Tholi Prema (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Raghu Dixit’s Break The Rules is an uptempo song with a neat ‘Mohana murali’ semi-classical interlude. Sunona Sunaina has a funky, likeable bounce and Rahul Nambiar’s singing makes it better. Thaman’s familiar backgrounds return in Allasani vaari, though Shreya’s vocals and Kamalakar’s flute make a significant difference. Kala Bhairava’s title song has a searing pathos […]

Agnyaathavaasi (Music review), Telugu – Anirudh

Dhaga dhaga maney, with its searing guitar backdrop (Prasanna, Rex Vijayan and Keba Jeremiah) and Anirudh’s vocal-cord busting singing is a pulsating listen! The classical guitar interludes and Anirudh’s work on the keyboard, in particular, significantly amps up the song. Baitikochi chuste is playful Anirudh at his best! The song is breezy and highly engaging, […]

2 Countries (Music review), Telugu – Gopi Sundar

Ullasamlo has an easy rhythm and a fairly engaging tune that doesn’t aim for anything more. Vareva Dollar Baby is Gopi trying his own Andhra-style kuthu – the sound is intact, but this is Gongura-in-coconut oil. Hey People trudges along with its generic Goan sound. Cheliya cheliya is trademark Gopi, literally, given he reuses his […]

MCA (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad

The title song is the kind that writes and composes itself with DSP around, and still manages to entertain. In Kothaga, DSP continues to use his signature technique – repeating a tune in an instrumental version immediately after it is sung. Fun song, this! Family Party uses a watered down version of Partner’s Soni de […]

Hello! (Music review), Telugu – Anup Rubens

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 […]

Nalla rangugala has the soul of a Bangla boat song, with its serene and understated orchestration. Shaan’s singing, stressing on the slow, deliberately lengthy phrases adds to the Bangla feel and sounds absolutely wonderful. Ye yadhalo too depends on a mighty sparse orchestration, and Hemachandra hands Shaan’s simple, soulful and rhythmic melody perfectly. The soundtrack’s […]

Malli Raava (Music review), Telugu – Shravan

Shravan builds the title song really well! He shifts the pitch to differentiate the male (sung by himself) and female (reprise, sung by Sunitha Upadrashta) versions, to accommodate the euphoric high-pitched phrase mid-way. Shravan’s vocal range isn’t entirely able to handle it, but the changed pitch helps Sunitha. The strings in the background, added layer […]

Okka chinukulo is every bit the lush Shaan melody that he often composes in Malayalam. The tune’s build-up is fantastic and the soft, harmonium-layered percussion harmonium is thoroughly enticing, as is Sachin Warrier—and in particular—Anne Amie vocals. Pranavi Acharya is equally good in Pacha pacha kalale, with Shaan’s tune working pretty well again, though it […]

Edhola‘s sprightly tune, led by Revanth, mixes effortlessly with the semi-classical piece by Ranjani Sivakumar. Oohale‘s sparse instrumentation lets Shaktisree’s captivating voice do the work with the melody. Bagundayya chandram, Chelliyo chellako and Gummadikaya halwa, despite their likeable tunes, meander in too many directions and appear less interesting. Nikitha Gandhi’s Malik tere is too commonplace […]

Balakrishnudu (Music review), Telugu – Mani Sharma

Entha varalaina is dated in every way; even Revanth sounds unusually bad! Thariraa thariraa‘s rather generic Latino tune is made tolerable thanks to Ramya Behara infectitious energy in the vocals. The song’s other version, by Rashi Khanna, pales in comparison. Ramya pulls off the same thing with the mighty generic Andhra kuthu Ardharathri sureedu effortlessly. […]
