Sai Karthik delivers a decent musical output. His latest offering is not a very versatile one, but at least three songs are worthy.
B.Subbaraya Sharma, Sirivennela Seetha Rama Sastry, Ramajogayya Sastry, Kedarnath, Balaji pen the songs, while Baba Sehgal returns with his characteristic gusto. Hari Charan, Ranjith, Sai Charan, Chinmayee, Ramya and others pass muster.
Cheliya Listen here
Artists: Achu, Ramya Nisk
Lyricist: Sirivennela Seetharama Sastry
The song straddles the path of a soothing romance and a peppy one. Achu's vocals are offbeat and the lyrics are full of regular doses. The music by Karthik is just about ok.
Endukila Listen here
Artists: Hari Charan, Chinmayee
The song is composed of meaningful lyrics and has a degree of intensity about it. Hari Charan and Chinmayee breath life into it. Karthik's music might not be innovative, but it is definitely soothing.
Holi Holi Listen here
Artists: Ranjith, Priya Hemesh, Sharmila, Koushik Menon and chorus
The song is largely not tuneful. It looks like the equivalent of rambling diatribe. The vocals of Ranjith, for example, don't come with the necessary gusto. The lyrics are mostly lost in the noise.
Om (Theme) Listen here
Artists: Sai Charan, Dinakar, Divija Karthik
The thing about this theme song is that it is inspired. The trajectory it follows is well-established and it gives a sacred feeling. Beyond that, the song fails to hold our interest for any other reason.
Pada Pada Listen here
Artist: Baba Sehgal
Lyricist: B Subbaraya Sharma
The music reminds us of Mahesh Babu and Baba Sehgal's booming voice reminds us of Pawan Kalyan. These qualifications are enough to make Pada Pada.. a hit. Much is expected from the picuturization. The lyrics are trendy and the mood of the song itself is energetic.
Right Now Listen here
Artists: Baba Sehgal, Bindhu Mahima
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry
Though it begins on a high note, the song takes an undesirable turn, though for a brief while. The incongruity is made good by Baba Sehgal's yet another energetic performance. The beats are right and the lyrics are good.
