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 […]

Aakupachhani chandamaamalaa has a buoyant sound and tune that is instantly appealing. Karthik and Ramya handle it like the pros they are. Suvarna, on the other hand, seems terribly templatized and ennui-inducing. Ditto for the title song that flows with its melody barely causing any impact, though there are shades of M M Keeravani in […]

Thaman builds the title song gradually, but surely, accelerating things with lovely guitar’ish carnatic piece in the first interlude. The composer consistently layers Krishna Chaitanya’s voice akin to a chorus, and this adds a harmonious layer to the vocals. The tune is frothy and easy-on-the-ears. Anu anu is standard-issue Thaman propped by digitally enhanced vocals […]

L 7 (Music review), Telugu – Aravind-Shankar

Hot coffee kappu is classic, time-tested mambo presented really well by Arvind-Shankar! Harshitha Krishnan’s sultry vocals adds to that, while Shudeep Chandrasekar offers her good company. Yazin Nizar is incredibly earnest in the blues’y ballad-style So so baby, literally singing outside the window of the lady, complete with a dog barking in the background). The […]

Pranaamam works as a simple, resonant and catchy pop-bhajan, in Shankar Mahadevan’s punchy vocals with clear diction. Rock on bro‘s rock/pop anthem ambitions are obvious and given Raghu Dixit’s excellent singing and a thumping rhythm, it makes the cut. With esoteric rhymes like Apple beauty and Newton gravity, Apple beauty is trademark Devi material – […]
