Next enti is DSP trademark – punchy rhythm and repetitively corny fillers. Arere yekkade is a lovely surprise from DSP! Delightful melody set to an engaging rhythm with beautiful snatches of violin and flute, sung fabulously by Naresh Iyer and Manisha Eerabhathini! Disturb chestha ninnu too is a pleasant surprise! Superbly funky bass and a […]

Ekimeeda‘s uncluttered and simple tune is easily likeable, particularly in Shreya and Udit’s vocals. Gana gana gana is perfunctory group song that is best left on screen with visuals, while Mrignayanaa featuring S.P.Balasubrahmanyam, despite the great start, gets into sitar-driven period-classical template. In Saaho saarvabowma saaho, Vijayprakash and  Keerthi Sagathiya scream their lungs out ambitiously, […]

Ammadu Let’s Do Kummudu has a lazy rhythm and a joke of a tune that seems only to exist to fit the hook. Ratthalu is equally bad, loading absurd rhyming words on a stock Devi package. Sundari is standard-issue DSP material where he is keen on using the sitar. You & Me offers minor respite, […]

Mellaga tellarindoi is so typically Mickey! The build-up is lovely, the chorus even more so! Anurag Kulkarni leads the vocals very well. The title song gains tremendously from Chitra and Vijay Yesudas’s singing; the tune is predictably Mickey, but the resonant sound is fantastic. Naalo nenu suffers from its monotonous rhythm though Sameera Bharadwaj’s singing […]

Dhruva (Music review), Telugu – Hiphop Tamizha

The title song is aptly booming, with Amit Mishra’s full-throated singing and the punchy rock sound. Padmalatha, who sang the best song from Thani Oruvan (Kannala kannala), gets the song’s Telugu-equivalent too – Choosa choosa; it is both less melodic and less interesting, in comparison. Pareshanura offers Padmalatha another chance and this time, backed by […]

That OP Nayyar’ish charm in Piyush Mishra-composed Hota hai carries it beyond his oddly craggy vocals. In Bhola sa too, Piyush sounds equally awkward, but Rahul Ram obviously handles Piyush’s lyrics and Vivek’s desi-reggae style tune better in Bhatki raaton ko. In Aagi aagi, Bakaji Dake’s overall enthusiasm overcomes his quivery singing of the folk’ish […]

ISM (Music review), Telugu – Anup Rubens

Anup makes a punchy use of Western (popularly known as cowboy music!) music in Kanulu navainaa, while also inserting classic Indian elements like that violin! Jubin Nautiyal and Mohana Bhagaraju are perfectly adept with the singing. Yey yey mixes Telugu folk with more elements to excellent, foot-tapping effect, topped by the catchy hook, while Podaade […]

Hyper (Music review), Telugu – Ghibran

Anudeep and Yazin try their best singing the utterly predictable Come back, while Ghibran has a nice surprise in the anupallavi’s tune! Baby doll too has lot of catchy sounds, but the tune is pedestrian. Ompula dhaniya is the pits – with a groan-inducing bum chiki bum chorus. But Ghibran does throw a surprise in […]

Agarotulla (Pathivaayi Njan) and Prema pusene (Kaalam Kettu Poyi) gain from better voices (compared to Shabareesh Varma) of Naresh Iyer and Karthik, respectively – the tunes remain pleasant and nice. Ninna leni (Chinna chinna), in Karthik’s accomplished voice, acquires an extra polish. Rajesh’s pièce de résistance continues to be Malare… here, Evare – absolutely gorgeous! […]

Majnu (Music review), Telugu – Gopi Sundar

The second Suchit Suresan finishes the first 2 lines in Kallumoosi, Gopi adds a very short burst of violins, and that is precisely the Gopi trademark! The melody is spritely and instantly likeable and Suchit’s rendition makes it all the more better. The possible Charukesi strain in Oorikey ala is tantalizingly beautiful, even as Gopi […]
