Gundello Godari (Music review), Telugu – Ilayaraja

Posted by Karthik

The title song, with its synthetic outlook and staid chorus, sounds jaded. Jillumandi fares significantly better – the tune is vintage Raja seduction, but for the modern trappings. Vechaani vayasu, the Telugu remix of Machaana paatheengala, from Raja’s Tamil debut, Annakkili, and Raathiri, Tami-remix (!) of Johnny’s Aasaiya kaathula sound scintillating even today! Nanu neetho‘s tune is, again, Raja gold, but the orchestration almost kills the song. In Ekkadundhi naa kodi, along with Mano, Raja recreates his mid-80s playfullness with nostalgic goodness, while Aa eedhi kurrodu lives up to its catchy, folk theater sound pretty well. Joyful Raja rewind time!
