Cast: Ramcharan, Samantha Akkineni, Aadhi Pinisetty, Jagapathi Babu
Music director: Devi Sri Prasad
When you have a commercial potboiler releasing with some big names in it, the music is ought to be a chartbuster. With Devi Sri Prasad roped in as the music director of this highly-expected movie, the songs have also raised the expectations of music lovers. Let's see if they match up to the expectations.
1. Yentha Sakkagunnave - Devi Sri Prasad
The album kickstarts with a cheeky romantic number that is an instant winner. Devi Sri Prasad yields the megaphone with ease. The accompanying chorus amplify the lovable mood of the number. With minimal orchestration and a foot-tapping rhythm, this beautiful song is sure to tug at your heartstrings. The lilting guitar strums in the second interlude elevates the song to another level. Chandra Bose's lyrics compare the beauty of the leading lady with that of nature. A chartbuster!
2. Ranga Ranga Rangasthalaana - Rahul Sipligunj
Here comes a mass number with all the rustic folk elements in it. It is a crowd-puller that is sure to bring in masses of people to the theaters. With highly energetic beats and little orchestration, this song has more scope to stay on the charts for a long time. Rahul Sipligunj's effortless singing acts like icing on the cake. A definite chartbuster!
3. Rangamma Mangamma - MM Manasi
Another catchy folk number that is high on love and cheesiness. With its simplistic tune, Devi Sri Prasad scores high with this composition. Though there is minimal orchestration, the flute sections in the first interlude make for a pleasant listen. However, the heroine of the song is MM Manasi. Her booming voice and playful modulations are the best amplifiers in the number. The high-energetic beats in the second interlude and towards the end are sure to make the audience dance to them. Instant winner!
4. Aa Gattununtaava - Shiva Naagulu
DSP continues his mass mode with this number too. This dance song is sure to find a place in many dance reality shows in the upcoming days. Though there is nothing new in the composition, Shiva Naagulu's flawless rendition along with the chorus make it a passable listen. Lyrics by Chandra Bose are top-class here. This song might do well with the visuals and Ramcharan's dance moves will be much spoken about.
5. Jigelu Rani - Rela Kumar, Ganta Venkata Lakshmi
How can a DSP album be without an item number? This number is sure to scorch the theaters. Especially Ramcharan and Pooja Hegde's dance moves would make it a remarkable number. However, it is worth only a single listen and doesn't have the potential to stay in your playlists, if you aren't a die-hard fan of item numbers. The vocals of Rela Kumar and Ganta Venkata Lakshmi are the only saving factors in an otherwise average song.
DSP makes a dashing comeback with the classy album which is replete with numbers that would appeal to the masses. The soundtrack has just a couple of misses which are quite forgettable. This mass album is sure to become a chartbuster!
