Dictator (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Divya Kumar holds the racy, techno Ganesh bhajan, Gam gam together mighty well, but its Thaman’s energetic orchestration that really is the star. What’s Up Baby and Tinga tinga are incredibly templatized in every conceivable way, as if the tunes composed themselves, in self-extrapolation mode. Chura chura‘s ambient sound and gentle tune gets significantly better in Sanjana’s vocals. The title song is mind-numbingly banal and also massively self-aggrandizing. Gana gana is the mandatory Andhra folk number, but even Thaman’s enthusiastic techno additions don’t help the song. A by the numbers soundtrack for the man who gets by the numbers films.
