Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shaale, Kasaragodu (Music review), Kannada – Vasuki Vaibhav

Vasuki Vaibhav composes and sings Arere Avala Naguva, a lively rock number with noticeably good guitar work by Karthik Chennoji Rao and sax by Nathan. The tune is thoroughly engaging and so is the backing choir (Rohith Bhat, Narayan Sharma, Shwetha Devanahalli and Esha Suchi). Vasuki is equally good in the hilarious Dadda Song, with a brilliantly imaginative put-on nasal twang. In Nooraaru Bannagalu, Vasuki goes one up on what Arjun Janya usually pulls off in a more commercial manner – a spoofy tune (excellently sung here by Madhuri Sheshadri), complete with a neat Kerala boat song interlude. He Sharade, a beautifully composed prayer of sorts really comes alive in the earnestly wonderful singing by Asha and Sunidhi. Karthik’s guitar, and Venkatesh’s tabla (that joins in eventually) add value. Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs Season 14 contestant Jnanesh Ballari makes a fantastic debut with Balloon Song, a superbly swinging tune loaded with Nathan’s clarinet, a hugely enjoyable chorus (Tanush, Ashwin Sharma, Madhwesh, Vasuki Vaibhav and Gokul Abhishek) and Goddfrey Immanuel’s electric guitar. Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shaale, Kasaragodu’s soundtrack is a delightful follow-up to Vasuki Vaibhav’s composing debut, Rama Rama Re, even if Ondalla Eradalla’s soundtrack didn’t scale up.
