Popular music director Ramana Gogula scored music for several successful films of top heroes of Telugu film industry including Victory Venkatesh (Premante Idera, Lakshmi), Power Star Pawan Kalyan (Thammudu, Badri, Johnny, Annavaram) and Prince Maheshbabu (Yuvaraju).

Besides Telugu movies, Ramana Gogula has also given music to a Kannada movie 'Yuvaraja' staring Shivrajkumar and a Tamil movie 'Badri', which are the remakes of Thammudu of Pawan Kalyan in Telugu.

For Ramana Gogula, music is just a passion. He is known for filling an ultramodern feel in the songs.

Hitherto he scored music for top stars, but this time agreed to score music for 'Viyyalavari Kayyalu, directed by E Sattibabu and produced by Lagadapati Sirisha Sridhar under the guidance of Lagadapati Sridhar and presented by Ramalakshmi Creations, with Udaykiran and Neha Jhulka in the lead.

Udaykiran is making a comeback with this film to the Telugu film industry. As Udaykiran possessed a lover boy image, the music director chose to give a little slow and melody filled routine commercial tunes.

However, there are a couple of songs which had good mass beat and all the songs were foot-tapping.

Telusa Cheli.

Singers: Naveen, Ganga
Lyricist: Anantha Sriram 

This number in the album was tuned in a routine commercial duet way. However, the song has melody with a slight touch of fast beat. The song begins with the tunes from keyboard coupled with drums and guitar. After the first stanza, the music director used classical notes to add a different flavour to the song. Ganga and Naveen rendered the song in good sync and the maintained beat / tempo / rhythm on a similar note all through the song. The use of veena and violin after the second stanza is a little good and gave a novel feeling even as the song runs with the same tempo.

Suryude Sare Annadu.

Singers: Chitra, Ramana, Sri Krishna
Lyricist: Bandaru Danayya 

This number had the mellifluous voice of Chitra. Beginning with piano/keyboard and drum sounds, the humming begins with a shehnoy noise. It is the title song and has good literary value as it appears as a group song within the family. The actual song began with guitar music and that guitar tune continued all through the song. Sri Krishna's voice joins Chitra and his voice is soothing. After the first stanza, Ramana used the drumbeat to give the group to dance. Flute and keyboard were used besides veena during the first stanza. English bits were used once and they were rendered by Ramana himself.

Neelaala Nee Kallu.

Singers: Sri Krishna, Sunita
Lyricist: Anantha Sriram

This is a duet composed in an English tune. This is one of the melodious tunes in the album and the music director used guitar, keyboard and drums to give a foot-tapping beat. The tune is very soothing and the audiences could enjoy the song while listening in their music system. The use of humming and the use of key board after the first stanza is worth listening though it reminds Ramana Gogula's routine and favourite tune. Sunita chose to use a husky voice and the melody in Srikrishna's voice was in perfect rhythm. A must listen song in the album.


Singers: Kalpana, Vijayalakshmi
Lyricist: Gosala Rambabu 

On listening the song, one could easily come to a conclusion that it is an item number. Kalpana and Vijayalakshmi were the apt selection for the song. Ramana Gogula chose a fa
