Jyo Achyutananda (Music review), Telugu – Sri Kalyanaramana
Aakupachhani chandamaamalaa has a buoyant sound and tune that is instantly appealing. Karthik and Ramya handle it like the pros they are. Suvarna, on the other hand, seems terribly templatized and ennui-inducing. Ditto for the title song that flows with its melody barely causing any impact, though there are shades of M M Keeravani in the interludes. Shankar Mahadevan aces the semi-classical, possibly-Kalyani based Oka lalana. Harini Rao’s other, modern, pop version of Oka lalana is equally captivating. Kalyani Malik to Kalyan Koduri to Kalyani Koduri and now Sri Kalyanaramana – but his music remains consistently pleasant and engaging.
