Miscellaneous listens

Yegiraney Yegiraney - Okka Ammayi Thappa: Abhay Jodhpurkar seems to be regular in Mickey J Meyer compositions recently and the young singer handles the typical ear-pleasing tune fabulously along with Ramya Behara. The tune has the shades of various Mickey's compositions, however, the lilting tune and singers make up for those minor issues.

Halli Srihalli -  Mudhugauv - Though the tune is not great as a standalone, the song turns out to be funky listen especially for the Chinmayi's sensual never heard before rendition  (read rarely - Guru's Naan Mutham thinbaval being the only song I can recollect which is similar to this one in her discography). Rahul raj spruces up the average tune with exciting Nadaswaram bit.

Ankhiyon udeek, - Suno: Shilpa Rao's take on the popular Quawwali Ankhiyon Udeek is insanely addictive, partly due to the charming original tune and dominating rock elements in the song. The icing on the cake along with Shilpa's rendition is breathtakingly beautiful esraj solos throughout the song.

Duma Dum - Suno : Shilpa Rao's Suno has another evergreen classic Duma Dum Mast kalandar and the modern variant is absolutely endearing as original. Thanks to the incredible Shilpa Rao and blissful Sharat Chandra Srivastava's violin lending the singer fantastic support. Loved the way the song ends on the musical high where both singing and instruments reach the crescendo.

P.S - Miscellaneous listen is the column where I'll be sharing my thoughts on the favourite song in the album which is not reviewed in my blog.
