Oh My Friend (Music review), Telugu – Rahul Raj & Anil Reddy
The title song and Maa daddy pockets‘ highlight is their guitaring work even as the tunes falter into predictable zones, much like the retro-poppish Vegam vegam, but Rahul gets the tune perfectly right in the short Nuvvu nenu that has Benny Dayal’s fabulous vocals, and in Aalochana vasthene, with superb vocals by Ranjith and Sangeeta Prabhu. Late Anil’s only song, Sri Chaitanya is functional, with added zest in the lyrics, while Nenu thaanani seems jaded despite the effort in the engaging rhythm. Even as the soundtrack gets the attitude right, the tunes are way too familiar to make an impact.
