Music Review (Kannada): Mungaru Male 2

Music Review (Kannada): Mungaru Male 2
Music Composer: Arjun Janya

Gamanisu is an incredibly pleasant melody topped with ear-worming guitar strums and Sonu Nigam's impeccable rendition while Arjun Janya adorned the melody with brief Mano thang's sarangi intermittently and string sections. Arjun Janya followed the same template as in prequel soundtrack, Shreya Goshal crooning the Gamanisu's female version Kanasalu and the song is enchanting as original. Thanks to the tune and Shreya's mesmerising vocals. 

Arjun Janya roped in another Bollywood singer Armaan Malik to croon the immersive melody Sariyaagi where once again dreamy arrangements featuring guitars, Chennai Orchestra's string sections, whistles makes this one engaging till it lasts. Armaan Malik featured in another gorgeous number Neenu Irade dominated with synthesized pop beats and melody flows seamlessly without hurdle. Anuradha Bhat and chorus vocals ably support the easily accessible melody and loved the way nadhaswaram bits and slide guitar is used in the interludes. Onte song's tune is a pedestrian one catering to the mass audiences of the soundtrack, however Arjun done a well job with respect to orchestration in throwing out some fabulous usage of guitars and violin. My daddy is another mediocre tune and Benny Dayal's vocals and kamalakar's flute make it listenable to certain extent. Trap song and Mashup fails to make an impact after the string of lovely melodies.

Verdict: Arjun Janya delivered highly rich melodies for Mungaru Male's sequel and made the soundtrack memorable as Mano Murthy's Mungaru Male.

My Rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Gamanisu, Kanasalu, Sariyaagi, Neenu Irade
