I was looking forward to this album as I was super impressed with the work that Thaman has done thus far.
Athiloka Sundari - Amazing composition... such a neat mix of traditional elements and rock elements. It was a genius idea to use Vishal Shekhar for this song. He made this song his own and delivered a kickass performance.
You are my MLA - I did not like this song. The composition was good and Dhanunjay did a good job. I was so put off by the lazy job with the lyrics that I ended up disliking the song too.
Private Party - M.C. Vicky and Manasi rocked this song. It would be interesting to see how the picturization for this song would be. Expecting some cool dance movies from the style star. Overall, enjoyed the song.
Blockbuster - Lots of singers in this song. Shreya Ghoshal, Nakash Aziz, Simha Sri Krishna, and Deepu. Even though it is an item song highlighting the heroism, it did not seem that massy. I mean this in a good way.
Telusaa Telusaa - Zubin and Sameera gave a fresh spin to this song. I could see the Thaman signature in this song. I quite enjoyed the song. I will be playing this one in loop for a while. Drooling over Zubin's vocals in this song.
Sarrainodu - Hard Kaur, Brijesh, Sonu Kakkar. Masala song! Didn't care much for the "Doo" "Doo" part.
Overall, it was a well done album with a couple of let downs. Telusaa and Athiloka Sundari stand out. Thaman's effort seemed earnest. He definitely has a distinctive style that can be distinguished in his songs. His selection of singers was interesting and impressive. If any, I would say that the lyrics were a weak point to the sound track. Especially, the lyrics for MLA and Sarrainodu songs ended up making the songs less impactful.
