Mallelatheeramlo Sirimallepuvvu (Music review), Telugu – Pavan Kumar
Nithya Santhoshini and Lipsika sing Matakandani and Pilla galula almost like they’re praying, but, for these songs’ deep and exquisite tunes, it’s wonderfully appropriate. Ditto with Pranavi in Nee needana – an old fashioned melody with veena galore, but with a pleasant, feathery tune. Karunya – the only credited male singer – breezes through the short, ambient Alaa chandamaamanai, even as the theme pieces are resonant and very listenable. The soundtrack’s best is Kranthi’s Mabbulu kurise, that sounds like good old Ilayaraja-style use of Keeravani raaga! Pavan Kumar bucks the trend and makes a dramatically different debut in Mallelatheeramlo Sirimallepuvvu.
