Columbus, despite the mindlessly silly lyrics, keeps the catchy outlook intact all through, with Narendra and Chaitra leading the vocals perfectly. Mani Sharma’s sense of instrumentation—an exotic mix, moreso in the interludes—makes it particularly likeable. Sanasannagaa is that typical Mani Sharma melody that starts with a whispery opener and soars alongside electric guitar at places, […]

From Keba’s racy electric guitar, DSP moves to a corny cornucopia of Ganesh chanting and folk rhythm in DJ, a background’ish mish-mash. Gudilo badilo is heady masala mix! Incredibly catchy, fabulously sung by MLR Karthikeyan and Chitra, with clever touches by DSP, with interludes featuring Kalyan’s konnakol and Saroja’s dilruba. In Mechuko, Nakash Aziz tries […]

Jonitha Gandhi rocks Ela thelchaali, though the trio’s music is only pleasantly rock’ish, at best. Kaadhal kaadhal, with its energetic electronic sound and Clinton, Krishna Iyer and Farhad’s singing, hits all the right, bouncy notes. Nuvvante nenani‘s gentle, heavy-hearted melody gets a significant fillip from Vijay Yesudas and the trio’s breezy orchestration. Lokama brings back […]

The title song is familiar, no doubt, but has a joyous outlook that is thoroughly enjoyable! Ranjith and Gopika Poornima’s singing and the buoyant strings by Chennai Strings Orchestra add to the charm. Incredibly familiar rhythm in Nee vente nenunte, but Kapil’s vocals and the engaging tune win. Bhramaramba, with a repetitive, rhythmic sound gets […]

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 […]

Mani Sharma nails the bass and catchy tune of Paapi kondallo while his interludes offer a smattering of the Ilayaraja goodness. Meghale thele naalona has Vamsy’s finger-print in terms of the bizarre additions, though the main tune is a lovely listen too. Ravi Varma chitrama sounds just like Sagar Mahathi’s music – exotic musical layers […]

Radha (Music review), Telugu – Radhan

Kaakki chokka is a foot-stomper of a hero-intro, with an extra punch in the percussion, though on a standard-issue tune, relying more on sound. The spritely percussion continues in Choopultho guchchi, a bit too overbearing on the otherwise soft melody. Ranjith is dependably good with the singing. Oye mera Krishuuu is the 3rd song with […]

Venkatapuram (Music review), Telugu – Achu

Egire‘s background rhythm is delightfully unique and goes beautifully with the engaging melody sung by Yazin Nizar and Keka Ghoshal. Benny Dayal’s O Maya settles into a nice and catchy EDM groove, while Kokkoroko, together with the 5 singers, has a pretty good techno hook. Thanevaro‘s pensive melody is soulful and Achu handles it himself […]

The title song is yet-another generic high-pitched call for some cause. Chellakutti joraa, like Justin’s Ethithu veetu kaliflowere (Raja Mandhiri) has a gently playful and retro’ish touch, with a particularly imaginative nadhaswaram-thavil mix, but for a middling tune. Poi varavaa‘s maudlin medley drones on, but in Vaikom Vijayalakshmi’s voice, Vaasamulla poovaa makes for a haunting […]

A dash of 80s synth pop. Almost Harris Jayaresque bare essential sound. But Mickey layers them on a lovely melody in Edho edho bagunde, with fantastic long phrases sung beautifully by Rahul Nambiar. Kadile lokam mottham and Kanulake teliyani seem to be stuffed with Harris Jayaraj’ish gibberish! That they both have rhythmic, largely likeable sound […]
