Kannadakkagi Ondannu Otti (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

In Yella Halli Love Story, Vijay Prakash, the adept singer he already is, adds an affecting edge in his voice, while also playing around with falsettos and some fantastic free-form vocalizing in the interlude! Arjun’s music is an enjoyable mix of soul, searing electric guitars, a dollop of jazz and most interestingly, tabla! It all comes together so beautifully! The title song is typical Arjun Janya-Sharan material. Rhythmic, catchy, with brilliant singing by Vijay Prakash, yet again. The guitars here too speak volumes for Arjun’s imagination! Rasthe Pakka Boddi Haida changes the soundtrack’s tone effortlessly, with its breezy rock flavor. Sanjith Hegde is particularly very good with his humming in the interlude and the anupallavi to charanam bridge! For the other song featuring Sanjith, Neene Geechida Saalina, Arjun produces an even more impressive sound – the booming chorus is astounding as the song ends. Even though Nana Mele Nanageega has strong traces of Rahman’s Rhythm number Kaatre En Vaasal, the melody comes into its own with Sonu Nigam’s scintillating vocals and the serenely sound Arjun conjures. The song’s Shreya Ghoshal version, Ommomme Nannannu, is equally delightful. Like last year, Kannadakkagi Ondannu Otti is a stupendously good soundtrack by Arjun!
