Subramanyam For Sale (Music review), Telugu – Mickey J Meyer
The title song gains from Rahul Nambiar’s full-throated singing and Mickey’s punchy 80s-style pop sound, with a particularly catchy horns layer. Starting with faux-East Asian sounds, I’m in love builds on to become a fairly standard, but foot-tapping masala duet. Aakasam is rather un-Mickey, using a stock Andhra folk rhythm, but he gets the repetitive hook right. Mickey’s remake of Raj-Koti’s evergreen Khaidi No.786 number, Guvva Gorinka, tampers mildly with the original and remains captivating as ever. Shankar Mahadevan’s Telugante ends the soundtrack on a generic note. Mickey is decidedly out of his comfort zone here and it mostly works.
