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 […]

Apache Indian may be singing Run Run, but Devi’s tune is no different from the one he usually reserves for say, Baba Sehgal – passably catchy. The DSP mix version is no better. Mano aces the carnatic-spoof in Shankarabharanamtho, even as the tune traverses multiple genres in the interludes. For something called Violin Song, the […]

Mirchi (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad

Chinna Ponnu’s Mirchi is high on the typically-Devi folk mix. Mika’s Yahoon yahoon is functionally catchy, while Devi’s effort in Kailash Kher’s Pandagala shows in the interestingly mounted rhythms. Barbie girl is lively – striking Middle Eastern and Latino base, and wonderfully sung by Suchitra and Jaspreet Jasz! Darlingey is the only track that seems […]

Onnam class and Bad boy are extremely standard DSP templates – high-on-energy, foot-tapping rhythms, tunes that merely limp along the dominating sound and a repetitive hook. Thaka thayya‘s combination of thavil/urumi melam sound and heart-warming lyrics harping on relationships is a surprisingly effective listen! Nalu pakkam has DSP shouting to his heart’s content, but in […]

Damarukam (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad

Omkaram srusthi, Pancha graha kootam and Dheemtana are background’ish and functional. Shiva shiva shankara and Bhoonabhontaalake are more filmy, and largely templatized. Nesthama is more like good old Devi; catchy, hummable melody, while Sakku bhai is as mindless an item song can get. Kanyakumari‘s uptempo tune seems tailor-made for Baba Sehgal, but Devi gets Jaspreet […]

Hey chakkani bike undi and Pakado are good examples – nothing works in these songs. The title song fares marginally better, thanks to the catchy hook, while, Mee intiki mundhu works only for its accordion and horns usage. Jassie Gift’s Osey osey is horrendously y iterative at multiple levels. It takes Adnan Sami to salvage […]
