Adi Shankaracharya’s Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam gets a snazzy power-version in Sunny’s capable imagination. Roland Fernandes’s electric guitar adds a racy layer to the fabulous 6-singers chorus. Mikey McCleary’s recreation—while sounding immensely like Mikey’s—doesn’t quite gel with the intonation-style verses and tune. Shalmali sashays in stylishly in Telusa that’s Sunny’s trademark, with captivating sounds and a […]

Sunny composes and sings the title song confidently, a catchy Bepop jazz’ish tune. In Ningi needera, the retro-styled scratchy sound moves to something modern with a neat sitar hook, while in Mila mila, which Shashwat Singh delivers with gusto, it’s the mandolin hook and addictive chorus. Chalti ka naam gaadi stylishly doffs a hat to […]

Tanu Nenu (Music review), Telugu – Sunny M.R.

Suryudne chusoddhama has that languorous sound that Sunny pioneered, and along with the captivating guitar strumming it sounds so good, in Arijit, Sunny and Harshika’s cool vocals! Aditya and Harshika carry Pade pade‘s racy mandolin and violin-loaded sound wonderfully, while the title song offers more of the catchy bluegrass’y goodness of Sunny. Arijit’s evocative voice […]

Dohchay (Music review), Telugu – Sunny M.R.

Nacchite ye panaina has a curiously intriguing disco-techno mix that’s easy on the ears. Okkariki okkaram and Aanati devadasu have simple, catchy hooks and the addictive musical phrases, besides Shalmali’s fantastic vocals. Raanaa goes overboard in a clumsy soundscape and the title song is an odd mess. Arijit salvages Hayi hayi‘s tune, but the backgrounds […]

Ra ra rowdy‘s sound is mighty interesting – the catchy hook enveloped by pulsating guitar, with Arijit and Aditi’s towering vocals! Yedo has perfect rock singalong’ness – breezy melody, and winsome vocals by Armaan Malik and Harshika Gudi. That nuanced rock sound extends to Aa seetadevi too, with Arijit’s expert handling of the mellow tune. […]

Uyyalaina jampalaina‘s sparkling tune works beautifully in Harshika Gudi’s voice, ably supported by Anudeep Dev; the persistent and soft guitar backdrop leands itself to accentuate the tune really well. Lapak lapak ayipothundhi, despite its reasonably standard reggae’ish sound, sounds good thanks to the vocals. Mana bandham and it’s Hindi version, Dher tak chala, offer an […]

Krishnudi varasulantha is eclectic in its choice of music! It seems vaudevillian, but is bloody nuanced in the way it has been assembled – Arijit Singh pulls off a superb show with his faultless vocals! Adi enti okkasari too makes stupendous use of Arijit Singh’s whispery vocals amidst soft, wonderfully dreamy music mixing primarily guitar […]
