Shailaja Reddy Alludu Audio Review
Shailaja Reddy Alludu is an upcoming family entertainer starring Naga Chaitanya, Anu Emmanuel and Ramya Krishna in lead roles. Music for the film is composed by Gopi Sundar who has gained much appreciation for his melodious numbers off late.
The trendy album begins with Anu Baby sung by Anudeep Dev with great vigor and fun. The funky electric guitar and bass guitar is quite enjoyable to hear but the lyrics by Krishna Kanth does the job quite well for this song. The usage of 80s blues sound fusing with contemporary feel is quite impressive. The phrase “ Ego ni Indhanamalle Vaadalamma Bhama” is something new and interesting to hear. While the song begins as an eve teasing number initially, it gets to a life lesson about love and relationships in the charanam.
Shailaja Reddy Alludu Choode is a typical title number with a Telangana folk number sung by Satyavathi. The usage of harmonium with latest sounds like bass guitar and sequencing is done quite well. The raaga Kaapi is used to the best possible way by the composer. The lyrics tickle a funny bone which speaks about a guy who is stuck between prospective mother in law and girlfriend. The song will definietly gain much appeal with the masses.
Sid Sriram who has gained much appreciation for his Inka Inka Inkem in Geetha Govindam which was also composed by Gopi Sundar arrives again with a beautiful solo Egire Egire now, The presence of ghatam is wonderful and the string section is effortlessly fused with trance beats. Krishna Kanth’s sublime lyrics are quite appealing and pleasant to hear. The flute in the first interlude is quite melodious and beautiful. Lipsika does a brilliant job with her sweet singing but has an irresistible resemblance to Chinmayi’s voice.
Pelli Pandiri is an out and out wedding song sung by Vijay Yesudas penned by the legendary Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry. The song surprisingly speaks about the importance of bonding and wedding system in India. The phrases like “Mangala Vaadyam Moge Samayana.. Chinadara Vandaralendukandi” beautifully speaks about how to have a harmonious wedding with less disturbances. The breathless style of singing is effortlessly done by Vijay Yesudas.
The finale occurs with Thanu Vethikina – a female solo sung by Satya Yamini and this song is brilliantly composed by raaga Madhyamavati. It has been a while this auspicious raaga is used for a romantic number and Gopi Sundar does it in style. Sitarama Sastry garu does magic once again with phrases like “Pogaranuko.. Tagadanuko..Sahaja Gunaalivi” used in great ease.
Shailaja Reddy Alludu is a breezy album with melodious songs taking over the step quite effortlessly!
