Adhyaksha (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya
Phonu illa is typical Arjun material – rhythm is bang-on and Vijay Prakash sounds like Arjun too! The title song, sung by Puneeth Rajkumar no less, is a catchy, kuthu affair – foot-tapping, beyond the simple flow. The composer gets Open harisu too right – the rhythm, to start with, is inventively addictive, and Vijay Prakash is in his elements too! Kannigu strays from the usual formula, but Archana Ravi sounds awkward with her vocals, till Tippu brings the song back into form, with its Ilayaraja’ish melody. Palak Muchhal’s Sum sumne sees Arjun dip into his Harris Jayaraj mode – simple, likeable tune, however. Arjun’s tunes are dependably good in Adhyaksha!
