Rising up to the occasion is Chakri, the forgotten musician. He belts out one of his career's most interesting albums. Ably aided by a bevy of tones - from Shaan, Kunal, Adnan Sami, KK, Revanth to Geetha Madhuri and others, he delivers a blusterous album.
Balaji, a relatively new lyricist, shows imagination. Chandrabose writes but one song.
Artist: Kunal Ganjiwala
An album cannot ask for a better dekko opening. Chakri's beats make you upbeat, while Kunal Ganjiwala's peppy voice lends the songs maturity necessitated by the lyrics.
Artists: Geetha Madhuri, Deepthi Chari, Aishwarya
The throwback to a Bollywood item number is obvious. However, Geetha Madhuri and Co vocals make Maa Peddakka oomphalicious. The doubles entendres are a bit appalling though.
Artists: Adnan Sami, Mamata Sarma
Chakri's tunes give the hero ample opportunity to showcase his dancing talent. The song takes a delightful turn in tenor at a point. Adnan Sami's voice is refreshing.
The breezy romantic song is promising and lively. Revanth's youthful vocals smacks of chirpiness. The lyrics draw from various songs from the yesteryears. Nonetheless, it deserves many listens.
Artists: Hemachandra, Uma Neha
This energetic number is a bit hackneyed. Listen it for Uma Neha's vocals that border on the naughty.
Chakri's instrumentation is interesting. Depth inheres in KK's voice. Balaji's lyrics keep the feel modest and the wordings are measured. The song's poetic touch is a breeze.
Makes for a soothing listen. Shaan renders the song with gusto and yet he brings the brilliance of minimalism. This is a kind of song which you might not have expected from Chakri, but the music director more than dazzles.
