Ishtakamya (Music review), Kannada – Ajaneesh Loknath

Posted by Karthik

Ajaneesh’s over-enthusiastic singing is the only thing pulling down Nee nanagoskara (pretty pronounced in the solo version by Shreya); everything else about the song – Raja’esque melody, choicest orchestration, Shreya’s vocals… are splendid! Naa ninage‘s Charukesi layer is fantastic, with soulful singing by Chintan, though Mukhtiyar Ali’s other version is awkward. Shreya rocks Thangali‘s saccharine-sweet melody, even as Ajaneesh’s rhythm works wonders. Vijay Prakash’s flamboyant delivery lifts Payanadalli, with excellent support from the the background strings. Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar sings the mercifully short, and rather Hamsalekha’ish Chinthe yavudu horribly. His shift from Mano Murthy to Ajaneesh Loknath has worked well, overall.
