Music Review (Telugu): Keshava

Music Review (Telugu): Keshava
Music Composer: Sunny MR

Telusa Neeku Bahusa rides mainly on the husky sensual vocals of Shalmali Kholgade complimenting the Krishna Chaitanya's lyrics. However, as a composer sunny MR aces in delivering groovy synth dominated arrangements and the title hook is adequately catchy enough especially in lead singer's vocals. Yedisthe Rareveru is Sunny MR's territory and his regular Arijit Singh behind the mic delivers the fine job while the background is dominated by Roland's Electric guitar and wonderful bass line by the composer itself. Though not an exquisite track, the song clasps the listener till it ends.

Po Poradi is another high-octane song filled with modular synths and haunting bass line by Sunny MR and tune is less captivating one. The song may gel well with the visuals but not as a standalone track. Arijit Singh is adequate in crooning this grungy track. Sunny MR adds punch to the energetic traditional Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam with Roland Fernandes Electric guitar while the string of singers led by Harshika Gudi did a fine job behind the mic and kept the mood afloat till the end of this 3-minute song. However Kaala Bhairava's recreated version works as a whole package with interesting arrangments. The soundscape created with absolutely enthralling 60's jazz accompanied by James Bond'ish sounds adds much charm to the traditional melody.

Verdict: Sunny MR continues to churn out his unique sounds for Telugu and still his Swamy Ra Ra with Sudheer Varma is the best from the composer.

My Rating: 3/5

Pick of the Album: Telusa Neeku Bahusa, Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam (Re-created), Yedisthe
