Geetha Govindam Songs - Music Review
Ramesh S Kannan
Geetha Govindam is an upcoming romantic comedy film with Arjun Reddy fame Vijay Devarakonda and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles. Gopi Sundar scores music for the film, whose previous albums this year didn't work much. Let's check out whether Gopi Sundar is able to revive himself with this album or not.
Inkem Inkem Kaavale: The song Inkem Inkem Kaavale needs no introduction as the song rules all the Telugu charts. Gopi Sundar brings his mettle with the ultra-likeable tune and Sid Sriram easily steals our heart with his impeccable singing. The tune and the arrangements come together brilliantly and breathe life to the track and the classical touches with the Biju's Veena in the second interlude, and Gopi's rhythm structure and guitar riffs make this one an easy winner in the soundtrack.
Yenti Yenti: Chinmayi's association with Gopi Sundar in the past has always worked wonders and though Yenti Yenti takes its own time to catch up with the listeners, Chinmayi's singing makes one easily fall in love with the song. The track's techno rhythm gives way to the wonderful classical Sargam in the second interlude by an uncredited singer. The surprising title hooks and it's associated crescendo's works well with the track.
Vachindama: Gopi Sundar has roped Sid Sriram for another classically inclined song with the Srimani's beautiful lyrics, welcoming the bride to the family. Composer expectedly employed the brilliant concoction of Gopi's Nadhaswaram and celebratory percussions. Though Sid Sriram's diction is questionable at few places, Gopi Sundar's tune and arrangements have enough reasons to love.
What the life: What the life is the only song misplaced in an album where Vijay Devarakonda's heavily processed vocals sound too amateurish. The tune is completely perfunctory and casual one from the composer. The song rides mainly on the Vijay Devarakonda's factor and above average interludes.
Kanureppala Kaalam: Gopi Sundar ends the soundtrack with the mandatory melancholy Kanureppala Kaalam and the track is passable without anything extraordinary to offer. Gopi Sundar adequately handles the minimally arranged tune.
Verdict: Gopi Sundar regains his mojo partially with Geetha Govindam and Sid Sriram shines with the two brilliant tracks.
Pick of the Album: Inkem Inkem Kaavaale, Vachindama, Yenti Yenti
