Tagore > Tagore Audio Review|
With a huge success behind him in the
form of Indra, Chiranjeevi is now all set to storm the
theaters near you as Tagore, which is an adaptation of a Tamil film
Ramana [Vijayakanth, Simran, Ashima]. While Chiru enacts the
role of a tough professor who believes in Gandhian principles and values.
The last time
Chiranjeevi entertained us as Indra, it rained cash and dough at
the box-office. Mani Sharma's music had a big share in the success
of Indra which made the audience sing and swoon to his tunes.
Naturally, Mani Sharma was roped in as the music director for Tagore
too. But all natural things don't have a nourishing effect on us just like
the music of Tagore.
A typical hero introduction/solo song with a lot of food for thought
written by Chandrabose and sung by Shankar Mahadevan.
There's absolutely nothing new in terms of music or singing in this song. Chandrabose's words are penned to send across many messages to Chiru's
fans (listen to the second stanza in particular).
Borrowing heavily from Mahakavi Srisri's phenomenal poem
'Nenu Saitham' , Suddala Ashok Teja
pens additional lyrics, that blend well into Srisri's fire-spewing words,
for this song. This is a thematic song that might have a good effect on
screen than off screen. The ever dependable SPB sings this one with
Though the base beat, that runs throughout the song, is foot-tapping, this
number has nothing to rave about. On repeated hearing you might get hooked
on to this one but that wouldn't last long. Neither Veturi's lyrics
nor singers Mahalaxmi Iyer and Mallikharjun elevate this to
Shreya Ghoshal and Mani Sharma's indispensable singer Udit
Narayan sing this rain song which is worded by Bhuvana Chandra.
The orchestration in this song is so typical of Mani Sharma that even
before you know who the music director is, you would almost blurt out Mani
Sharma's name without even having to strain your gray matter. Listen to it
yourself to know what I am talking about.
You have to listen to this song to actually believe that Mani Sharma can
also go wrong with slow melodious numbers, which are almost his forte,
atleast in most of his albums for Chiru's movies. Remember those hummable
Himaseemallo [Annayya], Abbabba Iddo [Choodalani
Vundi], Bangaaram Tecchi [Iddaru Mitrulu], Sathamaanamannadi [Mrigaraju]
Well my 'vote' goes to them than to this song, which has beats that remind
you of the beats in Cheppave Chirugaali [Okkadu]. Chandrabose makes use of political paraphernalia to pen lyrics for
this love duet sung by Hariharan and Chitra.
This racy number has Jyothika matching steps with Chiranjeevi. Lyrics are
by Suddala Ashok Teja and Mano and Chitra sing this
one. Though the orchestration in this song too reminds you of Mani
Sharma's earlier songs, you end up humming this one as it, sort of,
affects you in the first hearing itself.
