Dhammu (Music review), Telugu – MM Keeravani
Despite the ennui-ridden kuthu rhythm, O lilli is a rocking affair; Baba Sehgal nails it with his enthusiastic vocals. With grand, bombastic orchestration and strong Jackson influence, Ruler is mighty impressive – both versions, particularly the CD version by Keeravani himself. Raajaa vasireddy blends a nice folk’ish tune with a more modern kuthu sound to great effect, while Vasthu bagunde does the same job with a templatized, but catchy filmy dance tune, with Rahul Sipligunj leading the charge. Rahul is very good in the pulsating title song too. Dhammu is veteran Keeravani’s solid challenge to current crop of Telugu composers.
