Music Review (Telugu): Kanche

Music Review (Telugu): Kanche
Music Composer: Chirantan Bhatt

       Itu Itu ani chitikelu evvarivo brings back charms in retroTelugu song effectually while both Abhay Jodhpurkar and Shreya Goshal aces the pleasing tune with their pitch-perfect rendition. Especially loved the classical vocalizations in the second interlude. Chirantan Bhatt marks his presence with wonderful background orchestrations which features ghatams, lovely string section and flutes. Chirantan Bhatt packaged the rural number Ooru errayindhi Eru Horettundhi with expansive orchestration elements like thumping percussions, nadaswaram and bagpipes. Shankar Mahadevan showcases his prowess with his powerful rendition ably supported by chorus portions. 

        Nijamenani Nammani is another winner in the album where once again Shreya Goshal aces the melancholy with her nuanced singing. Chirantan Bhatt makes the orchestration minimal in the charanam portions whereas string sections reaches the crescendo during interludes. Srivennila Sastry's poignant lyrics accentuates the mood of the song. Chirantan Bhatt's string sections in Bhaga Bhagamani is enough to show the fiery tone of the song and Vijay Prakash spruces up the feel with his perfect vocals. Apart from string sections, flute portions stand apart in this track about sadness, anger due to war. Vijay Prakash gets another song Raa Mundadugeddam about love and how world can be converted to a better place to live. Once again Chirantan is top notch in orchestration especially loved the extensive racy first interlude with string sections. Chirantan Bhatt ends the soundtrack with Love is war instrumental track, lovely mix of western classical orchestration which quite fits the bill perfectly.

Verdict: Krish extracted another musical extravaganza in the lines of the director's previous movie Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum. Expansive orchestration along with magical lyrics makes this one best in recent times.

My rating: 8.25/10

Pick of the Album: Itu Itu ani Chitikelu, Raa Mundadugeddam, Nijamenani Nammani, Ooru errayindhi Eru Horettundhi
