Basanti (Music review), Telugu – Mani Sharma
Srikrishna, Karunya, Hemachandra and Sahithi are in fantastic form in the lively Thirugubaatidhi that builds its momentum slowly but steadily. Paaripothunna is a throwback to the older style of melody – well handled by Pawan’s soft vocals. Pratheekshanam, in comparison, is the more modern ambient melody that Mani is known for – he infuses a pleasant Hindustani style rhythm too and delivers a knockout! The Spirit of Basanti is a lovely listen too, while Deepu’s vocals demonstrate rough edges for an otherwise gorgeously orchestrated song in Vellakura. After a long time, Mani Sharma is in very good form, in Basanti!
