Sammohanam (Music review), Telugu – Vivek Sagar

Posted by Karthik

Oohalu Oorege Gaalanthaa is every bit of a Vivek Sagar song, and that’s something, given the young composer’s relatively limited repertoire. The gentle jazzy feel is something Vivek does so well. Plus, he has Haricharan’s spellbinding singing (along with Keerthana) to go with it. The other song featuring Haricharan is top notch as well – O Cheli Thaara, with a melody that is delightfully lush. Vivek adorns it with some interesting instrument choices in the interludes – in the first, he opts for what sounds like mandolin, along with violin, while in the second, he goes for a wond-instrument, after an extended violin phrase. Manasainadedo is almost Mickey J Meyer, with a dash of world music exotica in the prelude humming! Varun’s electric guitar and Vivek’s own work on the banjo adds considerable heft to the already wonderful melody. Vivek handles the singing too particularly well. The soundtrack’s only female point of view is Kanulalo Thadigaa. Chaitra Ambadipudi is stupendously good, and considering Vivek’s tune is at once memorable and affecting, the package works wonders. From Catharsis to Pelli Choopulu, Sheesh Mahal, Yuddham Sharanam, and now Sammohanam – it’s heartwarming to witness the steady, confident progress of a promising composer!
