Tarak (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

Ba baro‘s energetic rhythm and Vyasa Raj’s enthusiastic singing keeps it in good stead, though the tune is standard-issue. In Sanje hothu, Arjun infuses Thyagaraja’s Swara raaga sudha in Sankarabharanam-raaga seamlessly to create a lovely melody handled fabulously by Indu Nagraj. Besides Armaan Malik and Shreya Ghoshal’s presence, Mathadu nee also has a very-Bollywood sound […]

The highly listenable Roopasi and the title song perfectly fit the Sonu-Mano Murthy-Mungaru Male template, while Kere yeri has a simple, equally charming sound. Roopasi’s Shreya version, Kannadi illada oorinali is a lovely listen as well, while Shreya rocks the wonderfully pleasant melody of Ninna snehadinda, with a gorgeous Hindustani base. Vijay Prakash’s spirited vocals […]

The title song is a heady, foot-tapping number, stringing together Rajkumar and Vishnuvardhan film titles! Vijay Prakash is expectedly fantastic. Arjun infuses manic energy in Dhool‘s rhythm, though the actual tune is more gimmicky. Tea angadi munde is typical Arjun Janya; an intentionally corny tune riding on a foot-tapping, faux-classical base… Vyasaraj does the honors […]

Janaganamana‘s easily catchy pop sound is significantly spruced up by Raghu Dixit’s endearing vocals. Rapper Chandan Shetty’s digitally processed version does a darn good job in Baramma baare‘s electro swing vibe, while Haricharan gets an easy winner in Mula mula, a wonderfully lush melody with a strong whiff of Charukesi raaga. Pi pi pi‘s highly […]

Chanda avalu starts, and retains, a lovely vaudevillian sound, even as it progresses to a beautiful high, with a phenomenal first interlude that seems to be modeled on raaga Keeravani (shades of Minsara Kanavu’s Vennilave vennilave?). Midhun is so good with the vocals! In Nennillade, Midhun hands over the reigns of the feathery melody to […]

Nangu beka makes apt use of Puneeth Rajkumar’s vocals in a simple, catchy tune. Ammi ammi is predictably outdated, though with a passable enough rhythm, though it is Vijay Prakash’s vocals that holds the song together. The song’s EDM mix is atrocious. Somebody say is a complete u-turn in tone! The song, sung by rapper […]

Raaga (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

South Indian film music’s current North Indian darling, Armaan Malik earns his standing singing Aalisu baa exceptionally well. His singing perfectly syncs with the song’s three layers, the other two being a slightly retro-reminiscent percussion and a brilliant layer of strings. Belakendare ups the ante significantly! In what seems like Hamsanadham raaga (Bantureethi kolu!), Arjun […]

Yaarivanu hilariously compares Puneeth Rajkumar to ‘loaded gun’ and ‘Kohinoor gem’ in a corny tune that seems completely incapable of any hero worship, its intended objective. Appu Dance is far worse, repeating the ‘Twinkle twinkle little star’ phrase amidst stunningly pointless music. Puneeth himself fares much better singing the Jackson-ode pop in Yaakingagidhe. The title […]

Gapu gapalli‘s light, frothy sound makes it a breezy listen. In Bettadmele Srinivasu, Midhun starts with faint strains of Sivaji’s Ballelakka and layers a punchy brass-based kuthu, led confidently by Sooraj Santhosh. Ringa ringa‘s cool reggae base is intriguingly paused in that tantalizing interlude, while Vijayprakash is absolutely brilliant in the faux-qawali Weldingu! Midhun closes […]

Raghu sings the breathless Adda bidde madesaa with a quirky twang amidst racy country music. Nakul Abhyankar lifts the already bouncy, exuberant Sa re ga ma to a new high. Baduke neenentha‘s innate appeal includes Charukesi raaga, Raghu’s deeply resonant orchestration and Kapil Nair’s fantastic singing. Preetiya hesare neenu is an intimate ballad that the […]
