Kannada music is surely coming off age!! New breed of music directors are really promising and giving a refreshing feel to Kannada film music. Music director Arjun is back after Nam Areal Ond Dina in Birugaali, choreographer turned director Harsha's next venture with Chetan, Sitara Vaidya and Karishma in the lead.
7 foot tapping numbers with some great lyrics make this album a worth hearing one!!
The album kicks off with an out and out mass number "Machchi Sachchi" with lyrics by Shivnanjegowda is rendered beautifully by Shankar Mahadevan.
Shreya Ghoshal next builds up the tempo with her superb vocals in the truly poetic "Hoovina Baanadante". Lyrics by Jayant Kaikini are very impressive!
The next song "Helbid Helbide" sung by Arjun and lyrics by Kaviraj and Mahesh Kumar is an ultimate dance number which will surely hit the top of the charts! Arjun's accented Kannada and th e rock touch given makes this an enjoyable number.
"Amma Amma" is a soothing number sung by Arjun with lyrics by Ranganath.
Beware!! Mohit Chauhan joins in here to compete with other non-kannada singers and he rocks with Shamita Malnad in the romantic "Madhura Pisumaatige" written by the lover poet Jayant Kaikini. The lyrics, the music and rendition of the song by the singers make this a hummable song.
"Jojo Laali" in the voice of Chitra and lyrics by Ranganath is a good slow song.
Arjun gives a different touch to even the patho song "Idu Nanna Kathe" by using two voices - Vijay Prakash and Hamsapriya. The lyrics by Harshapriya are just ok!
The title bit "Birugaali" is ok to hear!
There are versions of "Amma Amma" by Srinivas and "Helbide Helbide" by Jassie Gift to add to the album's completeness.
The picturization of the songs in Greece and the storyline of the movie has surely invoked more interest in the movie in the people's mind and hope it will live up to the expectations.
All the best to Harsha!!
