Thaman keeps the momentum alive. After Businessman and Bodyguard, Nippu is a hat-trick with a couple of potential chartbusters. It is interesting to listen to his instrumentation and peppy interludes in song after song.
Nippu has quite some good lyrics and a host of of the writers, including Ananth Sriram, Bhaskarabhatla, Chandrabose, Vanamali, Ramajogayya Sastry and Viswa chip in with their poetic touch.
Artist: Javed Ali
Alibaba is different in that it assumes varied hues in the course of the song. Javed Ali's Chakri-like vocals make the song earthen, while Thaman fills the song with interludes that have a comic touch. Viswa's lyrics are simple and catchy.
Artist: Rahul Nambiar, Sri Krishna, Deepu, Krishna Chaitanya, Geetha Madhuri, Sudha, Hima Bindhu, Parnika
Lyrics: Ananth Sriram
The instrumentation and vocals combine to lend this 'family' song that Dethadi Dethadi number from Dookudu. The eight singers and the musician belt out a hummable song.
Thaman entertains with his vocals as well as composing. The song grows on you as you hear it for the second time. Bhakarabhatla's lyrics are not novel, but Thaman concocts a spin with his music.
Artists: Karthik, Chitra
This song wins because of the electronic instrument riffs and rhythms, not to forget Chitra's magical vocals. Karthik is not far behind, but it is vintage Chitra who enriches the proceedings. Thaman scores a sure-shot chartbuster, complete with a soothing choral humming. Indeed, the catchiest song of the album.
Artist: Tippu, Harini
Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
This song is once again proves that Tippu's voice is tailor-made for Ravi Teja. Harini's vocals have an electrical ring. Above all, Thaman musical binge is extraordinary. As hard as you try to hum Oy Pilla, it eludes you. Listen it to feel it.
Artist: Sravana Bhargavi
What is a Gunasekhar film without that Hindu devotional/cultural touch? Maha Ganapathim by Sravana Bhargavi is inspiring, while Thaman's background score is experimental.
Artist: Shankar Mahadevan
Shankar Mahadevan must have had a ball time singing this unconventional number. Though this is not the best one in the album, it stands out because Thaman follows a less-trodden path here. Chandrabose delineates high brow preaching in a simple language. Gunasekhar's films have always had a positive song; Nippu is no exception.
