Music Review (Telugu): Ninnu Kori

Music Review (Telugu): Ninnu Kori
Music Composer: Gopi Sundar

Unnatundi Gundey's arrangements can be easily associated with the composer and he kept it easily accessible with dominant strings while the tune is average and gets much engaging in the charanam portions of the song. Karthik and Chinmayi who delivered wonderful tracks for Gopi Sundar album in Telugu, nails this melodious track also effortlessly. Adiga Adiga is an affecting melancholy which gains amply enough from Sid Sriram's vocals and the singer is pitch perfect with his rendition while Gopi Sundar's minimal guitar laden backgrounds accentuate the singer's prowess. The interludes are adorned with wailing violin solos in tune with the mood of the song. Sreejo's lyrics deserve special mention.

Once upon a time lo is a mass dance track which is interesting in parts but the tune fails to engage throughout the track. Though Arun Gopan tries to make the song little enticing with his vocals, the track lacks the instant catchy appeal and it works partially due to the amusing lyrics by Bhaskarabatla. In Hey Badhulu Chepavey, Gopi Sundar sets the upbeat tune for Anantha Sriram's pathos lyrics and though the tune sounds standard one, the interludes are Gopi Sundar'ish with an adequate mix of flute with classical tinge and string sections. Haricharan sails through the song effortlessly.

Verdict: Though Ninnu Kori falls tad low in  Gopi Sundar's splendid  Telugu repertoire, the soundtrack is adequately enjoyable while Nani continues to get the best music in his films irrespective of the composers.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Adiga Adiga, Unnati Gundey
