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. […]

Ungarala Rambabu (Music review), Telugu – Ghibran

Mughlai biryani is Ghibran trying everything, including throwing in video game sounds into the mix. Hoo laa laa is passable, with lively singing by Dhanunjay and Yazin Nizar and a catchy hook, while Hitenshan teega‘s energetic pop sound segues beautifully into the core melody. The soundtrack’s two best songs feature Chinmayi – in Nuvve naa […]

Divya Kumar earnestly renders Raavana, an adequately pounding hero-intro song with nothing more. Jaspreet Jasz and Ranina Reddy’s vocals and DSP playing the electric guitar in Tring tring infuse some life into the otherwise severely templatized package that has the composer’s signature written all over it. Hemachandra is the sole savior of Nee kallalona that […]

Spyder (Music review), Telugu – Harris Jayaraj

Despite all the kitchen-sink level cliches in Boom boom, the sound remains alluring, thanks to the fantastic brass he incorporates along with Nikhita Gandhi’s vocals. Ciciliya ciciliya too is a fairly good listen, with a lively melody, accentuated with Harris’ pet sounds, including gibberish chorus from exotic islands. Haricharan is dependably good handling the vocals, […]

Yelugula teraley has the lilt and serene sound of the North East, with natural sounds thrown in to amplify the melody. Shaktisree Gopalan is in stupendous form, with Pramod Umapathi’s flute giving her superb company. Neevalaney is Karthik’s show, in a melody that seems tailor-made for him. Vivek’s Catharsis band-mates, Phani Teja’s carnatic synth (a […]
