Nagavalli-Aptly suitable songs for the film

P Vasu’s ‘Chandramukhi’ starring Rajnikanth, Jyothika, Nayantara, Prabhu and Vadivelu is the block buster of 2005. Now the director is coming up with its sequel titled ‘Nagavalli’. With factors like this, there are immense expectations from this film that stars Venkatesh in dual role, Anushka in title role and Richa Gangopadhyay, Kamalinee Mukherjee, Priyamani, Vimala Raman, Sraddha Das, Poonam Kaur, Dr Brahmanandam, etc., in other important roles. While the music of ‘Chandramukhi’ was composed by Vidya Sagar, ‘Nagavalli’ has music my Guru Kiran, a new entrant. Lyrics for all the songs are written by Chandrabose.
Kabadi Kabadi Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: Ranjith, Jogi, Sunitha
Ok, the album starts with a real good mass song. It’s a song on Kabaddi game and goes very fast. Chandra Bose penned catchy lyrics ‘Kelo kelo kelo….kabadi kelo’ and the fast beat keeps you foot tapping. Vocals are rendered by Sunita, Ranjith, Jogi and chorus. I liked the sticks beats that come in the middle of the song. With colorful costumes, this song is sure to appeal good on silver screen. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.
Vandanalu Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: Rajesh, Nanditha, Shamitha
‘Vandanaalu Vandanaalu Vela Vandanaalu…..’ has a very old tune but I enjoyed the drum beats even though there is nothing special about the song. It has got a typical Venkatesh brand with nice upbeat tune, and sounds quite good. The song is in praise of the protagonist of the film and it might also impress the audience in theaters. The lyrics written by Chandra Bose are fairly good. Rajesh, Nandita and Shamita sang this song. A quite good tune, overall.
Ghirani Ghira Ghirani Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: S.P. Balasubrahmanyam
I feel this is the most powerful song in the album and the lyrics are powerful too. SP Balasubrahmaniam rendered his voice and he changed his powerful voice according to the song. This being the sequel of ‘Chandramukhi’, the song appears to be in the situation where Raju will make Chandramukhi dance in the flash back. Instead of ‘Laka laka laka laka…’, SPB says ‘Haura haura…’ in this song which is said to be Venkatesh’s mannerism in ‘Nagavalli’. Guru Kiran’s composition is good although not great.
Omkara Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: Chitra
‘Omkaram Abhinaya Vedam’ is a classical song sung by Chitra. I needn’t make a special mention about her singing since her voice is as sweet as P Suseela and S Janaki. By listening to the lyrics of the song, the situation is understood that Nagavalli will perform the classical dance in the centre of the court. Guru Kiran’s composition is very neat and clean. He chose the aptly suitable instruments to compose this semi-classical number.
Abhimani Lenide Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: S.P. Balasubrahmanyam
‘Abhimani Lenide’ is composed in line with ‘Devuda Devuda…’ in ‘Chandramukhi’ but it could not impress me to that extent. The track starts off with very heavy drum beats and chorus. According to the lyrics of the song, no heroes exist without fans. Although the drum beats are catchy, it is uninteresting to listen to it due to the heavy sound system. Guru Kiran composed this song in a very old style and reminds us of some group songs in 1980s. The instrumentation is also very old. Despite SPB lending his voice to this track, I’m not very keen on listening to it once again.
Ra Ra (Remix) Music: Gurukiran Lyrics: Chandrabose Singer: Nityasri, Sricharan (Rap)
We all have enjoyed the sensational number ‘Ra Ra…Na Chentaku Ra Ra’ in ‘Chandramukhi’, isn't it folks! Now the same song has been composed in a remix form with western beats by inserting some English words in this film ‘Nagavalli’. Nityasri and Sricharan sang this rap number and it might create a haunting feel to the youth.
Overall, the audio of ‘Nagavalli’ is just ok when compared to the songs in ‘Chandramukhi’. But the songs appear to be aptly suitable ones to the situations in the film. Hence it might appeal good as we watch the film.
