Music Review (Kannada): Pushpaka Vimana

Music Review (Kannada): Pushpaka Vimana
Music Composer: Charan Raj

Jilka Jilka is an absolute euphonious treat where Charan Raj's enticing classical fusion works fabulously in the mesmerising vocals of Indu Nagaraj. Composer brilliantly layered the soothing flute and the thoroughly endearing percussion elements throughout the track. Charanraj's lullaby melody works like the charm in Jogulave where the composer's minimalistic orchestration supported by grand piano and strings in the interlude complements the serene melody which is handled behind the mic by the composer itself effortlessly. Haricharan is the star of the another totally engrossing melody Mugilu Belmugilu and the singer is top-notch with his classical nuances. Charan Raj throws few lovely elements like classical violin solos in the interludes and the orchestral extravaganza is evident in the second interlude's melange of sounds. Charan Raj extends this wonderful melody and delivered the Pushpaka Vimana Theme which is an equally engrossing composition. Baana Thoredhu Neeli is once again a stunning Hindustani melody delivered stupendously with enriching finesse in the vocals by Siddhartha Belmannu while Charan Raj's arrangements are brilliant dominated by Sitar, Tabla and flute combination. Charan Raj ends the soundtrack with the short track Ee Srushtiya sung by Ganesh Kranth and the highlight is undeniably the reverberating usage of flute throughout this two-minute track.

Verdict: CharanRaj delivers another fine soundtrack after Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu.

My Rating: 8.5/10

Pick of the Album: All tracks.
