Entertains with catchy tunes

Manchu Manoj's films have always had a musical output that is peculiarly different from others.  Potugadu is on the same lines, though this time the quality is a notch higher.

A range of lyricists and singers make it a good album.

Pyar Mein Padipoya    Listen here

Artists: Indu Nagaraj, Manchu Manoj
Lyricist: Bhasha Sri

All songs need not entertain us by virtue of musical quality or lyrical flourish.  By tweaking with language here and there, a song can make an impact.  This one by Achu is one such peculiar number.  Bhasha Sri's irreverent language is a good fit.  Indu Nagaraj's unconventional, if not offbeat, voice is good.  Manoj makes a mark with his vocals.

Devatha   Listen here

Artist: Karthik
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

Karthik's emotion-filled vocals are a big plus.  Ramajogayya Sastry attempts a heart-tugging lyrical output and passes muster, for he only rehashes the old themes.  Achu's instrumentation is not innovative, but the tune is catchy.

Bujji Pilla   Listen here

Artist: Silambarasan
Lyricists: Achu, Manchu Manoj, Ramajogayya Sastry

This song proves what a melange of creators can achieve together.  The lyrics are a treat to ears for sure.  The wordings remind us of the sensational Kolaveri Di, though the irreverence is not high on content.  Silambarasan's excellent vocals make us want to join him in crooning.  A clap-worthy attempt by Achu and Co.

Super Figure   Listen here

Artists: Geetha Madhuri, Hemachandra
Lyricists: Manchu Manoj

The song will surely remind of a zillion such crazy numbers!  Quite a disappointment actually, considering that the crooners are Geetha Madhuri and Hemachandra.  Low on musical quality, the mild succor is Manoj's lyrics, which, for a demanding listener, fall short of content.

Bindaas   Listen here

Artist: Tippu
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

Tippu's booming voice deserves a pat.  Ramajogayya Sastry's experimentation works, once again.  Everytime 'Govindaa' is chorused, one likes it.  If the picturisation is good, nothing will stop it from becoming a great hall-time hit.

Potugaadu (Theme)   Listen here

Artist: Geetha Madhuri
Lyricists: Geetha Madhuri, Manchu Manoj

The theme song is eminently forgettable, to say the least.  The song could entertain us on screen, with good choreography thrown in.

Love (Theme)   Listen here

Artist: Achu

A soothing musical delivery, the more than 2 minutes output passes muster.

Action The Distraction   Listen here

Artist: Achu

The music is intense and is intertwined with a sloka-like vocals.  Achu gets the instrumentation alright.

Potugadu Mashup   Listen here

Artist: Achu

Nothing much to write home about.  It is a regular remix with more pretense than substance.
