Oohalu Oorege Gaalanthaa is every bit of a Vivek Sagar song, and that’s something, given the young composer’s relatively limited repertoire. The gentle jazzy feel is something Vivek does so well. Plus, he has Haricharan’s spellbinding singing (along with Keerthana) to go with it. The other song featuring Haricharan is top notch as well – […]

Seema Weightu extends Veera Thurandhara, with a similar Ilayarajaesque swag, but adding some Mumbaiya mix too, along with Dopeadelicz and Arunraja Kamaraj’s rap. Katravai Patravai is the soul-twin of Neruppu Da, Keba’s electric guitar replacing Jhanu Chantar’s. Instead of Neruppa Da’s searing appeal, when Yogi B roars, “Unnayum maNNayum vendru vaa Thee (Thee)raatha or thevaiyai […]

Oh Priya‘s minimal pallavi is interesting, consisting of ‘Oh Priya Na Priya’ and ‘Mehbooba’; the rest of the song too has a slow, somber appeal. Naa pranam‘s sweeping melody is Varijashree’s show; she’s fantastic with her involved vocals. Ambika Jois beautifully handles the catchy Saiyaan, with fantastic guitar work in the anupallavi and smoothly blends […]

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 […]
