A Krishna Kumar musical

'Yatra', the biopic on YS Rajasekhar Reddy, has music by Krishna Kumar (also called K).  Its first single is out on Mango Music.  Here is the review.

Rajanna Ninnapagalara

Singer: Vandemataram Srinivas
Lyricist: Sirivennela Sitaramasastri

In composing the song, music director K takes inspiration from folk songs, cine music of the 1990s and some recent influences in the world of music.  Sirivennela's lyrics deify YSR as an alleged God who can change the fate of the poor forever.  Srinivas' voice is filled with melodrama, much like the flavour of the average song.

Marugainaava Rajanna

Singer: Penchal Das
Lyricist: Penchal Das

The lyrics melancholically recall the demise of YSR in an air crash in 2009.  The references to the late CM's smile and walking demeanour have a humanizing impact.  'Raccha Banda', an initiative by YSR to connect with the public, is also referred to because it's while leaving for an RB meet-up that he died.  Music-wise, the song comes with stock ragas. Penchal Das's voice is an extension of his emotional 'Aravindha Sametha' work.  It wouldn't be laughable to say that the shaky voice is too much to take here.
