Oopiri Songs - Music Review

Thozha is the official remake of The Intouchables has Nagarjuna and Karthi as a lead and directed by Brindavanam fame Vamsi Paidipally. Gopi Sundar scores music for this score after exquisite couple of albums in Telugu. Let’s check out whether Gopi Sundar manages to create impact with this big outing also or not


Baby Aagothu:

Baby Aagothu is a short peppy ebullient song with entertaining brass arrangements dominated by trumpet and drums. The tune is a cakewalk for Shankar Mahadevan and he delivers the song with ease while propping up the average tune with Srivennela's simple lyrics. 


Oka life:

Oka life, breezy Harris Jayaraj'ish tune handled deftly by ever reliable Karthik and he exudes charms with his vocals throughout the song. GopiSundar's graceful arrangement with live drums, clap sounds and lovely spasmodic violin solo in the interlude make this song worthwhile listen. Srivennela's lyrics depicting the theme "Celebration of life" flows seamlessly along with the tune.


Ayyo Ayyo: 

Ayyo Ayyo folksy predictable tune made interesting by the nifty touches in the orchestration like undermined percussion, nadhaswaram bit along with mandolin interspersed throughout the song. Ranjith and Suchitra are fabulous in this listenable carefree song and Rama JogayyaSastry's lyrics blends well with the folk base, unlike the Tamil version.

Nuvve michavo:

Nuvve michavo rides mainly on the soulful rendition by Vijay Prakash and GopiSundar chip in with the minimal arrangements using mellow guitar strums and keys. The composer creates a tantamount effect with a far minimal setting with ample support from the lead singer. 



Podhama has typical soft rock base and Gopi spruce up the song with his arrangements while Haricharan did a fantastic job in rendering this predictable song which has the stains of GopiSundar's Bangalore days title song. Gopi's splendid usage of violin amidst the cushy drums and guitar strums being the highlight in an otherwise passable song. 


Door No:

Door No's, arrangements bear an undeniable whiff of many songs in this genre and the tune is tried and tested umpteen number of times. However, GeethaMadhuri's energetic rendition makes this one adequately foot tapping and enjoyable song in the album although Gopi didn't add much flavor to the song. 



Eppudu has trademark GopiSundar elements throughout the song with rousing violin usage, guitar strums and hummable tune which is made lively by cheerful arrangements. Karthik lends his support for the beautiful melody with his fab vocals as always.

Verdict: Oopiri, GopiSundar's big Project in Telugu after an excellent repertoire and the composer makes it simple with lively casual songs which flow well without major glitches.

Rating: 3/5

Pick of the Album: Eppudu, Oka life, Nuvvemichavo
