A Thaman musical

The first single from 'Prati Roju Pandage' is out, on Lahari Music.  Here we present its review.  The other songs will be reviewed as and when they are out.

Title track

Singer: Sri Krishna

Lyricist: KK

In a film whose title has the word 'festival' in it, the track comes with lyrics that tread the beaten path.  Positive words like 'Sambaram' and 'Sandallow' are liberally sprinkled everywhere in a song where more than a dozen family members laugh in unison.  Sri Krishna's voice is melodious in an understated way, like singer SPB Charan's.  Thaman scores a winner once again.  He is in a true form like never before.

'Ooo Baava'

Singers: Satya Yamini, Mohana Bhogaraju, Hari Teja

Lyricist: KK

The folksy feel of the song is a big plus.  As the song segues into a semi-modish mode, Thaman displays his ingenuity for everyone to taste.  The singers render it with a carefree vibe.  KK's lyrics come suffused with modern-day lingo, detailing a bit of the hero's character as well.  All in all, an apt song for a film that is mostly set against a rural backdrop.

Thakita Thakita

Singers: Rahul Siplingunj, Geetha Madhuri

Lyricist: Kasarla Shyam

The lyrics come in a bland language, with the theme of the song calling for a sanitized existence that eschews anything other than a life in a village with your joint family.  Rahul sings it like an Adnan Sami, while Geetha doesn't make her presence felt.  Thaman's beats don't really make the cut, the pub song like feel hardly makes an impact.  All in all, it's mediocre.


Singers: Vijay Yesudas

Lyricist: Seetharama Sastry

Sastry's lyrics are eminently rhythmic.  Be it 'Priyavaram' and 'Sambaram' or others, the celebrated lyricist laces the song with creative usages.  Thaman picks the right singer to give voice to a nostalgic old man.  The nostalgia-driven song is high on emotions, captured by Vijay Yesudas' deep voice. This song is a clear winner, stuffed as it comes with sentimentality and frolic.

You Are My High

Singers: Raashi Khanna, Deepu, Rahul Nambiar

Lyricist: Srijo

The song comes with foot-tapping beats and grows on ears like slow poison.  Thaman deploys an instrument in a deliberately intense fashion to drum up verve.  Srijo's lyrics are adequate, coming as they do with a mix of a liberal smattering of English words.  Raashi Khanna doubles up as a peppy singer, joining voice with the redoubtable Deepu-Rahul Nambiar duo.
