Fida (Music review), Telugu – Shakthikanth Karthick

Posted by Karthik

Much of Vachinde‘s buoyancy is from Madhu Priya’s fantastic singing. Shakthikanth’s folksy backgrounds include lovely dollops of sitar and harmonium. Edo jaruguthondi is equally spirited, with its easy-on-the-ears dance-pop sound, and involved singing by Renuka and Aravind Srinivas. There’s a generous dose of A R Rahman in Hey pillagaada, and Shakthikanth’s melody, on a jaunty folk rhythm, is excellent. Hemachandra does well in Oosupodu, with a pensive, engaging melody, though the title song is largely standard-issue. In Hey Mister, riding on Martin’s sax and Godfrey Emmanuel’s guitar, Deepak delivers a cool, catchy song. Shakthikanth delivers mighty well for Sekhar Kammula!

PS: As Karthikeya Sharma mentions in the comments, Hey Pillagada seems to be a creatively rehashed version of Malliswari’s Parugulu theeyali, composed by S. Rajeswara Rao.

    ‘Hey Pillagada’ is largely inspired (if not, recreated) from ‘Parugulu teeyali’ song (Mallishwari, 1951). Legendary S. Rajeshwara rao was the composer.
