Mickey J Meyer's imprint is write over the album.  It's a mix of melody and youthfulness.  Sirivennela writes all the songs to a profound effect.

Getting choicest of singers on board, Mickey delivers a music lover's album.


Artists: Rahul Nambiar, Revanth
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

It's a male lead from the Mega family.  An apt song for him and you can't expect a different debut song.  Penned by the profound Sirivennela, the song is both youthful even while having touches of melody.  Rahul Nambiar and Revanth give lend it a very masculine feel even while sounding soft in flavour.  A different try altogether from Mickey.


Artists: Mickey J Meyer, Sai Shivani
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

It just sounds like another rip-off of a song from Life is Beautiful and/or Happy Days.  Not quite a mega melody, but Mickey manages to give it his Midas Touch.  Sirivennela has been a splendid replacement to Veturi, giving Mickey an opportunity to dish out melodies.  His vocals are fine, and Sai Shivani makes an impact.

Chaala Bagundi

Artist: Hari Charan
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

Hari Charan has got a Midas Touch of his own and this is what delivers this otherwise mediocre musical.  Chaala Bagundi betrays his talent quite well because of the vocal intensity that the song demands.  Sirivennela's lyrics are laced with profound meaning.  Mickey should have made it more catchy by adding pep mid course.


Artist: Chitra
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

Mickey completes his album yet again with a traditional song steeped in classical-like music.  Gopikamma is sung by Chitra to perfection.  Needless to say, Sirivennela's putative lyrical depth comes to the fore yet again, embracing the secular and the divine.  While it makes a good one to listen, the song's popularity will eventually depend on how it is picturized.

Arere Chandrakala

Artists: Karthik, Sai Shivani
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

Karthik and Sai Shivani are at it yet again. This is a welcome change from the style of Mickey.  He tries to tread a different path, but ends up cooking up a rather moth-eaten duet.  Sirivennela's lyrics are surely the saving grace, as ever.  His romantics are always special and this one is no exception.


Artist: Swetha Pandit
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry

Mickey is better here.  What does it mean?  Oh yes! He is there indulging in Nth rip-off of his own song from his previous hit album or two.  Swetha Pandit's mellifluous voice is apt for a melody of this ilk.  There is a trace of a Bollywood melody, but it may totally inadvertent.  Sirivennela's female-centric lyrics smack of poetic depth.

Mukunda Theme

Artist: Instrumental

It seems to be a hero-centric theme song.  A good one at that, never mind the inevitable rip-off flavour.
