Nayak (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S
Laila O Laila takes its Pancham roots very seriously and impresses with bombastic rhythms and swaying tune. Kathi lanti pilla sees Thaman work his slow and rhythmic template to wonderful effect; excellently sung by Shefali Alvares and himself. Thaman also dares to remix Raja’s iconic Chiranjeevi number Subhalekha rasukunna (Kondaveeti Donga); the remix works mainly because the source itself is brilliant. Oka choopukkae is Thaman’s self-recycle that barely works, but two ladies, Suchitra and Shreya Ghoshal superbly handle Nellorae and Hey Naayak respectively – both are adequately energetic to move Ram Charan’s and our feet. Solid masala soundtrack from Thaman!
