Saheba (Music review), Kannada – V.Harikrishna and Shankar Ganesh
Armaan Mallik leads Heegethake confidently, a generic, pleasant faux-sufi melody. The title song treads similar ground – painfully templatized, evoking a classic Laxmikant-Pyarerlal melody. Kolike ranga is Tipu’s show! He holds the calypso-from-Mandya package with his enthusiastic vocals. Ravichandran’s 1985 Naanu Nanna Hendthi number, Yaare neenu gets a remix, featuring Ranjith – lacks the kitschy spunk of the original by Shankar Ganesh, though. The soundtrack’s best is Thera haadu, a wonderfully folk’ish melody that Karthik completely aces! Harikrishna keeps the backgrounds simple, to let the tune work effortlessly. Surprisingly understated and short soundtrack for the introduction of a star son!
