Srimanthudu (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad
Sooraj Santhosh sings his heart out in Rama rama, packaged in Devi’s usual bombastic, catchy rhythms, ably supported by Ranina Reddy. Sagar and Simha, in contrast, don’t seem as effective in propping Jatha kalise or Dhimmathirigae‘s already tiresome tunes. But Devi dials up the bombast for Jaago, with his current Baba Sehgal-replacement, Raghu Dixit. It works easily, due to Raghu’s effortless delivery and some nifty backgrounds. Charuseela too works, for its simple, foot-tapping sound and Yazin Nizar’s compelling singing, while Srimanthuda is perfect as a montage background music. Srimanthudu is just more of what Devi usually — always — produces.
