When a successful comes together again, the expectation is always bound to be high. And so it is with Bunny as humungously successful pair of Allu Arjun and Devi Sri Prasad, who made history with Arya, are back in this. The songs, as befitting a mass film, are on expected lines.

1) Bunny Bunny

The song starts with typical Devi Sri Prasad's energy. And it stays so till the end. Sung with verve by Murali and Srilekha Parthasarathy, this is a mass number. Srilekha seems to have more variation than Malathi who is generally preferred for such songs.

2) Jabilammavo

When you see the name Malathi in the singer's list, you expect all the instruments blaze off from the start. But you are in for a pleasant surprise. What you get instead is an interesting soft number that is husky and honeyed. Sagar, the male singer, cooks up the necessary soft emotions, even though he seems to labor too much in places. When you hear the lady singer, you wonder whether it is really Malathi. But since that is what the official list says, you believe it and enjoy the lady's voice offered in a new light.

3) Kana Padaleda

The conch shells are blown and the big drums boom. This is an inspiring poem rendered song-like with the usual style by S P Balasubramaniam. A situational kind of number.

4) Maro Maro

The bass guitar beguiles you. So does the sitar piece as the rhythm pads take over. By the time Tippu takes charge, you kind of get the hang of the song. It is full of beans and perhaps will showcase Allu Arjun's dancing abilities. The song has the kind of energy that will appeal to the modern-day youngsters.

5) Mayilu Mayilu

Usually music directors sing only mass numbers or extreme pathos-filled songs. Here it is the case of the former. Devi Sri Prasad gives a chance to the singer in him to a typical  front-bencher song. The lyrics are true to type and so is the orchestration. A fun number, really. But the point is why on earth a music director should sing. This song does not provide a convincing answer.

6) Va Va Vareva

Karthik and Sumangali specialize in soft numbers. But here they are used in a foot tapping song. Both acquit themselves very well. In fact, Karthik unveils a new facet to his abilities, singing with the abandon of a Shankar Mahadevan. The instrumentation also offers an interesting variation. It is not a mindlessly rhythm-infested number. Devi Sri Prasad has done what he is good at --- give a mix of everything. But is it good enough for those looking for a repeat of Arya?
