Music Review (Telugu) : Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju

Music Review (Telugu) : Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju
Music Composer: Gopi Sundar

Maharba, typical sufi styled track with tabla dominates throughout the track adorned with lovely strings in the interludes. Vocals by K S chitra along with uncredited male voice in the mid way is an additional asset to the track and she took the track to another level with her nuanced rendition at certain portions. Gopi Sundar utilizes guitar and veena (or sliding guitar) in an intriguing way in Yenno Yenno results in perfect soothing ambience. Icing to the cake is the sweet vocals by Karthik and chinmayee which complements the composers effective orchestration and chorus too gels well with the track. The tune in the second half especially 2:10 to 3.15 is more engaging thanks for the superb rendition by lead singers. Gopi ropes another talented singer Haricharan to deliver the solo Variche Prema with tabla and clapping adorned with strings in the arrangement. Song which starts like emotional slow song but as song proceeds tune turns enticing. Gathama is purely Priya himesh's show and the lady impresses with her mesmerizing rendition enhanced by lovely guitar strums by Gopi sundar. Gopi Sundar ends the album with contrasting track Choti Jindagi, hard rock guitar mixed with drumming in an effectual way and Hiranmayi pulls off the song with her punchy vocals in tandem with the mood of the song.

Verdict: Gopi Sundar's telugu debut brings extremely impressive sound for the telugu audiences and Sharvanand gets two album this year which is high on musical quality.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Gathama, Yenno Yenno, Maharba
