Chords & Notes
Ee Abbayi Chaala Manchodu... M.M.Keeravani... Aditya... Rs.38
WITH O sari nee cheyye thaaki already on top of the charts, the music for this `typical Ravi Teja' movie is all set to dominate the musical minds for the next few weeks. And it is S.P. Balasubrahmanyam and Chitra who do the honours for this sensational number. M.M. Keeravani has his stamp firmly on the track - innovative and captivating.
What follows is sheer melody with each number standing out for it, uniqueness and feel-good mood. A definite buy if you are into collecting Telugu music tracks.
Naga... Vidyasagar... Aditya Music... Rs.38
VERY YOUTHFUL and `keeping in times' mood, Vidyasagar scores this music with elan. The tape opens with Entha Chinna Muddu the kind of lyrics actor NTR Jr. seems to be enjoying in all his movies. There is Mecarina.. Mecarina... sung by Devan and Soumya - though good on the ears, one cannot help wish for the selection of different lyrics. Good ole Mano sings Nayudori Pilla with his usual gusto. On side B, Oka Konte Pillane though score high on music falls short of lyrical sense.
A borrowed tune from the old Paathalabhairavi, in between makes no sense.
Why this repeated NTR hangover for NTR Jr. movies? The other tunes are just fine, will click with regular listeners anyway.
Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin dekha hai... Nikhil-Vinay... T-Series... Rs. 55
FOR THIS film director Anubhav Sinha teams up again with composers Nikhil Vinay after his maiden venture Tum Bin. Priyanshu is cast yet again in this movie.
Like in his earlier film, this one has as many songs. The musical effort is nothing to rave about.
The pick of the album is Aisi aankhein nahin dekin sung by ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh and Asha Bhonsle.
It is in the `ghazal' genre like Jagjit Singh's number in Tum Bin.
A melodious one, it is worth listening to. The title song is perhaps the next number, one can listen to.
The lyrics of Baba ki rani hoon is pedestrian and the song is a sentimental one.
Sajna Main Haari is one of those Punjabi judaai (separation) numbers heard in films sung by Harshdeep.
For a change one can hear Alisha croon in a film. Her Ishq to jaadoo hai with Sonu Nigam and her solo Dil gaya kaam se are peppy songs.
Sweet memories... Instrumental... Venus...
Close to heart...
THIS SERIES features love songs.
Thematically sub titled (the first two albums included songs sung by the doyens Mohd. Rafi and Kishore Kumar - named after the songs sung by them) the series also includes other songs sung in different films down the decades.
The very idea of compiling these albums is questionable in terms of their viability - why would anyone want to listen to instrumental versions of film songs when they can listen to the songs themselves.
Moreover, the selection itself is arbitrary. They may not be universal favourites.
At the most one can give these a hearing if you don't have anything else to do.
