Music Review (Telugu): Bhale Manchi Roju

Music Review (Telugu): Bhale Manchi Roju
Music Composer: Sunny MR

        Ningi Needera starts with quite an eerie sound and singing for initial one minute while after that initial phase Arijit and Sunny M R captivate the listeners with cool rock flavoured tune. Particularly loved the catchy guitar riff meets classical sound in the interlude. The inspirational lyrics match well with the energetic tone of the song. Sunny MR shows his prowess as a programmer in Mila Mila with sporadic usage of harmonium and catchy mandolin strums peppered throughout the song. Sunny brings in another Bollywood singer Shashwat Singh to Telugu and he delivered well this fast paced track. However this song lacks the catchy tune apart from the title hook strictly when compared to the arrangements.

         Chalthi Ka Naam Gaadi is another hard rock song from Sunny where Shashwat Singh's sprightly rendition spruces up the song very well. Sunny Mixes the hard rock with trance elements occassionally very well. Overall highly energetic song which will appeal well along weith the visuals rather than as a standalone track.Sunny M R gives the serene Sufi touch to the melody Evari Roopo and the vocals is handled with earnest attempt by ever reliable Arijit Singh. Sunny's arrangements also quite enticing with lovely percussions, claps throughout the song and minimal sitar sounds to match the pious tone of the song.Vareva Ore Maccha has an interesting orchestration and quite an esoteric sounds with unusual combination of singers Amitabh Bhattacharya, Anthony daasan and Shanthini Sathiyanathan. However the quirkiness of all elements didn't quite effectively comes together well. However loved the Nadhaswaram mixing amidst the raucous kuthu number.Dol Dolre can be easily mistaken as the one composed by Amit Trivedi itself and the song has a stamp of Amit Trivedi's jubilant composition. Amit Trivedi pulled off quite effectually his Telugu debut as a singer while Sunny's groovy foot tapping tune propped up by quite an upbeat arrangements and lovely chorus portions.The title song borders on the familiar Sunny M R's territory tune wise but composer mixes the traffic sounds quite expertly along with lovely European styled string sections and other potpourri of sounds. Sunny MR's exquisite singing especially humming portions and amusing lyrics makes this one highly enjoyable song in the soundtrack.


Verdict: Sunny MR came out of his comfortable sound in Bhale Manchi Roju and the soundtrack works for most of its part apart from few misses. Sunny MR is one of the composer who continues to push the boundaries in bringing new sounds to Telugu cinema.

My Rating: 8/10
