Hello! (Music review), Telugu – Anup Rubens

Posted by Karthik

The title song has coolth overflowing but is still a middling listen. Sri Dhruthi’s innocent voice keeps Anaganaga oka uru consistently engaging, though Shreya, in her version, completely lifts the song to a different level. Anup hits the jackpot in Thalachi thalachi, with its Raja’esque serene, guitar-layered melody, beautifully accentuated by Haricharan. In Yevevo, Akhil sounds earnest, though not that interesting, even as the pleasant tune keeps the song afloat. Merise merise tries to muster as much enthusiasm as it can, but ends up sounding like a Devi Sri Prasad wedding song during peak demonetization. This Hello is a call-drop.

    I know you don’t care about viewers comments but this review is not acceptable; all tracks are Kick-Ass and I immediately thought this would definitely be #200 in MB but you said it is a “call-drop”!! Listen to it once again if you are not satisfied.

      I do care about most comments here, if you notice 🙂 About this soundtrack… well, what can I say? I found it underwhelming. You liked it – good for you. What you thought should be the one that matters to you. And if my take on the album is unacceptable, you should do what any normal person would do – ignore my perspective and continue enjoying the music 🙂

    Out of curiosity, has watching the visuals of the songs ever changed your opinion of the song? Wasn’t a fan of merise when first listened to it, but having watched the film, it is now stuck on repeat. Would also love the violin BGM at the end

      I do not recall it changing my view so far, but it sure has increased my interest while listening to it. I recall The Train’s Woh Ajnabi being one of those, for some reason, though, in hindsight, I find the song’s video and Emraan’s dance mighty boring and plain now 🙂
