Rajanna - Touches your heart, touches your soul.

So far we have heard of many super hit songs in the combination of Nagarjuna and Keeravani, but for the first time the duo had come up with a unique album catering to a different genre. This movie titled ‘Rajanna’ starring Nagarjuna, Sneha, Baby Aney and Swetha Menon is on the backdrop of the Telangana Razakar Movement in the pre-independence days. The film is being directed by Vijayendra Prasad and produced by Nagarjuna under Annapurna Studios banner. It is slated to release on December 23rd. Keeravani composed the songs based on the situations in the film. Hence by listening to these songs the film lovers might probably follow half of the film’s story.
Gijigadu Music: M.M. Keeravani Lyrics: K. Shivadatta Singer: Sanjeev Chimmalgi, Kaala Bhairava
The album starts with a sweet and moving song ‘Girigadu Thanagoodu Vaidili Rakunnadu Sooreedu Raledhani, Kolaneelo Kamalaalu Thala Dinchukunnayi Poddu Podavaledhani….’. Sung so mellifluously by Sanjeev and supported by Chimmalgi and Kaala Bhairava, the listeners will go all soft and mushy as they listen to it. Keeravani’s music and Shivadatta’s lyrics will take us back to a cherished time making instantaneous connections to beautiful locations and times full of 80s. The song starts off with beautiful piano sound and slowly picks up with vocals blend with drum thumping in country style. The first stanza tells the people’s activities at the time of sun rise in the village. The second stanza tells how the father requests Rajanna to enlighten the sun to go behind the clouds and provide shadow to his sleeping baby as the sun rays are falling directly on the little one. A wonderful start, don’t miss!!!

This song ‘Melukove Chitti Thalli…’ appears to be the climax song that tells the situation where the little girl takes her last breath.

Keeravani composed the entire song without any instrumental synth and simply ends it with a symphonic touch. It’s simply wonderful, soothing to ears and highly recommended!

Rajanna is definitely one of the most interesting albums recorded by Keeravani in recent times. No heavy sound, no mass masalas, no duets, no fantasies, no romance, yet calm and relaxing and you won’t even notice when the disc ends leaving you in deep thoughts after all.
