1. Bharat Ane Nenu - David Simon
DSP has churned out an inspirational title track that is sure to top the charts for a long time. With a constant rhythm and minimal orchestration, this number scores high on the political quotient. Ramajogayya Sastry's lyrics reflect on the hero's political motives, aims, goals and responsibilities. David Simon's vocals are apt for the slickness that the song requires. Though a bit lengthy, it can play out well along with the visuals.
2. I Don't Know - Farhan Akhtar
This peppy number has a foot-tapping rhythm and a tune that is instantly catchy. DSP's stamp is all over it. He spices up the song with some brilliant guitar strums and saxophone in the interludes. The song also marks the debut of Farhan Akhtar in Tollywood. He croons like a pro and his Telugu pronunciation is flawless. The overall packaging of the track makes it a chartbuster material.
3. Vachchadaiyo Saamy - Kailash Kher, Divya Kumar
Right from the word go, this song veers the listeners into a celebratory mood. Ramajogayya Sastry's political lyrics are sure to leave an emotional impact on the screen, coupled with Mahesh Babu's dance steps. Kailash Kher's vocals are perfect for the mood of the number, while Divya Kumar emotes well in the charanams. There's nothing new in the tune. Just a stereotypical DSP template.
4. Ide Kalala Vunnadhe - Andrea Jeremiah
DSP continues the commercial mood of the album with yet another racy number. But this time it is a refreshing love song that doesn't have any political intentions. With some peppy beats and hard rock orchestration, DSP peps up the romantic mood by throwing in some gentle piano notes and lovely humming in the first interlude and rockstar electronic guitar strums in the second interlude. However, the heroine of the song is Andrea Jeremiah. She croons with elan and is the perfect singer for this track. Highlight of the album!
5. O Vasumathi - Yazin Nizar, Rita
Finally, DSP wraps up the album with a quintessential romantic duet. The song has a simplistic tune that hooks on to you instantly. In a few days, this song might be fighting for a place in the charts. Though DSP repeats his love song template, it is the vocals of Yazin Nizar and Rita that weave magic. A special mention for the veena bit in the second interlude which continues into the second charanam. Another winner!
