Jackie (Music review), Kannada – V Harikrishna

With echoes of Queen’s We Will Rock You, Shiva anta hogutidde is instantly catchy, with tune twists that work wonderfully well! Eradu jadeyannu has enchanting orchestration and using Sonu-Shreya combo is a master-stroke for this melody, while Kailash Kher’s Ekka raja builds on the folk template in an appealing way! Edavatt aiatu has Puneet’s vocals, in a zingy masala tune marked by neat rhythms, while the title song pumps it up impressively, particularly that Jackie Jackie chorus! Jackie is one of the catchiest Kannada soundtracks I have heard in a long time – the music is not nuanced, but spellbindingly massy!
