Music review: Haage Summane (Kannada – Mano Murthy)
Odi bandenu harks back to Mungaru Male’s formula and is merely soporific, while Naanenu nambodilla is straight out of a 80s Hindi film – terribly outdated. Sonu’s title song works with its charming, hummable tune. Haadonave is crude and annoying, but despite the silly rhythm and conventional accordion, Oorella koogi has an innocent, likeable ring to it, accentuated by Keshav Prasad and Supriya’s vocals. Haage Summane was expected to have damn good music thanks to Preetham Gubbi and Mano Murthy’s association. Beyond taking a memorable phrase from their earlier hit and two worthwhile tracks, the combo doesn’t work this time.
