Music Review (Telugu): Savitri

Music Review (Telugu): Savitri
Music Composer: Shravan

Shravan's Savitri opens up with endearing semi-classical song Anaganaga and the composer brings us to God's own country with extensive usage of Chenda melam, cymbals, rhythmic percussions and the blissful flute. Shravan's tune is also quite an engaging and rhythmic one which complements well with the arrangements. Fly like a bird is an average techno track with Yazin Nizar's vocals keep the listener in the hook. The tune by Shravan works partially but failed to engage altogether as a package. In Pilla O Pilla, Shravan breezes through with the simple likable melody while Hemachandra and Lalitha Kavya bolsters the melody with their fabulous vocals. Shravan's arrangements are also pleasing with the brilliant usage of flute and Veena. Though the song's beatbox version is also a decent listen, however, the song lacks the punch when compared to the duet version of the song. Maar Maar Teenmaar is the energetic foot-tapping rhythmic song with the movie lead Nara Rohith rendering the song with the right attitude. Shravan's blasting percussions and screechy guitar work gel well with the tone of the song. The title song has the percussion-laden upbeat rhythm throughout the song and composer weaves the pleasing folk tune around this lovely arrangements with blissful violin portions towards the end being the highlight. Chitramainadi is another gorgeous melody rides mainly on the vocals of Chitra and Sai Charan. Shravan throws out some brilliant violin solos in the interludes.

Verdict: Shravan scores big time with arresting melodies in this new Nara Rohith's Savitri.

My rating: 8/10
