Honganasu - Audio

Hongansu - Audio

Starring :Prem Kumar, Any Mehata, Naveen Krishna
Music : Hamsalekha
Lyrics : Hamsalekha
Producer : Ajay R Gowda
Director : Rathanaja

Lagge Lagge Sahyadrige sung by Chitra and Karthik is a fast number describing sahyadri ranges. Karthik is good to hear. Good music.

Kuvari Kuvari sung by Rajesh Krishnan is once again fast number with nice words describing a girl. Typical Hamsalekha style. Great rendition by Rajesh.

Baa Nagu Nannondige sung by Vijay Yesudas and Chitra is a Malayalam mix song. Good to hear Chitra and Vijay Yesudas!

Honganasu, the title song sung by Shaan is quite melodious. Shaan carries the song well. Pleasant one to hear.

Chigurodeda sung by Shreya Ghoshal is a cool melodious song with good lyrics. Shreya is asusual good. Good Fusion of classical and western styles.

Kandu Konde sung by Hemanth Kumar and Shreya Ghoshal is a nice duet with good lyrics. Reminds of old Hamsalekha hits.

More concentration towards lyrics and words than music by Hamsalekha for a couple of songs. Thats my opinion. But its a good album!

Gooli - Audio

Gooli - Audio

Starring : Sudeep, Mamatha Mohandas

Music : Anoop Seelin
Lyrics : P Satya
Producer : Ramu
Director : P Satya

Sum Sumne Yaako sung by Nanditha and Karthik is a good duet. Music is pleasant but resembles Ilayaraja style. Lyrics are simple and pleasing.

Kaddu Kaddu sung by Rajesh Krishnan and Chitra is a sensuous duet. Lyrics are good and music suits the mood of the song.

Gooli sung by Rajesh Krishnan is a drunkard number. Mostly suited for Sudeep's image n role in the movie. Rajesh is as usual good.

Jeevana Hudukuta sung by Hariharan is a slow song with good lyrics. Hariharan is good!

Dealige Dealu sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Chitra, P. Satya and Sudeep is one more song about rowdyism and love with male and female portraying their view. Very plain! Shankar Mahadevan sings well. This song will surely remind 'Hodi Maga'.

Again..... an average album.

Soumya Rao is back! So Nice to hear her! Udit - plz improve your pronounciation! Simple lyrics!Gurukiran's tunes seem to be repetitive.

Good song to listen about leading life "bindaas" mix of bhangra beats gives a different touch

Kallu Mama , Gurukiran, Sonu Kakkar,Lyrics : Kaviraj

Sounds like an item number. Has resemblances to the style used in "Bin Laden Nan Mava"Sonu Kakkar's voice suits the song. Gurukiran as usual croons ..... no need to say how

Karthik and Mathangi infuse life into this peppy dance number. Not much to be said about lyrics.

Gaalipata - Audio


Yograj Bhat’s next movie “Gaalipata” with music composed by Harikrishna doesn’t impress much though it has 2-3 hummable songs.

The title track “Aakasha Ishte Yaakidiyo” with Jayant Kaikini’s lyrics and Tippu and Kunal Ganjawala’s vocals is a youthful number with fast pacy music. Both the playback singers infuse life into the song. Quite catchy!

"Minchaagi Neenu Baralu” sung by Sonu Nigam and lyrics by Jayant Kaikini reminds us of “Anisutide”. What impresses is the unconventional lyrics and good rendition by Sonu. The best song of the album I feel.

“Nadhimdhim Tanananaa” sung by Chitra with lyrics by Yograj Bhat is a semi-classical number which leaves a feel good feeling because of Chitra.

“Kavithe” sung by Vijay Prakash and lyrics by Hrudayashiva is a patho song. Too slow and a bit boring to listen.

“Jeeva Kaleva” sung by Sonu Nigam and lyrics by Yograj Bhatt is a slow number depicting the loneliness. Tune of Minchaagi Neenu Baralu…

“Aha Bedaru Bombe” sung by Udit Narayan and Anuradha Sriram and lyrics by Jayant Kaikini is a duet which could have presented better. It starts off well but fails to impress after the second stanza.

On the whole its an average album.


Thanks for all the views and reviews about the review :) I would always take any album without any comparision and expectation. So even Gaalipata I would take without comparision with Mungaaru Male or any other album/music director.

Minchaagi has been picturized well. Its not that great as compared to Anisutide in Mungaaru Male. Keepin Anisutide apart, this song has come out really well with innovative sets on the beach, the fort and on the lush green hills.

Lets wait for other songs. Surely the good team would have added more to the songs visually. All the best to Gaalipata team! I'm sure no other movie in Kannada in the recent times has evoked so much interest and expectations. Hope Yogaraj Bhatt will live up to these expectations of WE- the Kannadigas.
