Arerey Pasi Manasa

Artists[s]:        Narendra, Shravana Bhargavi

Lyricist:           Sirivennela Sitaramasastry

 This is the sort of song you know will be good when you start listening to it. It has a great beat with a lot of zeal. The accordion is used to good effect. The singing especially Narendra’s voice comes across well. The lyrics are also decent. The song is foot tapping number and well worth a listen. The only criticism if any is with the editing at some parts.

Sye Andre Nannu

Artists[s]:        Shreya Goshal, Rahul Sipiligunj, Deepu

Lyricist:           E.S.Murthy

 This song is the type that is Mani Sharma’s bread and butter. Shreya has done a perfect job in the singing department. The male singers are also good but not quite as distinct. The song though, misses the mark on the earthly feel it tries for, and comes across as a bit too mechanical at some portions.  The lyrics can’t really define a song like this but are still pretty good. Overall the song is pretty good but isn’t one you could go on listening to on a loop.

 Krishna Vande Jagadgurum

Artists[s]:        S.P.Balasubrahmanyam

Lyricist:           Sirivennela Sitaramasastry

 This an epic nine and a half minute song that in all honesty most people will skip. It is executed very well, the music is only of adequate amount and Mani doesn’t shy away from giving the voice the importance it requires when it comes to the story telling. The lyrics in a song like this are very important and they are right on the money. SPB’s voice suits the song perfectly in the rendition. It is definitely the best song on the album and in fact quite an interesting piece from Mani Sharma. The only criticism is that the transitions are not as good as the rest of the sound at certain places.

Spicy Spicy Girl

Artists[s]:        Hemachandra, Chaitra, Shravana Bhargavi

Lyricist:           Sirivennela Sitaramasastry 

This is one of those generic songs. The song fails to live up to the standard of the first three songs. The song is not particularly bad or good. It just fails to make an impression. The basic problem lies in the music, it seems uninspiring. The singing and lyrics are average.

Ranga Marthanda

Artists[s]:        Raghu Babu, Hemachandra, Sai Madhav Burra

Lyricist:           Sai Madhav Burra. 

The song is set to a fast beat and has OK lyrics. The music itself seems to resemble old songs from Venkatesh’s movies at points. Also one cannot fail to see the Dev D inspired brass band portion. Overall all the sounds together don’t have a single unifying thread. Still it isn’t too boring and some people may find it interesting.

Chal Chal Chal

Artists[s]:        Joanna

Lyricist:           Sai Madhav Burra.

This is the bad apple in this album, the singing, music and lyrics are all par at best. The tune neither has a soft melody nor does it have a powerful beat. It feels boring. The singing is not the best. The only bad track in this album.

 Parinamam (Instrumental Track)

 Parinamam is a BGM track and therefore cannot be judged without the visual accompaniment. However on its own, the music seems compelling and pretty solid. It strikes the balance of not being too over the top while still drawing you in. 

Album ★★★★★★★★☆☆

 Krishna Vande Jagadgurum is a definite must listen for anybody. It is Mani Sharma at what he does best. The title song deserves special mention due to the complexity of handling such a long song without making it sound repetitive.
