Aagadu (Music review), Telugu – Thaman
The title song is standard-issue hero intro material, with a generous sprinkling of bombastic English epithets and a repetitive rhythm. Junction lo and Narri narri are no different – Thaman’s stock rhythm, along with fangled, severely digitized singing by Shruti Hassan in the latter. Aaja saroja shuns precisely that kind of predictable rhythm, and depsite Rahul Nambiyaar’s voice being digitally enhanced, the unusually paced song makes a difference. Bhel poori too has a nice, expansive ring to it, given the kind of slowly sweeping kuthu rhythm it employs. The dialog-based Theme is an interesting variation! Largely humdrum material, this Aagadu.
