The return of Jr. Gulzar Khan!   Leave a comment

Actor, Director, producer, screenplay writer, singer, and lyricist: The fantabulous Prem is back with a vengeance! And this time I thank god that he has finally redeemed himself of loss over his overwhelming, visionary film-making instincts. Instead, he has consoled himself and for his new movie, has borrowed ideas from the critically-acclaimed Tamil movie: Subramaniapuram (Sasikumar’s Debut film).

Prem wanted to release the film with just the title “Adda’ as he felt the title matched the content of the remake film. However “Adda” title was registered to the other director B.K Srinivas and after much controversy; he had to settle for the title ‘Prem Adda’. It stars Murali Krishna, Kriti Kharbanda and the great Prem himself in the lead roles. It is directed by Mahesh Babu and Music is from V. Harikrishna.

A Brief Music Review:

Adda Boys of Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics: Tushar Ranganath
The opening sequence profoundly bears resemblance to Jackie’s title song. Adda Boys is distinctive; characteristic of Prem’s initiative of introducing the characters to the audience. Ah! How typical and boring!

Badigege of Prem, Shreya Ghoshal, Lyrics: Prem
I guess, Prem is a devout Lord Shiva bhakt. He has consistently written lyrics on Bhang lord. This number is all about Seeking God’s help in midst of turmoil in which Prem’s tone of voice is pathetic and Shreya on the other hand is flawless.

Basanthi of Priya Darshini, V.Harikrishna, Lrycis: Yograj Bhat
Ah! Yograj Bhat in Action and he comes up with yet another hilarious line: ಅಕ್ಕ ಸೆರಗಿಗೆ  ಹಾಕ್ಕೊಳ್ರಿ  ಗುಂಡು  ಪಿನ್ನು :P
Inspired by Veeru’s epitomized dialogue “Basanti inn kutto ke samne mat nachna” (Sholay), Basanthi is an item number sung by music director himself and Again, Basanthi- The single sevanthi bears a stark resemblance to harikrishnas previous jaunts with other movies.

Kalli Ivallu of Sonu Nigam, Shreya Goshal, Lyrics: V. Nagendra Prasad
Kalli Ivallu is the only song retained from the original Subramaniapuram. It is probably the only decent number and that is nowhere near to the magical Kangal Irandal. Archetypal; Nigam, Shreya are wonderful.

Melkote Hudugi of Kailash Kher, Raju Talikote, Anuradha Bhat, Lyrics: Malavalli Sai Krishna
Melkote Hudugi is indeed one of the poli-est songs that I have listened to. Prem wanted Sunny Leone for the special number, but he couldn’t, Therefore he offered Melkote Hudugi role to British model – Scarlett Wilson (shanghai). Kailash Kher in typical folkish voice has done a marvelous job. Also, Raju thalikote ‘s rustic north Karnataka dialogues adds more jizz to the item number.
Some excerpts:
ಲೇ ಪಿತ್ತ್ಹರ್ ಪಿಲ್ಲಿ ಮಗನ …ನಿಮ್ಮವನ ಅಲ್ಲೋ ಯಪ್ಪಾ.. ಯೌವನ.. ಯೌವನಾ…
ಲೇ ನಿದ್ದಿ ಗಂನಾಗ್ ಹುಟ್ಟಿದ ನನ್ ಮಗನ.. ಸತ್ಯನಶಾಗ್… ಹೋಗಲೇ…
ಅಬಬಬಬ…. ನಿಗರಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವನು ಅಲ್ಲೋ…ಲೇ .. ನಿದಿರಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವನು….

Overall, Prem Adda’s is a typical music album that reflects Prem’s unadulterated mediocrity. However, it contains very small traces of genuineness, thanks to the item numbers.

My picks:
Basanthi, Melkote Hudugi :P
