'Sainikudu'... Music Review

'Sainikudu' (meaning Soldier) ... the next avatar of Prince Mahesh Babu is expected to hit the cinemas this November. The audio of this flick was released as a 'Diwali gift' to the music lovers. Wow.. what a gift it is turning out to be !!! Harris Jeyaraj, the music director, has given a refreshing and a entertaining album. Even when it can't be termed as exceptionally innovative music, Sainikudu - has nice flavoured songs which I can see clearly fitting the Mahesh's presense on the screen.

Let me individually comment on the songs:
1. Aadapilla - (Hariharan and Chitra):
This is a normal run-of-the-mill Telugu Song. I call it the Hyderabad-Share-auto Genre. A foot-tapping number. Hariharan's voice is the right fit here.

2. Byla Bylamo - (Lewis,Anushka, & Sunitha)
What an opening to this song !!! It turns your senses on.. just by the start.. Zuvvvaanam..jamaikkam..ohzzaana..baley... Great music. A fast jazzy number.

3. Go Go Adhigo - (Kay Kay)
Again a great music. Solo song. Guessing that this may be the title/intro song for the prince. Kay Kay has done a great job.

4. Mayeera - (SPB, Unnikrishnan, Kavitha)
Here comes the masterpiece. Addictive song. A slow melodious number. Melody and SPB - What else you would want from a song. Jus can't wait to see the picturization of this song. Unni and Kavitha sing the anupallavi and saranam. A nice effort by Harris in being choosy about the singers for pallavi, anupallavi and saranam. My top spot goes to this song in the album.

5. Orrugaule Pilla - (Karthik,Karunya,Harini and Malathi)
If you loved "thaiya thaiya" (From Uyirae, Chaiya chaiya (Dil Se) )... you will enjoy this. This seems like a remix of the same tune. the voices also suggest the same. The jolly mood of the song is enjoyable. Harini's voice stands out.

6. Sogasuchooda - (Shreya Ghosal)
This is a melodious carnatic number by Shreya. The Ghatam is superb especially when hearing in head phones :) .

Overall, Sainikudu promises a lot atleast on the musical front. I see this to be a sensational hit. After the blockbuster Pokiri, the expectations from Mahesh in Sainikudu is high and this music is its first success. Waiting eagerly for yet another sensational Mahesh movie.
