Race Gurram is an upcoming mass entertainer starring Stylish star Allu Arjun and Shruti Hassan in the lead roles. The film is directed by “Kick” fame Surender Reddy. Music for the film is composed by S.S.Thaman. Here is the exclusive music review of the highly anticipated album:
The album begins with a bang with Boochade Boochade sung by Shreya Ghoshal, Rahul Nambiar and Naveen Madhav. The track has great undercurrent electrifying energy throughout its progress. The orchestration is not too loud for hearing and has great fun elements associated with it. Shreya Ghoshal pulls off the song with great panache and the harmonium touches in between add to the value of the composition.
The next track Sweety arrives with electric guitar prelude and groovy rhythm. The lilting guitars and laid back style in which it is composed is captivating. Siddharth Mahadevan rendered the track with great perfection and the groovy style was greatly presented. This track may emerge as the right melody in the album.
After a laid back take off, the album launches the mass flavor with Cinema Choopisthava Mama that arrives next. However, the track is well blended with hard rock and local drums making it a good attempt of a new essence in mass songs. The power packed guitars give the right punch for the track in the right timing. Simha and Varkuppala Yadagiri sang it with an impactful folk flavor making it even more enjoyable.
The groovy flavor is back with Gala Gala composed with an interesting blend of House and Hip-Hop genres. The rhythm is quite laid back and the relaxing guitars strike the right chord. The usage of flute leading to traditional nadaswaram does the right wondrous magic. However, the over electronic styled voices could have been avoided.
It is time for 90s Pop style track Down Down sung by the composer Thaman and the female lead Shruti Hassan. The vocalists give a unique flavor to the track with their confident singing and the orchestration is blended with the right mastery and the House mix touches add great value to the track. Undoubtedly this track stands out as the highlight of the album for what it offers.
The title track Race Gurram arrives for the grand finale with a plethora of instruments like saxophone, electric guitar, and great local rhythms and rightful use of chorus. The composition is greatly made with the mass appeal sung by the veteran Usha Uthup. It is a cakewalk for a legendary singer like her, and she makes sure the track is phenomenally presented.
Race Gurram is a power packed album from the combination of S.S.Thaman and Surender Reddy who earlier gave a blockbuster album Kick. This album lives up to the expectations without compromising on the melody aspect along with entertainment factor.
