Music Review (Kannada) : Ishtakamya

Music Review (Kannada) : Ishtakamya
Music Composer: Ajaneesh Loknath

Nee Nangoskara, dulcet melody with ear-pleasing arrangements dominated by guitar and strings especially loved the guitar riffs in the first interlude. Shreya Goshal and composer itself croons the song in a brilliant manner while Shreya Goshal's captivates with Dum Dum hook, enticing touch by the composer. In Song's female version, composer kept arrangements and the tune intact while Shreya is fabulous with her rendition as always. Naa Ninage rides mainly on the impeccable arresting rendition by Chintan while Ajaneesh's string section rules the background throughout the song. Naa Ninage's another version sung by Mukthiyar falls a tad behind when compared to Chintan's version. Thangali's pleasant melody is elevated by Shreya Goshal's sweet rendition while Ajaneesh's neat orchestration with flute, tabla and Sax works wonderfully to the song's favour. Overall another fabulous melody from the composer. Payanadalli is another wonderfully composed song in the soundtrack where composer's alluring string portions in the background throughout the song is bolstered by Vijay Prakash's flawless vocals as expected. Chintheavadu, short track with sing along'ish tune, however Nagathalli's vocals didn't work much.

Verdict: After techno-laden Akira, Ajaneesh delivers fluffy easily accessible enjoyable melodies for Ishtakamya.

My rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Nee Nangoskara, Thangali, Payanadalli
