and tried something fresh.
