Taxiwaala audio review
TaxiWaala is an upcoming entertainer starring Vijay Devarakonda,Priyanka Jawalkar and Malavika Nair in lead roles. Music for the film is composed by Jakes Bejoy and produced by the popular banner UV creations.
The album begins on a funky note with Ladies and Gentlemen by the youthful singer Hemachandra and penned Krishna Kanth. The song has refreshing beats with peculiar usage of bass guitar- which has been a rare find these days in Telugu film songs. The chord progression is interesting with the lyrics speaking about hope and positivity in the times of despair. The song also speaks about the luck factor which plays a major role in everyone’s life. The usage of electric guitar is also fun and frolic.
Maate Vinadhuga already became popular with Sid Sriram’s majestic vocals. He has proven to be a lucky mascot for hero Vijay Devarakonda and bound to score another hit after Inkem Inkem in the former’s earlier flick Geetha Govindam, the phrase “Maate vinadhuga..vegam digadhuga” is quite impressive and Krishna Kanth strikes again with his soulful lyrics. The usage of sitar in the interlude is the highlight of the song in the midst of techno beats. The orchestration is rich and also has a contemporary feel associated with it.
Some peppiness adds to the album with Crazy Car with Jazzy drums and Spanish styled guitar strumming. Revanth Kumar does a commendable job with his swift vocals and gives the song a nostalgic appeal. The lyrics by Krishna Kanth are challenging because of the scenario in which the composition is done. After Chalti Kaa Naam Gaadi from Chettu Kindha Pleader, here is another song which speaks about a troublesome car and the problems it gives in a funny way. The line “Shikaru anna maata vinna..bhukaarocchi vanukuthunna” is hilarious and also entertaining.
The album hits a fitting finale with melancholic number Neeve Neeve composed in minor scale and sung brilliantly by Shreya Ghoshal. It has been a while a composer has taken over this scale and Jakes Bejoy does a great job. The tune has peculiar progression and string section stands out unique. The song not just speaks about estrangement but also about many fears and despair in a poetic manner.
Taxi Waala is an outright classy album and Jakes Bejoy strikes a very emotional chord as well.
