Music Review (Kannada): Sipaayi

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

Muddu Pori sung by Ajaneesh Loknath works in parts especially title hook and interludes with the tinge of middle eastern touch and humming in the first and second interludes respectively. However as the song as whole, the instant catchy factor is missing. Nee Nadiyaagi, pleasant listen backed by wonderful violin and string sections throughout the song. Ajaneesh Loknath and Nanditha sails through this peppy melody wonderfully. Overall, easily accessible listen in the album. Nanna Kanasina rides on the mesmerising vocals of Chinmayi (though she sounds totally different) while Ajaneesh ups the ante with soothing arrangements with flute, string pieces and keys. Kannalle meetingu where Ajaneesh pitches his Andhra styled kuthu which fails to elevate from the mediocrity level even Shashank and CR Bobby's energetic vocals unable to salvage this pedestrian tune. Yaara Haneyali, hardrock tune with gloomy vibe attached to it which is evident by the flute piece and Udith Haritas grungy vocals.

Verdict: Ajaneesh continues to be promising composer to look out for in the Kannada music industry. Though Sipaayi is few notches below the composer's previous outing Ishtakamya, composer shines with engaging set of songs.

My rating:7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Nanna Kanasina, Yaara Haneyali, Nee Nadiyaagi
