Andhra Pori Music Review

The album of Andhra Pori is a blend of different genres, much like the title, which itself is a medley.  Music is by Josyabhatla and the lyrics are by a range of lyricists.  If Suddala Shok Teja's song opens the number with a huge bang, the mood is carried forward by Krishna Madineni, Ramajogayya Sastry, Kittu Vissapragada, Nanda Kishore.

Sweekar Agasti, Hema Chandra, Pranavi, Kalpana, Amruta Varshini, Sai Kiran and Balaji are the good crooners.


Artist: Sweekar Agasti
Lyricist: Suddala Ashok Teja

This one is perhaps one of the most rhyming of Suddala Ashok Teja's songs. The lingo smacks of the local slang.  If the rhymes are not enough, Sweekar Agasti's very rooted vocals are there to lend the song required authenticity.  Josyabhatla's music is electrifying for this number.

Ye Kaviki

Artists: Hema Chandra, Pranavi
Lyricist: Krishna Madineni

The lilting music is enough to catapult the song to the chartbusters, never mind the sense of deja vu.  The poetic lyrics are romantic and laced with a literary touch.  Krishna Madineni must be credited with coming up with a meaning-studded number.  Hema Chandra and Pranavi render the mellifluous number in their own style.


Artist: Kalpana
Lyricist: Kittu Vissapragada

Josyabhatla's 'daruvu' is enjoyable, so also Kalpana's excellent vocals.  This song could be some number from an EVV Sathyanarayan film starring the best item girl around.  However, as the song progresses, one feels there is more than one genre involved and the conceptualization is not straightforward.  Kittu Vissapragada's celebratory lyrics are, again, rooted in the rural.  All in all, this one is foot-tapping music, jamboree-filled lyrics and all.

Andhra Pori

Artists: Amruta Varshini, Sai Kiran
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

Amruta Varshini and Sai Kiran render the song written by Ramajogayya Sastry in a most natural way.  The tune is good and takes several shades to bring out the different moods.  The lyricist wears the thinking cap and writes lyrics that are light-veined.  It is again a creative play of words and metaphors.  'Mohabbat lo moonchave pyaari Godari..' and such lines bear testimony to the writer's play with ideas.

Ye Charitha

Artists: Hemachandra
Lyricist: Chakravarthula

The melancholic mood is suffused with profound lyrics.  Surely, the concept is good enough to inspire lyrics laced with non-obvious meaning.  Hemachandra's rendition is at its best here.  The tuning is traditional and cinematic rolled into one.  The number is sure to be as good as the first number in terms of the quality, although it is the latter which will have greater mass appeal.  All in all, 'Ye Charitha' is the one and only sad number and is a piece de resistance.


Artist: Balaji
Lyricist: Nanda Kishore

The song mirrors the culture of the rural and rustic quite well.  It also mirrors the characters and in that the concept is noteworthy.  The playful mood of the song is because of the music and Balaji's vocals.  Nanda Kishore shows spark in penning creative lyrics.

Verdict: An album with a mix of many genres, this one surely has a decent shelf life.

Rating: 3.25/5
