Sooraj Santhosh sings his heart out in Rama rama, packaged in Devi’s usual bombastic, catchy rhythms, ably supported by Ranina Reddy. Sagar and Simha, in contrast, don’t seem as effective in propping Jatha kalise or Dhimmathirigae‘s already tiresome tunes. But Devi dials up the bombast for Jaago, with his current Baba Sehgal-replacement, Raghu Dixit. It […]

A hook + guitar phrase is all you get in One & Two & Three – very Devi’ish old hat. Seethakaalam and Jaaruko too are standard-issue Devi tunes that drone on. Super machi‘s Tamil prelude morphs into techno-style Andhra folk with long, engaging phrases. Come to the party works thanks to Vijay Prakash’s ebullience and […]

The title song is every bit what one would expect in a hero-worshipping jingoistic title song, almost sounding like a hymn! Vijay Yesudas and Chitra‚Äôs vocals make a big difference to the otherwise predictable melody of Nee kanji choopullo, while MM Mansi goes through the motions to deliver the Hamsadhwani in Om sarvanv. The two […]

Bramman (Music review), Tamil – Devi Sri Prasad

Vodu vodu, barring Chinnaponnu’s hyper enthusiastic vocals, is stock Devi-style bombastic stuff. But the composer knows what works and how, as is evident in Penne nee illamal, with the right placement of hooks and apt use of his well-known sense of rhythm. The latter is accentuated in Vaanathila nilavu and Vaada vaada nanba, where the […]

Of Sajid Wajid’s three songs, Baaki sab and Photocopy are unbearably banal, but Tere naina, that sounds like the love child of Bullet Raja’s Saamne hai and Dabangg’s Tere mast mast, is a neat listen! Amal Malik’s Tumko to aana hi tha is sappy and cheesy; the House mix (Love you till the end), even […]

Devi Telugufies an otherwise predictable Latino template in Aww tuzo morgh korta; kudos to Neha Bhasin for infusing life into it too! O Sayonara is an interesting idea, mixing what sounds like rock, with a folk phrase, while Sooraj Santhosh does really well in the vocals. You are my love‘s staid boy-band pop tune is […]

Veeram (Music review), Tamil – Devi Sri Prasad

Nallavannu solvaanga is every bit a templatized, predictable Devi-style hero-intro (plus his 4 brothers, no less) song – passable fun. Ival dhaana has a catchy, addictive lilt that works beautifully for the melody, while Thangame tilts more towards a staid old Devi format that refuses to make any impact. Jing chakaan is no different – […]

Bhai (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad

The title song‘s rhythmic backdrop is neat, but the overdose of ‘u’ after almost every word is very annoying-u. Ditto with Most Wanted-u tu… sorry, too! Nemmadiga is a throwback to the old-style sound – rides on Swetha Mohan’s vocals and foot-tapping rhythm. O pilla pilla is trademark Devi Sri Prasad – stock everything, from […]

Aaradugula bullet(u) goes through the motion in typical Telugu hero intro-style, but Devi manages to infuse a stylish sound. Ninnu chudugane is Devi’s show – oh-so-cool tune and his drawl’y vocals are fantastic! Shankar Mahadevan seems perfect for the faux retro-style Bapu garu bomma – catchy tune, orchestrated well. The short Deva devam, with its […]

If Freedom’s predictable rhythmic mash-up is catchy, Cheliya makes fantastic use of KK’s vocals for a rousing tune! Ayyo paapam and Pimple dimple, despite the cringe-worthy set-up, are at least foot-tapping with neat hooks! Oye oye has David Simon and Andrea ruling the stylishly orchestrated tune, while Nee jathaga is the soundtrack’s pick – superb […]
