Devi Sri Prasad (DSP) and S.S.Thaman - Telugu film music revolves around these two maestros. You do not hear any other composers name since all the big movies are bagged by these composers. If you need quality it is DSP or if time is a constraint then it is Thaman. However there is one music director who is doing some noise and making his presence felt – He is Anoop Rubens!
Anoop is also advancing in this musical chair game. He is beating out DSP in quality and Thaman in speed. Big movies like Manam, Rabhasa and Heart Attack are now in his hands. He is even composing the music for Naga Chaitanya - Srinivasa Reddy upcoming film. Anoop impressed the youth with his music in Ishq, Poola Rangadu, Prema Kavali and Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde (GJG). In fact Anoop should get major credit for Nitin’s hit movies Ishq and GJG. He also worked for the film Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap.
He does justice to both western and melody tunes and is equally adept in providing background music. Nag noticed this and offered him the chance to do ‘Manam’ movie. He is moving in the ranks while giving a stiff competition to both DSP and Thaman. If DSP and Thaman are not available, it is Anoop whom they are approaching without any doubt. Anoop has now become a good option for these directors.
Talent gets showcased only when there is a challenge and same with the quality. Let us hope the competition between DSP, Thaman and Anoop will offer good music to all the Telugu film lovers.
