The most expected movie of the year obviously would have the most expected album indeed. Keeravani’s Baahubali beginning was a revelation of all sorts and now the Conclusion is not far behind, the album is a mixed bag of goodies and has everything a listener would want for. Take a good set of headphones and get ready to fall into the land of Mahismathi.
Bale Bale :
The epic song of the album is Bale Bale, its majestic setup is evident from the word go. The track retains the signature of Baahubali from the first part and thrives on the rhythm. The magnificent trumpet is the star of the song, it mends itself to the right pitch giving the king a warm welcome. The lead singers strike chord with Daler taking care of the high pitch, Keeravani gives the emotional touch while Mounima’s feeble voice adds a soft touch to the track’s majestic outlook.
Orey Oar Ooril:
After the majestic title track, Orey Oar ooril starts on a low note, taking the listener by astonishment. But nevertheless powerful when it comes to the musical orchestration. It is the romantic duet of the album, and whatever glimpses we have seen of the song in the trailer, we are sure it will be one visual treat to check out. The bass level of the song is silent and grows slowly in the background with apt usage of the strings and well set drumming. The song probably is for the beautiful Anushka, Mohana and Deepu have done good justice
An emotional yet brilliant track in terms of percussion and chorus strikes your emotional content for its lyrics and dearie outlook. It praises the King and his efficient handling of the kingdom, Kaala Bhairava leads the track with a deep rooted high pitched chorus in the background. This one is a heartwarming number and crafts Rajamouli’s narrative magic is portrayed with yet again bombastic trumpets. While the first part relates the pain of Mahismathi people who plead their king not to leave the kingdom, the second half has them celebrating his coming back, the recursive signature is tweaked to suit the theme.
Kannaa Nee Thoongada:
Karky’s lyrics and the soothing lullaby is the standout feature of the album, the playful renderation of this track is a delight. Kanna Nee Thoongada has everything to impress the listener from the word go – playful, devotional lyrics, fantastic music direction and brilliant singing by Nayane Nair. The soulful flute gets into the ambience of a melody and the composer’s brilliance comes into foray with mixing Mirudangam, Tabla with enough bass. The track times to grow on you, but once it does it surely evolves into you.
The song is sorrowful, but not on a negative aspect but on the sacrifices and betrayal that the kingdom has faced. A heavy-duty number in the album, Oru Yaagam seemingly narrates Kattappa’s heartbreaking betrayal of killing Baahubali, Baahubali’s sacrifice, the Baahubali-Bhallaladeva battle and so on. The track has minimal but powerful vocals crisp and curt to the point. To get its intent amplified the slow violin paves way into a strong number with increasing strings and high chorus setup.
Rating : 3.2/5
