A worthy album
Monday, June 3, 2013 • Telugu Comments

It is time for yet another Krishna Vamsi audio - something where each song is driven by the needs of the  script rather than any other extraneous consideration.  Sirivennela Seetharama Sastry, the director's favourite, doesn't disappoint.  When the theme is paisaa, his talent comes to the fore like best.

The singers, right from Tippu and Vijay Prakash to Shweta Mohan and others give their best.

Sai Karthik gives one of his career bests.

Eppudaithe Puttindho

Artists: Krishna Vamsi, Vitthal, Dhanraj, 'Thagubothu' Ramesh, Chandra
Lyricist: Seetharama Sastry

It makes a good title song and Sastry's lyrics have a flavour of both satire and poetry.  The rhyming words are both rhythmic and meaningful.  Phrases like 'fatal attraction' and 'total distraction' give it a modern ring.  The choice of singers may be contestable, but overall it is a 'paisa vasool' song.

Govindaa Govindaa

Artists: Tippu, Baby Thillu
Lyricist: Anantha Sriram

We can easily sense that Krishna Vamsi extracted such music which would be congenial for Nani to deliver the dance moves that are typical of him.  Anantha Sriram's lyrics are usually good and Tippu's vocals add soul to it.

Mayya Mayya

Artist: Vijay Prakash
Lyricist: Seetharama Sastry

Sai Karthik proves himself in adapting the very famous Arabian tune to good effect.  Vijay Prakash's vocals are a blessing and Sastry's lyrics once again are enjoyable.  With good music, vocals and lyrics, the song has all the trappings of becoming a sure shot hit.

Neetho Edho

Artists: Shwetha Mohan, Sai Karthik
Lyricist: Seetharama Sastry

Shweta Mohan's mellifluous voice and Sai Karthik's humming makes Neetho Edho a worthy number.  Sastry's poetic insights are usually bright.  The music director adds a flavour that is sure to make it a hall time hit.

Paisa Paisa

Artists: Ranjith, Rahul Nambiar, Karthik Kumar
Lyricist: Seetharama Sastry

Barring the vocals, the song is largely sub par.  Having listened to the other song on the importance of having and being paisaa, this song seems to be redundant.  Unlike the song sung by Krishna Vamsi and Co, this is a bit suave but not necessarily sophisticated.  Makes for a good running song, probably.

Paisa (Theme)

Artist: Sai Karthik

The theme song stands out for its simplicity, but it could have avoided being way too inspired.  An average number, overall.
