Music Review (Kannada): Sundaranga Jaana

Music Review (Kannada): Sundaranga Jaana
Music Composer: Ajaneesh Loknath

Kalkondu bitte's breezy guitar laden prelude is followed by thumping high octane Haricharan in never heard vocal tone while Ajaneesh throws some enjoyable easily accesible sound cues. Overall simple melody comes off lively due to Haricharan's vocals and tidy synth dominated arrangements. Ee Santhelu Siguva rides on the mellifluous vocals of Shreya Goshal and she sounds splendid as always while the composer segues classical cues in the interludes stands apart in this enjoyable melody. The underlying string sections in the background complements the song particularly well. Santosh Venky delivers adequate support to the female singer. Fly Fly's familiar Jazz/ Rock and roll tune aside, Shashank Seshagiri and Lavanya's buoyant vocals make this peppy song easily accessible. The composer's jubilant usage of horn is an undeniable highlight. Particularly loved the sound cues toward the end of the song. Nandana sounds bland and although the song rides on the catchy factor in the tune, Vijay Prakash aces the typical tune particularly well. Jilka fame Indhu Nagaraj's processed vocals is bit turn off, however the improvisations within the confined soundscape is the likeable one from the singer.

Verdict:  Short functional soundtrack with lilting melodies from one of the promising composer in Kannada industry

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Ee Santhelu Siguva, Kalkondu bitte, Fly Fly
