Okka Ammayi Thappa
Mickey changes his style
Monday, May 9, 2016 • Telugu Comments

Mickey's third album in the last one week (the other two being 'A Aa' and 'Brahmotsavam'), 'Okka Ammayi Thappa' sees him change his style.  Lyrics are by Sri Sasi Jyothsna, Sri Mani, and Dr. Rama Linga Sharma.  Ramya Behara, Abhay Jodhpurkar (who has a song each in 'A Aa' and 'Brahmotsavam'), Haricharan, Adithya, Karthik, Sri Krishna are the singers.

Kottha Kathaley

Artist: Ramya Behara
Lyricist: Sri Sasi Jyothsna

The song is soothing on ears, as any soft Mickey melody would be.  The short ditty evokes a poetic feeling.  Sri Sasi Jyothsna's lyrics give us an introduction of what is in store.  They add to the mellifluous rhythm of the number.  Ramya Behara has a voice that sounds tender and child-like, something that helps the song.  Mickey does a fine job with instrumentation.

Kaav Kaav

Artists: Abhay Jodhpurkar, Haricharan
Lyricist: Sri Sasi Jyothsna

This is again a song shorter than normal.  Sri Sasi Jyothsna's lyrics are character-based.  They are in the mould of exhortation.  Lines like 'Life chinna kagitham, chesuko santhakam' can come out only from a hero, as also those related to the struggle to make the ends meet and the clarion call to become ones hero.  A marked Kollywoodish flavour is writ large.  The singers ensure that the song sounds as down-to-earth as possible.  Quite unlike Mickey.

Yegireney Yegireney

Artists: Abhay Jodhpurkar, Ramya Behara
Lyricist: Sri Mani

Rendered to a heart-touching effect by Abhay and Ramya Behara, the song doesn't come with the usual chorusing and ragas that Mickey is known for.  Sri Mani is pretty noted for interspersing English language words, but this one is quite an exception.  All in all, this one is rooted in duets of the '90s era.  The invocation of characters from the epics and Puranas is a case in point.  The love birds revel in a miracle that's unfolding in their lives.  It's a celebration of the miraculousness of love.

Sarihaddu Lopala

Artist: Adithya
Lyricist: Sri Sasi Jyothsna

This one is Mickey's most promising song of the album.  Intense in its tone, the story-based number has lyrics written by Jyothsna.  Lines like 'sarikottha yuddham' hint at a battle that the protagonist has with himself.  What is the poignant man trying to convey something in silence?  Lines like 'I am not your enemy' (translation) mean that there is a suspense element.  Adithya's vocals are refreshing.  He has the earnestness to pull off this song.

Dhruvam Dhruvam

Artists: Karthik, Sri Krishna
Lyricist: Dr. Rama Linga Sharma

The song sounds more like an angry speech.  Rama Linga Sharma attempts at being a conscience-keeper who tries to awaken the fanatics to the true spirit of Religion.  The religion of humanism is juxtaposed against the cult of death.  Karthik and Sri Krishna render the song energetically and earnestly.  On the flip side, Mickey takes upon the mantle of anyone but himself.

Verdict: This hardly 14-minute-long article comes with songs belonging to different genres.  'Sarihaddu Lopala' stands out for its lyrical quality, while 'Yegireney Yegireney' is a duet to watch out for.

Rating: 3/5
