Maadesha - Shivanna's next!! - Audio

Cast : Shivraj Kumar, Sonu Bhatia, Ravi Kaale, Ravi Belegere
Producer : B M Govinda Murthy
Director : Ravi Srivatsa
Music : Mano Murthy

Ravi Srivatsa is back after the debacle of 'Ee Rajeev Gandhi Alla" .... Maadesha and this time he his back with the best he can get - Shivraj Kumar and Mano Murthy.

"Tirugo Ee Bhoomige" sung by Vijay Prakash with lyrics by V Nagendra Prasad and Kaviraj starts off with tune of James Bond theme. The song expresses the heroic acts of the prime character in the movie. Not much in lyrics and very average music.

"Taarammayya" sung by Hemanth and Sunidhi Chauhan and lyrics by V Manohar sounds like an item number with some naughty singing by Sunidhi. Hemanth supports well.

"Munjaane Manjaagu" sung by Kunal Ganjawala and Sunidhi Chauhan with lyrics by Kaviraj is a nice peppy duet beautified very well with the guitar music. The lyrics are also very good.

"Maadesha" sung by Gurukiran(???) and lyrics by V Nagendra Prasad. Fast beats, music and different voice of Gurukiran with an underground and mafia world touch make this an interesting song.

"Lahari" sung by Sonu Nigam and lyrics by Jayant Kaikini is a nice song with lyrics telling about the feel of love. Sonu surely needs pronounciation classes if he has to come up clean in his future
Kannada Album.

"Gantu Gantu" sung by Hemanth, Keshav and Srividya and lyrics by Hrudayashiva is a song with folk touch.

"Lahari" again in its female version and who else other than Shreya Ghoshal can take it to the musically best heights. She sounds much much better than Sonu in this version. She gives a neat rendition of this beautifully written number.

A good album overall with the great "Lahari" and "Munjaane Manjaagu"! Quite different from the usual Mano Murthy. Got to see wait and see how the songs would be brought on screen.

Taj Mahal - Audio

Taj Mahal
Starring : Ajay, Pooja Gandhi
Music : Abhimann
Director : R. Chandru
Producer : T Shivashankar Reddy

"Khushiyaagide Yeko Ninnindale" sung by Kunal Ganjawala is a melodious number expressing a guy's love for his girl. The lyrics by R Chandru are simple and music suits the mood of the song very well.

"Neenendu Nannavanu" sung by Shreya Ghoshal and lyrics by R Chandru is the best song of the album expressing the girl's longing for her guy. Shreya's beautiful rendition of the song adds a great to its simple yet soothing music.

"Hoovantha Preeti Mullada Mele" sung by Hariharan and Supriya with lyrics by K Kalyan is a song about parted lovers and their longing for being together. Music is good with different flavors probably suiting the visuals.
"Nee Nanna Hrudaya" sung by Rajesh Krishnan and lyrics by Abhimaan is the male version of Neenendu Nannavanu aptly sung by Rajesh. The lyrics are very touching.

"Kolluvudaadare Kondubidu" sung by Badri Prasad and lyrics by Manju Honnavar is a patho song wherein a guy is repenting for his mistake in love. Badri Prasad impresses with his singing.

"Ibbaru Preetina" sung by Abhiman and lyrics by Manjunanth Lava wherein a guy is reminding his girl about the love they had shared. Abhiman's voice is good and he surely has potential to become a good singer cum composer.

"Preeti Annodu" sung by Chetan with lyrics by Lokesh Krishna is a tiny bit about love.

Good album!! The songs and music are soothing and fresh. Good one from Abhimann!!

Khushiyagide video has come out well though it reminds us of the sets of some previous super hit songs.

Golden Star's Bombaat


Producer : Rockline Venkatesh
Director : D Rajendrababu
Music : Mano Murthy

The much hyped audio of Bombaat - Idu Ganeshana Aata was released on Golden Star's birthday today (2nd July 2008). Here Golden Star teams up with Ramya with for the first time.

The combination of Mano Murthy -Jayant Kaikini - Sonu Nigam once again is interesting here.

The album kicks off with the solo "Maatinalli Helalaarenu" sung by Sonu Nigam with lyrics by Jayant Kaikini. The song is a slow melodious number praising the beauty of an unknown girl/lover. Sonu delivers the song well. The lyrics are innovative and interesting.

"Strawberry Kenne" sung by Rajesh Krishnan and Supriya Ramakrishnaiah and lyrics by Kaviraj is a melodious and cute duet with simple lyrics. Rendered very well by Rajesh and Supriya. Rajesh's voice shows lots of variations in this song through which he proves he is no less than other "imported" singers.

"I Am So Bombaat" sung by Gurukiran(???) and lyrics by Kaviraj. Sounds like intro song of the hero. Not much content in lyrics and also Gurukiran's singing.

"Maatinalli Helaballenu" sung by the enchanting Shreya Ghoshal is the female version of "Maatinalli Helalaarenu" is a superb extension with good lyrics and soothing music. As usual, Shreya steals the show with her singing.

"Chinna Hele Hegiruve" is a duet sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal with lyrics by Jayant Kaikini. Kaikini's words bring some freshness to the duet and are aptly rendered.

The music though not that great is pleasant to hear. Worth listening. Music will pick up slowly for sure!!!
