ಲೂಸಿಯ – ಮಾಯೆಯೊಳಗೋ ? ಅಮಲಿನೋಳಗೋ ?   Leave a comment

First Kannada feature film to be completely Crowd Funded!  Yes, that’s Lucia, a film directed by Pawan Kumar, disciple of Mr. Yograj Bhatt and has everything new at its place. It stars Satish Neenasam and Shruthi Hariharan in the lead. The project is a part of a model, a platform on which film makers and audience collaborate together in bringing out good and most importantly sensible Kannada film. Amazingly, it is an open source movie that supposedly has ascendancy on all sections of movie-making (which is evident) and Pawan says, its chief aim is to bring back the lost “dignity in the Kannada films”.

The audio for this upcoming movie is from Mysore based rookie Poornachandra Tejaswi, and officially has 7 songs, lyrics for two inquiring songs are penned by Yograj Bhat , Raghu Shashtry and for the rest, Poornachandra Tejaswi himself. A brief review

Lucia1

Helu Shiva of Naveen Sajju, Rakshith Nagarle, Yograj Bhat, Lyrics: Yograj Bhat
Aw! Yograj Bhatt and his Questions for God, and his as-is analysis of conventional verve. Check out the lyrics!
ತೂತು ಮಡಿಕೆಯಂಥ ಹೃದಯ, ಏಷ್ಟು ಬೀರು ಕುಡಿಬಹುದು ?
ಹೃದಯಕೆ ಇಚ್ಚುಗಾರ್ಡು ಹಚ್ಚಲೇ ನೆನಪು ತುಂಬಾ ಕೆರೆದಾಗ ?
Exorbitantly techno’ed Helu Shiva is a typical song that provides a rapid inside-view to protagonist’s quirky history.

Jamma Jamma, Jamma Jamma (pathos) of Naveen Sajju, Lyrics: Poornachandra Tejaswi
What happens when you encounter a raw singing talent in a local mandya orchestra, who doesn’t know abc’s of playback singing, pack his bags to recording studio, nurture the talent and make him sing a piece which is precisely laid out, the result is Precious!! Naveen Sajju simply makes Jamma jamma a special song which is entrancingly crafted by its architect, both musically, lyrically.

Nee Thoreda of Ananya Bhat, Udith Haritas, Lyrics: Raghu Shashtry
The intro is inspired by kirtanas, philosophical verses of Saint Kanakadasa which is in itself nihilistic, then comes a sense of desolation which naturally is a necessary stage in a broken love affair. Udith is a bit immature at the later stages, however Ananya is just brilliant!

Thinbeda Kammi, of Bappi Blossom, Poornachandra Tejaswi, Arun M C; Thinbeda Kammi Duet of Sangeetha Rajeev, Dr.Nitin Acharya, Sparsha R K , Lyrics : Poornachandra Tejaswi
Indubitably the most popular song of the lot, the lyrics which is again inspired from the ethnic-lingual Chamrajnagar region, has seductive English interludes which are incredibly sung from Mandya-based Bappi Blossom – absolutely fabulous. The duet is included in the album as a part of the marketing drive which was initiated back in 2012.

Yako Barlilla of Naveen Sajju, Lyrics: Poornachandra Tejaswi
I really dunno why Yako Barlilla has a feel of a typical orchestra song albeit the music elements incorporated are from deviant sources (Film reels, Cycle bells, etc), the tempo along with Sajju’s patho tone feels unnatural and probably is the only weak component of the album.

It’s always a challenge to make a movie out from fresh talents and at the moment Anton Ego’s brilliant monologue flashes through my mind “The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends, not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.” I sincerely hope the project becomes a countywide success, a model that restores faith in Kannada cinema.

My Picks:
Nee Thoreda, Jamma Jamma, Thinbeda Kammi

Shivanna romancing Radhika Pandit (RP) !? And the damsel (RP) further justifies “Initially people had doubts about us wooing each other on screen because of the age difference, but I think we look awesome together.”

Duh!!!!! And I was like…
Baby, baby, baby ooooohhhhh
Like baby, baby, baby nooooooo….
Like baby, baby, baby oooooh :D :P

Anyways, Kaddipudi is the sixth film of Suri which stars, Shivrajkumar, Radhika Pandit, Rangayana Raghu, Aindrita Ray. Suri’s movies emphasizes on variants of societal realism and the perks of being in itself, being for itself. During the release of its audio, Suri conveyed that “The songs of this film are unlike any of my previous five films. There is no song which can be termed a ‘hero-introduction’ song or even a ‘duet song’. In Kaddipudi, all the songs are central to the story.” And honestly the five songs of the movie have substance and are unlike typical Sandalwood plastic songs, besides; Kaddipudi is deviant of common misconception that which Kannada songs are normally associated with. For Kaddipudi, V. Harikrishna is the music director and S.Krishna Kumar is the cinematographer.

A Brief Review:

Budu Budukke Malinga of V. Harikrishna, Yograj Bhat, Lyrics: Yograj Bhat

Check out the lyrics! So Freakingly bizzzzarre…

ಬುಡ್ ಬುಡ್ಕೆ ಮಾಲಿಂಗ, ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಸತ್ತೋದಾ..  ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಸತ್ತೋದಾ..
ಹೋಗೋಕೆ ಮುಂಚೇನೇ, ಕಯ್ಯಿಗೆ ಕಡ್ಡಿನಾ ಕೊಟ್ಟ್ ಬುಟ್ಟು ಹೋದಾ..
ಅವ್ನಾ ಬುಡ್ ಬುಡ್ಕೆ ಒಳ್ಗೆ ಈ ಹಾಡು ಮಲ್ಗಿತ್ತು..
ಅವ್ನು ನಮ್ ತಾತ ಅವ್ನು ನಮ್ ತಾತ…
Furthermore, Bhatt adds that this song is incorporated in a Movie where in the main protagonist expresses his views in an arranged-marriage that which turns out to be artificial. I still do not get the logic behind the words!! Nevertheless, Tamatae, Veena interludes are good, which stamps mass-ness to it.

Soundharya Samara of Sonu Nigam, Lyrics: Yograj Bhat

Oh Boy! The lyrics has that ಉನ್ಮಾದ , beauty and the embeddedness which leads to a devastating ethereal experience and it is simply brilliant because of the duality it encloses (It took me a while to finally get it), Terrific Work from Yograj Bhatt who faithfully pays tribute to the mysterious sensuality of the woman. Vani Harikrishna’s soul-stirring aalaap lays an amazing platform for Nigam to display his ever-amazing symphonious skill. For the dance sequence Aindrita Ray will be seen in a classical avatar (Kathak) and I’m eagerly looking forward to it!

Hedarabyadre of Sachchina , Lyrics: Jayanth Kaikini

Totally in love with this song which beautifically radiates pure simplicity, I have to dedicate this song to my grandma who recently passed away, the song simply bears resemblance to what she really was. Unraveling the essence of sharing, caring; the folk song articulates awareness on quality-of-life issues.

Bere Yaro of Vani Harikrishna, Lyrics: Jayanth Kaikini

ಜೀವವೇ ಪ್ರೀತಿಸು… ಜೀವ ಹೋಗುವಂತೇ…
ಸಂತೆಯಾ ಮಧ್ಯವೇ… ಸ್ವಪ್ನ ತಾಗುವಂತೆ…
Just WOW! Terrific composition, the only reaction to this song is that: it would’ve been amazing and would’ve been nothing short of masterful if it were sung by an appropriate person with feminist fervor.

Jinke Bedareruvaga of Priyadarshini, Lyrics: Yograj Bhat

ಎದೆ ಬೀದಿಯಲ್ಲೊಂದು, ತಿಳಿಗಾಳಿ ಬೀಸಿಹುದು…
ಉಸಿರಿಗೋ.. ಮೈಯ್ಯಿಗೋ…

ಕಿವಿಯೂ ಮುಚ್ಚಿರುವಾಗ… ಒಳಗಿಂದ ದನಿಯೊಂದು,
ಮುಂದೇ ಹೋಗೆಂದಾಗ.. ಹೇಗಿರುವೇ ಅಂದಾಗಾ..
ಹರೆಯಕ್ಕೆ ಕಿರಿ ವಯ್ಯಸ್ಸೂ…
ಹುಡಿ ತುಂಬಾ ಹಿಡಿ ಕನಸೂ…
Wow! Tantalizingly seductive, track lengths just 1:20 and Yograj Bhatt with his aesthetic judgment on beauty, bares his soul to which Priyadarshini’s vocals render a fresh feel.

I always thought that the phrase “A song with good lyrics will always be a good song no matter the kind of music that it is quipped with” and Kaddipudi is a prime example, V Harikrishna has not quite experimented with alternative sounds. With tremendous lyrical power, Kaddipudi has undoubtedly very simple tastes which accentuate notions of temporal sensitivity.

My Picks:

Soundharya Samara, Hedarabyadre, Bere Yaro

Andar Zero Baahar bhi Zero!!   Leave a comment

ಕೇಳ್ರಪ್ಪೋ ಕೇಳಿ Vijay Prakash in his latest interview for ‘Andar Bahaar’ said ‘Director –Phannesh’s has got an absolute special story to tell and to proceed with the story, songs are incorporated to assist the same. ಇವು,ಸಿನಿಮಾಕ್ಕೆ ಮುಂಚೆ,ಒಂದು ಅಂಥ ಹಾಡು, ಒಂದು ಇಂಥ ಹಾಡು ಎಂದು ಡಿಸೈಡ್ ಮಾಡಿ, ಕಂಪೋಸ್ ಮಾಡಿದ ಹಾಡುಗಳಲ್ಲ. Muhaha haha ha ha

Well, obviously his metamorphosis into Music director for ‘Andar Bahaar’ is compelling him to be naive and sentimental. ‘AB’ is an action film starring SRK and Parvathi Menon and the album has 5 tracks and just like a typical bollywood/sandalwood album it has An introductory title track, Love song, Patho song and Perky ones which pretty much describes; the navarasas!!!!! :D

A brief review on the album comprising of ಒಂದು ಅಂಥ ಹಾಡು, ಒಂದು ಇಂಥ ಹಾಡು..

AB

Andar Baahar of Vishal Dadalani, Suzanne D’ mello , Lyrics: A.P. Arjun
A typical song for the dude to free his arms, tap his toes, do some bille jean stuff, communicate to the audience that he indeed has five fingers and added to all of these explain what Andar baahar is all about !! check out these lines.. ಬಿರುಗಾಳಿ ಬದುಕಲ್ಲಿ ತಂಗಾಳಿ ಹುಡ್ಕೋದು ಭೂಮಿಲಿ ನಾನ್ ಒಬ್ಬನೇ !!! :D :D ಪ್ಲಸ್ ಇಂಟು ಮೈನಸ್ ಏನು ?I ’m flabbergasted!!  This is Vishal’s and Suzanne’s debut song in Kannada. Undoubtedly, they are fabulous!! However the music’s constructed with references from Bond films and from other reputed DJ’s.

Maleyali Minda of Vijay Prakash, Shreya Goshal , Lryics: Jayanth Kaykini
What an aalaap from Shreya it’s so effective that it makes you feel so vulnerable!!! And again Kaykini’s words effortlessly creates an atmosphere where one can go for scuba diving! Top-notch work from Shreya and Vijay but the music kinda lets you down, has faint traces of ARR’s Mannipaya. However, Konkani interludes are just outstanding. If this was only specific to Shreya , it would’ve been so much better!!

Aase Aase of Karthik, Anuradha Bhat, Lyrics: Kaviraj
A zulu chorus for the interludes!!! I Just don’t understand what’s really wrong with these guys, is it to heighten the senses or to make/sound glossy or pop or shift the screen to Africa and wretchedly resonate that I have these many Aases!?  It really beats me every time…. However Anuradha Bhat does bring some reprieve to a so called pepddddddd-up song.

Koneye Irada of Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics: Jayanth Kaykini
Unquestionably, the intro and the tempo bears resemblance to Tanhayee of Dil Chahta Hai and For a change Kaykini has penned lyrics for a patho track which really disappoints. Mahadevan’s… simply brilliant and effortlessly modulates his voice to intensify SRK’s theatrical anguish.

Neenu Nanna Only Wifu of Chetan, Shamita, Lyrics: Yograj Bhat
Aw.. the archetypal ಪೋಲಿ bhatt and his rants ! Begins impressively with ಆಷಾಡಮಾಸದಲಿ ಬ್ಯಾಡ… ನಿನ್ನ ಸಹವಾಸ…. but doesn’t carry the same tempo and concludes with abysmal ಬಾಥ್ರೂಮಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಮೀಟ್ ಆಗು ನೀನು… ನೀರ್ ಸೌಂಡಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಳ್ಸೋಲ್ಲ ಏನೂ… Typical suntragali beats and this number won’t be featured in the film!! Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles!

From an commercial view point: Vijay Prakash delivers but One can easily bring in references from other south Indian movies and relate to it. Hope he discontinues his efforts to establish himself as a music director and instead, remain being a singer. Endorse Simplicity…

“Sweet Disposition” – ಸಿಂಪಲ್ಲಾಗ್ ಒಂದ್ ಲವ್ ಸ್ಟೋರಿ   1 comment

Peppered with love, incorporated with trendy-catchy, multi-layered dialogues, the promo of Simple aagond Love Story (running close to 9 min!!) made a lot of noise on youtube and social networking sites. Obviously, it had to compile fastidious impression on the audience because it is completely different from all kinds of mundanity, which the kannada commercial cinema normally possess.

The concept for Simple aagond Love Story is from the Rookie director: Suni. Rakshith Shetty of Tuglak fame and Swetha Srivatsa of  Cyber Yugadhol Navayuva Madhura Premakavyam fame, are main protagonists , they are indispensable, integral part of the film. The trailer alone demonstrates their immense acting talents which are pleasantly sensible (both are from theatrical backgrounds). Music is from Bharath B J (rookie again), the film includes 6 soundtracks and the album; 9 some of which contains beautifully-penned lyrics that never fails to impress. Most of the soundtracks begin with an introductory note enclosing immaculate poetic words which add that extra zeal to it.

sols-1

Baanali Badalago, Baanali Badalago (Remix) of Sonu Nigam, Lyrics: Siddu Kodipura
Love song in kannada cinema, get Nigam! This is the mantra for most of the music directors in Kannada industry and honestly now its feels very monotonous but As always, nigam gives his best and The remix is decent, though, it sounds like a mixture of Robert miles-Dj Tiesto.

Karagida Baaninalli of Sowmya Rao ,  Lyrics: Prakash Sinivas
It really took me a while to comprehend the meaning of : ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಉಪಶಮನದ ಮಜಲಿದು…  and then it really struck me in a bad way and at the same time it provided a perspective of verboseness on kannada language.It’s appalling!!
Karagida Baaninalli can be considered as female version of Baanali Badalago, and I state that it is the best song of the album. Sowmya Rao effevervesent vocals and Prakash Sinivas’s excellent lyrics creates a portal which effectively connects, reflects Khushi’s(Swetha Srivatsa) exemplary solicitous emotions.     

Belligge Gymmu of Bharath B J , Lyrics: Suni
Kanglish lyrical work which sheds light on archetypical college dude’s existence before seeking vote of approval … Very.. Very mediocre…

Sereyadanthe Sarasari , Sereyadanthe Sarasari (Instrumental) of Bharath B J, Lyrics: Suni
Bharath B J ; his first movie as music director and lends his voice to three soundtracks in the album! For the fact that movie titles ends with story , -RI , many of the soundtracks are filled with words which supply the same rhythm and consequently one gets worn-out after repeated listening.

Smile Iruvanthe Sarasari : Priyanka , Lyrics: Suni
Another track which brief blurbs on the effects of being in love, it’s a female version of Sereyadanthe Sarasari which surprisingly includes English prefixes.

Nanna Preethi Kusuri : Vijay Prakash , Lyrics: Suni
ಕಟ್ಟಲೇಬೇಕಿದೆ ಗೋರಿ , ಆ ಗೊರಿಗೂ ಒಂದು ಹೆಸರಿಡುವೆ – ಸಿಂಪಲ್ಲಾಗ್ ಒಂದ್ ಲವ್ ಸ್ಟೋರಿ.. ಸಿಂಪಲ್ಲಾಗ್ ಒಂದ್ ಲವ್ ಸ್ಟೋರಿ.. Waaaaaa! Why so serious! Why glorify ಕಣ್ಣಿರಿನ ಸಂಭಾವನೆ  ?! Nevertheless, Vijay Prakash’s fabulous vocals tow melancholy and integrates it with Rock music!

Hale Gujuri Hosa Battery: Bharath B J, Lyrics: Suni
WTF!! Life ಇದು ಪ್ರೀತಿ strawberry, ಕಾರಣ  ಹೃದಯ robbery…. Where do you get such words!! It really pisses me off when one just pens song for the sake of just providing a new outlook and embrace it in the movie to increase the run-time…..And…… wretched singing from Bharath esp when he pronounces straw-berry, batterrrry,  robberrrry , factorrry, bakeeerry… it just feels pathetic!! It’s Just like… Anu malik’s  – dekho baarish ho rahi, Gurukrian’s – kolle nannanne :D :D

All in All soundtracks of Simple aagond Love Story are simple enough to leave mark on Radio charts and it will be widely acknowledged and appreciated.

My Picks: Karagida Baaninalli, Baanali Badalago, Nanna Preethi Kusuri

ಆಲೋಚನೆ, ಆರಾಧನೆ – ರೋಮಿಯೋ (2012)   Leave a comment

How did i miss this!? Thanks to fm radio’s (Courtesy: Rj Rapid Rashmi) , just stumbled upon this song while traveling to office, Needless to say, Shreya’s just fanatasic and Kaviraj’s lryics are exceptional, densely evocative.

ಹಾಡು:  ಆಲೋಚನೆ, ಆರಾಧನೆ , ಸಂಗೀತ: ಅರ್ಜುನ್ ಜನ್ಯ  , ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ : ಕವಿರಾಜ್  , ಗಾಯನ : ಶ್ರೇಯ ಘೋಶಾಲ್

Aalochane

ಆಲೋಚನೆ, ಆರಾಧನೆ.. ಎಲ್ಲ ನಿನ್ದೇನೆ…
ಆಲಾಪನೆ, ಆಕರ್ಷಣೆ.. ಎಲ್ಲ ನೀನೇನೇ..
ನಾವಿಬ್ಬರು ಒಂದಾದರೆ ಖಂಡಿತ..
ಈ ಜೀವನ ಅಲ್ಲಿಂದಲೇ ಅದ್ಬುತ..
ಕನಸಿಗಿಂತ ಸೋಗಸು ನಿನ್ನ ಸನಿಹ..
ಜಗವೇ ಸುಳ್ಳು ನನಗೆ ನಿನ್ನ-ವಿನಹ..
ಯಾರೋ ನನಗೆ ನೀನು..

ಆಲೋಚನೆ, ಆರಾಧನೆ.. ಎಲ್ಲ ನಿನ್ದೇನೆ…
ಆಲಾಪನೆ, ಆಕರ್ಷಣೆ.. ಎಲ್ಲ ನೀನೇನೇ..

ಆದಮೇಲೆ ನಂಗೆ ನಿನ್ನ ಪರಿಚಯ..
ನನ್ನ ಬಾಳು ಆಯಿತಲ್ಲಾ ರಸಮಯ..
ನಿಜದಲಿ.. ನೀನು.. ಮನುಜನೋ… ಗಾಂಧಾರನೋ..
ಸಾಕು ಸಾಕು ಇನ್ನೂ ನಿನ್ನ ಅಭಿನಯ..
ನೋಡಿ ಕೂಡ ನೋಡದಂತೆ ನಡಿದೆಯ..
ಹುಡುಗಿಯ ಹೀಗೆ, ಹೆದರಿಸ ಬೇಡ ಕಣೋ..
ಅಂದು, ನೀನು…. ಆಗಂತುಕ.. ಇಂದು, ನೀನೇ..  ನನ್ನ ಸಖ..
ಕನಸಿಗಿಂತ ಸೋಗಸು ನಿನ್ನ ಸನಿಹ..
ಜಗವೇ ಸುಳ್ಳು ನನಗೆ ನಿನ್ನ-ವಿನಹ..

ತಡೆದರೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ತಡೆಯೇನು ನಾ ನನ್ನನು..
ನಿಂಗೆ ತಾಗಿ ನಿಂತ ವೇಳೆ ತಳಮಳ..
ಸೋನೆ ಸೋಕಿ ಆದ ಹಾಗೆ ಹಸಿ-ನೆಲ..

Ramblings of the dreamy idealist!   Leave a comment

ಈ ಸಿಚುಯೇಸನ್ ತಕ್ಕಾಂಗ್  ಒಂದು ಸಾಂಗ್ ಹೆಲ್ಬಿಡ್ತ್ಹಿನಿ ಕೇಳು:  “ಲಕ್ಕಂಡಿ ಕಡ್ಡಿಪುಡಿ  ಲಕ್ಸ್ಮಿಸನೋ…. ಬಕ್ಸಿಸನೋ…. ಲಂಗು ಲಗಾಮು ಲವಣ ಫಾಕೀರ, ಲಂಗ ದಾವಣಿ ಹಾಕಿರೋ ಸಕೀರ, ದೊಡ್ಡೋರು ಬಿಡಲ್ಲ , ಸಣ್ಣೊರು ಬಗ್ಗಲ್ಲ , ಕಾಲ್ ಕೆಜೆ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ , ಬಾಯಲ್ಲಿಹಾಕೋ ಸುಮ್ನೆ…. ವಾಲಾಡು … ಗೊಂಬೆ ವಾಲಾಡು.. ಬಿಯರ್ ಹಾಕೊಂಡು  ತೇಲಾಡು….” :D

Well, even if you attempt to break it down to the minutest of details to get a hold of the aesthetic implications of the same, you may or may not find the meaning, Preetam (ganesh) in Mungaru male aptly describes it as: ಅರ್ಥಾ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲವ, ಅರ್ಥಾ ಆಗೋದು ಬೇಡ ಬಿಡಿ.. ;)

Yograj Bhat’s idealistic prism always consists of romanticism that is mixed with black humor and Drama is his next venture. It stars Yash, Radhika Pandit, Satish Neenasam, Sindu Loknath, Ambarish, Atul Kulkarni. Yet again, Music is by V. Harikrishna. Lyrics are from Jayanth Kaikini and Yograj Bhat. Drama has 6 Tracks and follows the same pattern of its predecessors (Yograj Bhatt’s preceding films). Once more, it has a dreamy number (for female protagonist) penned by Jayanth Kaikini and a male version of the same written by Yograj Bhat and other tracks contain the usual rambling banter – ಸಂಡೇ ಆದ್ಮೇಲ್ ಮಂಡೇ ಬರ್ತದೆ, ಟೆಂತ್ ಆದರೆ ಪಿ.ಯು ಬರ್ತದೆ, corridor-ಅಲ್ಲೇ ಕಾಲು ಜಾರ್ತದೆ,
ಮುಂದೆ ಹೇಳೋಕೆ ನಾಚಿಕೆ ಆಯ್ತದೆ… ;)

A Brief Music Review:

Bombe Adsonu, Bombe Adsonu (pathos) of V.Harikrishna, Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
Evidently the pathos version is better than its parent which has a breezy, techno-Rap tune which is primed for a reason to explain the nothingness, frailty of life. Below Average lyrics, run-of-the-mill composition and one has to put up with the music director’s dismal signing.

Hambalada Hoovannu of Sunitha Gopuraj, Lyrics: Jayanth Kaykini
A very big lol to the introductory lines of Radhika pandit, Yash. As always, Jayanth Kaykani lyrics; significantly reduces music director’s efforts. It has a brief inclusion of tabala which is a rarity in Harikrishna’s musical-arsneal. Sunitha Gopuraj has more laughter in her tone when she pronounces ಸಂಚಾರಿ, ವ್ಯಾಪಾರಿ, ಇತ್ಯಾದಿ. Nevertheless, it is beautifully sung and Jayanth Kaykini lyrics are just Out of this world! Check out this line: “ಹಿಡಿಯಷ್ಟು ಹೃದಯದಲಿ ಹಿಡಿಸಲಾಗದೆ ಹೋದ ಮೌನವನು ಶ್ರುತಿ ಮಾಡೋ ವ್ಯಾಯಮವೇಕೆ..” Simply Brilliant!!

Drama Hitavachana of Tippu, Radhika Pandit, Satish Neenasam Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
It begins with a wonderful speech of Satish Neenasam, :P and with a progressive rhythm indulges in characteristic othla singing, voice which is again provided by the othla King: Tippu, he is the soul of this number which has typical inane attributes. Pam.. pam,pam,pam pam pam…pam pam pam pam,pam… pam,pam,pam pam pammmmmmmmm… it also has mandya-rap :D of Radhika Pandit, Satish Neenasam. Satish’s efforts are genuine when compared to thumba ordinary/phony rapping of Ms Pandit.

Thundh Haikla Sahavasa of Vijay Prakash, Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
Thundh Haikla Sahavasa is also tagline of the movie. Hilarious!!! :D :D This number prominently introduces to the lifestyle of two main leads Yash, Satish Neenasam and is voiced by immensely talented Vijay prakash, who has rendered it awesomely.

Chendutiya Pakkadali of Sonu Nigam, Lyrics: Yogaraj Bhat
Chendutiya Pakkadaliis theMale version of Hambalada Hoovannu, A dreamy, romantic love song has a brilliant poetic prologue; concerning, exemplary obsession and Nigam’s voice further modulates it and takes the listener to a different plane altogether.

My Picks:
Hambalada Hoovannu, Chendutiya Pakkadali, Thundh Haikla Sahavasa.

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
