A Mickey J Meyer Musical

The first single from 'Sreekaram' is out, on Sony Music South. Here is our review. The other songs will be reviewed as and when they are out.

Bhalegundi Baalaaa

Singers: Penchal Das, Nutana Mohan
Lyricist: Penchal Das

Penchal Das, who was catapulted to fame by 'Aravindha Sametha' (in which he wrote and sang 'Reddamma Thalli'), is back in his elements. This one is much on the lines of his 'Dhaari Choodu' from Nani's 'Krishnarjuna Yuddham'. The shaky voice is a bit unsettling. Once you adjust to that, Das' folksy vibes give you entertainment. Nutana Mohan's additional vocals help. Mickey seems to have been instructed not to tinker too much with a template. And he stuck to it.

Sandalle Sandalle

Singers: Anurag Kulkarni, Mohana Bhogaraju

Lyricist: Sanapati Bharadwaj Patrudu

The song has 'Shatamanam Bhavati' written all over it. Mickey's forte lies in making his tune sound atmospheric when it is celebration time for sons, relatives, or lovers, as the case may be. Anurag Kulkarni's voice seems to come straight out of the Satish Vegesna-powered Sharwanand. Sanapati Bharadwaj Patrudu's lyrics pay a tribute to the village life, including the phenomenon of the tradition of the informal justice system in Indian villages.


Singer: Prudhvi Chandra

Lyricist: Ramajogayya Shastri

The song is an agricultural anthem that comes with mundane lines, not in one language but two languages. The lyricist pulls material from routine WhatsApp forwards and calls them inspirational lines. Prudhvi Chandra's vocals brim with energy, something this otherwise insipid anthem badly needed. Just in case you are inspired by this song to take up farming, be told that it looks all sexy only in the quasi-poetry of Telugu cinema, not in real life.
