Orange (Music review), Telugu – Harris Jayaraj
Oola olala moves predictably, but it’s overriding pleasantness, thanks largely to Karunya’s infectious vocals, helps. Karthik and Naresh Iyer breeze through Chilipiga and Nenu nuvvantu; good old tune-smithing by Harris – gorgeous melodies with simple, nuanced arrangements in both, particularly the latter. Vijay Prakash sounds like Devi Sri Prasad in the joyous Hello ramante – that premeditated style gets repetitive here, while O range, with Benny Dayal, follows suit and sounds worn-out. Rooba rooba brings back the album’s soul – Shail’s expressive vocals and ambient arrangements sit well atop the charming tune. Harris’ return, after an year, seems deliberately safe.
