Music Review (Telugu) : Srimanthudu

Music Review (Telugu) : Srimanthudu
Music Composer: Devi Sri Prasad

Rama Rama is a typical standard DSP package which is rhythmic, catchy and Ranina Reddy's folk section towards the end is a surprise one. Sooraj Santhosh bolsters the song with his energetic vocals. Percussions in the second interlude with brass work is the highlight in an otherwise typical DSP track. Jatha Kalise starts off well but deja vu flavour in the tune makes this tiresome listen while Sagar and Suchitra's vocals supports the heavily languishing tune. Charuseela, though reminds nangaai, DSP's cool arrangements with guitar strums, brass sections and effective vocals by Yazin Nizar makes this song enjoyable till it lasts. DSP's second track with Raghu Dixit for another hard rock number Jaago and Dixit pulls off this one too with his effortless singing. DSP's arrangements with heavy drumming and raging electric guitar usage complements well with vocals. Dhimmatirigi is usual monotonous stuff from DSP and there is nothing special in this passable mass number except for enticing nadhaswaram usage. Title song is interesting for its string usage and rides mainly on the rustic vocals of MLR Karthikeyan.

Verdict: DSP's Srimanthudu is his usual stuff and the songs are enjoyable despite nothing offbeat in the tune or arrangements.

My rating: 7/10

Pick of the Album: Jaago, Srimanthuda, Charuseela
