Music Review (Telugu): Duvvada Jagannadam

Music Review (Telugu): Duvvada Jagannadam
Music Composer: Devi Sri Prasad

The title song's tune, as well as intermediate Ganapathi chanting accompanied by the hodgepodge of classical and Percussion elements, come off as archaic one while Keba's racy guitar and Vijay Prakash's energetic vocal helps to elevate the song from the mediocre level. The title hook also sounds to be a pedestrian one from the composer. Asmaika is an easy winner from the composer and the track's astonishingly catchy background rhythm background by pitch perfect singing by MLR Karthikeyan and ever sweet Chitra's vocals make this one earworm stuff from DSP.  Kalyan's Konnakol and classical cues in the interludes blends smoothly with the appealing tune.

Mechukko's tune and Chiranjeevi invoked lyrics are purely for the purpose of whistle worthy moments for the on screen but not for the music lovers. Nakash Aziz sails through the typical Telugu composition effortlessly while Babu's trombone and guitars being the only solace in this composition. Seeti Maar is another techno dominated sounds with little recall value both in terms of tunes as well as arrangements. There is hardly any interesting elements in this 4 minutes song while Jaspreet Jasz and Rita's digitised voices also unable to salvage this tedious track from DSP. Box Baddhalai Poyi is an another mass track to showcase Allu Arjun's dance prowess and DSP has very little to offer except for the mass beats to clasp the audience to be in awe of Allu Arjun's show. Sagar and Geeta Madhuri's aces the song's of this genre by now and the tune is the cakewalk for them while Bhaskara Bhatla's lyrics set the right mood for the song. However, the track comparatively catchy compared to other tracks.

Verdict: DSP comes back to his routine with DJ after an impressive Nenu local and the result is underwhelming except for the ultra-catchy Asmaika.

My Rating: 6/10

Pick of the Album: Asmaika, Box Baddhalai Poyi.
