Music review: Male Barali Manju Irali (Kannada – Mano Murthy)
Yeno agide and Ondu ninna are painfully 90s Anu Malik material. Even Aadesh Srivastava! What are they doing in Mano Murthy’s repertoire? Gelathi neenu may be using the ever-dependable Sonu-Shreya combination but the tune has lost its dependability long back, since it has been over-used by Mano anyway. The title song is an embarrassing string of silly English words amidst minimal Kannada while Ondsala ondu is no better despite Kunal’s exuberant vocals. Vidayada veleyalli is pathetic pathos while Jaga jagiso is atrociously tuneless. The short bhajan Vijayambike serves to showcase Manasi’s singing skills. Mano Murthy’s music is woefully inadequate here!
