Maryada Ramanna
Contrastive Composition
Monday, July 12, 2010 • Telugu Comments

Rajamouli is weaving a different story this time. The director, who has till now delivered action packed movies, has tried his hand in making a comedy movie without violence. Keeravani composes music for the album as he has always been doing for Rajamouli's movies. As it is touted to be a `feel good' movie, Keeravani has offered a unique album that sounds different from conventional compositions.

Ammaye Kitiki Pakanna    Listen here

Artist(s): Karunya, Chaitra
Lyricist: Ananth Sriram

The first track starts off with a pleasant rendition of strings and whistles in the background. Karunya starts the lyrics in this slow song. Ananth Sriram's lyrics are romantic. Keeravani's tune takes you back to the early seventies music. The song has minimal instruments with the lyrics receiving prominence. The fillers are filled with harmony making this song, a pleasure to listen.

Udyogam Oodipoyidi   Listen here

Artist(s): Ranjith
Lyricist: Rama Jhogaya Sastry

This is a funny song yet a pathos song from the hero's point of view because he's deprived of his job. Rama Jogiah Sastry's lyrics are hilarious, especially the last line of every verse saying `Naa Karma Kaalipoyindhi', imagining on-screen expressions of Sunil. The song is evenly paced and will be a pleasure to watch, given Sunil's love for dance and his facial expressions along with Rajamouli's style of presentation. Ranjith has done well and Keeravani's usage of Chorus and his fillers are just about perfect.

Telugammaye   Listen here

Artist(s): MM. Keeravani, Geetha Madhuri
Lyricist: Ananth Sriram

`Telugammaye .' reminds you of yet another old vintage song especially with Keeravani singing it. The song's music is pleasing no doubt with the tempo being slow for the sub verses and fast for the main verses. The instruments take you back in time. The song would have mostly been shot in a rural milieu. Our guesses will be right when the movie releases later this July.

Raaye Raaye   Listen here

Artist(s): Raghu Kunche, Geetha Madhuri
Lyricist: Chaitanya Prasad

The mass number for the album! `Raaye Raaye' has all the basic ingredients to make it a mass folk song. Chaitanya's lyrics, Keeravani's folk beats and the tempo all make it the quintessential mass song. It would be a pleasure to see Sunil dance for a mass folk song. Raghu Kunche has proved his mettle with folk songs before. His own composition `Ramanamma' in `Bumper Offer' stands testimony. He has sung this song brilliantly whilst delivering the lyrics clearly alongside budding singer Geetha Madhuri.

Parugullu Tiye   Listen here

Artist(s): SP. Balasubramaniam
Lyricist: Seetha Rama Shastry

`Parugullu Ti.' sounds like a background score with the magical voice of SP Balasubramaniam. Extraordinary composition by Keeravani making the song intense to listen and it surely would be providing the same intense on screen. The beats in the background and the other instruments used all add to the credits of the song. The chorus is also an important ingredient in this song. Listen to it and try getting a hint from Seetha Rama Sastry's lyrics of what this song leads to.

M M Keeravani's Musical Palette

Veteran music director Keeravani has a vast experience of scoring music for varied scripts. For a comic movie like `Maryada Ramanna', he has offered diverse tunes from his rich musical palette. The first and the last song of the album will be noticed for their tunes. Yet another good job from the musical king M M Keeravani.
