Chords & Notes
Tapana... Aditya Music... Rs. 20
THE MUSIC of Tapana fails to rise to the level of being called `good music'. It remains at a mediocre level with very commonplace lyrics. The very first number I love my darling doesn't inspire at all. Sa ri ma pa gives hope by way of sincere rendition by Mallikarjuna. Gundello Penchukunna... rises above the average level mainly due to the professional singing by the two singers, S.P. Charan and Usha.
On side B, two songs that stand out are Nyayama neeku prema and Kalalanni Theerela. Nyayama... is soulful and singer Srinivas keeps the melody intact. Kalalanni... is racy and foot-tapping when compared with other songs in the tape and well sung by Srikanth.
Rudraksh... T-Series... Rs. 50
THE MUSIC for this is by different people - the majority of songs are composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, while Vishal composes one and our Hyderabadi Shashi Preetam scores music for two numbers. Therefore, the album is a melange of sounds - mostly fast-paced but there is nothing spiritual about it although the movie is supposed to be a spiritual thriller.
There is an underlying similarity in the first two songs - Ishq Khudai (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) and Ishq Hai Nasha Nasha (Vishal Shekhar) which are slightly fast-paced songs. There is a remix of Ishq Khudai on side B. The song worth hearing on side A is Dil Ki Aahein (Shashi Preetam) sung well by K.K. and Chitra. It has a melodic feel about it and is soft on the ear.
The instrumental Kya Dard Hai makes use of a bit of Oriental music in the initial part of the orchestration although the flute predominates later on.
Here the trio of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy prove that they are good in instrumentals - (remember Armaan). The last song Rudraksh on this side has a few chants woven into it. The second composition of Shashi Preetam Bole Dole has a slight Sufi touch to it although the song touches the high octaves. Chitra sings well. A heavy sound of breathing ushers in Kya Dard Hai which is sung by Richa Sharma (who is good) and Shankar.
Another soft and slow number with interesting orchestration. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's effort is different but not top-notch as in Dil Chahta Hai which still remains their best.
