Film: Mirchi; Music Director: Devi Sri Prasad; Singers: Chinna Ponnu, Mika Singh, Vijay Prakash, Kailash Kher, Jaspreet Jasz, Suchitra & Devi Sri Prasad. Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry.
“Mirchi” album has 7 tracks, featuring the voices of Devi Sri Prasad, Jaspreet Jasz, Suchitra, Chinna Ponnu, Mika Singh, Vijay Prakash, Kailash Kher, Jaspreet. While Kailash Kher has crooned two songs, the rest of the singers have one song each to their credit.
Song 1: Mirchi Mirchi; Singer: Chinna Ponnu; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
Chinna Ponnu has rendered this song at ease giving the song the bass effect which is best suited for a title song. Chorus team has done their part well. A trumpet and percussion arrangement from DSP brings in the typical mass feel to the song. Lyrics by Ramajogayya Sastry are catchy, Esp… Mirchi mirchi mirchi lanti kurrode, Meera meera meesam thippi missile lage dookaade…
Song 2: Yahoon Yahoon; Singer: Mika Singh; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
The song begins with the voice of Devi Sri Prasad shouting the words “All the Boys n the Gals n the Gals n the Boys on the floor…” and the song picks itself from there. English – Hindi – Telugu lyrics by Ramajogayya Sastry is a valued addition to the song. The song begins with a variant of the party style and then catches up with the beat of the song with “Khol Teri Khidki…” The song came out well because of the background music which is done very well. Mika Singh dominates in the beginning of the song and the Chorus comes to the party to complement.
Song 3: Idhedho Bagundhe; Singer: Vijay Prakash; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
Love feelings are beautifully penned down by Ramjogayya Sastry and it is sung by Vijay Prakash. This melody is sure to be on the top numbers of the album because of the excellent vocals selected by the DSP. It turns out to be a mesmerizing number because of the magic voice of Vijay Prakash and the combination of the music instruments used is quite nice.
Song 4: Pandagala; Singer: Kailash Kher; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
This number has an emotional shade to it, sort of like build up after some important incident at Richa’s place. The percussion sets the pace of the song. Kailash Kher does justice to the song with varying voice. A lyric portray heroism and tries to convey some in-depth message.
Song 5: Barbie Girl; Singers: Jaspreet Jasz, Suchitra; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
Strings in the beginning of the song says it all, a romantic number. DSP voice gels well with the situation and tune. Jaspreet Jasz and Suchitra deliver this song at ease that brings out love in air feel. With the way the song has been going in terms of music and tone, one could easily mistake it for the “A to Z AP Motham rasi echesthane” song from KING. The song breaks midway and takes a different dimension in the second part making it different. The cowboy style picturisation of Barbie Girl sounds n looks better on screen.
Song 6: Nee Choopula; Singer: Kailash Kher; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
Ramajogayya Sastry has penned down the lyrics for this song sung by Kailash Kher. Kailash Kher makes this song special with his voice. The humming part gives more feel to the song.
Song 7: Darlingey; Singer: Devi Sri Prasad, Geeta Madhuri; Lyrics: Ramajogayya Sastry
DSP Peppy song for the masses, his voice complements the music, in a way accentuates the song one can say. The female singer, Geeta Madhuri also has done a good job. DSP, though, takes the cake. The song is very impressive in patches and with the visuals; one may find it very good.
Given his tremendous success rate and proven potential, listeners do expect something new from the energetic DSP. Nothing different about this album, but definitely has few appealing sing-along’s to keep the audio outlets happy…
My Recos – Mirchi Mirchi, Idhedho Bagundhe & Yahoon Yahoon…
