It's a five-song album rendered by Anudeep, Yazin, Anurag Kulkarni, Sahithi Chaganti, Dhanunjay, Simha, Lipsika, Sameera Bharadwaj, and Geetha Madhuri. Lyrics are by Sri Mani, Ramajogayya Sastry and Bhaskar Batla.


Artistes: Anudeep, Yazin
Lyricist: Sri Mani

The first stanza is on the lines of a song from 'Jagadam'.  Sri Mani's lyrics are stuffed with everyday lingo of the modern creature.  Ghibran's music follows an unlikely template.  It's as if the mood was not to be romantic or playful, but psychic.  As the lyrics and the vocals respectively mirror the extant popular culture and are conventional, the song passes muster.  Anudeep and Yazin put up a good show.

Baby Doll

Artistes: Anurag Kulkarni, Sahithi Chaganti
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

The song made its impact early on when the single was released.  But for syllables like 'la', 'li', 've' et al, Ramajogayya Sastry would have come to be known as having written his first English song.  He imaginatively uses rhyming words like crazy and cozy.  The many metaphors tease.  Anurag Kulkarni's booming voice helps.  Sahithi's off-beat vocals do the song a favour.  Ghibran's instrumentation is pulsating.

Ompula Dhaniya

Artistes: Dhanunjay, Simha, Lipsika
Lyricist: Bhaskar Batla

Dhanunjay, Simha and Lipsika have the right vocals to deliver the song to the intended target listeners.  Bhaskar Batla marshals his mass-sounding language couched in soft-core double entendre.  The creative use of words like 'archana' and 'halchal' is enjoyable.  Ghibran's music for this item song-like number may have longevity as far as the music for 'pallavi' part is concerned.

Naalo Nenenaa

Artiste: Sameera Bharadwaj
Lyricist: Sri Mani

Sri Mani fondles with his poetic imagination.  As the girl sings that her colorless life has been turned around, expect the heroine's character to be not just that of a 'baby doll'.  Sameera Bharadwaj's melodious voice is soothing.  Ghibran punctuates the number with pitched musical interludes.

Hypare Hypare

Artistes: Dhanunjay, Geetha Madhuri, Lipsika
Lyricist: Bhaskar Batla

It's time for that song in the album where the hero reiterates his heroism in the heroine's presence, while the latter extols his virtues with all the possible irreverent language.  Trust Geetha Madhuri and Lipsika to pull it off as well as possible.  Bhaskar Batla once again pens the number in that old-school mould to perfection.

Verdict: Ghibran gets 'Hyper'-active here.  'Baby Doll' takes the cake.  Others make the cut.  An out-and-out youthful audio with Ghibran offering trickles of change.

Rating: 2.75/5
