Ramayya Vasthavayya (Music review), Telugu – Thaman
Jabili nuvve lives up to the heavy promo hype! Ranjith is superb in this breezy, rhythmic melody, with Thaman acing the chorus and lilting orchestration! Pandaga chesko sounds distinctly like a Devi Sri Prasad track, and has interesting carnatic mandolin and constant background guitar playing to good effect. Idhi ranarangam is bombastic and templatized, while Kurrayeedu sees Thaman using the Devi Sri format again. Neneppudaina‘s pathos is too sappy, but the album closes in true Andhra masala-style with the rocking O Lailaa, as Rahul rules over the catchy track! Thaman seems to be getting as predictable as Devi Sri Prasad.
