Savaari 2 (Music review), Kannada – Manikanth Kadri
The ultra-minimal orchestration in Ninna danigaagi is absolutely tantalizing! Karthik and Hamsika Iyer, and Santhosh Venky and Supriya Lohith – both sets of singers are fantastic in crooning two versions of this possibly Abheri’ish melody. In contrast, Puneeth Rajkumar’s Pipi song is standard, noisy and raucuous kuthu template. Ash King’s Yello mareyaagi is a breezy, sing-along’ish language-agnostic melody. Simple aagide’s catchy Latino sound works easily, thanks also to Raman Mahadevan and Shalmali Kholgade’s singing. The theme is a nice, likeable short, while the wistful sound of Yaava mohana mural is minimally engaging. Manikanth Kadri continues his good spell in Kannada.
