After providing some wonderful melodies for Anand, KM Radhakrishnan has taken his music credentials one level higher by this film. It is very pleasant to hear songs with beautiful lyrics and meaning and chorus that actually enhances the mood and appeal of the song and does not hamper it. The class and honesty of the director directly translates to the quality of music and lyrics that's produced and every song in the album is beautiful. Almost all songs are based on classical raagas, but the fusion, style and modernization works very well.

Andamgaalena  4.5*  Singer : Chorus, Sunitha

The song starts off with a beautiful Guitar strumming and the Heroine asking "Andangalena, assalem baalena? Antha level entoi neeku?". The song is melodious with pleasant chorus and Sunitha sings it superbly throughout but there is some scope of improvement in singing the high pitched phrases. The lyrics needs special mention as they are simple and very beautiful, take this for example "telugu aadapaduchu, telupaledu manasu, maha teliyanattu, natanalelane?", Veturi is superb. It's been long that a beautiful melody such as this one was composed in recent times and this song will please all sections of audience.  A superb start to the album.

Manasa Gelupu  5*  Singer : Chithra K S, Shankar Mahadevan

This song starts off again with a guitar piece which is melodious, then takes off at breakneck pace and at high pitch. This is an inspirational song which is composed as a fusion of classical music and western style. Chitra, Shankar and chorus excel in their renditions and each rendition is supported by classical raga aalapana, swaras and followed by beautiful guitar. The lyrics are superb and inspiring "Manasaa gelupu needera..manishai veligi poveraa..". In simple words this song is a beautiful combination of Swaram, raagam and Bhaavam. The kind of freedom with which Chitra and Shankar join the interludes with singing classical music swara's adds the extra zing to the song. For the very keen listener, the violin piece in the interludes follow the same pattern as the song "Jhummandi naadam.." composed by the great K.V. Mahadevan. This is a thoroughly enjoyable number composed based on classical raga (Revati?) and KMR deserves a bow for composing this so well.

Manasavacha  3.5*  Singer : Chithra K S, Unni Krishnan

This song has heavy usage of classical raagam (Bhimpalasi? listen to "Kismat se humko.." from pukar) which is sung very well by Chitra. Unnikrishnan renders the song very well too and the classical touch is un-miss able, but its not necessarily cinema like. The song is melodious and the theme is Love. Veturi again comes up with his trademark simple and beautiful lyrics.

Ramachakkani Sita  5*  Singer : Gayathri

Wow, one cannot stop listening to this pleasant song over and over again. The lyrics are in praise of Lord Rama and one can guess that the reference of His kalyanam is used to explain the events happening in the movie. Gayathri is superb in her rendition and is amply supported by pleasant guitar and violin. This song is also based on classical raagam (Aananda Bhairavi?). The phrase "Ettagalada seeta jadanu taali katte velalo?" has been composed and sung extremely well. There is class written all over this song and highlights the quality of the music director.

Tippulu Tappulu  3*  Singer : Shreya Ghoshal

This is a rain song and could be used as the intro song of the heroine. It is composed at a fast pace which showcases the heroine as fun loving and playful. The tune is similar to "Hai re hai jampandu
