The missing nativity
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 • Telugu Comments

For a debutante, Raghava Lawrence does a fair job.  Two of the songs (Keka and Orinayano) do not come with Telugu nativity though.  Google song could have been done away with altogether and replaced by a solo song for Prabhas.

Ramajogayya Sastry doesn't experiment with words and dishes out so-so lines.

The singers are there to give succour amid the din in two numbers.

Keka    Listen here

Artists: Llyod Paul, Satyan
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

The song sounds candyfloss and doesn't fit into the film's 'rebellious' ring as well as Prabhas' image.  Ramajogayya Sastry's writes his kind of lyrics.  Larencce's instrumentation and tuning are a throwback to boisterous Tamil-style music of the early 2000s.  A song of this genre doesn't suit to be the first song in a much-awaited album.

Deepali   Listen here

Artists: Karthik, Priya Hemesh, Divya
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

The lyrics speak of Deepali's (whoever it is) nature.  Soothing and melodious, the stanzas sound a bit like a song from Karthik Raja's Tuneega Tuneega.  An enjoyable number, it stands out for Karthik's and Priya Hemesh's mellifluous vocals.

Google   Listen here

Artists: Andrea, Sravana Bhargavi
Lyricist: Bhaskarabhatla

More noisy than voluptuous, the lyrics are lost in the melee of instrumentation.  Bhaskarabhatla seems to have done a good job.  Andrea and Shravana Bhargavi shin through a number which is unabashedly inspired by a few of Bollywood club numbers from the yore.  Beyond a point, you fail to understand what the song is all about.

Orinayano   Listen here

Artists: Malathi, Vijay Prakash
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

Was the duet written to be sung by Kanchana?  Tamil audience would definitely not find it out-of-sync, but it is definitely experimental to go for a song of this kind for a superstar like Prabhas.  It will be interestingly to see where song comes in the film.  Sastry's lyrics have a familiar ring.  Malathi and Vijay Prakash do their best job.

Excellent Nee Figure (Remix)   Listen here

Artist: Nakash
Lyricist: Ramajogayya Sastry

A thorough rehash of the Keka number, the song is rendered effectively by Nakash.  The tuning is typically remix.
