Music Review (Telugu): Bhale Bhale Magadivoy

Music Review (Telugu): Bhale Bhale Magadivoy
Music Composer: Gopi Sundar

      Gopi Sundar gives title song in truly upbeat Telugu mass kind of song with punchy orchestral elements loaded with heavy percussion elements especially dhols. Karthik and especially Mohana Bhograju's sprightly rendition  along with BhaskaraBhatia's lyrics which glorifies protagonist capabilities makes this song funny exuberant ride throughout the song. In Endaro, Gopi Sundar is in full form played his strength effectually, brilliant classical fusion of one of the Pancharatna Keerthanai, especially loved the violin bits which featured in the trailer too. Apart from the splendid fusion, Reneka Arun's rendition of this keerthanai is top-notch and loved the manner in which her aalaap synced beautifully with the drumming in the background towards the end. 

       How How is a funky song rendered with apposite attitude by Karthik while orchestration too features modish sounds with nadhaswaram adorned with Veena'ish string sounds. Bhaskarabhatia's whimsical lyrics is another major asset in this enjoyable song which will work well with visuals rather than as a standalone song. Motta Modatisari has a simple pleasant tune especially charanam portions and the mood is accentuated with Sachin Warrier's splendid rendition along with kid's chorus sections. Gopi Sundar kept the sounds too simple and rhythmic whereas composer's prowess is apparent with the usage of strings in the interludes adorned with upbeat punjabi styled percussions. Hello Hello is a racy composition dominated by synthesized electronic sounds sung with enough enthusiasm by Karthik and Chinmayi, same duo who gave wonderful melody in Gopi's Telugu debut. Apart from the synthesized elements, Gopi Sundar gave rich sounds with classical guitar played like veena and ghatam in the first and second interlude respectively.

Verdict: Gopi Sundar gave quite an engaging and interesting sounds to Telugu album after his splendid debut in Malli Malli idi Rani Roji

My rating: 8.5/10

Pick of the Album: Endaro, Hello Hello, Motta Modatisari
