Rudramadevi (Music review), Telugu – Ilayaraja
Mathagajame has the grandeur befitting a historical’s intro song, but eventually turns into a melange. Chusukovoy‘s rhythm and tune is perfect for… 1985. Now, it sounds bizarre. Ditto with Allakallolamai – angsty, outdated dance sound. The soundtrack’s real winners are the 3 melodies. Auna neevena is delightfully sweet, with fantastic orchestration that is so very Raja, while Punnami puvai ups the ante with an even more dulcet tune and fantastic singing by Shreya! Anthapuramlo too has a pleasant lilt and the harmonious mix of Chitra, Sadhana Sargam and Chinmayi’s vocals makes a big difference. Usual Raja stock, with 3 highlights.
