It's been a long time since the Kannada film audience have been treated to some really melodious tunes. It's also a great experience to listen to live music rather than something that's churned out by a programmed keyboard.
Nenapirali could easily be credited to be music director Hamsalekha second coming into the music scene.
The title track, Nenapirali sung by Chitra and Chetan, which comes to you in three different versions is something that any listener can't help but hum along. The songs are already a big rage among music lovers. Listening to the music is a journey by itself.
It's a musical film that stresses on the importance on the music being a part of the film rather than just a couple of songs added for the sake of commercial value.
The fact that the film is about the youth, about relationships, about memories and a lot of fun is what comes across from the music. The lyrics too take you deeper into the story.
Singers on this album include S B Balasubramanya, Anupama, Soumya Raoh, Anoop, Vijay S Das, Chetan Saska, Chitra, Ravi Shankar, Suchitra Latha, Hemanth and Divya Raghavan.
Great voices, meaningful lyrics and even more greater musical content makes for some very pleasant and soulful listening.
