Vajrakaya (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

No problem‘s harmonica sounds scream ‘Harris Jayaraj’, but the highlight is Dhanush’s cool vocals that no doubt include the phrase ‘Kolaveri di’. The title song is as bombastic as a Telugu hero intro song – devotional-kuthu. Thukathu gada bada too would be hot property in Tollywood – the Sharan, Sunitha sung song is rhythmic and […]

Rajesh Krishnan breathes life into the lovely tune of Hannagabeku kaayi; Arjun’s orchestration too is clean and perfect, besides the use of chorus! In Hege nee bandhe, Arjun gets Rajesh again, along with Sydaali, and produces a very Harris Jayaraj’ish tune, complete with gibberish interludes and similar ambient arrangements! Rajesh’s third song, Rajakumari, despite the […]

Phonu illa is typical Arjun material – rhythm is bang-on and Vijay Prakash sounds like Arjun too! The title song, sung by Puneeth Rajkumar no less, is a catchy, kuthu affair – foot-tapping, beyond the simple flow. The composer gets Open harisu too right – the rhythm, to start with, is inventively addictive, and Vijay […]

Sumke sumke has a predictable tune, but Arjun packages it well, while Bitbutu is every a bit of Arjun template that is so recognisable – Vijay Prakash can deliver such songs in his sleep… catchy in a frivolous way! Band baja wears its hero-intro badge quite obviously and sounds utterly pointless. Mari byadave is Karthik’s […]

Vijay Prakash rules over Maamu maamu and Huchcha na (along with Arjun), with simple, catchy hooks in both. Jeena jeena sounds like a pale Devi Sri Prasad Telugu song. Pantara panta too sounds more like a raucous Telugu song, while Arjun is his usual enthu self in Malla malla. Shankar Mahadevan gets two mellow tracks […]

Darling (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

Dabba song is energetic and consistently rhythmic; that it is well sung by Kailash Kher and Shamitha Malnad only adds to the appeal! Mika’s title song, in comparison, is relatively weak with its predictable commercial template. Karthik and Archana Ravi seem perfect for the dulcet Kaichachu – Arjun’s tune sticks immediately and is orchestrated beautifully […]

Bajarangi (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

Including that vehicle horn interlude and lyrics made of Shivrajkumar film titles, Bossu nam bossu is massy and catchy, in Arjun’s usual funky vocals! But Jai bajarangi and Re re bajarangi, despite valiant effort from Shankar Mahadevan and Kailash Kher, respectively, sound at best like background music. Thankfully, Karthik and Anuradha Bhat make ample amends […]

Angaraka (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

Arjun’s Rahman roots are pretty evident in Kannu kannalli, with ambient sounds picked from dozen older Rahman songs, into a neat package, sung by Deepak and Anuradha Bhat. The composer is in his elements singing the catchy Priyamani, in his trademark faux-nasal style. Aala alare and Jigi jigiyo manave barely make an impact with highly […]

Ba bare cheluve is trademark (by now) Arjun – instantly catchy and making best use of his gruff, otherwise-unappealing voice, while Supriya Lohith gives him fantastic company! Bell bottom too carries the same foot-tapping outlook and makes for a good listen! Nalli katte has Arjun playing with a folk’ish tune and he adds his own […]

Arjun assembles the most absorbing sounds in Preethi maado that works even for the simple masala tune. The composer rocks Node node, composing and singing the lilting faux-Hindustani tune with elan. But the composer’s voice hardly suits the Ganesh-puraana in Autoraja, even though he nails the tune rather well. Shame shame and Sachinu batting ge […]
