A Devi Sri Prasad Musical

In this section, we are going to review the songs of 'Pushpa', out on Aditya Music.

Oo Antava..Oo Oo Antava

Singer: Indravathi Chauhan 

Lyricist: Chandrabose

Chandrabose's lyrics are about what is wrong with the attitude of men. The lines not so subtly question the patriarchal attitudes with respect to women. Indravathi's vocals sound fresh. It's smart that the much-happening Mangli has been picked to render the Kannada version, while an unknown singer has been chosen to croon the Telugu version. Devi Sri Prasad's confidence is reflected in his choice of singers, as ever. The song is a winner in the way the pitch is muted for an item song.

Daakko Daakko Meka

Singer: Shivam 

Lyricist: Chandrabose

Not for nothing that the song was billed as the wildest tune of the year. The promo was kicka$$, with the male protagonist brimming with raging energy. The lyrics are themed around his character's ideology and go a long way in becoming integral to his characterization. Replete with particular references to the ways of the wild, the lines have a character of their own. DSP's music is pulsating and a delight to follow. It grows on your ears instantly and is a massive hit. The beats can be addictive!


Singer: Sid Sriram

Lyricist: Chandrabose

Like the first song from the album, this one too has been penned by Chandrabose, whose language sounds easy but is striking at the same time. The lines suggest that Pushpa Raj, otherwise a battle-hardened man, becomes a soft-spoken one in the presence of Srivalli. The first stanza has a hint that he sees himself as a leader. Sid Sriram does lend the song a bit of sophistication, which is in total contrast to the unkempt look and careless body language that we see of the hero. It's a dashing tune from DSP, the quality of whose tune is superior. The 'Thaggede Le' mannerism seen in the lyrical video is the icing on the cake.

Saami Saami

Singer: Mounika Yadav

Lyricist: Chandrabose

After the vibrant 'Dakko Dakko Meka' and the vivacious 'Srivalli', the third single from 'Pushpa' is a bit underwhelming. The tuning doesn't sound great and one could mistake that the number is from a medium-range movie. A caveat: a lot of DSP songs grow on the ears with time. Singer Mounika Yadav shows ease and has the vocals that suit a special number. Chandrabose's lyrics are the best part of the song, bringing out Srivalli's desire for Pushpa Raj's attention. She seeks his attention better than the song seeks the audience's attention.

Eyy Bidda Idhi Naa Adda

Singer: Nakash Aziz

Lyricist: Chandrabose

Nakash Aziz's voice is strong enough for a song that has the male lead literally flexing his muscles. The title itself indicates that the hero is into a high-stakes game, claiming dominance over his fiefdom. Chandrabose's lyrics are sincere, giving the right dose of heroism and a glimpse into the story. DSP's tune is not inventive and the tempo is not typical.
