Racha (Music review), Telugu – Mani Sharma
Mani Sharma skilfully tones down the Bappi’ness of Gang Leader’s Vaana vaana in its remix, and maintains a nice blend of Bollywood and Telugu sound. Dillaku dillaku and Oka paadam are shockingly similar to Harris Jayaraj’s material – the former owes it to Anniyan’s Randakka, while the latter, despite the harmonica similarity, holds a lot more life than the average Harris track. Singareniundhi has a manic rhythm and is catchy, but doesn’t add up to much, leaving the title song to do the honors – templatized, but still a foot-tapping listen! Even in post-Mani Sharma Telugu cinema, he hasn’t changed much.
