Seethamma Andalu Ramayya Sitralu (Music review), Telugu – Gopi Sundar

Posted by Karthik

Seethamalakshmi has the perfect tempo for the easily likeable tune from Gopi, with his trademark violins. Yazin Nizar’s singing is effortless, particularly in the higher pitches, even adding a nice twang to the end of Seethamalaksh’mey’! Tarajuvvaki is energetic and pulsating, with the necessary amount of Hindi as prescribed in Telugu film songs and a mandatory mention of Facebook! Suchith Suresan leads the song mighty well. Ditto for the equally energetic Manishi, with its simple, hummable tune, racy sound and the uncredited lady voice in the interludes. Ranjith is an old master at tunes like this and he’s so, so good! Haricharan gets the wonderfully soulful, melancholic Nuvvena and as expected, he aces it! There are shades of Vennilave (Minsara Kanavu) – perhaps the raaga! The soundtrack’s best are Okko nakshatram and Paravasame! The former is a instantly-brings-a-smile melody that is light, frothy and sung beautifully by Karthik and Divya Menon. Gopi, very cleverly, inserts parts of his own anupallavi from Two Countries’ Chengethin, in Okko’s anupallavi and fits so very well! Paravasame has the ambient, world music’ish sound that Gopi handles well, and on top of the pleasant tune, it works seamlessly. Short, snappy and sweet soundtrack from Gopi!

Keywords: Gopi Sundar, Gopi Sunder, Seethamma Andalu Ramayya Sitralu, 200, #200

PS 1: The album is not ‘short’ in the conventional sense – it still has 6 songs, but, interestingly, average song length is under 4 minutes!

PS 2: Gopi now just needs an A-lister’s film to leapfrog to the next level in Telugu, given his astounding form there.

PS 3: As Anfaal Ali points out in the comments below, Paravasame is indeed a recycle from Gopi’s own song, ‘Etho sayahna‘, from the Malayalam film, ’10:30am Local Call’. I loved it back when it released in 2013, and it’s no wonder it sounded so familiar.

Listen to the songs:

    I felt even chengenthin’s tune is more like Motta Modhatisari from Bale Bale Magadivoy….

      Indeed. All 3 songs are interlinked, and quite cleverly, at that 🙂

  • Say Something

    Okko started like “Poove Pooviname” (Sean Roldan/144). Thankfully it changed after few seconds.

  • The blog is very interesting… thanks for sharing with us.. keep it up!!!
