Different strokes

'Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi' has music by Vivek Sagar.  Rendered by Cisco Chi,  Anurag Kulkarni, Manisha Eerabathini, Hemachandra, Wilson Herald, Suraj Santosh and the music director himself, it has lyrics by four different lyricists.

Swagatham Suswagatam

Singer: Cisco Chi
Lyrics: Cisco Chi

The retro mood of the song is irresistible.  That's why the makers have made this number the film's signature song.  The prudent deployment of drums and percussion is a treat.  Vivek Sagar plays with the guitar and the bass like a pro.  Cisco Chi doles out a splendid jazz.

Aagi Aagi

Singers: Anurag Kulkarni and Manisha Eerabathini
Lyrics: Krishna Kanth

The leisurely melody comes with a Rehmanesque hangover for sure.  Anurag Kulkarni's soothing vocals have a match in Manisha Eerabathini's. Unlike in most other songs of the album, the lyrics of this melody are easily decipherable.  Krishna Kanth's meaning-laden lyrics match the musical complexity of the number.

Parada Jarupukoni

Singer: Hemachandra
Lyrics: Kittu Vissapragada

It's like a liberation song, much as the title suggests.  The snazzy feel sits well with Hemachandra’s dazzling vocals. The clever use of the drums and the saxophone bears a testimony to Vivek Sagar's knack.  Kittu Vissapragada is proving to be a highly competent dialogue-writer as well as a lyricist who can pen simple but meaningful lines.

College Agelona

Singer: Wilson Herald
Lyrics: Kittu Vissapragada

The retro-style song once again comes with a lazy feel.  And it's meant to be that way.  Wilson Herald's voice doesn't overpower the music while still making a strong impact.  Once again, Kittu Vissapragada’s lyrics sound very natural.  There is no sense of forced themes.  Special mention for Pranav Chaganty's rap.

Veedioponidhi Okateley

Singer: Vivek Sagar
Lyrics: Vivek Aatreya

This song follows an old-fashioned trajectory fashioned by quite a few Kollywood music directors in the 1990s.  Vivek Sagar doubles up as the singer for this number.  Vivek Aatreya's thoughtful lyrics drive the song's emotions in a unique way.

Maare Kalaley

Singer: Suraj Santosh
Lyrics: Vivek Aatreya

The electric guitar delivers a certain rhythm.  Vivek Sagar dares to care out his own path without falling back on the low-hanging fruit.  Sooraj Santhosh's modish voice goes well with the overall mood of the album.  The lyrics are a big draw by, once again, Vivek Aatreya.


The album presents a heady mix of songs.  The music style is unconventional.  If you are looking for songs in a familiar territory, you have them, too.

Rating: 3/5
