Brahmotsavam (Music review), Telugu – Mickey J Meyer
Vacchindi kada avakasam no doubt has the strong AVICII flavor, but the Telugu-EDM song is great, catchy fun, led wonderfully by Abhay Jodhpurkar. The title song too carries the electronic sound, coupled with a neat title hook, this time headlined by Sreeramachandra. Mickey seems intent on covering electronic genre in Bala tripuramani and Put your hands up as well – while the latter is decent bubblegum-pop with obviously catchy dance hooks that are at times cringe-worthy, the former rocks, in Rahul Nambiar’s vocals and foot-tapping sound; Mickey layers this one with his inventive world-music’ish interludes too, for added effect. Mickey’s modern, pop-take on Madhurashtakam, in Madhuram madhuram, is fantastic. He gets Padma and Sridevi to sing it with the requisite piety, but in an ambient new package. His trademark sound is apparent in Aata paatalaadu, with Karthik handling the solo in his inimitable style, while the extended, repetitive hooks are the highlight of the song, besides fantastic chorus parts. Anjana Soumya and Ramya Behara hold together the reggae-style start and eventual faux-folk move in Naidorintikada really well. The prominent electronic sound including, Mickey delivers a crowd-pleasing and massy commercial soundtrack in Brahmotsavam, his 4th successful association with director Srikanth Addala!
