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. […]

Despite the digital processing, Revanth is great form in the energetic and steadily rhythmic Adhilekka. O kshanam could easily pass off for a Mani Sharma melody! Yuvan’s tune is gorgeous and his punchy rhythm only makes it better, though Aishwarya and Deepak’s singing seems middling. M.L.R.Karthikeyan’s singing is top notch in Aakaasam, even as the […]

Girishh does something interesting in Kaarigai kanne – what is a whispery and gorgeous melody in Tamil and Telugu, it transforms into a mighty likeable Mohit Suri-style melody in the Hindi version, O mere sanam! The former variants include 2 singers, with the female singers (Shaktishree and Chinmayi) offering tantalizing spoken lyrics, while the Hindi […]

Mahanubhavudu (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Rendu kallu has an easy charm, with a captivating hook and Armaan Malik handles it impeccably. M.M.Manasi and Geetha Madhuri are effortlessly good in Thaman’s Mayamalavagowla-raaga title song, with a lovely solo violin by Shandilya. In Kiss Me Baby, Thaman brings his brand of punchy electronic sounds and with that likeable tune, it works perfectly. […]
