Khaidi No 150 (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad
Ammadu Let’s Do Kummudu has a lazy rhythm and a joke of a tune that seems only to exist to fit the hook. Ratthalu is equally bad, loading absurd rhyming words on a stock Devi package. Sundari is standard-issue DSP material where he is keen on using the sitar. You & Me offers minor respite, thanks to Hariharan and Shreya’s singing, though the tune devolves into a droning sound eventually. Neeru neeru is the mandatory ‘serious’ song; Shankar Mahadevan and the charukesi raaga base help. It’s baffling why Anirudh’s original, significantly cooler and largely nifty score for Kaththi wasn’t reused.
