After KendaSampige here comes another Thriller origin movie BHAGYARAJ, the movie had its audio release with no fan fare. The music is scored by Anoop Seelin, lets see how the songs have come out.
1) NAKALU MAADABEDI
Lyrics: V Manohar
Pick of the album for us, the lyrics , music and singing sets the tone of the thriller movie what BHAGYARAJ has to offer. Its very hard to get a rock and roll genre sort of song to get connected in Kannada and this song will surely be one of chart busters in such genre for Kannada as the lyrics from V Manohar and music just blends in. Of course special mention to singer Vaarijashree to have carried it brilliantly. Listneing to this song makes you to listen further what the album has to offer.
2) DA DA DA KANNADA WHAT IS THIS
Singer: L N Shastry
Lyrics: V Nagendraprasad
Well here is the “tamte beats” song for you, seems our audience expect one such song to be around in the album. Lyrically there is not much to talk about the song, as the song seems to be set for a village gathering in a fair sort situation and you have dance around to the “tamte beats”. L N Shastry has done a good job given the lyrics and music. While this song might do justice if the situation demands in the movie,if not this may not not grow upon much.
3) GEEYA GEEYA
Singers: Harish Raghavendra, Shweta Devanahally
The music, lyrics and singing by both Harish and Shweta is good. But, listening to the song gives a feeling that the singing is a bit on fast track compared to music. Looks like a situational song for the lead actors falling in love. Except for the seemingly ‘not in sync’ between vocals and music, the song is otherwise good.
4) MANGANA KAIYALI MAANIKYA
Singer: Arjun Adapalli
Lyrics: Jagadish Nadanalli
After a great opening song of the album, with two passable songs this song lifts the album. This song erases doubts that the movie is truly a thriller to watch out for.
5) NINNAYA SANGADA
Singers: Rajesh Krishnan, Samanvitha sharma
Lyrics: Jayanth kaikini
Smooth and neat is what you feel listening to the song. The song has some soulful singing by both Rajesh Krishnan and Samanvitha. And of course as always Jayanth Kaikini lyrics gives opportunity to the musicians and singers to be soulful. All in all a Beautiful song to end the album.
On the closing note as the movie has been positioned as a thriller,we would have expected a few movie theme bits to tune the audience expectations. Nevertheless the album is promising and sets the right tone to the audience to watch out for the movie.
Nam Rating 3.5/5
