Zindagi na milegi dobara is the usual Thaman bag of tricks – glitzy music that evokes a generous dose of ennui. Divya Kumar shines in the foot-tapping, energetic Black & White. In Basthi dorasani, Thaman hat-tips Pritam’s R Rajkumar number Gandi baat in a more-than-obvious way, in a similar kuthu package. Bole Ram works on […]

Much of Vachinde‘s buoyancy is from Madhu Priya’s fantastic singing. Shakthikanth’s folksy backgrounds include lovely dollops of sitar and harmonium. Edo jaruguthondi is equally spirited, with its easy-on-the-ears dance-pop sound, and involved singing by Renuka and Aravind Srinivas. There’s a generous dose of A R Rahman in Hey pillagaada, and Shakthikanth’s melody, on a jaunty […]

Nallani kanulalo and Ye piduguki both start with whistling but they turn into dramatically different songs. The former moves on to a neat Russian-folk like prelude, to eventually a lilting Keeravani’ish base with Ashwathi’s child-like voice expressing her Princess wishes. The latter has Arunraja Kamaraj… enough said – another vocal-cord busting Kabali derivative. Vishal offers […]

Ela ela flows like any other Thaman song – that slow and steady rhythm is an effortless head-shaker, and carries the simple tune along with it. Thaman brings back his Eeram-style ambient sound—with a generous dose of Harris Jayaraj’esque melody—in Ninne nenu premisthunna, aided superbly by M.M.Manasi’s vocals. Ka ka ka kaakulu is, at best, […]

Laayire could fit in any 90s Chiranjeevi potboiler seamlessly, with its heady faux-Punjabi mix. Bheems’ second song, Ey papa could be easily mistaken for Mani Sharma’s, with its whispery vocals and exotic sounds. But his last, Time ledu, beyond the catchiness, is pedestrian. Bharath Madhusudhanan’s Pedaviki nuvvante has a quaint, put-on retro sound, but the […]

There’s that oft-repeated Mickey J Meyer sound in Ye vaipu choostunna‘s flow! Sai Charan is fantastic with his singing and that Tamil ‘Paarukkulle nalla naadu’ phrase is a big surprise, along with the lovely celtic-style ending! Kaalam nippulaa has shades of Mickey too, particularly the world music’ish sounds, and Shravan sings this one darn well, […]

Unnatundi gundey‘s melody is affecting and easily likeable, with the anupallavi and charanam’s tunes distantly reminiscent of Ilayaraja’s melodies. Karthik and Chinmayi are—as always—fantastic! Sid Sriram does his magic yet again in Adiga adiga! Gopi hands him a somber melody with minimal orchestration that allows Sid’s impressive vocals to hold fort. Once Upon A Time […]

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 […]
