1. Song: Freedom Freedom
Singers: Devi Sri Prasad, Suchith Suresan
Lyrics: Krishna Chaitanya
The song straight away starts with the word “Freedom”. It is mostly expected to be an Intro song for the hero. The lyrics penned by Krishna Chaithanya are inspiring; it mainly talks about the free, enthusiastic and spirited nature of this young generation. The song has good scope for dance. The song cannot sustain as standalone as some of the beats are inserted only for dance purpose (they do not sync). DSP as a singer has done a better job than as a composer. Overall, the song is not a great song but definitely a decent song.
2. Song: Neejathaga
Singers: Karthik,Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics : Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry
This is a perfect duet song. The visuals out in teasers are pleasant and a splendid watch. Two popular singers have lent their voices and they steal the show. The interludes are good. The lyrics are soothing and poetic and surely this song will rock in the coming days with its melody. Overall, it is a lovable song which will instantly connect with you.
3. Song: ‘Ayyo Paapam’
Singers: Ranjith, Mamata Sharma
Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
This is the item song of the album. Unfortunately it was leaked on the internet long back along with the video. Ranjith and Mamata Sharma’s vocals are apt and decent enough. Charan’s energetic dance will surely be a special attraction. It is a song for the front benchers. There is definitely enough energy in the song but it falls into a routine music again. It even has many glimpses of DSP’s songs itself! The song surely hits the pulse of the target audience!
4. Song: ‘Cheliya Cheliya’
Lyrics: Chandra Bose
Definitely, it is the song of the album. It seems like this song will be the anthem of the film, which will be repeated in the background score as well. The song describes the intense feeling of sadness and anger experienced by the hero after his separation with his lady love. The quality of the music effects is commendable! KK’s voice hogs the limelight. On the flip side, the music is very much similar to DSP’s Oseravalli’s “Brathakaali” song and one can easily recognise it.
5. Song: Oye Oye
Singers: David Simon,Andrea
Lyrics : Sri Mani
It is a kind of speed breaker song in the entire album. It doesn’t have any specialities to talk about. Lyrics are mediocre; vocals are decent and not great. This is one of the very boring songs of DSP. The visuals are out and the song is shot in the backdrop of a beach. Cherry looks stylish along with Amy Jackson’s skin show. Very boring song and can be easily skipped.
6. Song: ‘Pimple Dimple’
Singers: Sagar,Ranina Reddy
Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
Here comes the kutthu duet song of the album. It will surely work big time with the masses. The lyrics are very catchy and rhyming at many places. Doesn’t sound fresh, but it has all the ingredients that will catch the pulse of mass song lovers. The vocalists have done their job and the actual fate of this song depends on how masses receive it and how Charan represents it visually on screen!
DSP and Mega Power Star Ramcharan- definitely a crazy Tollywood combination, right? This being the first time these two worked together, the expectations were very high. And that might have affected the DSP fans a little bit because he has composed music according to the story and requirement of the filmmakers rather than making it a ‘mass’ album or extremely ‘class’ album. It is a mixed bag with all sorts of songs- an item song, a youthful song, two melodies, a kuthu song and a sad song. This first combination will surely find favour with the masses upon repeated hearing, along with visuals. Yevadu is a decent album from DSP which neither stuns us with its excellence nor shocks with its bad tunes. It is a good, clean and neat album.
Picks of the Album: Chelia Chelia, Neejathaga and Freedom.
Final Verdict: Wholesome music package!
